It's All About teamwork

Are We A Dream Team Waiting to Happen?

Let's talk about a cringy subject: design gone wrong. 

We've all heard the horror story; You or someone you know hired a designer to create a new logo and/or website, and the project went awry. In the past when I've seen this happen, the root of the issue has always been the same: Either proper expectations weren't established from the start, or the client and designer just were't compatible — or worse; both.

Hiring a designer is a huge investment, and I don't want any horror stories here!

Let's make sure we're a great fit for each other.

 

You...

Are ambitious, driven, and business-savvy, but also fun-loving, positive and soft-hearted at the core.

Love my design aesthetic and know that it's a great fit for your brand.

Are ready to enter a creative partnership with a designer & brand strategist who you can trust to guide your brand.

Value timely, clear, and respectful communication.

Are hiring a designer for a reason, and eager to take design direction from a professional who knows her stuff and has your brand's best interest at heart.

Are ready and willing to fully invest your heart and mind into our project together, and understand that doing so is essential.

 

I...

Am honest and straightforward about what is best for your brand and audience.

Employ my tried & true one-concept approach to present a single, cohesive brand & website design that I strongly feel is the best fit for your business based on an amalgamation of your preferences and extensive discovery and identity research for your brand.

Am a responsive and thorough communicator, carefully explaining the thought behind my design decisions and educating my clients every step of the way.

Care just as much about your brand as you do, and as such require thoughtful, thorough feedback from you throughout the design process to ensure that our final designs are a total home run.  

Love streamlined processes, and guide you through a thorough, easy-to-follow design process that allows me to guarantee excellent work (provided you do your part!).

 

We...

Respect each other's time and communication styles, and will honor work/life boundaries and agree on preferred methods of communication from the get-go.

Partner together to create a brand aesthetic and story that is guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings of your ideal client or customer.

Will work together intimately throughout your design project, with timely and clear communication being the key to our success.

Know that this is serious business, but also know it's supposed to be fun. Grumpy attitudes aren't welcome here!

Both have a strong appreciation for custom, high-quality design; It's more than just graphics. It's visual storytelling.

 

 

But I'm Probably NOT The Right Designer for You If...

You have specific design instructions for me. I'm a creative designer with years of training in marketing, advertising and consumer psychology. My clients choose to work with me because they value my creative style and trust that my professional design decisions are made with their brand's best interest at heart!

You don't like the Squarespace platform. As you may have gathered already, I specialize in designing websites exclusively for Squarespace. I choose to work with this platform because it's beautiful, easy to use, and easy for my clients to learn!

You don't have the time to dedicate two weeks to your brand or website's development. I'm often asked how on earth a two-week timeline is doable, and the answer is always efficiency and communication. In order for the Two Weeks to Launch Experience to work, you'll need to commit to doing your pre-design homework and communicating with me promptly!

You aren't ready to loosen the reins and trust a designer with your brand. My clients value my professional opinion and creative style, and those who trust the process and respect my work have always seen the best results!
