Designing Influence. Drawing Attention.

I create visual design and branding based on your vision and values so that you can achieve your marketing and organizational goals. My creative solutions have helped some clients to realize as much as a 500% increase in their business in just a few years. I approach the design process as a collaborative effort with you. My creative insights mesh with your specific understanding of your services and products.  I design to appeal to your customers and clients. Approaching brand design in this manner requires an investment of time and focus. There are no instant, off-the-rack solutions. My process results in a unique, stand-out and appealing brand that sets your business apart, draws attention to your message and increases your influence.

Working Together

Businesses and Organizations

I focus on full-scope projects with a 6-week minimum duration, and retainer contracts of one year or longer. The advantage to you is that it allows me to focus on just a few clients at a time, study your customer base and your market position, and get to know the vision and mission for your business. We’ll build a quality working relationship with mutual benefit.

Authors and Publishers

I can illustrate your book cover, and I can also design the cover. I can illustrate and design the entire book. And I can work with you to publish on Amazon.

 

Creative Services

VISUAL BRANDING

Development of visual designs and line extensions for print and digital use, plus strategy and implementation.

I develop for you a complete package of graphics and collateral pieces to use online and in print, for all your promotional needs.

I offer three visual branding packages. Please scroll down to learn more.

LOGO and IDENTITY DESIGN

Creation of a unique logo or trademark, stand-alone or with applications to communications formats, graphic standards manuals, research and consultation. Your logo is the foundation of your brand strategy; everything else emanates from it, and it’s applied to everything from your business cards to social media.

WEBSITE and DIGITAL DESIGN

I design custom websites built on the WordPress framework that are visitor-friendly, pretty to look at, and consistent with your branding. Ongoing maintenance is available, or I’ll train you to manage your site to keep your costs low.
