You know the saying "It takes an village"? The same rings true for design.

Here are a few ways to work with me:

ART DIRECTOR ON DEMAND

Have a design project you're working on but need professional, and experienced, feedback and critique, as well as a plan for revisions, through to execution? I'm here for ya. That logo design concept that you need to present to your client but just can't nail what feels "off"? I totally get it.

 

Maybe you're a self-taught designer or still learning and you're not feeling as confident in your skills as you'd like. Or maybe you just need someone to point you in the right direction. Maybe you're experienced as hell but something like concept development, logo design, and typography aren't your strong suit.

 

Whatever the skill may be, I'd love to be your Art Director on demand and help you get from "Meh" to "Heck yes!", from "Can I do this?" to "I can totally do this!". Whatever it may be, I'm here to help!

Specialties:

Branding, Typography & Typesetting, Logo Design, Concept Development, Color, Website Design, Sales Pages, and Layout.

Software:

Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Squarespace. 

Details:

1-hr minimum, at $100/hr.

1:1 squarespace training for designers

Are you a Wordpress or Showit designer and have been wanting to learn the Squarespace platform so that you can start offering Squarespace website design packages in your biz?

 

I'll give you 1:1 training within 3-4 sessions together where we will go over the entire Squarespace Platform, plus we will take a home page comp that you've designed and recreate it in Squarespace so you can see exactly how the platform may differ from what you're used to, and how to implement custom CSS to achieve the design accuracy.

 

You will be able to make special functionality requests for things you want to learn, custom CSS included, and will be on the right foot for being able to create your own Squarespace website design offerings for your clients.

 

I also provide a lot of resources, shortcuts, and go over process and workflow for when you're working with clients. All of our live training sessions are recorded so you can always refer back to them. 

Who is this perfect for? 

Designers who aren't familiar with designing within the Squarespace platform, but would love to learn it so you can start offering Squarespace website design packages for your clients. You're familiar with web design, and maybe you've even dabbled with a Squarespace trail before (or not!). This is best for designers who have some knowledge of CSS currently, even if minimal. 

Details:

3-4 sessions, starting at $850

 

More details coming soon! Happy to send along beta student references.

Why work with me? 

I've got 6 years of design experience, including several years at design agencies in positions like Senior Designer and Creative Design Lead where I've led a team as well as mentored design interns and junior designers in everything from logo design, concept development, website design, brand strategy, and layout design, among other things.

 

I also have owned my own design business for three years and work with clients day in and day out. I  have a professional design degree from an accredited design college where I graduated with honors, so you know I've got a good foundation to my design chops. I believe in continual learning, and spend a lot of my time honing my design skills and learning as much as possible so that I can mentor from a place of knowledge and experience. Most important, I'm honest, nurturing, patient, and encouraging. 

 

I'd love to hear from you!
