Studio Hours

While I would love to write 9 AM-5 PM, if you know me, you know it would be more like 5 PM to 3 AM most days.  So in the spirit of full transparency, let's just keep it real and say, BY APPOINTMENT & ACCORDING TO MY CALENDAR.

Maybe one day I'll be a cool kid with normal hours.  Until then, hit me up with the form below and let's get you on my calendar.  My custom brand design calendar tends to book out 2-5 months in advance.

Some A's for Your Q's

Bring on the questions.  Here are a few questions I get pretty regularly (in case you might have them too).  If you have a question that isn't listed or want more information about one that is, don't hesitate to head here to get in touch and ask away.

WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE IN BRAND STRATEGY & DESIGN?

I have worked in brand strategy and design in varying leadership capacities for over 20 years.  One nonprofit organization I started and built raised over 7 figures during my time there. 


WHAT DID YOU STUDY IN SCHOOL?  DO YOU HAVE AN ACADEMIC BACKGROUND?

I have my BA in Communications, & my MA in Organizational Leadership (with an emphasis on communications & creative business). I also have 2/3rds of an MBA.  

WHAT PLATFORMS DO YOU DESIGN ON?

For graphics, I design in Photoshop, Illustrator and other industry leading tools. For web, I design using SquareSpace and Showit.

I'M JUST STARTING OUT.  HOW FAR ALONG DO I NEED TO BE IN MY BUSINESS JOURNEY TO HIRE YOU?

That is such a great question.  In order to make the most of this investment, the primary thing you need is a fairly clear concept of what business you are in and what needs you are meeting.  If you aren't sure of these yet, you might be better suited for a Creative Strategy Session to start with.

WHY DO YOU REQUIRE HOMEWORK? CAN'T I JUST SHOW YOU WHAT I WANT & YOU COPY IT? 

Branding is about what makes you unique.  It is about standing out, not being an echo of someone else's song.  The homework is to help you engage with the right questions in order to create the most original, authentic, effective brand for your business.  I can't answer them for you because they need to be your answers. But I'll be here as your cheerleader and champion throughout the process.


HOW ARE PAYMENTS HANDLED?

Payments are distributed throughout your design journey.  I try to be as flexible as I can to make the process work for my clients.  I understand this is one of the largest investments you make in your business and I want to make it as accessible as possible.


DO YOU JUST DESIGN LOGOS BY THEMSELVES?

Actually, no. I don't.  And here's why: I believe to do so would do you a disservice.  A logo by itself will not help your business unless you have a few other key elements and understand how to use them. But my Dream-to-Done™ Brand Intensive will get you headed in the right direction!
