Crystal works one-on-one with small business owners to create kick-ass digital marketing plans – and has the design chops to help execute them.
Hi. I’m Crystal. (aka Your new best friend.)
I am a graphic designer & digital marketer based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I started in Graphic Design, graduating with the Highest Recognition Award from NSCC Waterfront Campus Graphic Design Program. Years later, when I started working on the Marketing team for a local FinTech company, I fell in love with everything to do with Digital Marketing. I transitioned from a Graphic Designer to a Design Lead – working one-on-one with our Marketing Manager to create and execute strategies online and in print that promoted products as they came out.
These days, I function as a one-stop-shop for Solopreneurs who are looking to take their digital presence to the next level. Whether you need someone to build your content strategy or just the visual graphics to make your brand pop – I’m your girl.
When I’m not in the office, you can usually find me in Halifax’s beautiful Central Library or walking dogs at the SPCA. (Oh, we haven’t even covered my obsession with getting a dog – well don’t you worry, we will definitely touch on that at some point soon.)
You found your way to my site because…
You're looking for a Graphic Designer
You're looking for help with your digital marketing.
You're looking for help with what to post online and when.
All of the above and a little bit more.
- Q. What the heck are you?
- Q. What are your fees?
- Q. Are you accepting new clients?
- Q. Can we go for a coffee and chat?
I am a design unicorn! The oh-so-technical term for someone who has taken the time to master 3 skills. In my case: collateral design, Content Strategy and WordPress using the Divi Theme.
You may be thinking ‘But Crystal, doesn’t something have to suffer to be good at each of those things?’ and the answer is yes – I do not offer Branding design. Luckily for you (and me), my partner Diamondhead Creative is a branding specialist and does all the branding for my clients.
There is no cookie cutter solution to design & marketing, and no cookie cutter prices to go with it. I have a standard set of fees that we can discuss during your discovery call that depends on what services you are looking to have completed and we will create a custom package for your needs based on what add-ons you would like to include.
Most packages are paid over a 3 month period, as the work is completed, to make it easier to get your business to the next level without detrimentally affecting your company’s cash flow.
I am currently accepting new clients for October 2017. The intake process to onboard me into your business usually takes around 2 weeks, so a booking in October means we’ll be in communication about your project by September 15th.
If you need your project in a hurry and can’t wait until October, send me a message and we’ll see if I can fit you in or recommend someone in my top list to take on your project instead.
For my own sanity, I have put a hold on ‘coffee and chat’ sessions until Eggnog Spice lattes from Starbucks are available to tempt me from my work space.
However, I attend several local networking events each month and would love to catch up. You can always find me at the Halifax WordPress Meetup that I help run with Alison Knott of Eraserheader Design, so join our FB to get the details and come hang out with me and a bunch of other creative tech people in the city.
