“Um, I have a question.”
Honestly, I’d be worried if you didn’t. If you can’t find what you’re looking for below, send me a message! I’d love to chat.
Q. Are you accepting new clients?
I am currently accepting new clients 2 weeks out. So if we chat today, it’ll be a couple weeks to get the paperwork completely sorted, on average. Small projects like a business card or single landing page can usually be squeezed
Websites on Squarespace and WordPress usually take a bit more time to get the paperwork sorted.
Q. What is it you do in a nutshell?
I’m a graphic/web designer, but I focus on how design is presented to users (read: your ideal customers) as a part of the sales process. I balance research, user experience, and strategy with slick-as-hell graphic design.
We all want to appear as an industry expert to our new and future clients, and that is where my zone of genius comes in.
I help biz owners identify their target audience’s pain points and craft a buyer’s journey between ‘stranger on the internet’ and ‘raving fan’. And I work 1-on-1 with those business owners to implement this know-how on a monthly basis, one project at a time.
Which is less overwhelming for everyone.
If you’re looking for a single project like a logo, marketing collateral or a website, you’ll be working with my partner and I both via Ballantyne Studio (the freelance studio I run with my husband) – there you’ll get access to my passion for what makes your audience tick and my partner’s nearly 2 decades of design experience.
As always, there are no cookie-cutter solutions here, so if you’re not sure where to start or if we would be a good fit—drop me a line—I’ll let you know what I can do for you, or point you in the right direction.
Q. Can we go for a coffee and chat?
Currently, the only ‘coffee and chats’ I’m taking on are for blog collaborations, and all of them are on Zoom.
I offer consulting rates for business owners or people who are just getting started with their business. These consulting hours involve time focused on intense strategy planning and include a follow-up email with all my notes.
Q. Are you open to collaboration on posts/podcasts/etc?
I’m currently on pause for any video, podcasts, things I need to put on pants for.
The pandemic has been rough for everyone, and since the majority of my clients are monthly retainers, I’m saving up all my best energy for them. That means I’ve pulled back from most public speaking opportunities, podcasts and more. This is how I’ve been protecting my energy so that the people who’ve been working with me for a long time now can continue to enjoy my high level of energy and enthusiasm.
That said, send me an email if you’re working on something cool. I’m still doing some guest posts and participating on panels, and I’m usually up for working on a project for a good cause.
Q. What are your fees?
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.
If your project requires the addition of a copywriter, photographer or otherwise, you’ll still receive one quote with all services you’d like on your project listed—so you can see exactly how the cost of your project breaks down before making your decision on which package to choose.
A 2022 amendment: While I function in some of the same capacities as a ‘Virtual Assistant’, I am a professionally trained Graphic and Web Designer with experience working on a plethora of platforms, trained in content strategy with a mind for customer journeys and spotting opportunities. On top of that, I LOVE writing for my clients, and can edit your writing into sales copy that slaps. If you value this set of skills at less than $65 per hour, I might not be a great fit for you.
