What I can do for you – and your business

I love nothing more than helping businesses grow their brands and look their best! I strive for perfection (and beauty) every time, always pushing to exceed expectations and delivering stunning work within my client’s deadlines.

After working in the advertising industry in Kansas City for 5 years, I took the opportunity to begin freelancing for clients all over the country. I’ve grown my experience in print design, website design + development, branding, marketing materials, and even photo retouching with clients big and small.

These days I focus my passion on smaller, start-up businesses, helping them transform their hustle into success. I offer several ways in which we can work together to make your designs come to life – and fit your needs best.

Hourly design services

Over the past several years, I’ve noticed an increase in small businesses who frequently need a graphic designer but don’t want the obligation to have on on staff. These clients will hire me on an hourly basis, reaching out to me for whatever design needs they have – small promotional pieces to share on social media, on-brand media kits to send to potential advertisers, custom product packaging, website edits, photo retouching, and more.

Reach out to me for projects as they come and I’ll fit you in at my soonest availability – first-come-first-serve – and bill monthly for work done at my hourly rate. Working hourly like this removes the wait time for more formal estimating and project kick-off, which allows for us to accomplish your projects quicker!

Need something in a pinch?

I can usually accommodate fast-turnaround projects with a rush fee of an added 15% to my hourly rate for projects due within 24 hours during the business week, or 48 hours during the weekend. Just let me know what you need and when you need it, and I’ll work with you to get it done!

Designer on retainer

I love maintaining long term relationships with my clients – providing consistent on-brand designs, helping them present their products / services in the most engaging way, and providing my experienced perspective on every visual aspect of their business. Having me on retainer is the closest thing to having a designer on staff, working with you as part of your team.

I offer retainer packages of 10, 20, or 30 design hours per month at a discounted hourly rate. With these retainer packages, not only do you get design hours at my lowest rate, you also have priority in my schedule. I block off the time for you each month, no matter how busy I get, so your hours are always reserved for you.

Each package includes a monthly 30-minute call to talk about your goals for the month and any projects coming up. The idea is to have regular check-ins so we can be on the same page so I can better understand your vision and design toward your goals. I can act more as your partner, less of a contracted freelancer, being able to brainstorm with you and make relevant suggestions to help grow your business. And since I’ll have a better grasp of the work and deadlines each month, rush fees are waived for retainer clients.

In order to focus and dedicate myself best to my clients, I have a limited amount of retainer slots each quarter.
