Designer + Writer For All Things Creative

Hi there! Read on for a brief summary of my services, followed by a more detailed description about my work and the advantages of hiring me. Summary Specializing in both graphic design and copywriting, I save my clients time and money by providing a convenient single stop for comprehensive content solutions. Whether you require a corporate brochure or a bold event poster, I develop targeted materials that expertly integrate graphic and written components to create maximum impact—all while providing friendly, prompt, and fairly priced service! ____________________________________________ Graphic Design I apply my knowledge of color theory, content spacing, and the psychology of typography to develop graphic pieces in which all details are cohesive and consistent with your brand and purposes. I am proficient with Adobe Creative Cloud applications (including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign) and web-based tools like Canva and Wix. Typical graphic design services include: brochures, marketing postcards, branding, email templates, invitations, infographics, business cards, annual reports, print & web ads, and social media graphics. Copywriting I specialize in sales letters and other forms of marketing copy because I am quick to identify a persuasive angle, and I am skilled at presenting problems and solutions in a way that strongly engages the target audience. My main copywriting services include: sales letters, emails, brochure content, advertising word play, service/product descriptions, and cover letters. ____________________________________________ Why Work With Me? There are a lot of graphic designers and there are a lot of copywriters—but there are not a lot of people who can provide expert service in both categories! Below are 2 reasons why my hybrid expertise will simplify your hunt for creative content and increase your satisfaction with the entire experience. 1. A More Efficient & Stress-Free Process I will handle all of your copy and design needs, which means your project development will be streamlined when you work with me. Whether you need a single piece of copy, a template design, or you require both copy and design services, you can come directly to me instead of spending valuable time and energy searching for and communicating with multiple providers. 2. Maximally Cohesive Material My dual expertise means I can effectively integrate copy and graphics so that both elements fully complement and enhance each other. It is always more difficult to achieve a polished and cohesive final product when multiple providers need to to reconcile their creative opinions and levels of expertise. ____________________________________________ Interested? Check out samples of my work in my portfolio (design at the top, writing at the bottom), read about my current long-term collaborations in my experiences section, and review the feedback left by my employers. I appreciate your interest and I am ready to get started when you are!

Promotional Flyer
Assignment: Develop an attractive and upscale postcard that promotes real estate services for Westside Realty of California. In addition to creating the design, I was also hired to write the content. Solution: I brainstormed with my client to pinpoint the professional qualities that best distinguished her company from her competitors. Then I wrote the copy in a tone that is friendly and approachable, but also persuasive. The design is elegant, understated and neat. All of these qualities help this postcard stand out from typical real estate materials which tend to look cheesy and outdated. This postcard has converted many sellers and buyers into profitable customers for my client.  To view the copy more clearly, please return to my portfolio and select the document entitled: Real Estate Postcard (Text).

Experience

Graphic Designer and Copywriter

Gym Source
Apr 2015 - Present
Gym Source, the world's largest gym equipment distributor, initially hired me to produce Instagram images. However, after seeing my portfolio, Gym Source's Digital Marketing Director hired me to develop sales letters and also hired me to work on new projects that combined my copy and design skills. Some of my recent projects have included creating their e-newsletter template, designing sales sheets, designing and writing the brochure for their referral program, and redesigning business cards.

Content Writer

Girlterest (Website)
Feb 2015 - Present
I was hired by the owner of a website called Girlterest to write SEO friendly articles that appeal to the website's female audience. I write articles on a variety of topics that are assigned to me and I also submit articles about topics of my choice. Each article is written in a voice that appeals to Girlterest's target readership (females aged between late teens and mid 20's) and I incorporate key words in order to draw more traffic to the website.

Lead Graphic Artist

The Good Ones
Jan 2015 - Present
The Good Ones is a membership-based startup company in Boston, MA which provides a variety of expertly organized opportunities for people to connect. The VP of Project Development saw some of my design work and referred me to the company owners who were looking to fill their Lead Graphic Artist position. After my trial period, I was asked to fill the position and I have been creating graphic materials like posters and invitations for each of their events ever since.
