Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory.

DESIGN AND CONSULTATION

FOR SMALL BUSINESSES WHO NEED A HELPING HAND


You don’t know what you don’t know, which makes it hard to mitigate issues and costs. Helpful advice and an outlet for overflow work can make the world of difference when you’re running a small business.

Ask more. Learn more. Do more.

Yep. I can help with that.

CLIENTS

These are some of the clients I’ve been blessed to create designs and signage for over the years while working for myself, as well as for national print companies.

HOW I CAN HELP

PRINT

Brochures, fliers, posters, business cards, book covers, magnets, stickers, decals, billboards, POP, wayfinding-signage, infographics, VIS/Branding Guides, logos, etc all have their own unique parameters, strengths, and limitations.

I can help you or your designer better understand how to maximize your design and prep files correctly. 

I can help create art, prep art, and navigate the best output.

I can help you locate a great printer to complete your project.

DIGITAL

Designs for digital canvases such as social media, websites, slide presentations, Email Marketing, digital handbooks, Google, Bing, FB, IG, Twitter, & LI Ads, and more can be overwhelming in output sizes, resolution, and end results.

I can assist you in making sure it’s the right size, setting, and file format.

I can create designs ready for immediate use.

I can help with copywriting.

WEBSITES

Custom coded sites can be amazing tools, but they create problems if you don’t have a coder on staff. CMS (content management systems) such as WordPress, Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, Google Sites, MailChimp, etc can be the right balance of budget, in-house management, and aesthetics.

I can help you understand some differences, strengths, weaknesses, and uses.

I can help you build and maintain your site. 

APPAREL

My first job as a designer was screen printing. Since then, Direct-To-Garment (DTG) and dye-sublimation have exploded onto the scene and expanded apparel capabilities.

I can help you decide which solution is best for you and make sure your artwork is prepped accordingly.

I can create artwork ready for the type of printing you’re using.

ENVIRONMENTAL
(WALL) GRAPHICS

Wall graphics and dimensional displays look amazing and can transform spaces instantly, even with a smaller budget. Creating art and prepping them accordingly is essential to making sure they look good and exactly as you envisioned them.

I can help walk you through the steps needed and what to expect in large format printing, from site inspection to installation, and how to achieve your desired outcome. 

I can create artwork and work with your vendor to bring your vision to life.

LOGOS &
VIS/BRANDING GUIDES

Logo creation has changed rapidly over the last decade. So has the cost and even general thought process that goes into them.

I can help you understand some core tenants of logo creation so you can avoid common pitfalls and utilize best practices. 

Maybe you have a logo but need a vector version.

I can create a vector version, or help you understand how well it will translate into vector so you can decide how best to proceed.

Establishing a proper Visual Identity Standard (VIS)/Branding Guide is key in keeping your company on brand across any print or digital medium.

I can walk you through the process and/or create a VIS/Branding Guide, complete with vector version(s) of your logo and Pantone Colors, as well as typeface (& font) options.

ECOMMERCE

Having explored Shopify, Ecwid, Big Commerce, Woocommerce, and Square (Formerly Weebly), I know it can be confusing. Even knowing to ask, “What’s a PCI compliant server? Does Wayfare VS South Dakota apply to me?” and other questions may never cross your mind.

I can help you weigh pros, cons, budgets, and needs if you’re looking to set up an online store or work with drop shippers like Printful.

I SERVE GOD FIRST, NOT MAN.

You may consider that cliché or “nice”, but for me, it’s the foundation of my day. People let me down, disappoint, and give me a litany of reasons to not give my all for them. God never does. He deserves my best, and all that I do —  my talents, abilities, speech, and business — should bring honor to Him. (Matt 5:16) Additionally, if I am to do all things as if unto the Lord (Col 3:23), then regardless of how those around me, my employer, or the world at large are acting, I am to honor God with my decisions and effort. 

God also says I’ll give account to Him for my choices (Eccl 12:14, Matt 12:36, Rom 14:12). For me, that means I’ll do the right thing because it’s the right thing, even if it costs me. Putting God first in today’s culture can be difficult. The court of public opinion can swiftly wreak havoc on you, your family, and your business. And, increasingly, the scriptures are being hijacked through modern hermeneutics to support whatever popular agenda pleases the itching ears around us. (2 Tim 4:3). I do my best to stand on proper exegetical, objectively viewed, logic-driven scriptural understanding, even if means being counter-culture.

What does this mean in for you?

First, it means my input, thoughts, designs, and information are as clear, helpful, truthful, and as professional as I can make them. You get my best every single time.

Second, it means depending on your project or need, I may not be the right person to assist you. If, in my opinion in light of what I’ve just said, I cannot with a clear conscience assist you and stand before God knowing I voluntarily did so, I will have to pass on your project.

If you’re looking for content creation or support and information, and to work with someone who holds these values and beliefs, let’s talk.

PRICING IS BUSINESS DEPENDENT

I work with you so you can work with me. Three types of pricing are avaiable.

A company with just you is different than a company with 10 employees. They’re different than a company with 40 employees, who’s different than a company with 100, and so on. They often have different demands, resources, objectives, and budgets. I keep my pricing relative to your capabilities so you can remain in the black.

HOURLY

Pay as you go, for as long (or short) as you need. Simple questions, one-time projects, or sporadic needs can make this your most cost effective pricing option.
