Since 2009, I have been inspired to collaborate with clients wishing to promote their ideas more effectively. My goal is to provide clean, organized branding, editing, and maintenance in person or remotely.

 

Includes:

  • Free 1/hr consultation to discuss brand/logo development

  • $1,000 for web design layout; $30/hr after for updates/maintenance

  • Client access as administrator on Wix

Other Options:

  • Logo

  • Business Card

  • Posters/Fliers

  • Packaging

Inspired by organization projects I've successfully managed in the past, I am furthering my education at New York Institute of Art & Design with a focus in Interior Design. The class covers design trends and history, furniture styles and fabrics, and color theory and lighting.  Through a series of mentored projects, I am developing skills to make functional living and working spaces. My study will lay a foundation to better work with clients, from pricing and contracts to purchasing and scheduling.

 

By the end of the course, I plan to use AutoCAD (Computer-Aided Design software), which will assist in drafting and editing precise 2D drawings and 3D models of home interiors.

5 LESSONS LEARNED THROUGH PAST PROJECTS:

1) Things always take longer than you think they do.  A three day project can easily turn into five.  Or seven.

2) Put things back where you find them!  Making categorical piles helps minimize the junk. Have a library of books, a trunk to store games, a filing cabinet, or containers for crafty stuff.

3) The minimizing process can be done together!  Going through these piles and making selections of what to get rid of, find new homes for and being clear about current projects not only helps you FIND things, but be organized when you return to objects for use.

4) Honestly taking the time to THINK about your thought process when you want to put something down can help immensely in keeping your daily life organized.  Start with one small square and move from there.

5) Consistency is key!  In order for the foundation to set, value your belongings and don't bring home what you don't value.  Keep current projects in their spots so as not to misplace anything important.  I am avaialble for followup visits to support you with your organizational and lifestyle goals!
