What I Do
Your Brand's Design Is Its Soul
I create customized digital-marketing packages for clients to help them develop brand-name recognition. The four elements of your kit are:
Website Design and SEO
Everything I create in your digital-marketing package is unique to you and your business. Throughout the design process I’ll collaborate with you. I’ll explain what’s important and what’s not and also educate you along the way as I design your brand and kit. Your part in the process is to write the content for your brochure and website. (Don’t worry—I’ll wordsmith your content.) When the whole digital-marketing kit is ready, everything is sent to a professional proofreader. A final edit is then done by me. When the kit’s ready, you’ll receive digital files that include a logo, business card, and brochure. Your branded website will be live, too. It takes a few weeks to design the kit from start to finish, depending on the client’s responsiveness. To get started, let’s have a chat.
Things that Matter
You can’t build a brand until you have one. Brands are made from recognizable visual images and followed up by quality services or products. High-quality brands matter because they establish you in your market.
Digital-marketing cohesiveness is as vital as an ecosystem in nature. The design style, colors, fonts, and other creative elements must share common threads to be memorable to clients. Brand recognition often happens in minds subliminally, and that’s achieved through good cohesive design.
Search-engine optimization (SEO) is the means by which computers find you on the internet. It’s a complex process, but you can sit back and have confidence that your website will have SEO throughout the design. Over time, it’ll help search engines find you.
Why Use Me
After a 15-year professional career in digital marketing and sales in the technology industry, I intimately understand brand-name recognition. I keep up with technology trends, as they relate to effective digital marketing. Creativity never gets old, and it comes naturally to me. When I work with a new client, I seek to understand (or discover) their identity and then create a unique digital brand that suits them. All my web designs are on-trend and fresh, and they meet SEO technology standards. Besides being a digital-marketing designer, I’m also a writer and author. I have four published books. Wordsmithing text comes easily to me and will benefit your brochure and website. My goal is to not only meet your expectations but to exceed them. I’ll work hard to achieve that. Satisfied clients refer new clients, which is my bread and butter. I’m personable and will do all I can to make this a pleasant experience for you. It’s a personal experience when you work with me.
“Ell branded my business. I have a beautiful website, logo, business card, and pamphlet. I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on all of it. She also designed a letterhead, helped me to program a PayPal button with step-by-step instructions, she set up my business cards and pamphlet on Vistaprint so I just had to hit the buy button, and she also created an invoice for clients that have a similar look. Ell is also helping me market my business through Google ads. If you need a little or a lot of assistance, she is definitely the person to assist you. Lastly I can’t say enough about how great Ell is to work with. She works collaboratively with you throughout the entire process.”

"The website for my business was extremely simple before. I didn’t think anything was wrong with it, but then my friend told me it was really dated and uninteresting. That’s kind of a problem, since I want customers to go there and have an interest in my services. So I decided to embark on a journey to completely redesign my website and revamp my business. And since I don’t really have the skill set to create a great website, I decided to find someone who did. That someone was Ell. I loved the way her website looked, and I wanted something just as good. I didn’t have a lot of specifics to tell her—I just said what my business was, what kind of colors I’d like for my logo, and what kind of feel I wanted my website to have. And I’m truly elated with what she created for me. My logo is perfect for me and my business. It’s completely personalized and unique. And my website is totally fresh now! I love all the little details put into it and how my information is displayed. I really have no complaints at all. And Ell communicated with me through it all, just to make sure I was completely happy with the design. I’m excited to get back out there and have people discover the new me so I can really grow my business."

"As a new startup I’d attempted to brand my company myself. Technology isn’t my strong suit, my budget was limited, and I was struggling. Once Ell began to work with me, everything changed. She was very easy to talk to, listened well, and helped me understand what she was doing and why. She created a very unique, amazing logo that perfectly fits my company and philosophy. The logo was the foundation of my business card, and then, using that logo and the philosophy behind it, she created a very powerful brochure and website. She’d created my brand. I went from floundering to feeling very confident about where my business is going, and it happened in just a couple of weeks. I’m so grateful to Ell for her hard work, creative mind, and listening ear. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with branding and building their business."
