What's the best part about being a designer?

-

Research

-

Getting to know your brand  and your customers and what they are looking for using case studies, interviews, surveys, face to face conversations, while investigating competing brands in order to improve your own.

-

Organization

-

Companies have a tendency to accumulate information and material over the years. A fabulous part about being a designer is organizing that information and bringing that material into 2021, clean and organized and easier to comprehend, using the research done.

-

-

Teamwork

-

Working with you and your ideas, goals and dreams to continue growth and inspire passion for the work you do and how you do it. Not only for you, but for your teammates and clients.

-

Development

-

It’s not only about our ideas, it’s about what the client wants. By combining all the material, we together discover the best solutions the most interesting way to present the concepts.

A designer’s job is to make life a tiny bit better, for all of us.

I mix and use my design experience and my customer service knowledge by finding the best solutions for the client. This includes graphic and content design, branding and working with social media on a daily basis. I am also in regular contact with budgeting and invoicing, pricing, PR and marketing.

What makes me most enthusiastic is being able to help update and improve small business material and help freelancers to realize their ideas and dreams. My long-term experience in the service industry is where I found my love for customer service- I truly enjoy participating in making people happier and their lives easier, through good design.
