My approach to branding and design is to understand the mission, values, and heart of a business or project, while diving deep to understand the needs of your audience. With that foundation, the design that emerges is a thoughtful, intentional, seamless visual narrative that allows you to represent your business with confidence.
I create the following for passionate small business owners and talented artists in the music industry.
Your brand identity is the face of your business and helps tell your story. I want to help you create a visual brand that genuinely reflects what you do, connects with your dream clients, and serves your purpose.
Your visuals (website, collateral advertising, etc) is the virtual face of your business, and I will help it speak to your audience and achieve the goals you have — not to mention make it look and work spectacularly. We’ll do a full evaluation, planning, and build something uniquely yours.
A collection of my best work.

I love to share valuable insight for designers, creative entrepreneurs alike, and/or curious minds through my writing and perspective.
“A logo isn’t a brand unless it’s on a cow.” This is a great quote, and it’s very true. In creative briefs with clients, I often hear people reference Apple’s brand identity and how much they love it. However, they are almost never referring to the actual Apple logo. Instead, they’re referring to everything else that makes the Apple brand great, the open and clean design of their retail stores and website, the way their product packaging feels when you open it, the user experience of their user-interface, the photography, the type, the commercials, etc.
For freelance designers — or any creative service business owners — one of the most challenging aspects of business is pricing. We have uncertainty about what price our skills and experience should command. It’s difficult to compare how our prices stack up to others in the industry (because nobody likes talking about their prices). And even if we have all that sorted out, there’s no consensus on what pricing method is easiest to apply and fairest to use.
