My small human turns 2 today, so please indulge my sensitive side while I tell you a little bit about the lessons I’ve learned from him that I can apply to my business as a freelancer.
If your organization lacks its own design department, you might be constantly scrambling to work with freelancers to get your projects tackled. The endless cycle of bidding work out to designers, making the decisions, signing contracts, getting new people up to speed, it can be exhausting and lead to disjointed work.
Even though images are digital files, they have measurements. These measurements, known as dimensions, are key to understanding what you can use an image for. Maybe you’re working with a designer and they just said “this image isn’t big enough, do you have anything bigger?” and you’re not sure what to do next.
When I partner with Kate on a project, I know that my expectations will be exceeded. She delivers creative and functional designs– on time and on budget. Her attention to detail and follow through are exceptional.
Working with you was AMAZING! You helped me cobble together an incoherent pile of ideas into a cohesive, gorgeous brand identity that works across all my platforms. The hardest part was deciding on a design, since they were all so gorgeous. No lie. That was the toughest thing.
You made things feel easy. You were able to work with my wants/needs even though I wasn’t able to provide a ton of direction. You also show great skills and design diversity in your work being able to show multiple different style options.
I think you do an excellent job, and I am continuously impressed with your creativity. Being able to rely on you for those ideas is priceless to me, really, and I’ve had a lot of experience with designers over the years!
I really liked that some times we had ideas that you thought would not work the way we wanted it to, so you would mock it up for us so we could see. I learned to trust your opinions!
Kate is by far the most detail orientated person I have ever worked with. Her creativity is second to none. In my experience, finding both of these qualities in the same person is rare.
Overall,we were very happy with the design details of our invitations, programs, and signage. We never imagined the design you printed and I love that you took our conversations and made it into something we both loved!
We were pleased with Kate’s flexibility in our timeline and additional requests throughout the project, as well as her collaboration with our printer. Overall, we were very satisfied with Kate’s professionalism and open communication, and look forward to working with her again.
Working with Kate is rewarding. She quickly absorbs the theme of what we are creating and always produces impressive results. Oftentimes, choosing between her options is our biggest challenge.
We’re now way more confident that we’re providing a professional and consistent experience for our students.
