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.
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.
For us it was difficult to translate our thoughts into a marketing message and Kate was invaluable in this process. She listened carefully to what we wanted to project and quickly turned it into reality.
Kate is very responsive, creative and focused on meeting our deadlines. I do not have the capability to design my documents in-house, so I did not hesitate to outsource this work.
We loved Kate’s enthusiasm – its always fun to work with someone who enjoys what they do, which makes you excited for the process too.
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.
When following up with clients, they often mention receiving our mailers and other marketing materials. We feel it projects the type of image that is consistent with our brand, which was created by Kate.
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 more than a graphic designer. She is a true marketing partner. She provides big-picture analysis, ideas and strategies to help strengthen any design piece. At the same time, she’s detail-oriented enough to create beautiful work and ensure every “i” is dotted and “t” is crossed. I’d recommend Kate to anyone looking for a design consultant.
People love my branding and my business cards, and they like to contact me because they associate getting in touch with the brand we created.
We’re now way more confident that we’re providing a professional and consistent experience for our students.
