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.
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.
I wanted to freshen up how my association presented my meeting, to show how progressive and modern it was (as well as how forward-looking my association was). Working with Kate, she created dynamic annual meeting branding, with a program booklet that multiple people came up and complimented me on during the meeting. Kate’s creativity and vision helped place my Board and staff in the best possible light, and had attendees of our meeting walk away with something that conveyed a sense of ‘the best is yet to come!’
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.
You are very creative and provide multiple options which I find very helpful. I really appreciate your attention to detail and trust that you know what you’re doing.
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.
Having Kate there to guide us through the beginning and end of our project not only made our lives easier but provided us with exactly what we were looking for on of the biggest days of our lives – we cannot thank her enough for that!
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.
Kate’s assistance with creating professionally designed materials has enabled us to expand our reach and ability to “touch” clients in more ways that traditional means, such as by phone and email. In our opinion, the value of this exposure would be greatly diminished if not for the well thought out look and feel of our documents.
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!
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.
