A motto to live by.

Once you've done work that doesn't feel like work – when you're as excited by Mondays as you are about Fridays – you can't go back. I've done work like that and that's why I started this business.  

When the publishing and media industries hit hard times, when myself and so many of my friends and co-workers were losing their jobs, I made the decision to take back control and do what I love.

That's when I had to learn how to be a boss online.

 
 

Now I help other offline professionals get online cred and confidence. Not just because it's a necessity these days, it's about taking control of how you're seen.

 

So, what's in it for you? You're...

You're in good hands with an experienced designer who cares about your success.

You have control over how you're seen with a website you maintain yourself.

 

 

WHAT'S THE BEST PART?

This isn't my first rodeo. You can relax knowing I have your back. I have a zillion years of design experience and high standards. My dreamiest job was art directing editorial and custom content for large national magazines like Canadian Gardening, Photo Life, Canadian LivingElle Canada, and Style at Home. Telling visual stories in a way that made people connect to the brand.

Working With Me

I don't just value good looks. I'm not going to buy a gorgeous purse if I can never find anything in it (though, it's tempting). I take this practical approach to each project. Creating a good flow of information and making content easily digestible is just as important as the pretty stuff.

 
 

not the same old b.s.

My cup is always half full, I love happy endings, and I'll give it to you straight. But my best asset may be my sense of humour (and most useful, living with teenagers). And my fuzzy assistant, Peanut.

Are we a good fit?

Choosing the right design partner can feel like online dating. We don’t need to be BFFs, but we could be collaborating for weeks, months or even going steady. 

 
 

Chemistry

When you look through my portfolio work, does the look and feel of it speak to you? If we share a similar taste/style it feels like we can read each others minds.

commitment

Are you passionate about what you do and value quality design?
Getting clear, doing some research, and investing in your content are key for design that pays off.

 

 

Join me in the fight against ugliness.

My husband may save lives, but I save good people from ugly visual clutter. Some may call it my obsessive-compulsive-like-addiction, but whatever. 

They're just not design-savvy like us ;-)
