Join The Team!


Part Time Graphic Design Associate

Just a year ago when I took the leap to start my own business and work one-on-one with a clientele of entrepreneurs, I had no idea how much growth and opportunity could take place over the next few months. Just this year, I’ve been honored to help over 30 businesses start, grow, and elevate their design and products. It’s been so gratifying to see how having that design partnership can give biz owners more confidence to share their best talents, ideas, and solutions to people who truly need them.

One of my greatest wishes for 2019 is to make the process of finding a trustworthy and thoughtful designer EASIER. Every business owner should feel empowered to do more of what they do best, with a great design team behind them making their ideas come to life.

The best ideas come from collaboration and team work (and okay, the actual capacity to take on more projects and help more people!). That’s why I’m so excited to announce that I’m hiring a part time design associate!

This person would come alongside me to serve my existing and new retainer clients with smart graphics and well-designed products. Projects would run the gamut, from simple social media graphics to digital PDF downloads to printed collateral. Like me, the person best fit for this position values creating fun and meaningful experiences for people, testing new ideas, and continually improving.

The position is virtual and would require 5 hours/week with the hopes of increasing hours in the future.
