ARE YOU READY TO HIRE A DESIGNER?

You are excited to start your own business but you want to do it right and set yourself up to make sales right away.

You are unhappy with your current branding or website. It doesn't really represent your business properly and you need professional help to get it done right.

Maybe you have a vision for the perfect brand to represent your business but can't translate it into the business world.

You have an idea or concept but don't have time to figure out the design tools on your own. You want it done right the first time. No wasting time or money.

  • Delivering a Logo or Brand Identity that sells is my mission.

    Graphic design for visual branding is key because a brand is responsible for speaking for your business and it must deliver the correct message. The brand must visually represent the given message accurately. Misaligned visual elements will have a negative effect on the target audience sending a feeling that your message is not believable or trustworthy. The brand connects the target audience with a business. The brand attracts your target audience so it’s fair to say it has a huge impact on any marketing campaigns as well which has a direct effect on profitability. Typography affects readability, logo affects target market impressions, colour can affect buying decisions. Finally, a brand is more than just a logo it’s a cohesive image set across all communication platforms both print and digital.

Why choose a boutique graphic designer!

The best part of my business is having the flexibility to be able to set my own hours so I can be available when my clients need me. This is not to say I don’t have to work long hours, it’s rather the opposite actually, but some times of the day are more effective for office work and others are more effective for designing. As such my office hours are 9am-2pm Monday to Friday. If you need to speak with me I am almost always on email and will happily respond promptly. This also means that if you need to communicate with me in the evening for convenience on your end I am able to make that work as well. You have 100% of my attention. You will not have to go through any gate-keepers you will always deal with me. I am more affordable because I do not have to charge agency prices. I have the same skills but not the same overhead. Time is money and relationships are key.

Don't take my word for it. Check out what my clients say!

“Working with Erin Kellie has been such a pleasure. Her attention to detail and creative abilities along with strong professional attitude made our experience positive. I like how Erin took our concept for a book and walked us through the process from beginning editing to a final professional looking printed book. She offers suggestions and opinions in a respectful and considerate manner where you don’t feel pressured to change how you think your project should look. I appreciated how Erin followed through in a timely manner and was readily available to answer questions. I would highly recommend working with Erin in any of your creative endeavors.”

Scott Davis
Architect

"The main purpose for any reference is to answer the question – would I work with Erin again?. Yes, because Erin has collaborated with me on several projects each one challenged her graphic design and technical skills with good results. I expect the best and receive it. I encourage you to work with Erin and see for yourself."
