Graphic design services for small business; start-ups, nonprofits, boutiques, and artisans.

Guiding a startup or established business in the right creative direction was always one of my favorite things about my job. I have worked with so many wonderful people who have had a dream to start their own business (as an entrepreneur myself, I relate to the challenges and passion) and they gave me the opportunity to be a part of their venture. Forage and Flower, embraced, Simpson Construction, Utopitrade, Lightnetworks, Georgia Crafted, Amburn& Co Realtors are just a few of the most recent.

Here’s a new client example: You have been making your own natural beauty products for awhile, you have a business or product name, homemade labels, maybe even business cards you printed from your home printer… but now you are ready to move outside your inner circle of clientele. You look at what your other established small businesses are putting out there and say to yourself… “I really need a professional brand to start marketing to the bigger buyers”. CTA: Find an expert in the creative design world. You call on a graphic designer – let’s say vwahlacreative, for a phone consultation. You decide that you make a good pair, and you ask for a creative package proposal. Your design package could include components for your brand identity along with marketing collateral plus a landing page. Your proposal would also include a summary of our first meeting or phone call, suggested priority of creative components, phases of design and development and timelines and budget. Once approved–the next step–a creative brief and so on. We will communicate often, make sure we’re heading in the right direction and on the same page. We will build this brand together! Maybe even add in a launch event because we are so excited about the new brand!
