As both a professional writer and graphic designer, I am uniquely qualified to conceptualize, write and design your marketing materials. I have been working with small- and mid-sized businesses for over 25 years, and I have a list of satisfied customers who are happy to refer my services. I am detail-oriented, deadline-oriented, and client-centric.
Abc Write/design has been creating our community's newsletters for the last 10+ years. They put out a high quality newsletter month after month for us. They have also done some special projects for us that a quick turn around was needed and they delivered! They make our job easy!
My client and I talk at length about their current needs. Together, we determine what they hope to achieve and what message they're trying to send with their marketing materials. After my initial creative process, I present the client with choices of layouts and copy from which they can visualize the direction we're heading and make any initial changes. I continue to provide updated drafts of the materials we're creating until we have produced exactly what they're looking for.
I have a dual degree in professional writing and graphic design from Carnegie-Mellon University and nearly 30 years of experience working with clients from coast to coast.
My clients typically like to know their costs upfront. Once I understand the scope of work, I present a proposal with the final costs (excluding expenses). For some projects with many unknowns, I work on an hourly basis at a rate of $125/hour.

Most graphic designers do not have writing and editing capabilities. If you hire someone who doesn't understand language as well as they create designs, you are missing a big part of what makes your marketing materials stand out.
