from a dream to reality...
I am a graphic designer and pastor in Randleman, NC, where I live with my husband, our 2 Greyhounds and our male Blue & Gold Macaw. I have over 20 years experience in graphic design and ministry combined. I have always had a passion for colors, fonts and creativity and I have always loved coloring and designing my own birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas cards but I never thought about making a business out of it.
In 2001 me and my family started a home church at Badin Lake, NC. During that time I felt called to get a BA in Pastoral Ministries, so in 2008 I pursued that degree. I then decided to get a Masters in the same field, however, my passion changed in the first semester, so I took some time off to rethink and felt led to follow my design passion. After getting my masters in graphic design I realized that I did not know the first thing about running my own business, so I pursued a BA in Strategic Management.
I am very passionate about the work I do and I love bringing others visions to life.
What makes Seventy7 Graphic Design different?
I have worked directly with a range of clients, from doctors to authors and from small business owners to ministries, with all of them still being loyal customers.
In addition, 16 years of doing design work for a ministry has provided me with extensive print knowledge with clientele ranging from non-profit to book authors to IT specialist.
Beyond the Design
As a business design professional, I start by getting to know your business, brainstorming with you to take your project to the next level. We will work together to develop your target audience and create elements to reach them. As well as find cost-effective advertising ways that will best fit your specific needs.
Designing starts with listening to the client and hearing what they are communicating. This is the key to the design, no matter what the work. Not only listening, but asking the right questions makes for a great design and a great relationship with the client.
I come from a family that has owned different types of businesses through the years and now me and my husband own our own businesses. I understand that everyone's budgets are different and the need to find the most cost effective and efficient way to market your business. I also realize that the digital marketplace can be scary and difficult and mistakes are costly in many ways.
