Right now, there may be a little voice in the back of your head wondering if you've made the right call.
Investing in your business (and in yourself) is scary! Did you hire the right designer? Is this really going to benefit your business?
The answer? Yes.
Good design will convert more website visitors into subscribers and customers.
Good design will help you bring in more of your ideal customers.
Good design will take your goals for your business from dream to reality.
Caitlin’s always kind demeanor, reliability, and trustworthiness made working with her an absolute pleasure. She readily recognized needs and gaps and filled them before ever needing to be told to and she was always willing to volunteer herself and put in the extra hours to deliver on those promises. I would recommend Caitlin to anyone that is looking for her skillset."
— Blake Gaiser, Director of Product & Marketing, Westone Laboratories
Caitlin is the most consistent, professional, and design-oriented individual I’ve worked with for brand, web, logo, anything design related. She always covers my blind spots, she is always on time, and she wants to earn your business by doing amazing work instead of selling you some jazzy BS that you don’t need or want like many designers."
— Christopher Sweat, Founder of StemFlow Consulting
I love Ember & Co!
Caitlin is the first person I think of whenever I have any design needs. She is incredibly talented and can take your ideas and truly run with them. She meets deadlines like no one else and always delivers an excellent product. She never ceases to impress."
— Kirsten Privett, Communications Manager at The Exodus Road
How we will be managing our work together
We have two primary tools that we use to manage design projects:
- Your Client Portal: For access to all invoices, contracts, questionnaires, sub-contracts, proposals, etc (the biz docs)
- Email: You will get emails about upcoming due dates, proofs ready for your review, invoices, etc. Basically, everything that will be available in your client portal will also be emailed to you directly.
- Optional: If your project is very complex or involves multiple stakeholders, we may leverage a project management tool (ClickUp). I'll let you know if so.
I've filmed a walkthrough of your client portal and ClickUp project below. Feel free to watch at your leisure. It'll show you how to access both, and what to do once you're in there 😉 Both services are 100% free for you and super easy to use.
If you have any questions at all, you are always welcome to email me directly at email@example.com.
A few friendly reminders:
