My mission to you
AS YOUR STRATEGIC PARTNER
My mission is to provide quality graphic design and digital marketing solutions at affordable prices, designed to tell and showcase your brand's story. I treat every project with integrity and as a unique opportunity to help my clients nurture and expand their business potential through creative vision and insight.
Hey, I'm Steph!
Hi there! My name is Stephanie (but you can call me Steph) and I am a freelance graphic designer. From a very early age, design has been my passion - I lived it, I breathed it, and I ate and drank it too. I have been a creative soul in nearly all aspects of my life from the moment I can remember, whether it be designing and executing my 7th birthday party invitation or developing a new brand identity for a corporate client - it's in my blood.
I spent 5 years at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia (where I was born & raised) studying a Bachelor of Creative Industries majoring in Graphic Design with a minor in Advertising. I didn't think that was enough, however, so I decided to enroll in a double degree (because you know - who needs a life?) with a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Marketing - which is what lead me to move across to the other side of the world. In 2016, I studied a winter semester exchange at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, and since then, North America has been home!
I have been running my freelance graphic design business since 2007 when I was a young, doe-eyed teen with a passion for creating things and living in a world of colour, art, a high-speed internet connection, and the non-existence of comic sans. I still am that girl today, however, I do have a little more tolerance for comic sans (but if you like "Papyrus" or "Chiller" I don't think we can be friends sorry)
As well as graphic design, I also have 5+ years of experience in the events and marketing industry where I was an Event Coordinator and Social Media Marketing Manager for over 25 not-for-profit organizations in Perth, Western Australia.
I specialize in branding, web design, social media, SEO, and print & digital publishing. I am an Instagram Strategist, Adobe Specialist, and a Certified WIX Partner. A huge aspect of my design regime is focusing on typography, minimalism, and intricate composition. In 2020, I pivoted my niche to specialization in the beauty and aesthetics industry, however, no industry is off limits for me! I love to design and whenever I get the opportunity to, I take it. I am also the creator & co-host of the podcast, The Empower Hour with Dufferin Media which is available on all major podcast platforms.
My design philosophy is to create with passion, create with purpose, and tell a brand's story through the use of design. When I am not buried behind my laptop, I am usually traveling, watching Gossip Girl for the 100th time, eating sushi or discovering my new favourite gin.
Design is on my mind 24/7 - so if you're interested in working together, brainstorming ideas or just want to say hello - drop me a line!
