I'm so glad you're here!

They say business isn’t personal, but in my case it is...in the best way possible.  My name’s Laurie Russell and this is the part where we get to know each other a bit better.  I’m a professional Graphic Designer from the Pacific Northwest.  I’ve worked with a variety of clients, from large companies, to small startups, to individuals and small businesses - in many industries - over the past 10 years.

I put together a fun video about my schooling and my journey to becoming a designer over on my YouTube channel and you can watch that here:

I love being able to help someone overcome their fear of failure or thinking that they’re not creative… I believe that everyone has something in them, some spark of creativity, that they can tap into.  You may just need a little help getting started - a blank paper or computer screen can be intimidating!

I have plenty of professionally designed templates to help you out.  You can use them as-is, tweak the colors and fonts for your brand, or use them as a jumping-off point for your own creative work...it’s up to you.

If you’ve ever felt like you have too much on your plate or “too many tabs open in your brain” to add one more thing… I get you!  Running a small business takes a lot of time and getting your branding and marketing together can sometimes turn into just one more thing on an ever-growing To-do list.

Especially if you don’t have a team, or it’s a small one, you may find yourself searching for a plan or system to help make your marketing easier.

It seems like other businesses put together beautiful, professional graphics that are coordinated across all of their social media platforms and you think…”well, SOMEDAY I’ll have time for that” or “they must have a full-time Graphic Designer to do all of that.”

Well...maybe not!  I started this business so that I could help people who didn’t have the time or expertise to create all of their own marketing from scratch. At this time, I’m not working one-on-one with clients, because I’m focusing on empowering business owners to create their own marketing material (in less time than they thought) and actually have fun doing it!

You know what they say, right?  Behind every great woman is…

 

...an adorable puppy!  But seriously, I could NOT get through my days without this little guy.  Cooper is a Cairn Terrier with energy for days and kisses to spare.  When he’s not in the front window keeping tabs on the neighborhood, he’s usually curled up on the couch in my office.

Meet Cooper - the cutest assistant ever!

Get to know a little bit more about me!

I’m born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and I still live here and love it!

Although… I’m nearly ALWAYS cold, so I adore the 2 months of “real” summer we get here in Western Washington.

I’m SUPER organized and I love finding and trying new hacks for our house (my husband is very understanding!)

I took dancing and singing lessons from a young age, and I’ve done a lot of community theatre...

...that’s actually where I met my husband!!
