Coffee Table

marketing

Are you a new business wanting to make an impression online?  Or an existing business that is yet to dabble in online marketing?  The necessary tools for success are at your disposal but often the time required to invest into marketing your business is not.  As a passionate Adelaide digital marketer I take my clients success online very personally and will not only undertake work for you but guide you to be efficient and effective on your own.

websites

The basis of all good online marketing is a base to call home, i.e. a website.  This is your online 'shop front'.  It is where potential customers or clients will come to source critical decision making information.  Unlike Social Media, websites are 'static' and ensure the information being sought by your customers and clients is easily accessible.  Your site visitor experience revolves around finding the information they are looking for quickly, with as few clicks as possible, in a sleek and modern design that represents and reflects your brand.

As an South Australian based website designer, my clients are provided all this and an easy to self-manage website to allow them to take over its management once the design phase is complete.

Providing a clean look and feel e-commerce site for this new business was easy with a library of striking imagery and content at my disposal.  With regular communication and input from the client this easy to navigate shop based site was not only fun to create but provides the exact platform the client was looking for to refer customers to.

club safe

A purpose built membership driven site that provides secure access to restricted pages and documents.  This site also required an online sign up option, an automated email response process and approval steps for new members.  I worked closely with Club Safe to ensure the correct tone of voice was used throughout the site, along with extensive staff training for self maintenance of the site moving forward.

don't become that man

An incredible opportunity to be involved in this meaningful Federally Funded project.  From brand, graphic and logo design to the conception and creation of this site, this is one of my proudest achievements to date.  Specifically for the website, this sites main purpose was to offer online counselling.  I integrated an effective chat bot solution, along with identifying and incorporating the emotive and engaging images used throughout the site.  This site has now had extensive exposure across the media in response to the wonderful work the project undertakes.

When I first approached this project there were 2 things I knew I needed to do: achieve some spectacular drone footage to capture the scope of the Club and it's surrounding facilities and to capture the wonderful venue and food/beverage options on offer through professional photography.  This site provides exactly what the Club needs and is responsible for the exponential growth of their mailing list - now used for a monthly EDM (electronic newsletter) which I also design and curate, along with social media support when required.

k marie events

K Marie Events had just undergone a beautiful logo redesign and they needed a beautiful website to match.  Designing this website was made so much easier with a strong brand guideline and some incredibly stunning images of previous events.  I was able to create copy for the site that supported the areas of business they wished to focus on.

Diane O'Brien is a local Adelaide artist who wished to start selling her pieces online and was unsure where to begin.  I provided a cost effective e-commerce solution accompanied with an attractive design utilising her incredible paintings.  The prime purpose of the site was to represent, show off and sell Diane's art and that was where the focus lies in the finished product.

fleurieu plumbing & gas

When I first discussed a new website for Fleurieu Plumbing & Gas, they had been hosting a website 'under construction' for years (and years). 

Sound familiar?? 

I was able to create a modern, intuitive and user friendly site, whilst also writing the entire copy (text).  I met with the client to understand all facets of the business and formed an efficient site structure that both flowed and displayed their services seamlessly.

The number of leads generated by this site is testament to the way it flows and presents.

pause inhouse wellbeing

Pause Inhouse Wellbeing is the new brainchild of successful entrepreneur Candice Hooper, providing self care services to holiday homes and accommodation.  Initially servicing holiday destinations in South Australia, the scope and business plan moving forward is to provide services across the country.  This website serves both the client (owners and operators of holiday accommodation) and the service users.

glenelg community club

A council funded project provided the much needed financial support for the Glenelg Community Club to build and develop their very own website.  

With no existing branding or logo design to build from I worked closely with the Club's Committee to capture the essence of the Club and it's location in a branding guide which flowed smoothly into the development of the new website.

It was crucial this website was functionally easy to navigate, taking into consideration the demographic of their Members and Visitors

 

graphic design

Graphic Design - such a broad term.  From creating the perfect branding and logo to a professional document or presentation, graphic design can provide the professional edge a lot of small businesses are searching for.  

But if you are starting at the beginning, lets talk logos.  Logos and branding.  What's the difference?  Your logo is the image that portrays your brand; your brand is the colours, logos, imagery, tone of voice, catch phrases, calls to action and general look and feel of who you are and what you do.

Not sure where to start?  That's my job.  I can work with you to create that perfect brand and image that represents all that your business is and aspires to be.  Whether you already have an idea in your head or you would like me to provide a handful of design options to choose from, I will help build that perfect branding package to use across all areas of your business (i.e. website, social media, business cards, letterhead, email signatures)

don't become that man

Copy of Club Marion NYE 2020.png

Don't Become That Man was a brand new federally funded initiative of Community Transitions.  I was recruited initially for branding and logo design and have since created the projects brand new website and a number of other collateral pieces.

When creating the brand I had to take into consideration the project's demographic and the talking points around domestic violence.  From the colouring (a non-violent but eye catching orange), to the font (a scrawly graffiti like script) to the male image (representing the man conflicted with his controlling/violent behaviours).

breathe through pilates

A fledgling business in a very populated market meant that creating a brand for Breathe Through Pilates had to make a statement.  I worked closely with the client on finding the right mix of colour, and movement to fulfill their brand identity.

The final product included a suite of usable graphics, a branding board including specifics around colours and font types and of course the imagery she will use throughout her future business endeavours.

To create from just an idea is so inspiring and I love the freedom it provides myself and client.

The Barossa Patissier was an existing business that had not yet found it's identity.  Through targeted questions and analysing of the clients vision for their business we came to this elegant, modern and easily identifiable design which will support use across their collateral including signage at their market stall and new website.

document design

A good document design can be the difference between winning a client or contract and not.  Present your proposals and documents beautifully and they will not only make a fantastic professional first impression but they will be remembered.  Each document design process will include;

  • One on one consultation and development discussions either in person or over the phone/email

  • Up to 3 document design edits

  • Final version of document in PDF format (including print ready crop markings)

  • UP to 6 months of free edits per document from date of completion

logos and branding

I provide businesses with a full scope logo and branding package that includes;

  • One on one consultation and development discussions either in person or over the phone/email

  • Up to 3 logo design samples to determine direction

  • Final design of 2 logos (portrait and landscape)

  • Brand Guidelines for logo including font guide & colour palettes 

  • Home page mock up of website for conceptualising (full site available at additional cost)

digital or print documents

Whether it is creating an engaging member or customer electronic newsletter or a professional proposal design, I work with clients to embrace the message and create a design that is right for their business.  From full suites of promotional materials to a one off document, no job is too big or too small. What matters is it is done right and the final product clearly represents your business and the message you wish to convey.

 
 

marketing

social media

It's understandable for business owners to feel overwhelmed with the prospect of 'marketing' and all the facets that this includes.  From websites to customer communications, social media to branding, to wrap it all up in a neat little bundle that represents your business is sometimes better left to a third party.

Finding the right person to work with you across all elements can be tricky.  It is important to take the time to find that individual or business that 'get's' you and your business.  Whether you are looking for hands on marketing support, a strategist to walk you through a plan of attack or perhaps just some mentoring along the way, get in touch and we can get to know each other over a coffee.  Who knows, I could be your marketing 'unicorn'!

If you are a business owner, bogged down in the day to day operations of just 'getting it done' and the last thing on your mind is making sure you have a strong and engaging social presence, this is where I can help.

I specialise in creating relevant content for clients with a focus on community engagement to ensure growth across used mediums.  The more you interact with your followers the more you will see not only increased engagement on your pages but also an increase to your business operations.  After all Facebook and Instagram is the new 'word of mouth'!

Social Media services include; designing eye catching and relevant graphics, photography, copy writing, hashtag research and much more.
