When I met Jackie and sat down to talk with her about some projects, wow! She is amazing with her creative ideas, but wait…she can implement them as well. She is the Queen of Get Shit Done. Jackie is the driving force behind an entrepreneur’s business. She has given me time back. I am excited to have her as a partner. Looking forward to getting more shit done!
Jackie is a pleasure to work with, she helped me create a template for my business social media. She did this with ease and efficiency. I was able to make my vision come to life and maximize my time, and the images are gorgeous. She even walked me through a zoom call explaining the features and how to use the product. If you need to get shit done, she’s your girl!
Jackie is exceptional at what she does. She has a keen eye for branding, provides top-notch verbal and visual communication, and can deliver work that will help your organization grow. She truly cares for you and your cause and is such a pleasure to work with.
Jackie took the time to understand my vision and went to work making it everything I hoped for. I’ve worked with graphic designers in the past and they never truly understood the heart behind the project. Jackie is very personable and professional, which makes her the absolute best to work with!
Yoga Shelter has had the pleasure of using Jackie for design services for our teacher training program. Not only did she manage to understand my design requests and questions all via email, but she also worked quickly and intuitively put something together that aligned with our brand. Jackie is professional, responsive, knowledgeable and designed wonderful work for us. We are so appreciative and will definitely be using her services again in the future!

What's the deal with privacy policies on websites?
If you collected ANYTHING on your website the answer is a resounding YES.
✔ That means if you collect credit card info you’re a yes.
✔ If you have a very simple contact form you’re a yes.
✔ If your site collects cookies you’re a yes.
✔ Don’t know if your site collects cookies? You’re still probably a yes.
New Headshots: What to request for your website
and many of them have asked if I have any recommendations for what to ask the photographer for. And it just so happens I do.
For your personal headshots, do what ever makes you feel confident and happy but for use on your website we need to think bigger. No really, I mean we need bigger photos! A headshot is usually a square photo but if you want those large, banner-type photos on your site, a square headshot is not going to cut it.
5 Reasons You Need To Own Your Website Shit
Own your hosting. Own your themes and plugins. Own it all.
I cannot stress this enough. You, the business owner or individual, need to own all of your own digital assets. Regardless of whether you know what to do with your domain once you buy it or have a clue what a host is or does… make sure when you acquire these things, they are IN YOUR NAME.
What files you need with every new logo
New logos are exciting. When you release your new logo your vision and your business start to come to life. You’ve got your jpegs and maybe a transparent gif. You can put your logo all over the internet and maybe even on some swag. But let me ask you this…could you blow your logo up and put it on a billboard?
If you received any files from your designer that end is these file extensions, you can have that billboard.
