a lot of hats
For you and your business, I wear
As a small business owner you need to wear a lot of hats, even ones that you didn't go to school for or never had any training in. Every time you turn around, you're Googling about one thing and searching for online tutorials on another.
The worst part is, you're pouring your heart and soul into your business and no one even knows about it! You're getting lost in today's saturated global market because you aren't well represented by your brand.
What if you could be spending your time developing your products and serving your customers, instead of searching for (or trying to become!) a brand strategist, logo designer, website designer, copywriter and content marketer.

My Brand Archetype: The Muse
Owner/Designer/Content Marketer/Strategic Partner
I am constantly seeking a balance between designer, business owner, marketer, student, mother, daughter, sister, friend, yogi, artist, traveler, photographer, explorer...I'm pretty sure it's an ever-shifting target!
I started Creative Mess Designs in 2016 when I was in need of a new adventure after health issues and a baby made it impossible to work in a typical 9-5 office. Since then I've fallen in love with brand strategy and design.
I'm also a Certified Content Marketing Specialist and hold a Masters of Architecture.
