Who is Crystal?
I’m a graphic/web designer and lover of all things branding! I’m also a dreamer, like YOU!
Crystal Loves Design is a vision I’ve had for a long time. This is also my second attempt at launching this very business. Why a second time? Well, let’s just say I wasn’t always confident in my gifts, and I let self-doubt and the fear of failing get the best of me. Then one day, I realized I certainly wasn’t happy or satisfied with where I was in my career. The time came where I needed to find a way to do what I loved on my own terms.
Through freelancing over the years, I’ve realized there are a lot of other dreamers in the world. I’ve dedicated my business to working with new entrepreneurs, who may have experienced and overcame the same feelings of fear and self-doubt I had, to strategically build effective brands which will lead to the success of their businesses.
Creative design has always been a passion of mine, but I just needed to commit to my vision, so here I am.
Why trust me with building your business’ brand identity?
Since I’ve entered the world of entrepreneurship a couple of times, I, of course, created the brand identity of my own ventures and learned A LOT in the process. Building a successful brand is so important for the growth of your business. And trust me, your brand extends far beyond a logo and business cards. Your brand conveys the overall personality and image of your business to your consumers/audience.
Hiring someone with the expertise to listen to your raw ideas and help you create a cohesive, yet attractive brand identity for your business will put you on the path to success. Luckily, I’m that girl who will put in the work to ensure your brand is FLAWLESS!
Not only do I have a passion for creating, but I also live for helping dreamers build their brand and give them a head start for success.
I have 6+ years of experience in graphic and web design, and I have a MA in Publications Design from the University of Baltimore. I also received a BA in Mass Communication with a focus in Marketing from Towson University. I’ve worked with clients in a variety of fields including the non-profit sector, blogging, beauty, photography, eCommerce, and more. I would describe my design style as simple and very clean, but I am definitely not afraid to push the envelope.
Although I love designing, I also love the other aspects of creating effective design, which include the exchange of ideas, doing a little research, planning, and developing dope concepts.
More about me!
Well, I’m a wife, lifestyle blogger, travel junkie, and newly adopted vegetarian (2nd attempt). I’m also addicted to Chipotle, brunchin’, and just living my best life.
