Consulting services

We also offer consulting services to select clients. We have a broad range of skills and can help with everything from app development to print design.

What we know

We’ve been working on the web since it was in its infancy. Over that time, we’ve picked up a whole range of different skills that we’re constantly sharpening.

Want an accessibility audit? We can do that. UX and user research? Sure. A React app plus an accompanying API running on AWS? You got it. What about a design system built from scratch? You get the idea: we’re here to help you kick ass.

I began my quest for a graphic designer a couple of years ago when the seeds for my Nightmare Nibbler project were first sown. Although I had never gone through such a creative process like this before, I had a pre-determined list of qualities that I was looking for in the person I was going to entrust with “my baby”—a few of them included: creativity, talent, good humor, patience, efficiency, flexibility and, as a new small business owner—affordability! I found all of these characteristics and more in Sarah! From day one until the recent launch of my business, Sarah remained enthusiastic and passionate about each of the design elements she was working on. She easily grasped my needs and produced design ideas for my consideration in a timely manner. Sarah’s combination of creativity and professionalism was exactly what I was looking for and what I needed. I look forward to working with Sarah again on any future design needs that I may have! Thanks a million Sarah!!

The company we keep

Here’s what you can expect of working with us:

  • Frequent status updates. Communication is what makes or breaks a project.
  • Clear milestones, ownership, and deliverables. Setting expectations up-front and having clear lines of delivery makes for a smoother, more pleasant experience.
  • Friendly, open, and transparent communication. It’s easier to be straightforward about concerns, delays, improvements, or suggestions. When we each respect one another’s time, we can get more done.
  • Zero bullshit. We don’t believe in busywork, complex hierarchies of middle-management, or needless meetings. Instead, we’re going to focus on getting things done and getting them done well.
  • Agility and pragmatism. We aren’t dogmatic about things, and we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we’ll work with you to determine the technologies, tools, and process that best fits your needs.
  • A stress-free launch day. We know launching a product is a big deal. We’ll be on call for you all day, taking care of anything unexpected that comes up. That way, all you need to do is sit back and watch the compliments come rolling in.
