Not Looking for Projects Right Now


Run by a graphic designer with an MBA and substantial marketing experience, Garnet Creative is the partner you've been seeking. Garnet understands business from your perspective, and will work seamlessly with you and your team to accomplish your goals.

Just getting started? Let's create or flesh out your product roadmap and launch plan, and start building the print and digital assets you need for internal and external communications. I love startups and can get things moving quickly!

Want to grow? Let's review your current marketing, check out what your key competitors are doing, and identify opportunities to improve.

Garnet's Creative's key strengths are in clarifying your audience(s) and their needs, and building a product roadmap and communications to reach them. Services focus on graphic design, including identity, publications, websites (mostly WordPress) and more. Consulting includes message development, business strategy and product management. Although my client base is diverse, I focus primarily on non-profits and B2B technology companies.

Inquiries are welcome from prospective clients or employers, as well as agencies and design firms. Garnet Creative services are available on a freelance or contract basis.
