Running your business is your job.

Helping you market it is mine.

“Design is the silent ambassador of your brand.”

So said the late Paul Rand, one of America’s most illustrious and celebrated graphic designers. Good design — of your logo, your sales materials, your website — can lead your potential customers to think of your company as reliable and trustworthy, while a poor design can induce them to write you off as unprofessional, amateurish, or shady. As your brand’s visual identity is often the first impression your customers get of your business, it’s important that it sends a strong, clear, and inviting message. But coming up with that design and ensuring it’s used consistently throughout all your communication channels can be a challenge for even the most seasoned of business owners.

That’s where I can help. I am Elizabeth Manning, the freelance graphic designer and marketing specialist behind elm DesignWorks. I’ve been designing marketing materials and websites for companies large and small since 2001. I don’t offer a one-size-fits-all product to my clients. Instead, my services are custom-tailored to your business, to help you succeed in reaching and engaging with your target audience.

Design & Marketing Services

I offer a full range of design, marketing, and consulting services, all custom-tailored to fit your business goals and operation. Whether you’re in need of a one-off project, like a brochure, or a larger, more complex project, such as a complete branding package, I can be of assistance.

Your satisfaction is important to me, so I make sure that every job is custom-tailored to the client’s specific needs, goals, and budget. My process for any project is to first learn about you and your business, your industry, and your competitors, as well as your company’s offerings, objectives, strengths, and pain points. Armed with this knowledge, we work together to come up with a set of project goals, find a budget that works for you, and determine the best solution to put in place.

If you are interested in hiring me to work on a project for you, please fill out the form here with your contact details and a little information about the project. I’ll be in touch after I’ve received your message. If you prefer for me to follow up with you via phone, please let me know in the comments section and make sure to include your 10-digit phone number.

Thank you!
