Thoughtful, Effectual Graphic Design by Tamisha

You're here. That tells me you're either frustrated with your lack of graphic design skills, someone else's, or you just want to create beauty SOMEWHERE online, and have no idea where to start. T to the rescue. :-)

I started designing my own graphics years ago - before programs like Canva were a thing. I would use whatever was available - Paint, Google Picasa - whatever I could find. And those designs weren’t bad. But once I had a better tool, my learning curve stepped up quite a bit, and people starting asking me to design for them too.

Yes, there are better graphic design tools on the market now, but even so, MOST people (like you) probably still don’t know what to do with the tools or have the patience to design anything.

I can help. I didn't go to some fancy design school or get a degree in design either - I just have a wonderful eye for it. I get inspiration from brands that are minimal, pay attention to different formatting in magazines (I'm obsessed), and use my floral & home decor strength & eye to bring focus, color, and balance to the graphics I make.

I have designed suites of graphics for law firms, social media mavens, websites (my entire website, for example), and other brands/causes.

I enjoy the work I do. I take pride in quality, and it will be my goal to give you a product you'll love - where someone will WANT to buy your products & services. 

A common misconception about marketing is that it's just about a graphic with words on it. Marketing is SO much more than that. It's letting people know the work you do, why, & how all in one piece (or suite) of collateral, and doing it well. That's where I can help. I use an intuitive and factual approach to design something I think you'll love. 

When you decide to work with me, you’ll receive the designated amount of proofs for the package you choose & for review within 5 business days of your payment. This is the time to get real about what you like & don’t. I will usually do up to 3 edits for the package price, and additional edits are an added fee. When your graphics are ready, you’ll receive them in any format you request, whether that’s .jpg’s, .png’s, pdf’s, etc.

Browse some of my work below, and see if there's a package right for you. If I don't have a package available that works for you, email me at: hello@tamishaford.com, and I'll see what I can customize for you. Everything in my showcase is available in any customizable size you can dream up! You can give me exact dimensions you need, and I can design to that spec or if you don't have the dimensions, that's okay too.

I look forward to working with you or your business,

Tamisha

 

Graphic Work Showcase


Logo created for emerging events company in Dallas

They asked for very simple, green, black & white palette, and clean fonts. I also consulted with this client on the slogan.

header designs & cover pages

service announcement graphic

new blog post announcement

Thoughtful design for blog posts should include several key elements: 1) Gorgeous, hi-res photography, 2) A website link for the viewer to know where to go, 3) Clear directions & readable fonts, & 4) Titles of posts. I have added a special touch to include the category from the site to the post, so readers know what the general topic is about.

podcast graphic

Podcasts are VERY popular these days - almost as much or more as having a YouTube channel. Collateral for a podcast episode announcement can be minimal, simple, yet gorgeous or classy. I like sticking to 2-3 colors and no more, so as not to take away from the topic.

You should ENJOY announcing your services & products! All marketing is is being excited about telling people what you created for them & how to go about getting it - that's it. This design embellishes the season it's for as well as beautiful fonts and colors to compliment. It also gives the place to go to sign up, which is a must for graphic services announcements.

topic card

A simple topic card for posting on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook or other social media channels. The actual text/teaching/discussion would be placed on the social media channel itself, while the card is used to draw interest to the topic at-hand.

 

 

youtube thumbnail

Have you ever gone to YouTube channels and seen gorgeous cover photos with text on them vs. the ones with just a "snapshot" of some moment in time within the video?

Which ones are you more apt to want to watch?

Thumbs are necessary to create balance and cohesion across all of your YouTube videos - I can create these thumbnails for you. 

linked in cover

LinkedIn allows you to upload a cover to your profile. I can customize one with a quote or without one, using any palette or scheme you'd like.
