You know you want to work with a graphic designer, but you’re feeling overwhelmed as to where to begin. Maybe you’ve tried piecing things together or done something temporary, but it doesn’t feel quite right, you want something polished and professional.
You want to work with someone that can guide you through the process, help you clarify the image you want to put out into the world, someone that will create a brand worthy of YOU.
I’m Maria Watkins and I am passionate about helping my clients pull together a graphic brand that is unmistakably all about them. This isn’t about cookie cutter clipart with a line of type, it’s about you and creating a seamless brand that will make you SHINE.
Whether you are a bride looking for memorable stationery or a business looking for design worthy of your expertise and knowledge... Working with you to identify your design needs and make them a reality is my goal. Making you look good is my priority.
When I’m entrusted to create designs for you, I see it as more than just a one-time project. My intention is to build a long-term relationship by delivering quality, customdesigns and the type of service or hospitality one extends to family and friends.
It truly brings me joy that so many of my clients become an extension of my friends and family. I welcome the opportunity to make you a part of my circle.
Graphic design has been my thing as long as I can remember. I’m talking way back to the days of big hair and early Madonna. While other kids were out playing in the neighborhood, I was creating detective badges for my BFF and doodling my favorite rock band logos. While the hairstyles have changed, my excitement for design hasn’t. I still enjoy each new project that comes my way, working directly with my clients, hearing their story, understanding their vision and creating unique designs for their special event or business brings me great joy. I look forward to hearing all about your design needs and creating something special just for you.
I have other passions outside of design, the most important of those would be my family. Spending downtime time with Greg (my hubby) and our kiddos Kat and Nick is how I enjoy spending my free time. In addition to that, I feel fortunate to have a wonderful group of friends and extended family (I’m Greek so I have lots of cousins, and we all like to hang out).
I also love to travel and wish we could do more, but that school and work thing seem to hamper that. One of my favorite places to visit is Disney World, I am a self-admitted Mouse Junkie and get an itching to go back at least once a year. I could talk your ear off about all things Disney (consider yourself warned) and get giddy just thinking about it. When I’m not planning a trip to Disney I’m happy with a nice resort on the beach with a pool and a swim up bar.
