The Process

Finding your Voice

When you speak to a customer, how do you present yourself? Do you wear a suit? Do you dress casually, tell a joke and try to put the customer at ease?

These details speak more than words alone ever can. The first impression lets your customers know who you are. Your website and print materials are your representatives to the world and should always match your individual message.

No matter what kind of project, I'll be sure to take the time to find out who you are and make sure every project matches your unique voice.

Creating your Project

Working with a designer can be intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Over the last 10 years, I've worked on all kinds of projects with all kinds of people - I know how to walk you through the process so you know what to expect and when to expect it. I'll explain step by step how a proposed design meets your goals, and if it doesn't, I'll work with you to find a better solution.

I can also help you create long term strategies for your business. Want to start social media or email campaigns? I can help you determine what resources are needed and what next steps will ensure a successful campaign.

Bringing it to Life

Whether a project is web, print, email, or social media based, I deliver a professional product.

I stay current with the latest web techniques and standards so I can write clean, beautiful code. My print projects come well-organized and clearly labeled for your printer or for your company's future use.

I pride myself on being able to deliver a variety of quality products, but a jack of all trades is master of none. If there is an area where I cannot produce a high quality result, I will try to direct you to someone who can.

The Work

The Human

Adrianne Schoen

Despite my 10+ years as a professional designer, I might be better known to the internet as the creator of the virtual costume.

That's me in a nutshell: living every day creatively, with humor and an incurable case of nerdiness. I take my work seriously, but that doesn't mean it can't also be fun.

I am originally from Chicago, IL (where hot dogs are made correctly). I earned my art and design degree at Columbia College Chicago. Since then, I have worked with companies ranging from pharmaceuticals to cirque. Most recently, I had the pleasure to work in DISH Network's email marketing department. I currently reside in beautiful Montreal.
