We know what it’s like to feel

limited by your budget...

As a self-taught graphic designer and brand strategist, I know what it’s like to build a business from the ground up. when my design journey began, I was on the lookout for anyone who would be willing to work with my small business (i.e. minimal and limited) budget.

hen my design journey began, I was on the lookout for anyone who would be willing to work with my small business (i.e. minimal and limited) budget. With a newborn, a military husband with a military paycheck and no second source of income, all I wanted was for someone to be a bit flexible with my attempts at a new design.

Each design project starts with an introductory phone call or Google Hangout. Your business is a big deal to you and having the opportunity to be a part of something that means so much to you, is a very big deal to me. Entrusting me with your brain child isn't something I take lightly. This is a time to ask questions!

-Alison @ That Which Nourishes

I almost wish I had another blog just to experience the excitement I had upon seeing the finished product of my logo design from Courtney. It was like every Christmas morning put together to see my brand come to life in a way I didn't even know how to visualize. From start to finish, she brainstormed with me, listening so well to my vision and gently steering me toward a finished product of which I couldn't be more proud. Her quick responses (even during a hurricane in her town!!) left me knowing my blog-baby was in the most capable of hands. Her work is quality, her manner, classy, and her overall capability makes her one to watch in graphic design.

Courtney was an answer to my prayer for my website!  She not only helped migrate my blog to Wordpress but helped me get things up and running exactly how I envisioned it.  The logo she designed made me giddy with excitement!  She asked me all the right questions and designed the perfect logo to help me launch my new and improved Wordpress blog.  I will most certainly be using Courtney again in the future and feel confident in recommending her to others.  She was sweet, kind, helpful, patient, and very responsive!  An absolute pleasure to work with- thank you, Courtney!

Working with Courtney was a dream! I searched for a web designer that would understand the heart behind my products and I got that-plus a friend! From our first conversation, Courtney took my message and was able to translate that so beautifully into my brand and website. Everything- from the tiny details in the curls of the logo to the totally custom patterns- were so well done. She was so easy to work with and totally didn’t mind my crazy questions as a newbie website owner. She took the time to walk me through every single step of set up, maintenance everything. She had so many extra details and surprises when we finished my website that I was completely overwhelmed with just how beautiful it all came together.  I also needed some extra design work and let me tell you- she hit it out of the park every time! I am so grateful for her expert opinion and design eye- but even more so for the way she calmed my nerves up to the launch and the true business friend she became to me. Thank you for taking my dream and making it the reality that my customers experience every time they come to my site!

Where do I begin?  Courtney Kirkland is one of a kind!  In a society of “good enough,” Courtney displays a refreshing quality of excellence; a rarity indeed.  She understood the personality and focus of my blog & created a logo that complimented my style.  I was amazed at how willing Courtney was to step outside of the call of duty to assist me with questions as I had them.  I have already recommended Courtney’s service not only for her creative ability & prompt turnaround but for her unparalleled excellence.  She is not satisfied with a project until her customer is 150% pleased with the deliverable.  I appreciate Courtney and admire her talent and work ethic.  It becomes promptly evident that Courtney answers to God for her performance.  She’s not working, she’s serving and I love that.

In creating this vision for ministry, Courtney displayed an ability to be detail-oriented, supportive, and trustworthy. It has been a pleasure to work with someone that understands my divine assignment, as well as her own. God has blessed Courtney with the knowledge and creativity necessary to bring forth His purposes for any ministry, organization, or business. I pray blessings upon the calling on her life, and I highly recommend others to partner with her in creating any purposeful design.
