Client Results
  • In the first three months after my new brand and website went live, I secured enough blog sponsorships to pay for the design itself. I was blown away by the enthusiasm I received from not only my blog readers, but from the brands who I work with as well! Since then, my monthly page views have consistently increased and I’ve seen my highest LTK revenue from my blog to date (AKA my investment was immediately was worth it). Aesthetically, my entire brand identity and the functionality of my website has been elevated to a level I only used to dream of. Jordan thoughtfully took all of my (many) ideas, goals, and personal preferences and strategically shaped them into a brand/site design that isn’t only beautiful and uniquely me, but was also engineered to optimize the revenue aspects of my blog. Jordan was also an absolute JOY to work with— super communicative, unbelievably organized, and patient throughout the whole process and all of the little tweaks we made to get the design exactly where we wanted it. I now recommend Jordan whenever I know of someone in need of a brand design, refresh, or an incredible website. She is a rare find and an industry standout, truly!

  • As any good website should show, the real results are now displaying months after wrapping my work with Jordan. My website is fresh and different, helping me stand out in a very competitive industry. Jordan’s thoughtful designs are aiding in selling my clients on my value before they even inquire. Leveling up my website, along with enhancing overall value in my client experience, has put me $15k ahead of where I was last year with my old website, and bookings have just kept going up. Thanks to the intuitive design (and a great developer — take Jordan’s recommendations!), I’m ranking higher and higher on Google every day. Stop whatever you’re doing and book her, book her, book her!

General Process
  • One

    Consultation

    After you inquire, we’ll schedule a call to talk through the scope of your project and brand goals, and to see if we’re a good fit.

  • Two

    Booking

    If you’re ready to move forward, you’ll receive a contract and invoice securing your spot on my calendar. Once both have been completed, your start date will be reserved.

  • Three

    Onboarding

    After booking, it’s your opportunity to sift through your inspiration and decide what to share with me. You’ll receive a few planning questionnaires to work on while you await a start date. Together, we’ll track your project via Monday.com to ensure everything stays on track.

  • Four

    Discovery

    When your start date arrives and onboarding is completed, I’ll present a few big-picture design concepts and you’ll get to select the concept that resonates the most. This will define the cohesive direction for your brand — it’s such a fun step in seeing your ideas e-imagined!

  • Five

    Refining

    I’ll finalize your visual identity and/or begin custom blog designs and send a presentation for you to review. You’ll gather your thoughts and provide feedback. From there, we’ll make revisions and polish the designs until everything is just right.

  • Six

    Delivery

    Once the design is approved and finalized, I will prepare your final files for desktop & mobile design and send them to your developer. If you’d like to take your project even further, at this point you are welcome to add on other design assets if you haven’t done so already!

FAQs
  • Q:

    What happens in brand development?

    A:

    All the fundamental elements of building a cohesive digital presence. I’ll take you through balancing strategy and artistry as we dive deep into your business goals, target audience and visual inspiration. From there, we’ll collaborate on a concept that will create a beautiful brand. This will include your visual identity and any collateral in your package.
  • Q:

    What happens in the initial presentation?

    A:

    Brand Strategy & Creative Direction --

    We present 1-3 different mood board concepts in the beginning of our design process. It’s so important to research, strategize and establish a clear direction before any real design starts. You might think you know what you want, but there could be another concept that fits what you’re looking for even better, so it’s good to see your options upfront. That way we can move forward with the One Concept Method, in which we will choose the strongest concept & design and present it in a way that is thorough and refined.
  • Q:

    Tell me more about Web Development.

    A:

    Web Development is the final step in bringing your vision online. Developers take our completely-from-scratch designs and code them on to WordPress.

    I have a tight-knit circle of excellent WordPress developers I can refer you to! When our designs are handed off to development, I’ll work hand-in-hand with them to fine-tune your blog to ensures it’s functioning just the way we envisioned it in the design process. Once it’s perfect, we will send it to you to review and request any changes before installing and going live.

    Web Development is NOT included in our design fees. Development is quoted separately and provided by our partnering developers.
  • Q:

    How soon can we start?

    A:

    Start dates vary — inquire to receive information on working together or tune in on Instagram where I often share availability on my stories.
  • Q:

    Do you offer custom packages?

    A:

    Yes! Let’s chat about what you need in order to grow your business and I can tailor a package just for you.
  • Q:

    Can I book a package with just a logo design?

    A:

    I intentionally do not offer this service. Here’s why I only offer branding in conjunction with web design: A well constructed (and therefore effective) brand needs to be built upon what attracts your ideal audience and have cohesion across all visuals. In my experience, a brand that tries to convey everything in just a logo always falls flat, and most end up “rebranding” soon after, which is an expensive mistake I want to help you avoid.
  • Q:

    What else will I need to bring our project to life?

    A:

    For our website design project, you’ll also want to book a website developer and copywriter. If you need recommendations, I’m happy to share my trusted referrals!

Hi, I’m

The founder and designer behind Studio 9 Co. With over 9 years of industry experience, I’m deeply motivated by turning websites into stories and stories into brand loyalty. My love for modern, minimalistic design first took root when I studied interior architecture / design in college. The defining qualities of a person’s space and story never cease to give me a rush of inspiration and served as the catalyst for starting this studio in 2012.

The early years of my design career were spent in Charleston, South Carolina and I now reside in Ohio with my husband, two children and our quite lovable 100lb pup. In my free time (what is that with running a business and small children?!) you can find me re-designing another room in our house, sipping a dry red or making plans for our next trip to the mountains.

Our honest philosophies might align if…

  • ONE
    You value working relationships with kind and transparent communication, knowing that this opens the doors for incredible rushes of inspiration and effective results.
  • TWO
    You appreciate the value of outsourcing to an expert who can imbue your brand with a balance of strategy and artistry.
  • THREE
    You’re seasoned in business and you want your brand to reflect that, or you have a new project that needs to create an instant online home for a loyal following.
  • FOUR
    Your overall aesthetic could be described as any of the following: clean, minimal, creative, artistic, modern, edgy, editorial.
