Thoughtful & Effective 

A hard-working problem-solver.

Introduction

MLC was established in 2016 with a desire to cut through the corporate maze of complications and work directly with clients who understand that design matters. After working at an Agency for three years, I opened my own business and did a somersault right off a ledge. It has been both the hardest and the best thing I have ever done. Five years later I am standing strong and wake up every day to do what I love. 

Objective

MLC works with ambitious brands that are looking to create distinction through the power of design. We believe marketing work is way more than "making the logo bigger. We craft branding and design that tell your authentic story and reach audiences on a new level. My design process is rooted in classic design principles and theory. My work is thoughtful and most importantly, effective. 

Midwestern Disposition

MLC is a utilitarian design studio. After working with startups and small businesses over the years I know that being pragmatic about the design process is essential. Exceptional design can also be affordable. Good design for all. I am the Ikea of design studios. 

 

Building a brand image

adds Value to your business & your customers. 

When you invest in your brand, your business will grow. Your logo and branding is the message (good or bad) that you are sending to your customers. Consumers know how to spot a good product and your aesthetic gives you the edge of credibility. This comes in the form of Image and tone. MLC will help you to clearly communicate your business's unique narrative. Creative is the variable of success.

I want to work with entrepreneurs.

As a small business, I understand what it takes.  We get the anxious struggle, the sleepless late nights, and the sweat it too to turn your business a reality.  I love the chase and I know you do too. The great thing about my studio is it allows me to be entrepreneurial and creative. 

 

That is why I offer pricing that is catered to small businesses and startups. Our small business packages are a great way for you to build your brand identity, website, or revamp your older/outdated site.
