Well hey there and thanks for stopping over in my little corner of the internet. It’s so nice to meet you! Chances are if you’re here, you’re probably looking for some branding help. One of the main points I always stress to potential clients is to hire someone who resonates with you. And if that’s not me, that is totally okay! (I hope we can still be friends though!) So I want to take a moment and tell you a bit about myself and why I’m here.
My name is Michaela. I’m a mom, wife, rom-com lover, fashionista-wanna-be, caffeine fiend graphic designer, and so much more. I first started teaching myself graphic design when I was 16. Within a year, I was selling tumblr themes and images I had coded and designed on my own. I was fortunate enough to attend a high school with different class options, so my senior year I decided to take a class on graphic design. That class made my passion grow even stronger, and I knew I wanted to go to school for graphic design and continue my passion.
During my senior year, while I thought I was figuring out my entire future, it turned out my future was already decided as I found out I was pregnant. After being talked out of a graphic design major by close family, I opted for a “safe” major - Business Management. After high school, I worked as a marketing manager for a local Realtor while getting my associates degree.
Fast forward a few years, my high school sweetheart and I got married, had another baby, and found ourselves moving from a small New Hampshire town all the way to Orlando, Florida. I covered so much more of this in my book but I’ll keep it short so this blog post isn’t super long!
I found myself staying home with our two children while my husband attended college and worked full time. I suffered from postpartum depression and I knew I needed to find myself again. I got a few graphic design clients and what started as a hobby quickly turned into the multi-figure business I have today, and I am so grateful for all of my clients - my dream would not be possible without them.
I’m otherwise pretty boring. I love fashion, though I am still learning how to express myself this way. I’m hoping to turn this blog into more of a fashion blog, but I suppose we will see how well that goes. I hope this helped you get to know me a little better! What’s a fun fact about you?
