You need a brand– consistent imagery that helps others recognize your business and remember what it’s all about. Branding often starts with a logo, and I’d love to get started on a logo for you!
Brochures, bags, business cards, banners, billboards– if it can be printed, I can design the file!
I’ve built simple, brochure-style websites and complicated, responsive, e-commerce websites. My favorite projects involve WordPress. What can I build for you?
Maybe you need a website, but you don’t have high-quality product images to display. Or maybe you need a brochure, but you’re not sure exactly what the brochure should say. Don’t worry– I’ll use my writing and photography skills to make sure your project comes together smoothly.

“Look what I found in the bottom of my bag!” Danielle said, plopping a business card down in front of me. We were both at The Little Things Birth and Baby Expo, minding our booths and making connections. The business card Danielle had found had obviously been a few miles in the bottom of that bag, but what was most notable was how different it was from her current business card, which she set next to it for comparison.
On one business card, the business name was bold and legible; on the other, it was an afterthought. One carried Danielle’s logo and the style of her brand; the other used stock artwork that no longer had anything to do with the products she carries. Guess which one she is proud to hand out? Guess which one I am proud to have designed?
For both Danielle and I, the comparison showed us a symbol of personal growth, business growth, and our commitment to go beyond the generic to create something our customers will use and treasure. And for Down to Earth Boutique, having professional branding is part of being ready to move into a retail space very soon!
Changing a business’s name and branding is a pretty big deal– you have to make some big decisions, hire a graphic designer, have your website rebuilt, print new business cards…
But when you are a graphic designer and you want to rebuild your website anyway (because it seemed unfair that several of my clients had better websites than me), all that’s left is to make the big decisions and do the work.
First the decisions. I thought about renaming my business “McKeever Design and Copywriting and WordPress Websites and Occasionally Motion Graphics and Social Media Assistance and Any Other Media Tasks That You Need Help With.” However, after much thought, I decided that “McKeever Multimedia” had a better ring to it.
Next, the work. As with all of my logo design projects, I spent time brainstorming, sketching, and getting feedback. As I built my website I leaned heavily on my previous experience building WordPress sites, but I also did a lot of new research. I dove further into CSS and PHP than I had before, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I learned a lot.
That’s the main reason I chose the name “McKeever Multimedia”: I love to learn. I needed a name that I wouldn’t have to append every time I added a new skill to my business offerings. Hopefully I won’t outgrow this business name or logo anytime soon– but I’ll keep on learning and growing, and someday I will!
