Launching boutique communications firm

I am ecstatic to announce that I’m a co-owner and partner in Elm Creative, a boutique communications firm.

We are a women-owned small business currently based out of Knoxville, Tennessee but have a national market. Our mission is to add value to society by amplifying the good work of others. That’s why we proudly specialize in servicing nonprofits, schools, community development organizations, and conscientious businesses. While our clients include a wide array, they have one common denominator—they add value to society.

I will continue to do consulting work through Luna Media, but now my design and development work will be run through Elm Creative.

Stop by elmcreates.com and check out our clients and projects!

Charter school website launch

I have to say, I am really proud of this site. The Early College of Arvada is a college preparatory, free public charter school of 300 students. ECA partners with University of Colorado at Denver to provide students the opportunity to take college courses while still receiving the high levels of support offered at the high school level.

They had an urgent need to redesign their website, and I am so happy to have helped achieve that goal. I think their site tells their story, mission, and future seamlessly and I couldn’t be prouder.

Campus news website launch

tntodayI launched the redesign of Tennessee Today on this morning. Highlights of this redesign include providing an outstanding mobile experience, spotlighting news from our colleges, providing an easy way to sign up for and view past issues of our daily e-newsletter, providing story-to-story navigation and more efficient ways to browse stories of a similar topic, and drawing attention to ongoing campus news.

This project has been in the works for nearly two years and is a major accomplishment. Read more about the redesign or visit Tennessee Today.

Crafty door decoration

We have a very dear couple as close friends. The hubby friend chiseled a slate tile into a heart. He tried hanging it with a copper nail, but had no luck. Knowing that I am a crafty woman, he gifted it to me. I tried to get it to work with my decorations, but I couldn’t so I had the idea to craft it and then gift it back to them.

I painted a serif “H” on it in a cream color (their last name begins with H) and let it dry. Then I hung a jute rope off it and tied a bow with burlap ribbon with a teal chevron pattern.

Adoraballs. They love it 🙂
