Marketing and Design Consultant

About Stacy Harrison

I’m more than a designer.

You need more than a designer. I focus on the why behind your project in order to create a truly successful website or marketing strategy. The big picture is important so I can work holistically and efficiently. I work hard to develop a wide range of skills, mostly because it makes me genuinely happy.

  • Print & web layout designer
  • UX designer
  • Marketing & web copywriter
  • Marketing strategist
  • Design mentor
  • Avid autodidact
  • Pinballer

 

I have a goal.

My goal is to have a marked positive effect on your business. Increase sales through a marketing strategy. Drive more traffic on your newly designed website. Implement an efficient workflow for your company to save time and money. My favorite clients have ambitious business goals, and I do everything I can to help them.

 

I find ways to streamline.

Inefficiency is a pet peeve, and I do everything possible to streamline both your workflow and mine. I ask the necessary questions up front to avoid obstacles and roadblocks later down the line. Knowing the big picture helps me solve the right problem. Deadlines are firm, whether self-imposed or client-determined; no excuses allowed.

 

I find ways to balance.

Stakeholders and users are equally important to any project. What’s best for your users is often what’s best for your business. In order to better understand both your company and the users, I spend time researching to understand your industry and your users’ pain points before diving into the design of the project.

 

We’ll work together well if:

  • You’re looking for a designer who understands how a business works and how to customize a marketing strategy to your unique company.
  • You need an analytical designer who can write, strategize, and code.
  • You have a collaborative mindset.
  • You want a designer who can work without training wheels, while maintaining consistent communication.
  • Your business has a big goal to reach in the next year.

Stacy helped our organization create a new website for the Towpath Trilogy race series at Cleveland GiveCamp 2015. She worked on many aspects of the site, and created a web experience that strongly reflects our brand values. We were very impressed with the way she was able to integrate our legacy art work in a fun, quirky way that feels modern.
