Tame your design + marketing projects with a

Design Sidekick

Your company is growing and you’re starting to feel a major shift. You (or your team) can no longer do it all. You’re surrounded by too many projects and unrealistic deadlines. And you’re doing work you shouldn’t be doing (like staying past closing time trying to figure out which PDF format is the correct one for your magazine ad).

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT ALL – GET A DESIGN SIDEKICK TO HELP FREE UP YOUR TIME.

The Design Sidekick Package gives you access to all of my creative services, experience, knowledge, and support you need to free up your time so you can move your business forward.

Life after bringing me on board

  • No more email clutter from all the various marketing and design projects going on. We set up systems to streamline the process and improve communication between the entire project team.
  • You don’t have to waste time trying to find a different designer for each little project – you can get it all done in one place.
  • You have time to do the work that you love instead of spending hours trying to DIY-design your marketing materials
  • You have someone you can trust and communicate with on your team. (Not like the last designer that wouldn’t return your calls.)
  • Your design projects not only look better but they feel better to work on. They are stream-lined, organized, and everyone on the project is communicating better.
  • No more wasting time doing busywork like laying out a PDF for your opt-in. You can focus on creating meaningful content and strategy.

Jalene Hernández-Cabrijan

Owner & Creative Director

I’m going to bring over 20 years of graphic design and advertising experience to your business. You’re going to get the perfect combo of creativity, technical savviness, and marketing know-how.

I sincerely want to see your business grow and make 2018 your best year yet. Let’s do this!

  • Small businesses or organizations that value community and enrich people’s lives in some way. Either in a small everyday way (like the joy from the perfect pair of earrings), or in a big life-changing way (like access to clean drinking water).
  • Marketers or project managers that need a designer to help with a variety of work for their clients.
  • Small- to medium-sized ad or design agencies that need extra help during busy periods.
Who is this not for

  • Those without clear goals or projects.
  • Those that do not value working as a team.

“Jalene has a flare that’s hard to put into words. She can beautify and energize anything. She can take explicit, detailed direction and follow the plan well; she can also take a vague and nebulous idea and develop it into something tangible. Jalene has a gift, and she finds wonderful ways to apply herself in so many mediums.”

FAQ

How long is the retainer?
The minimum length is three months, but we can do as long as you need. You’ll save $100/mo. if you choose 6 months or more.

I don’t want to start the services now, but in a few months. Should I book now?
Yes! I only accept 4 retainer clients at a time, so book now to hold your spot. 

How many hours do I get?
I’m not going to say “unlimited” because I’m a human and not a robot. But you get as many hours as possible to get the tasks done. Instead of hours we focus on project goals and tasks. We start each month by identifying them and go from there. Typically, clients use about 20-30 hours per month.

I need to keep track of project hours for my company. Can you send me a timesheet?
Absolutely. I keep track of hours for myself and am more than happy to share them with you.

When are my monthly payments due?
Payments are due on the last day of the month for the following month.

What if my payment is late?
We pause on projects until payment is made.

What if I decide I want to cancel?
After the contract is signed, the 1st month is non-refundable. You can cancel with 30-days notice.
