hey there! i’m molly.

a twenty-something brand & graphic designer for the modern woman, here to help you bring your brilliant ideas to life.

Let me guess... you don't want a brand that just looks pretty, but a brand that resonates with and speaks to the right people.

That's right. I'm talking about your dream clients. 

The truth is... regardless of what industry you're in, there's countless of others trying to get into the industry too. 

But you don't want to be "just another photographer, copywriter, artist, etc." 

You want to build a strong, confident, and relatable brand identity that will make people want to look twice and actually be interested in what you're saying and doing.

So when they're ready to hire their dream wedding photographer to capture their special day  or a brand photographer to help them pose effortlessly and beautifully in front of the camera, you'll be at the top of their mind. 

my job? to help you create a brand that not only represents you, but speaks volume to your dream clients as well.

The whole you, and not just part of you.

When we work together, my goal isn't to get you to the destination as quickly as possible (but rest assured, we will get to the destination). It's to help you gain the clarity and confidence you (and your client) need to fully show up, so when we're done creating your visual brand identity, you're ready to serve your dream clients and they'll be ready to hire you too.

brand identity

Branding is all about how people perceive you and your business. It’s a chance for your dream clients to connect with you — to see your personality, sense, style, etc. Why not make the investment to help them fall in love with you?

social media

We live in a digital age, where having an online presence is essential to building brand awareness and loyalty with new and old clients, customers, and our community. The good news? I’m well-versed in Instagram and Pinterest.

PDF design

In addition to helping you establish your brand and creating social media assets, I also help many of my clients with curating PDFs — magazines, ebooks, lead magnets, etc. While Photoshop is my butter, InDesign is my jam.

— the process


1. discovery call

First, we'll get on a call to see if we're a good fit! On this call, I'd love learn about you and your brand! Your dreams, goals, and story.

Then, we'll talk about my design process and philosophy. And we'll finish off the call with any questions or concerns you might have. 

2. decision + paperwork -

Once you've decided you'd like to work together, I'll send over the contract and invoice. I require a 50% deposit fee to book my calendar spot. 

3. onboarding -

Once the paperwork is all done, we'll get you set up! I'll invite you to our Asana workspace (project timelines, communication, etc. - all in one place!), send you the branding questionnaire to get started on, and invite you to our collaborative Pinterest board. 

4. the creative process -

Once your branding questionnaire is done, we'll start working on your branding elements like logo concepts, mood boards, etc.

Once your brand board is finalized, we'll move on to your brand collateral (depending on which package you choose). 

5. your new brand is ready!! -

Once everything is finalized and done, I'll send you your final files! (After the full payment is received.)

Woohoo! Can't wait to see your beautiful brand in action.

client testimonials —

“Working with Molly has been great as it has allowed me to dive deep into trying to figure out who I am as an artist and the various aspects that should be considered before building your aesthetic brand. 

It was important for me to feel that I connected with a graphic designer. I appreciated being able to have a discovery call for us to chat and talk about ourselves and our businesses to see whether we thought professionally we would work well together. 

The branding questionnaire Molly sent really helped me become more focused in creating an experience within my business that is aimed at my ideal client. I appreciated the fact that Molly was patient with me while I figured out my preferences with font and colors, etc. This took me a bit of time and Molly never made me feel guilty about sometimes being unsure or taking a bit longer to decide.

I am excited about the graphics designed and feel it has elevated my brand. Thanks Molly!

“I am very excited to start giving my branded welcome guide to my future Just Me clients. I know it presents my work and all the information in a simple, cohesive, and pretty way. 

Having Molly find the perfect fonts and create these branding elements saved me a lot of time, and that’s what I valued most! Now that she has my brand elements, it would be so easy to send over inspiration for another design idea, and for her to run with it. 

She’s such a great resource—and also a lovely woman to know.”
