A little bit about me
I think we have covered my name but I’ll say it again… My name is Krysta Dyer and I am a creative soul at heart. In my younger years, I spent a lot of my free time sketching, coloring my hair or perfecting my eye makeup skills. Anything that called for creativity, I was there! During my high school career, I was introduced to two magical programs called Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I spent a lot of time learning the in’s and out’s of these programs in order to create beautiful digital designs. When I am not working on client projects, I am researching and mastering the latest design trends, resources and techniques to ensure my creativity and skills stay up to date!
When I first started utilizing my design skills for business, I spent a lot of time on freelance platforms such as UpWork, Design Crowd and 99Designs. During this experience, I learned a great deal about building business relationships and how to properly quote projects all while racking up some strong portfolio pieces.
Once I had a strong portfolio built and some experience under my belt, I began applying for a career position in the Graphic Design & Marketing industry. After a few interviews, I landed a role working for a small marketing firm called Strategic Marketing Systems, located in St Clair Shores, MI. My position required not only graphic design skills but web development as well. I had taken some web design courses in college and therefore knew the basics (HTML, CSS, PHP, JS, etc.) and felt confident accepting the position. During my time with Strategic Marketing Systems, I mastered designing and developing WordPress websites specifically for restaurants, auto shops and chiropractics. I officially fell in love with helping businesses start or re-establish their online presence while increasing overall sales.
Fast forward about 7 years, I am now successfully running my own full-time business from home. Not only do I have my own established list of clientele, I also work as a sub-contractor for a few marketing firms and creative agencies who hand over their over-flow of Website Development and Branding Design work.
