Heya — I’m Jamie.

I took my skills to full-time freelancer 4 years ago — and I haven’t looked back yet. From the very first year of running my design studio, I’ve had the pleasure of serving top clients in the online industry, grown my team of top-notch designers and exceeded any corporate salary I made in years past.

Now? I want to draw back the curtain on my systems, so you can take your freelance dreams to full-time status in no time. I love coming alongside my fellow designers to help you do the same!

That’s why I’ve released our exact client brand questionnaire — so you can take my template + streamline your freelance business with ease (and without spending a penny).
