Hello there! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Ann Marie – a freelance writer and designer, and a believer in stories. You see, stories are more than something we read to kids at bedtime. Stories are interwoven into everything we do and tell us how a person or company got to where they are. Usually, we just call these stories by a different name, such as “brand identity.”
An organization’s story earns trust from their customer (or at least it should). Understanding the story of a person or company gives the customer a glimpse into who they are in order to determine their potential to take you where you want to go.
So, in order to know me and what I have to offer (and I assume you do considering you’re reading my “About” page), you must first know my story.
As an undergraduate searching for the right major, my wise grandfather told me that the secret to a successful and fulfilling career was to figure out what I would do for free and find a way to get paid for it. Since writing was my first love, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to write in one form or another. So I declared my major in English.
While in school I took a few graphic design classes and realized that design was starting to compete for my affections. Fortunately for me, writing and design go hand in hand. So, as a junior in college I got my first marketing internship, and I knew I found the thing I would do for free.
You see, every brand has a story to tell, and that story is why people buy their product. People buy what they believe in, and they believe what they know.
Not every brand knows how to tell their story. That’s where I come in. I help organizations tell their story, and I do it through innovative marketing that combines good design and creative writing.
Whether it be email campaigns, blog posts, web content, social media marketing, newsletters, etc. your brand needs to tell your story. Let me help, and we’ll share your story together.
