Catherine Haugland: Graphic Designer & Visual Branding Expert
I began my penchant for pairing pretties through the art of collage at a young age. Magazines didn’t stand a chance around our house and glue was always in great demand. My first works of art consisted of hodge-podging everything together to create my very own ‘masterpieces’. My affinity for the mix and match never waned. All of those hours spent arranging at the kitchen table as a kid unwittingly helped prepare me for my future as a collage artist. These days my work is still an arrangement of bits and pieces, but they’re of a different genre. The internet allowed me to take things a few steps further.
Today I’m sole proprietress of my own very successful home-based business Avalon Rose where I enjoy making my own hours and being my own boss. I work as a graphic design artist and code specialist and enjoy every minute of it.
Throughout my decade long journey in digital design, I’ve learned much about the process and all it entails. My work has been featured in books, magazines and on television, most notably on The Deadliest Catch where the crew of The Cornelia Marie dons an Avalon Rose custom branded logo. I’ve worked with clients around the globe to bring their brands to the front line.
The Internet moves quickly. Things change in an instant. I’m constantly keeping myself up to date on the latest and greatest in coding and behind the scenes SEO practices.
I use my excellent and innate intuition to craft visual brand stories that exceed my clients expectations. While I’m not a mindreader, I’m a good in-between-the-lines reader. Many times a client doesn’t realize the wealth of information they are giving me to create a design that is not only beautiful, but inherently genuine and two hundred percent personal. Your website design is about YOU and your brand. Love your look and it shows. Once you’ve got your brand in the forefront of their memory they’re hooked. That’s what it’s all about.
You won’t find another design like an Avalon Rose design. That’s because the majority of graphics I use in my work are my own that I’ve created just for my clients. My job is to turn heads in your direction. The designs I create are unique to you. Never will you be mistaken for another.
Looks aren’t everything. Your online presence is the world’s doorway to your business and proper coding is the key to the door. With only one chance to make a first impression, your site has to catch the eye of both your customers as well as the search engines. Beyond my extensive experience in beautifying brands, I understand how the search engines “read” a website. A website is a marriage of graphics and code. Success does not arrive if you have one without the other. Each is essential in it’s own way.
Now that you’ve uncovered the fundamentals of your brand through the storytelling and discovery phase with Melissa, let’s show the world who you are. Tell me your story, and together, we’ll complete the picture.
