Being worried about what people will think about your business when they visit your website should not be what’s keeping you from running full-throttle toward your next-level goals. Honestly, you’ve been honing your craft for so long, you deserve career-level confidence in yourself and what you do.
But, we live in a time where presentation is everything and we know what the inside of everyone’s living room looks like and what their dog’s names are — and sometimes, that kind of exposure makes us wonder if we’re really enough, right?
As a self-taught designer, I’m no stranger to the imposter syndrome struggle. But here’s the thing — we can turn this fear into a strength. My self-taught journey may prompt an internal question — am I less credible because of it, or does it lend my designs a unique and intuitive advantage? I firmly believe it’s the latter.
This is why I’m deeply committed to helping you stand confident in your growing career and business by building brands and websites that truly showcase your reputation online!
When I started Little Hound Creative, I saw so many passionate business owners striving to make their mark in the industry, but undercutting their value with a visual identity that only matched half their worth. These entrepreneurs faced a common challenge: their brands were not effectively communicating their talents and value — which caused them to miss out on opportunities and dream clients.
I know the frustration and urgency felt when you’re in that position — and that’s why I’ve dedicated myself to being more than a designer for my clients. I work to be their partner, confidant, creative strategist, and guide so I create brand identities and websites that don’t just ‘do’ the job, but connect with your dream clients (and bring them in!).
First things (most importantly) first, if you are a proud pup parent, I fully expect to meet your fur baby when we meet on Zoom! Second, I think what you do is amazing — the way you show up for your clients is a testament to your passion for your craft!
But, we live in a world where being good at what you do is one thing — and building a business is another entirely. This is why I’m so passionate about helping my clients transform more than just their brand — through my process they go from business owner to thought leader, industry expert, and visionary.
I want to make space for you to be human, to make tough decisions, to ponder and talk things out, to question and second-guess yourself (and me, that’s fine!), and to discover your own confidence as the leader you are.
Let’s be honest — my designs don’t turn you into a leader, but together we uncover the core of your leadership and package it up into a brand identity and website that showcase it full-force!
MASTER OF RESILIENCE & DIRECTOR OF LAP WARMING
Murphy is a true embodiment of resilience and determination. Having overcome three spinal operations, his fighting spirit is an inspiration to all. Despite his challenges, Murphy never misses a chance to voice his opinions, barking up a storm at the drop of a hat. His love for being pushed around in his doggy stroller is only surpassed by his affection for sitting on my lap at the desk, reminding me to take regular breaks. A lover of food that's consumed at lightning speed, Murphy's presence is a testament to our business's values and even inspired our company name, LHC. Truly my baby, he enjoys the royal treatment, from sleeping in the bed to getting away with almost anything.

Eddie is our resident beacon of joy and big brother figure to Murphy. His ever-present grin lights up the room, and his love for walks is infectious, inspiring us all to step outside and enjoy life's simple pleasures. Unlike Murphy, Eddie is a bit more independent, keeping himself to himself and not being much of a cuddler or a foodie. However, his fluffy presence, affectionately known as 'Corgi glitter,' leaves a warm reminder of his essence all around the house. His calm and contented nature balances the workspace, teaching us to take pleasure in the process and not just the end goal. Eddie's gentle support and companionship create a harmonious and happy environment for everyone.
