Creativity is anything you create that didn't exist before. Any new project is creative. It needs creativity in design to give it a face, and it needs to be seen.
Communication is the key step of sharing your project. What people take away from your communication depends on the design. Is it memorable? Is it accurate? Does it strike a real chord?
Connection is why people care. When you connect with something, you naturally want to engage with it and share it with other people.
"Maya is so much more than a creative, talented and highly skilled web and graphics designer! She is also an artistic life designer and teacher. Working with Maya is an absolute joy and pleasure, and I have learned so much from her. She showed me how to manage many things I felt incapable of doing, and empowered me to keep updating my website myself, as my business grows.
We started by getting clear on my vision for the website, and my business. I was full of ideas, but lacked cohesive clarity. Maya listened intently, and I really felt heard. She took it all in stride, and generously shared ways to address challenges from a design perspective. Many times over she came up with ideas to solve multiple issues with one brilliant solution, astounding me with her genius again and again.
She designed my logo and I love it! I continue to work with her for ongoing projects, and have enthusiastically referred others to her. Beyond her design skills, her communication is fantastic, she is super conscientious about keeping to the budget, timeline and other agreements, and when last minute tweaks and changes are requested, her turnaround times are quick and efficient. The work that she produces is amazingly beautiful! Thank you Maya, you are a design magic-maker extraordinaire!"
