Meet Claire: Owner & Designer
After 5 years of working professionally as an in-house web & graphic designer for a large, international, fashion company and then for a mid-size, advertising agency, I felt worn out, underappreciated, and overlooked. I had no direct contact with the end client and felt like I was just a puppet creating nothing of substance or value. The focus was on consumerism, consumption, and fast turnover. I craved connection, meaningful work, and an end result that helped people. So I quit and created Yes, Please, Palm Trees! Design Studio to start living the professional life I wanted; creating lively, functional designs and illustrations, that connect with my clients and their needs.
Are you just getting started, and already, you feel like you need a vacation? A vacation from feeling over-whelmed with decisions, unable to produce the visuals needed to communicate your idea(s), or unsure of how to visually represent your brand in a way that builds a community of like-minded followers? I am here to help! I would be thrilled to help you create a logo, brand visuals, and/or custom illustrations that not only look good but serve the goals of your business. If you would like to get in touch about a project, collab, or just to say hi! please write me here. I would love to connect with you!
Besides growing Yes, Please, Palm Trees!, I like coconut anything, oscillating fans, dogs, and the sea. Laughing with friends over a tall glass of iced coffee is a day well spent in my book. For more about me, my design processes and services, and a look behind-the-scenes, please check back soon for the launch of the Yes, Please, Palm Trees! Blog.
