Hi Lovelies 🙂
So this is me (and my inspiration). I am a self taught brand, blog and graphic designer but a creative since birth. I have always loved design and have finally found a way to mesh my passions with a job that I actually love. Simple and Vanessa came about after embarking on my own blog and online business ventures. I have tried A LOT of ways to make money online, through guest blogging, freelancing, Fiverr and even crowdsourcing. While these opportunities where a blessing, I just was not happy and lets be honest, the money wasn’t great.
So, I started a spiritual blog, Me Muslima, and in doing so I realized I was clueless in the world of blog design. I felt helpless and defeated, until I found an amazing designer who really inspired me, (thanks so much Najmah!) and I started to teach myself the ins and outs of everything branding. I realized that there are so many bloggers and small business owners out there who are just like I was: With little budget and big dreams.
So, Simple and Vanessa is a place where all creatives can find what they need to improve their brand and be successful. I really love getting to know each of my clients and making personal connections with them, so I can figure out what I can do to turn their passion into a life they love. At the very least, I feel satisfied knowing that I can give someone actionable advice that will help them improve their brands and lift their blog and businesses off the ground.
Me, when I am not designing, writing, coaching or learning, I am enjoying espresso and fancy coffee drinks, feeding my inner chocolate monster and bouncing around with my energetic and goofy just over one. I love: Farmers Markets, Organic Food, Herbal Tea, and being a Muslim Woman, wife and mother. I am often overly ambitious and take on tons of projects, because the unorganized chaos gives me a sense of purpose.
I hope you will find a comfortable place here on my pretty lil’ space on the internet. I love to connect and collaborate, so please do find me on social, send me a note through email, I would love to get to know you and help you grow on your creative journey. Just be forewarned: I write really long, and detailed emails, (with lots of :)’s, !!!’s, and fun adjectives), and will probably try and give you tons of advice that you haven’t asked for. But hey, that’s me, and I am ok with that.
So, lets work together. How can I help you? Are you looking to start a blog, do you want to get creative with me and style a stunning brand, or just send a message and tell me what you’re looking for.
