Company description
Bolster Design is a boutique graphic design studio specializing in small business branding and graphic design services. I use strategy, design and experience to create meaningful, distinctive and effective design solutions for small business owners who want a professional image.

As a freelance designer, I work with agencies, marketing companies as well as my own clients. I specialize in art direction, identity design, and corporate communications.
Why am I an RGD?
The graphic design industry is changing rapidly. RGD works on behalf of designers to improve professional standards and best practices, thus securing the future of the industry for all of us. I am proud to be a part of this forward-thinking organization, and willingly contribute to this supportive community of inspiring, talented professionals.
Why am I a designer?
Good design opens up the world to make it accessible to everyone, regardless of ability, background, or region. As a designer, I am constantly drawing on my empathy and sitting in other’s shoes to see how they experience the world. It is humbling and inspiring, and I am always learning and growing. Who wouldn’t love a career like this?
Why should you hire me?
I am a multidisciplinary graphic designer with an eye for detail and innovation. I have over 15+ years experience working for reputable agencies large and small, specializing in brand identity, promotional marketing and corporate communications. My clean and simple style stems from my belief that the simplest solutions are often the best. I am a graduate of Sheridan College’s Graphic Design Program and have received awards for my work. I love learning new things and taking on new projects.
