What's the difference between Shapespeare and other options out there?

Freelance Platform

Avoid the Negatives of Hiring from Platforms

Hiring a freelancer from a platform for your branding or design needs may seem like a good idea because it saves time and money, but there are some potential drawbacks to consider. You may never get to speak directly with the person you’re hiring, making it hard to convey your vision and ensure a high-quality result. Some may use stock designs or even steal copyrighted content from the internet, putting you at risk of legal issues.

Design Agency

Professional Quality Without Breaking the Bank

Large design agencies can provide high-quality work, but their prices are often unaffordable for small businesses. At Shapespeare, I offer reasonable pricing without compromising on quality. I believe that every small business should have access to effective branding and design solutions, and I’m committed to making that happen.

Personalized Attention and a Strategic Approach

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. I take the time to get to know your business, industry, and target audience to create design that resonates with your customers. Additionally, I use a strategic approach to ensure that every element of your brand works together to achieve your goals. I am always available to answer your questions and make any necessary adjustments.
