Frankly, dear, I do give a damn.
Allie Nimmons Creative is my way of helping the small business community to grow and flourish. My goal is to provide the type of web design, development, logo/branding, and support services you’d pay an agency thousands for. But within a realistic budget for someone growing a business with limited resources.
I believe that marketing your business well on the Internet should not cost you an arm and a leg. The web is the #1 place people go to find businesses and brands just like yours – why not be where they are!
Allie Nimmons Creative provides you with a project manager, not just a designer. You have the choice to hand off your project to me completely and focus on other things, or you can journey with me and learn more than you thought you could know about online marketing and it’s relationship to design.
Who is Allie anyway?
I am a project manager, first and foremost. Each project – be it a website or logo – has a process that I’ve refined over time. I am dedicated to client satisfaction and quality control. My processes – and maintaining the right level of flexibility within them – is what I spent 50% of my time and energy doing. The other 50% is the design, the marketing knowledge, and the technology that come together to create a product that is perfect for you!
I’ve been a speaker at WordCamp Miami, been featured on iThemes.com, beckymollenkamp.com, and SheAteTheElephant.com and I run my own Facebook group exclusively for web designers looking to grow and hone their craft. But I chase experiences, not accomplishments.
I’ve always been the creative type. My love of design was kicked up a notch when I realized I could design on the largest group canvas in the world – the Internet. Originally, I went to school for theater but like most students my age, realized college wasn’t the right path for me.
I started teaching myself web design out of books and with free online resources. I got good enough to land an intern job at an internet marketing agency. I was promoted to a full-time position with a ton of new responsibilities; I had to wear so many new hats, it was hard to know which way was up. I acted as junior web developer, graphic designer, social media coordinator, web security manager, and SEO blog writer. In short, I’d experienced it all and decided to specialize in web design.
I took a lot from each of these jobs and learned much more than I ever could have out of books and tutorials. When I realized that an agency wasn’t the right place for me, I struck out of my own. It was when I had $20 to my name and a pile of overdue bills that I started designing for friends and family, just to make ends meet. Out of that desperation came the best experiences of my life.
I don’t work with just anyone! If you are the kind of person who…
…already has a strong sense of what services/goods you provide, why you provide them, and to whom you want to provide them.
…is eager to ask questions, do research, and learn about all the ways your website can help your business grow.
…is comfortable delegating, but will also put in the work required to accomplish the results that you want.
…wants to build a lasting and open relationship with the people you work with in order to build a tribe and support system for yourself.
