Web & Graphic Design Highlights:

DESIGN + MARKETING HISTORY

Hello! My name is Emily Rae Andres.

I’m a Freelance Graphic/Website Designer & Marketing Specialist in Wilmington, NC 28401 with a unique approach and over 12 years of experience working with clients full-time and part-time. I have over 14 years of experience in Adobe Creative Suites programs like Dreamweaver, XD, Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom & InDesign. I have experience designing and maintained websites on almost every platform you can think of: WordPress, Wix, Squarespace, Etsy sites, GoDaddy sites, Shopify and more. I’ve designed everything from logo packages to full blown websites with online stores to email blasts and social media graphics and insights leading to an increase in qualified leads on various digital promotions and campaigns.

I have some recent experience collaborating with a team through Figma and increasing interaction digitally using Marketo Engage, Salesforce insights and other marketing tools as well. My success rate for social media and email marketing promotions for my most recent full-time employer showed a 200% increase in direct messages and an average of 15-20 extra phone calls per day asking about products on social media. These promotions accounted for over a 25% increase in overall annual sales in-store for the entire year of 2021, directly traced to social media promotions. This sales rate was maintained throughout the entire two years I was their Social Media Manager with a few large seasonal spikes, increasing sales in the store to be more than 12% higher in total sales than it was even in 2021.

Why do design and marketing together?

I learn by doing and am always looking to grow more in my field and learn more about marketing, finding new ways to innovate and increase qualified leads and engagement. I like to view the project from every angle, so starting as a graphic designer made me realize that most businesses need us to be a lot more. I learned photography from a professional photographer and I have years of videography experience as the Social Media Manager for several local retail businesses. I have designed their websites, their social media and email marketing promotions, created entire blogs all with my own photos and videos.

I have rebranded most of the businesses I have worked for as well. I never stop learning and striving for higher and more specific goals because I truly love doing it. So, do not hesitate to ask questions! Practice makes perfect and I am very detail oriented, hard working, on-time with deadlines and professional. I know how to listen for key words when speaking with clients, ask the right questions and I really do want to help. We can all learn from each other and grow in every area together, working to create superior products that serve our clients, customers and patients to the best of our ability!

I always make sure to provide first class design work so every client is guaranteed:

• High quality graphics • Quick response and fast delivery • Full professional support • Creative & Professional • 100% satisfaction • 300 DPI resolution print ready files • More responsive website • More engaging photos & graphics • Optimized SEO (included in web maintenance packages) • Quality web maintenance • Priority customer service

Every business I work for I make sure their social media marketing, branding, print marketing, as well as other marketing platforms and websites are modern, relevant and increasingly interactive and intriguing for customers with our ever-changing society. I would love to discuss your specific design goals and needs via email or feel free to fill out the contact form below or on the ‘Contact’ page.

Looking forward to working with you!
