Using code (and Photoshop) as my paintbrush since 1999.
Your book cover is one of the most important aspects of marketing your book. However much time you spend on getting people to your book sales page, they won’t download a sample or buy the book if the cover isn’t enticing.
From Logo Design to full Brand Identity, I’ve done it all. Designing just your logo or all of the web and print needs (business cards, Social Media icons) is what I’m great at, and would love to help your business off the ground.
While I have extensive WordPress experience, I am comfortable developing in most of the major PHP-based Content Management Systems (Drupal, Joomla) along with Old-School standard HTML/CSS.
My greatest pride is making your online presence really yours, from logo design to full ownership of your site.
What clients say
Amber has shown a commitment to help our site reflect the image and quality we desire. She worked to help us make a great first impression and a lasting impression through our website.
Amber is a wonderful webmaster who always strives for usable web sites with “clean” code. With such a complex site as NBA.com, her expertise has been invaluable to the team. She has demonstrated leadership by guiding others through web design best practices. She works well with her teammates and other Turner teams to ensure project success and planning for future direction. I would definitely recommend her as a great asset to any team.
Awesome experience – Amber was so responsive at all times, available and patient – and created a fantastic product! I’ll not only recommend her to friends, but also continue to work with her myself!
I was very happy with your service and really appreciate you answering all my questions to help me understand my project better. You did an excellent job and I will be looking to you in future projects.
Amber has been a very helpful resource for us as we have had many custom code projects come up with fast timelines. She is very responsive and knowledgeable, and very easy to work with! She has helped us through some complex projects and is able to simplify it all into manageable tasks that get done quickly.
After my first meeting with Amber, I breathed a big sigh of relief. I knew that I had found just what I was looking for: someone who understood marketing and web design better than me. Working with Amber, I was able to let her focus on the design and branding aspects of my project so that I could focus on what mattered most to me – in my case, writing. Amber took my big, messy ideas and condensed them down into a set of simple and evocative images. When we started this process, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted. Now, I can’t imagine any other logo but the one Amber designed. She is a consummate professional who never balked when I asked her to make changes. The turn-around time was quick without sacrificing quality. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
I’m an entertainer with a heavy focus on livestreaming different kinds of content, particularly on the Twitch platform. I needed a unified look and branding for my channel art that emphasized that while I do a lot of different things–live music, gaming, even knitting and crafts–it’s all tied together by *me* and my personality. Speaking in Vector did several full-screen static boards for me to use during my streams, as well as header art for my info sections. The full screen boards in particular help give my broadcasts a unified look–sort of like having opening and ending credits. I know Amber both professionally and personally, and she was a breeze to work with. I feel like she really took time to understand my aesthetic and then interpret that into something that is going to really make a visual impact that reflects me. I would absolutely work with Speaking in Vector in the future and recommend them to others.
I was about to pull my hair out, after working ALL DAY trying to get my theme installed, when I purchased Amber’s WordPress Theme Installation from her Etsy Shop. And it was completed within a couple hours! Had to do some troubleshooting and the shop owner was very helpful and always responded quickly. Two thumbs up.
Amber did a great job helping me out in an emergency and getting my site back up and on track!
Working with Amber was a delight. She was extremely prompt in responding to my questions and communications. She’s very kind and professional, and she accommodated any requests and preferences I had for my logo.
