Good design can produce great things. We’ve seen it happen. Heck, we make it happen, via:

  • website design & development
  • branding & identity, including logo design, brand guidelines & tagline development
  • print marketing, including business stationery, including business cards, letterhead, envelopes, brochures, postcards & signage
  • messaging, including content development & copywriting services

We click with you. Then together, we make your brand click out in the world.

  • I would recommend Flywheel Creative to anyone looking for a thoughtful, well-designed web site. Karen really listened to what I wanted and how I wanted to set my site apart from other author sites. The final product is everything I hoped it would be—beautiful, functional, and uniquely suited to my work and my personality. More than that, the process of bringing it to life and turning it over to me was collaborative and comfortable. Working with Karen on my site is one of the best investments I’ve made.

  • Over time, I've come to appreciate how lucky I was to find Karen to revamp my website. She is skilled at translating technological terms into language I could understand, and in creating a website which is easy to maintain. Her recognition of the importance of style and a brand identity has garnered the site lots of compliments. Perhaps most importantly, Karen is very responsive when we do have a problem, even years after she did my redesign. I've come to realize how rare this is, and for that I am so very thankful!

  • Karen redesigned my Web site and provided exceptional creative, functional, and marketing solutions that exceeded my expectations. As a former art director, it was a scary prospect to turn the identity of my company over to another designer, but I was impressed to discover I could depend on Karen to manage the project from start to finish. Relieved of the hand-holding other designers have needed in the past, I was able to focus on my core business, As a small business owner, that was truly key for me.

  • Karen is incredibly creative with amazing ideas. I initially contacted her to design a logo … I was so impressed with her work that I have since enlisted her services for the website and business cards. I have other projects in the works that I can hardly wait to turn over to Karen so she can sprinkle her magic fairy dust! I foresee a bright future for our collaborations.
