As your business grows, you likely also have a growing list of new ideas and design work that needs to be done so you can put those ideas into action. Maybe its designing additional print collateral pieces for your brand's packaging or adding an ecommerce section to your website. It can all start to feel a bit overwhelming as the list grows and eventually those well laid out plans get pushed to the side because implementing those ideas just feels like too tedious of a task alongside everything else you have going on as a business owner. You don't know when your designer will have availability to help you and how long it will take to actually get it all done, much less the cost when you tally it all up, hour by hour stretched over the course of months and back and forth emails.
But maybe it doesn't have to be that way! Maybe instead of letting those new ideas and business ventures overwhelm you, you can simply reach out to your designer, select a day to get it all done, and have all those items (or at least the majority of them) crossed off your to do list in one day so that your business can keep moving forward! And even better, you know exactly how much it will cost. This is exactly what my One Day Design Intensives are all about.
As my project calendar got booked out further and my package prices rose, I was constantly overbooking and overworking myself because I felt too bad saying no or telling people "i'd love to help! in 4 months..." when I knew the design work they were asking for would be such an asset to their business and I didn't want to make them wait. I needed a solution where I could still say yes while respecting the boundaries of my work hours and knowing exactly how long I would need to set aside for these additional projects. So now, every Wednesday of my week is reserved for a One Day Design Intensive.
With One Day Design Intensives, you will receive the same quality of work you would expect in any of my other packages, but it will happen all in one 8 hour day (or 4 hour half day) at a flat rate. Of course I have to be real about what I can accomplish in one day and that will vary by project as well as factors like timely feedback on the day of your intensive, but we cover this in a Strategy call before your intensive so that we can prioritize tasks and make sure we make the most of our day together. It's important to keep in mind that you will be booking me for the day rather than the deliverables, but rest assured that as a seasoned designer, I have a streamlined process to ensure that your day runs smoothly and efficiently so that you can take all those new ideas and start implementing them to grow your business!
Once we have completed your one day design intensive, i'll be available to your for 30 days via email or on Asana so that you can reach out if you find yourself lost, confused or stuck on anything related to the work that we accomplished.
Our Day will be from 8am - 5pm CST with a one hour break for lunch. Half Days will be from 8am-12pm. I will
spend the whole day dedicated to your
project with no distractions.
At the end of the day you will be provided with all final deliverables for the finished items
2-7 Days before your Intensive, we will have a 30 minute
Strategy Call. This call will ensure that we’re on the same
page with expectations, and will help us to make sure
we’re using our time together most effectively.
One you've booked your date, you'll receive a couple of emails from me. One will contain your welcome packet which includes all the important info you need along with a link to schedule your pre-intensive strategy call. The other email will come later and will be a content request/questionnaire for any content I may need from you.
Choose a day up to 30 days from now that works best for you. Ensure that you give yourself time to do any prep work before the intensive. You'll need to be virtually "available" that day for providing feedback as I work through your list of requests. Secure your date with a 50% Deposit
Upon booking, you will be required to make a $500 deposit to reserve your one day design intensive date. The remaining 50% will be due within 24 hours of completion of your one day design intensive.

“Yt was a wonderful experience working with you! You created the most fabulous website and brought to life exactly what I was picturing in my head and did it all in one day.....amazing! Thank you thank you thank you! I am so excited that I have been showing everyone my site and my brother was like holy wow that is so cool! Who did it? Can she do mine? I need to talk to her immediately! ”
“You were sooo incredibly easy to work with. You made feel sooo much more confident about launching my website. You are an angel - thank you so much for everything!”
“We have been blown away by Shelby's talent, kindness and professionalism. We came in with a rough idea of what we wanted and she ran with it making our website more beautiful than we ever could have imagined! Along the way she was so responsive and open to any ideas we had. Every step of the way she was so organized and had an incredible workflow that made things so easy for us. Since we launched people keep complimenting us telling us how high-end and luxurious our new site looks. She also helped us with our business cards, Facebook cover and Instagram icons helping give our brand such a gorgeous finish. If you're on the fence about booking her, take this as your sign to DO IT! You won't regret it!”
“It was great for our new website since we already had some ideas/existing website I liked. It was well worth the money”
“It was great. I love the website and I felt that we had very clear communication. It was also much faster than I had expected. The website is exactly what I was looking for. I loved Shelby's creativity and I'm impressed with the quality of work in such short time. ”
Katie & Alec reached out to me hoping to refresh their website, clean it up, and give it a more elevated, professional look to appeal to their ideal clients. They also wanted their blog to be styled more creatively and include calls to action to encourage visitors to stick around and explore more of their website.
For Katie & Alec's design intensive, I started out by giving their branding a quick refresh to include a new primary logo, monogram mark and tagline mark and I also refreshed their color palette and typography selection. Once this was all set, I updated their Showit website with all the new branding and elevated the styling of it by cleaning it up and creating a better flow to guide visitors to explore more of the site. Check out their website to see if you can find their "magical buttons" ;)
Brooke reached out to me after spending upwards of $20,000 on 3 failed attempts of a custom website. Her photography website needed to not only showcase her beautiful work, but also house tons of content and value such as free resources and even shoppable products. After discovering the Margarita Template. from Tonic Site Shop, she instantly knew that it was what she needed to give her the website she has been dreaming up. She also purchased their Sales Page Add on. The Margarita template was the perfect foundation for her site and she reached out to me to help her customize it to fit her needs exactly. I changed up the styling of a few of the sections and added in some additional features that weren't native to the template to make it exactly what she was looking for. Additionally, I helped integrate her email lead capture forms and added Shopify Buy Buttons for her products.
This was the first website for Eva's new business venture. For this one, I started from scratch instead of working off of a template. She had a simple logo design in mind and so I first started with a creative direction to establish the foundation of her branding and set the tone for what the website would look like. She wanted something that felt artistic and inclusive and inviting. She specializes in therapy and didn't want the site to feel like a traditional/medical looking site that was boring. She wanted her clients to really connect with it and feel comfortable. She also wanted a blog where she could share free resources and further establish her position as an expert in the therapy space.
Shylah purchased the XX Roses template from Third Story Apartment. and actually did quite a bit of work customizing it herself. When she reached out to me, she wanted help finishing up the site and ensuring that it reflected her personality and brand. She also wanted assistance with setting up a more detailed menu that included multiple sub menus, ensuring all the blog connections were working properly, and implementing a Shop the Looks feature with her Rewardstyle account so that visitors could easily shop her commissionable links.
I'd previously worked with Michelle on a website for her former business, Throw the Confetti Events . Upon starting a new business, she wanted her new website to have a similar feel to the previous one because she really loved it. Her new branding was quite different though, so a One Day Design Intensive was the perfect solution to create her new website with a similar feel to the old one but styled to align with her new branding for this new business venture.
Jordan purchased the Coco Captain template from Third Story Apartment. and then reached out to me for help with customizing it to her style and ensuring that all of the blog connections were set up properly. I added in some additional features such as fun animations, palm shadows, a quiz on the about page, and shoppable content from her RewardStyle account so that visitors could easily shop her commissionable links.
