Hello.

I want to be your next rockstar designer.

My name is Bethany and I'm a real person who had the crazy idea to run ads on myself to find employment in Silicon Valley.

.

Have a possible opportunity in the South Bay?

(or have a connection who has a connection who might?)

About Me


My name is Bethany and I'm a designer with 3 years of experience and a degree in UX. I recently moved to the Bay Area from Arizona to start a new adventure!

My goals are adopting a Golden Retriever, experiencing new cultures around the world, and leading the design initiative of a successful, new product. I love working with teams and I'm in my element when I'm ideating, strategizing or otherwise collaborating.

I come from a digital agency background that ran on the philosophy of "you can sell anything if you market it right." It got me thinking that if I can successfully sell products people didn't even know they needed, then surely I could sell myself as a product, the limited-time-offer, the Hire Bethany package.

After all, I only need to find 1 buyer, albeit the right one.

"Wow! I don't think there is enough room to write about Bethany and how incredibly impressed I am with her design work. Her eye and expertise of UI/UX was incredibly impactful to my clients. The suggestions, design work, and copy writing from Bethany increased client's revenues in many different industries."

How I Plan To Bring Value To Your Team


My Designs Will Grow Your Business's Revenue

My marketing agency background has given me experience in designing ads, emails and landing pages that convert. I have a deep understanding of best practices in calls-to-action and presenting information to convince customers to buy.

My Designs Are Effective Because They're Driven By User Research

A target audience of affluent males on the West Coast is very different than an audience of school children in developing countries. I've created design solutions for both.

My designs, whether they are UX/UI designs or advertisements, are 100% human-centered and user research-driven.
