other designers are able to stand out and consistently book dreamy, high-ticket clients?

You’re starting to feel like there’s this special something - this magic, if you will - that separates the good from the great.

But you can’t figure out how to create that magic for yourself. And while you’d love to create designs that stop people in their tracks and entice them in for more- you have this nagging feeling that maybe you just don’t have anything special to bring to the table.

So you copy (ahem, ‘get inspiration from’) other designers.

You download all the free guides on “How to Grow a Business”.

You sink into a cycle of comparison because that one designer on Instagram is so much “better” than you.

And you hope that maybe...someday...you’ll be able to create work that is actually an extension of your heart (instead of churning out Pinterest look-alike designs that pay pennies and secretly suck the life out of you).




have you ever wondered how...

NOW IS YOUR TIME.

You can build the design business of your dreams, create work that you love, and make more money than you think is possible (trust me, if they can do this, so can you).

but the truth is,

The best part? It’s not about luck.

*Since implementing these strategies I have multiple “pinch me” moments per month. Six-figures? Check. Inquiries that aren’t even considering other designers? Check. I look at the business I’ve created and think, “Wait, how did I get here? How is this possible?” Truthfully- it shouldn’t be. At least not for a self-taught designer and business owner wannabe like me who literally had no idea where to even begin. But that’s the power of what I’m sharing in Drop Dead Designer.

And these strategies haven't just worked for me. I've been able to help hundreds of other Drop Dead Designers experience their own wild success stories.




Building a captivating, lucrative design business simply requires strategy. Simple but powerful strategy that, when applied, makes things happen so quickly that it feels like magic.*

"I'm now doing $20k+ months in my business."

- Jo, Drop Dead Designer

“The coaching + mentorship inside Drop Dead Designer has been LIFE-CHANGING.”

- ERYNN, DROP DEAD DESIGNER

After joining Drop Dead Designer, I booked my first 5-figure client. As a self-taught designer still practicing my skills, DDD gave me so many opportunities to create work & discover who I am as a designer.

Before Drop Dead Designer, I couldn't see myself getting to a consistent level of income. I'm now doing $20k months - and in some cases, even more. This is an amazing investment. And I don't say that lightly. I've done a lot of other coaching programs and DDD is the one that made the difference.

Burnt out, frustrated at the lack of growth in your design business...

Feeling like you’ll never “get there”, and tired of creating work you don’t love (for pennies, at that)...




if you're...

It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, the design business of your dreams is closer than you think.

  • Eliminate your competition altogether (because once you’ve mastered the art of differentiation? People will have no choice but to hire you).
  • Unearth your unique MAGIC. That one-of-a-kind, special something that’ll take you from just like the rest of ‘em to sought after and booked-out.

  • Create a top-notch portfolio & client process that looks and feels like you have years of experience (even if you don’t).


as a drop dead designer, you'll...

  • Substantially increase your bottom line and confidently charge more than you ever thought possible (six-figures is easily achievable once you have the right foundation).



  • Implement passive income streams that allow you to work less while making more.



  • Become the type of designer that OTHER designers aspire to be.




  • And finally start creating work that doesn’t just pay the bills- but is actually aligned with the art you set out to create in the first place.




SOUND TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE? I LOVE A GOOD DOSE OF SKEPTICISM, BUT KEEP READING…

Inside Drop Dead Designer, you'll learn exactly how to harness your Designer Magic, craft a client process they can’t stop talking about, implement lucrative passive income streams, and ultimately create a design business that entices, enthralls, and affords you the freedom and lifestyle you want. As a Drop Dead Designer, you'll have access to...

the money

Module Two

Many of us fell in love with design because it was fun. But now you are a business owner and that means you need to make money (and if I have it my way, you’ll be on your way to making LOTS of it by the end of this week). So many designers are barely scraping by, struggling to communicate their value, and working around the clock just to make ends meet. Let’s choose a different path.

Product sales tactics and how to sell your products EVEN if you don’t have a big audience.



the sell

Module Five

Last but not least, we’re tackling Marketing 101. This isn’t just your basic “hashtag your Instagram posts” and “Get your work on Pinterest” spiel. Instead, I’m sharing comprehensive methods for finding clients, engaging your audience, building a following, and leveraging social media to actually result in profits (instead of just an ego boost).

Where to find clients who can’t wait to work with you (and don’t even consider your competitors as viable options).

How to enthrall your audience and show off your designer magic across all social media platforms.

NEW!

And hello there! I'm Ariel.

self-taught, multi-six-figure designer & business owner on a mission to help graphic designers stand out & make more money.

After making the decision to live life on my own terms, I quit my stable job as an admin assistant at an accounting firm to pursue a career in freelance graphic design.

After almost two years of struggling to book clients, make consistent money & stand out in the industry, I found myself burnt out and ready to give up.

Like with any good story, there was a turning point in my business and mine came when I decided to start doing things differently than what I saw other "successful" designers doing. Which led me to making a few simple shifts in my business that changed everything.

Almost instantly, the tables turned. Dream clients started seeking me out, my product sales went through the roof, and I finally felt like I had a unique perspective to offer the design industry. Today, I’m so excited to show you you how to experience a wild success story all your own.








Booking just one client would pay for your enrollment, and then some.
