As some of you may have seen, I am moving.
I want to say thank you for an amazing first year! I have loved working with clients, meeting new people, and learning about different organizations. On November 1, 2013, I opened my doors downtown Ames. During that time I have explored the idea of working for myself and pushed my creativity. My business has become more organized and productive. So much so, that I don’t think I’ve had too many nights off from design! The risk I took by renting an office and making my design business official has worked out for the best. I couldn’t be happier with how far I have come with k.ray design.
Leaving my office space downtown is not going to be an easy thing. Ames has been my home for almost 10 years. I love my space. I love that I can have a space. And seriously, where am I going to put all my paper samples, design books, and pinball?!
But, even though I might tear up a little bit and quite possibly will leave claw marks on the doorway as I get pulled out, I know this is the right thing to do. I have dreamed of living in a larger city for quite sometime and what better time than now? The new job will be more focused on web design – which is something I want to learn more about. I love print materials and branding, but really want to expand my web design skills. Plus, I can still do all those fun things with k.ray design. The beauty of my work is that it can be done from anywhere!
What does this mean for k.ray design?
It means all of my clients will benefit from this change. I will learn more things. I will be inspired by completely different surroundings. Everything that comes with this move will be reflected in my design. If we have started a project together, or have talked about a project’s timeline, no worries! Everything will still remain on schedule. I made a promise to my clients and I will make sure I hold up my end of the bargin. I will still be in Ames until October 12, so if you would like to meet, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Once again, thank you for all of your support! I will be accepting new projects beginning November 1, 2014.
Watch out, Kansas City! Here I come!
