Sometimes, you just don’t have the budget to pay a designer to make a flyer for your event, or a logo for your side-project. I have over 10 years of experience using the Big Three (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign), and extensive knowledge/experience in naming, concept development and marketing/positioning for small businesses.


Design & Marketing Coaching

Hi! My name is Pomona Lake.
I’m a full-time freelance graphic designer (and teacher) who loves giving people the tools to make their own dreams come true.

Sometimes, you just don’t have the budget to pay a designer to make a flyer for your event, or a logo for your side-project. I have over 10 years of experience using the Big Three (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign), and extensive knowledge/experience in naming, concept development and marketing/positioning for small businesses. I love sharing my knowledge (including all the keyboard shortcuts) with people who are making stuff happen so they can reach more people. Send me an email or look at some of the specific options below to get started. Let’s make it happen!

photoshop

basic layout, retouching, photo manipulation

Maybe you know your way around photoshop, but want a pro to show you the fastest and easiest way to do something. Or maybe you have no idea how to use it, and would like to, but don’t know where to start.

I can take you from nothing to savvy, or from competent to superstar in an hour or two.

digital illustration

vector-based illustration, digital painting

Are you an experienced artist wanting to take the leap from traditional art mediums to digital illustration, but afraid of the learning curve?

I can help you integrate digital tools (such as Photoshop and Illustrator) into your arsenal while showing you tricks to keep the vivacity of illustration style in digital spaces – as well as how to digitally mimic the look of traditional mediums, like cut paper or screenprints.

layout for print + web

social media graphics, flyer design, marketing basics

Are you a small business owner or event organizer who doesn’t have the budget for a designer to do everything for you? Do you enjoy creating your own marketing materials but don’t have the chops (yet)?

I can get out off the ground and making your own graphics in no time at all, using pro tools such as Photoshop and InDesign, or user-friendly free alternatives such as Canva.
