“I didn’t know entirely what to expect when I began working with Mattie other than the fact that her work is incredible and always one step ahead of the creative curve. Through working with her, I learned that Mattie’s work is more than a beautiful logo. She listened, encouraged, and amazingly managed to take all of my ideas and goals (which were all over the place) and develop a brand that encompassed everything I do. I knew she would be incredible but I was astounded by the product of our work together. I felt like someone understood what was in my brain and heart in a way that no one ever had before. And even better, she helped me find a way to communicate that more boldly and clearly to my customers and community. Creative work can be lonely and defeating; you can often feel like you have nothing to give in a saturated world. Having Mattie pour her heart and soul into my little business showed me how much she believed in me and my talents. I get teary eyed thinking about how much that means to me and how much I need that support as a creative business owner. All that to say, you’ll get more than an amazing logo from Mattie. You’ll get a cheerleader, sounding board and a friend who holds up a mirror to you to help you see a clear path to your dreams.”

“Hiring Mattie was literally one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my business. Not only did she design a killer site and brand for me, but she helped me attract only the clients I wanted—and more of them. My business is in a better place than it’s ever been and people are constantly ooh-ing and aah-ing over my site. I’m certain that clients feel more confident hiring me now after Mattie has worked her magic on my business!”

“Every single time I get to upload my new logo to a gallery, I do a happy dance!! I know it’s “just a brand” to some people, but for the first time I really am feeling what it’s like to know my brand not only represents me, but is me. I used to avoid sharing my website because I didn’t feel it was really me and I think part of the reason I didn’t blog often was because I didn’t want to put work into a site that I wasn’t in love with. Mattie changed ALL of that!

“Mattie patiently and happily walked me through the entire branding process and the end result is a brand/website that truly reflects my business’s vision and personality. She helped turn a process that I dreaded into one that I really enjoyed! I couldn’t be happier with the brand that she created and the confidence she instilled in me as a small business owner.”

“I approached Mattie about helping me brand my new business and from the very beginning she was so supportive, encouraging and genuinely excited to help me bring my business to life.
Through the whole process, Mattie was patient and gracious as I asked a million questions and made a million tweaks and suggestions. Mattie’s skill and professionalism are out of this world and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her!”
Maggie Heintzman – Jettison Style
I’m amazed at Mattie’s ability to give my brand a visual overhaul that finally reflects what I’ve wanted since my first website. She was able to put my aesthetic into colors, words and images in a way that I couldn’t imagine even though I had tried myself so many times. Mattie was so patient with my indecisive nature in settling on a
particular font or layout and provided options for me at every point. And her encouragement and excitement throughout the process made me feel like I was her only client!
I wholeheartedly recommend Green Tie Studio for people who are forming their brand’s visual identity for the first time, but also for those who need help refining and fine tuning it a few years down the road. I am so happy with the finished product and could not have asked for a better experience!

“It was so wonderful to work with Mattie. It’s great to work with a designer who gets as exited about your project as you do. Her information gathering process was so thorough and I knew she would be able to get a real sense of what I wanted – even before I did. She was so flexible and accommodating and so open to whatever ideas I
brought to the table!”

“My favorite part of the re-branding experience with Mattie was her ability to bring the concepts of my brand to life. When I had trouble communicating my ideas to her, she helped me to articulate them clearly.
In addition to her talent, she is incredibly kind and personable, which made the experience exciting and fun! Seeing an e-mail from Mattie was the highlight of my day because I knew I was about to be “wow’d” by her designs.
I would recommend Mattie to any creative who is serious about taking their work and their business to the next level. The amount of positive feedback I’ve already received has been overwhelming and I am so, so pleased with the result!

“Working with Mattie on my company’s branding was the single greatest investment I have made into my business so far. Finding a designer who not only draws out the questions you need to be asking yourself about your brand, but also hears your heart and can translate those details into an authentic visual compass is a treasure of which Mattie is supreme. Aside from being endlessly talented, Mattie handled every request and feedback conversation with the utmost professionalism. From providing a clear project timeline to walking me through each step of the process with clarity, I never worried that we wouldn’t achieve the final product in a timely manner. The compliments I receive on my branding are all a testament to her guidance and gift for design!”
