With Torrey’s help, you’ll be able to figure out how to illuminate your business identity, choose design elements to express that identity, and structure your content to best serve your audience. We’ll discuss real-world examples demonstrating and talk about the benefits and challenges of using well-designed marketing tools to promote and serve your business.

Torrey Douglass

In addition to heading Lemon Fresh Design, Torrey Douglass also serves as art director for Word of Mouth Magazine. Torrey works with small to midsized business owners who are usually spread thin so time is critical and every dollar spent needs to generate results. Torrey’s passionate about what she does; her goal as a designer is to provide a window through which people can appreciate the unique nature of her clients and what they offer.

“If viewers see a design of mine and think, ‘What a great designer’, I’ve failed. If they see one of my designs and think, ‘What a great company/product/organization’, I’ve succeeded.”

-Torrey Douglass
