It's nice to meet you!
My name is Beth Schrider, and I'm the owner and designer behind Sweet Alpine studio. Helping small businesses grow through effective graphic design and marketing is my passion. Doing so while being able to work remotely is my dream!
My goal is to make quality and timely graphic design affordable and attainable for small business owners worldwide.
There are so many small business owners out there still unsure of the value of a clean, user-friendly website that explains their business value. Many business owners think they can't afford a new website because they've only been quoted a high price. Others understandably can't afford to have an on-call web-guy for every little change once the website is live.
Worst of all there are businesses who hired a graphic design company for branding, but were left disappointed after the process took months, cost a huge amount of money, and left them drained. That's not the way that design should be. Design should be affordable, timely, and at its core exciting!
They say running your own business is a full-time job
If you're a small business owner - you know exactly what that means. There's always a never-ending to-do list of tasks and goals and your focus is constantly pulled between customer service, sales, development, marketing, and the list goes on!
Let Sweet Alpine take some of the headache away by providing you with a website that is (dare I say) fun to edit and a brand that intrigues potential customers to learn more about what you do. I promise to be responsive, and provide upfront / affordable packages, and get your business branded / online in 1-2 weeks. I'm here because I'm passionate about small businesses and how I can help you grow in an online world.
A side-hustle turned dream career
What started as a side-hustle in 2015, turned into finding my passion; what makes me truly happy in life: using design to help others grow their side projects into the businesses of their dreams.
Two years ago, I started a doing freelance graphic design after I'd come home from my 9-5 as a marketing manager. What I didn't realize at the time was that that was the beginning for me.
In the beginning I would come home after a long day at the office, and spend my entire evening designing for myself or for friends for free. I would make up work for myself - trying to get more and more practice with all the Adobe apps I could get my hands on.
Well what I didn't realize during those first few months was that even though I didn't believe in myself at the time, my amazing friends and family did. While I (being the introvert that I am) just kept designing the days away, my friends were promoting me to people they knew who could use a graphic designer.
So if you are like me and are just starting out in the career of your dreams, don't spend your days doubting yourself. Spend your days doing what you love and the rest will follow. You just need to take steps toward the life you want and work hard. But most importantly: do something you love.
I finally feel like I have my time back - I feel free and I am happy every day because I am pursuing my dream. And I'm finding more and more time to travel, both locally and internationally. I want you to to do what you love too. I believe I can help you by creating the materials you need to give your business a boost. ♥ Beth
