Hi! I'm Amanda, and my company is called Dorado Creative.

I'm a freelance Graphic Designer and Marketing Consultant based in Erie, PA. There are a lot of designers out there doing great work, but I personally specialize in affordable, beautiful solutions that small businesses and non-profits need.

My team and I are big believers in empowering people to have control over their content - both print and online. Nothing is more frustrating to a growing organization than looking for a file/logo/website/original business card order, etc. and having no idea where it came from or who has that original information. I would love to work with you to find the right tools for your group, and will work with you personally each step of the way until that control (and the right files!) are safely in your hands.

Some of the things I can help you with include:

  • Designing effective, affordable direct mail, annual reports, flyers, brochures, business cards, signage, etc. that can be created in-house or commercially
  • Engineering and creating unique items with handmade touches for events, weddings, or fundraisers
  • Training your staff to use basic design tools and to utilize your brand & marketing effectively
  • Reconsidering or creating your organization's logo and corporate identity projects
  • Setting up a customized Facebook Page (and other social media) and creating beautiful content
  • Organizing your e-mail contact list (or putting a system into place) and sending out e-mail newsletters
  • Re-vamping that old website and creating beautiful banners and imagery
  • Planning events that work for your organizations, and then handling advertising, press releases, and marketing
  • Working with you and your staff personally to ensure you have control over your image and marketing tools
  • Connecting you with my personal trusted network of photographers, videographers, web designers, copywriters, translators, transcriptionists, and lots of others so that we get the job done right!

There are always new problems to solve and solutions that will be unique to your business, and I'm here to help. With over thirteen years of experience in graphic design, administrative work, and a background in art education, I love a creative challenge.

If you're interested in working with me, give me a call at (814) 580-6757 or send me an e-mail at doradocreative@gmail.com. We can arrange to meet, Skype, or FaceTime for a consultation.

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!
