Hello there! I'm Kimberly

& I create effective, beautiful designs from my studio in Michigan's Thumb

Helping Entrepreneurs​

Not only do I provide client-centered graphic design services, I help you understand how to share your endeavors online successfully, from developing your brand, creating effective content, and spreading the word. 

Here at Thoughts & Designs, you’ll also find practical inspiration for making the most of your time in business and in life, while remaining your delightfully spontaneous self.

Pure Michigan

I proudly hail the Great Lake State. You’ll find I’m pretty passionate about all things Michigan, from our gorgeous Great Lakes to the small businesses, artists, and musicians that call Michigan their home.

I want to be of service to the small businesses reviving our towns and cities with my graphic design skills and website design, enhanced with my up-to-date marketing know-how.

Graphic and Web Designer near Flint Michigan

I graduated from Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula along Lake Superior. My degree is in “Industrial Media” which at the time included Photography, Electronic Imaging, and Graphic Design.

Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, my education didn’t end at graduation, and yours doesn’t need to either. 

I continue to learn and grow with courses online through websites like Udemy.com, LinkedInLearning.com, and HubSpot Academy, not to mention Tuesdays Together with the Rising Tide Society.

Coffee Love

I consider coffee an integral part of the design process, as my java addiction helps me bring web design and graphic design projects to life. You’ll find me in small craft coffee shops all over Michigan as much as time allows.

My favorite drink is a Breve Latte with Whip and a little dusting of nutmeg.

When I’m at home, I drink it black or bulletproof. There’s always a French press in my office, usually full of Michigan-roasted coffee.

My favorite roast so far comes from the Keweenaw Coffee Works in Calumet, Michigan. They get bonus points from this graphic designer for their gorgeous package design.

Family

I’m also the proud mom of five adult kids and married to my partner in crime, Martin, for over 27 years.

I try to respect the privacy of my family by not over sharing about that part of my life. That’s why you’ll not see too many family posts.

The Furry Family

I’m the dog mom to Indy, my loveable Keeshond mix. She’s a weird dog, but I love her. Probably should have named her Velcro, though.

The kids brought their own fur babies into our family, making me dog grandma to Jade (a Pointer/Lab/Dane rescue) and kitty grandma to Rory and Rocket (both rescued Maine Coons), and Jack and Jasper (our dumpster kitties).

After the kitties moved out when their mom got married, another daughter brought in another kitty for us to love on – a little tuxedo rescue named Uno.

Faith

A few years ago, Hebrews 10:23-24 developed into a guiding principle in my life, and it’s my favorite Bible verse. I love the Passion Translation’s take on this verse:

“So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps his promises! Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of love.”

Hebrews 10:23-24 TPT

I believe in the promises and reality of God at work in my life because I have experienced His miracles, grace, love, and encouragement in my life.

I want to be a beacon of His love to others through the creativity and compassion He has given me.
