Believe it or not, the beginning of OpenMicDesigns was back in 2003 when I was just 16 years old. I worked in a camera store and had access to Adobe Photoshop. All I wanted to do was to create an image where I was with my crushes… Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Unfortunately, I don’t have the original anymore, but luckily I still have this gem that was found in an old picture. Two things stand out now as I look back. Thank goodness I don’t have that shag anymore… and secondly, wasn’t I lucky that not only was I with the Olsen Twins in this photo but it was in front of that amazing waterfall. Wow!
Fast forward a few years and I would be doing Youth Ministry in Columbus, OH and looking for graphics and materials that I could use to make my messages ‘hopefully’ more impactful. However, they were super expensive. So I set out to make my own. Some were okay… and some were terrible. But this is truly what sparked OpenMicDesigns.
I created my company back in 2013, because I wanted to help companies and churches that may have small budgets but have big dreams. I love seeing people dream. I hate seeing those dreams squashed because they cannot afford to do high-end marketing or graphics. If I have an opportunity to help make people’s dreams come true – then I am definitely right where I am supposed to be.
So if you need any graphics, designs, marketing materials, websites, or enhance your social media presence or name/company/church in your community – let me help!
