About this pro
Working with Lin was a huge blessing! She is so creative and open to exactly what we were looking for in a logo and branding! As a small family operated business it felt like we were getting full art agency attention. We can't recommend Lin enough. We are definitely going to work with her in the future as more design elements and marketing material needs pop up.Sep 13, 2017
Everything about working with Lin was fantastic. We met in person a few days after I reached out to her, and discussed the project. She asked all the right questions and was very professional. She had early drafts of my illustrations ready very quickly -- I appreciate she showed them to me, to confirm she was on the right track. I had a tight deadline to present at a conference and she was able to meet it which I very much appreciated! The final illustrations were perfect! More than I even expected. I highly recommend her for any design project you have.Oct 2, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Depends on the project! Every project is unique but usually, I'll start by finding out more about the context and intended purpose of the graphics and illustration. The target audience and medium in which the illustration are displayed are vital for developing effective communication. Then I'll send over some sketches and sometimes a "mood board" to help the client get a feel for the style direction I'm going for. Once the sketches are approved, I'll render the illustration in whatever medium or program fits the style. After that, there are one or two tweaks the client will suggest to make the illustration juuuuuust right. ;)
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always been an artsy person— and when I was very young I was privileged enough to get access and instruction in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash. Lots of practice and a supportive network have helped launch my career as a full-time freelance illustrator and designer!
- What types of customers have you worked with?I've worked with lots of small tech startups here in Austin. Other clients include Huffy Bikes, McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin, HP Enterprise, Colgate, Frost Bank, and Whataburger.
