Robyn finds it extremely difficult to find graphic designers with her minuscule budget and doesn’t have the design know-how to develop a professional looking invitation.
“Joy is like no other when it comes to turning around a draft. She gets things done that day or in a couple of days. The greatest thing about Joy was how patient and accommodating she was with all of the edits we provided. We are actually working together on another invitation right now and really look forward to continuing our relationship together.”
“In the short term this project helped us get the word out with a really professional and flashy invitation for our major event. I’m not sure what we would’ve been able to do as far as an invitation if we did not have Joy. We would’ve had to default to something that I could make which is just not professional and we really didn’t have the budget for any sort of graphic design. We really look at the impact as the long-term relationship we are going to have with Joy. I feel comfortable knowing that we have a designer that we can explain the whole philosophy to who actually gets it. It’s really important for us to be able to communicate our ideas and trust that Joy is able to turn those into a deliverable. Now that we’ve established this sort of relationship, we hope that as we move forward we will be able to pay her for different projects.”
"Working on this project and receiving the client’s feedback really helped me improve my skills. I’m so happy that they like my work and that the invite was a success. It caught the audience's attention and increased the amount of people who want to help."
Joy dedicated 25 hours to the project, resulting in $4K saved for Ubuntu Africa.
