I’m Cynthia Colli, but please, call me Cyn (It sounds like ‘sin’, but I’m not that bad, promise).
In vague buzzword speak, I’m a digital creative. In real terms (which I much rather!) I design websites and graphics for online use or for print. I also write – I just love writing. The copy on your website or brochure, your blogs or your social media posts – it doesn’t matter, I get a lot of joy from crafting words in a warm, easygoing tone.
I studied design years before Facebook was born, and just after the Spice Girls entered the world stage. Since then, and until 2016, I worked in a variety of industries in roles that combined my love of design and my management skills. My work in construction, the arts, environment, health, film, services and retail have been pivotal in my understanding of the small businesses and sole traders I work for now.
I’m a Sydneysider who loves dogs, gardening, the beach and adventuring to the wilderness or the dance floor. When I’m not working away at my computer I’m creating waves in the eco world, namely in my quest to eliminate marine plastic debris. I’ve co-founded an eco movement and have a solid decade of experience in volunteering and working in wildlife conservation and environmental causes.
If you’re interested in integrating more eco-awareness or social impact into your business, ask me how. I’d be happy to chat, even if you don’t need my services.
I’m Your Creative Concierge
Simply put, I help busy people with creative ‘stuff’ that is critical to their business success. None of us are meant to be great at everything, all the time. You have your expertise – I complement you by letting the world know what you’ve got to offer.
I love telling your story through words and visuals. I’m an Australian local who loves helping fellow business owners chip away at the big mountain of communications, marketing and social media. It’s totally my bag.
Why choose me?
As you scour the internet for suitable creatives and quotes, please remember that the ‘graphic designer/web designer/writer’ combo is not common. Most designers aren’t writers, and most writers aren’t designers. Not many designers create both web and graphic designs.
I have the ability to provide you with a complete website or designed documents – graphics, photography, web development and copy – the lot. I really prefer creating the complete package because I view your business as a living, unique whole – everything I create for your business will have the same tone, look and feel.
If you’re keen to drop off a project to one person and have it created and managed in one well-strategised, cohesive swoop, leave it with me.
And if I may add – I’m nice to work with! I’m a friendly and helpful person. I’m knowledgable and eternally curious. I love learning how you and your business work, and where I can add the most value. Importantly too – I’m not precious or sensitive to your honest feedback. I plan on being a mate of yours and a long-term helping hand. I’ll be here for you, well after the project is complete. Let’s do this together – it’ll be fun!
