Hey there, fellow designer.

Imagine a world where your client process actually went how it was *supposed* to go… every time.

… where you no longer had dozens of files named “finalfinalFINAL3.ai” on your computer
… where client revisions was the EXCEPTION and not the RULE
… where you had a simple + streamlined way to continue working with clients in a way that was fun and profitable for you
… where your business was truly friction free from start to finish during every project

I know, this probably sounds too good to be true, if not literally impossible.

But what if I told you I found a way to make that your reality? (95% of the time, anyway. 😉)

There are A LOT of things about a designer’s client process that become the bane of their existence. Maybe you’ve experienced one of them? Something like…

  • Clients who are never happy, even though you’ve moved heaven and earth to meet the brief. (While potentially breaking a few of your own boundaries along the way…)
  • Clients who try to get you to do work outside of the agreed scope. The best reason? “It will only take you a few minutes.”
  • Clients who don’t provide you with useful feedback, so you’re left wondering what to do next. Do you go back and ask them to explain? Do you assume you know what they meant? Do you just trust your skills? Do you throw your computer out the window and run off to the circus?
  • Clients who won’t trust your design expertise—even though they chose to hire you!
  • Clients who hire you once and then go on to work with another designer later. ☹️ (So frustrating, especially if you see the beautiful brand you designed being used incorrectly!)

If I had to guess, you probably didn’t start your own design business for these constant headaches.

You might be thinking, “There HAS to be another way… but what could that even be?”

That’s where Spruce Your Studio comes in: my signature in-depth course + coaching program that gives you unfiltered access into my red-carpet client process and best design short-cuts so you can create an end-to-end experience that gets you loved, shared, and hired by your ideal clients again and again. And again.

I created Spruce Your Studio because you’re not the only designer craving a friction-free client process that ELIMINATES all of these issues.

And when I say eliminate, I mean it. Check out what some of my students have experienced after implementing their own elevated design + client process.

Module 2

Your Red-Carpet Client + Design Experience

Let’s take a closer look… After this module, you’ll know:

  • My complete end-to-end client process, so you can start turning your inquiries into your most loyal brand ambassadors
  • How to guarantee a stellar client onboarding experience, including our script for consultation calls to get clients on board with our Zero-Revision method (and weed out the red-flag clients, in a nice way, of course!)

  • How to get out of common sticky client situations, so you never feel tongue-tied on how to respond when a client goes out of scope, doesn’t like your designs, or has less-than-ideal feedback (these situations won’t be common any more once you’ve nailed this module!)

Module 3

Growing Your Premium Design Studio

Let’s take a closer look…

This is the step beyond the red-carpet client experience and focuses on scaling if that’s something you’d like to do now or in the future. It’s not as scary as it may seem, and outsourcing to other people isn’t the only option! After this module, you’ll know:

  • How to (sanely) manage multiple projects so you aren’t confined to one project at a time, or the limited income that comes with it…
  • How to successfully incorporate a day rate service into your studio so that you’ve got easy and reliable repeat client services. Goodbye complex quotes, timelines, and pricing!
  • My secrets to trimming down your marketing efforts by landing repeat clients (it’s money on autopilot and takes so much stress out of running a business!)
  • How we balance day rates with our core service, and our unique retainer models (our students have earned $100k/year using these methods alone!)
  • My step-by-step process to hiring + managing a team, so you can scale your business with ease. It’s your ticket to working less, while growing your income!
  • The scoop on taxes + legal for your new business model, so once you’ve hired your first all-star, you can rest assured knowing Uncle Sam is a-ok with it.
  • My framework for structuring your team — this is the exact method I use in my own business to guarantee happy designers and clients that keep coming back for more… because we’ve got the team model nailed to a T!

Spruce Your Studio

is a glass-slipper fit if you’re just starting up your design business OR you’ve been at the game for a few years

  • If you’re in a 9–5, have been freelancing for a hot second (hey, coffee shop designing on weekends is where many of us start!), and just *know* that by streamlining and tightening your process you’d be able to play at a much higher level and attract the clients you need to go full-time, SYS is for you.
  • If you’ve started your design studio (getting business cards totally counts) but the client process has you tied in knots and you’re sick of spending the time you should be designing snooping on others’ sites to figure out their process, SYS is for you.
  • If you’re a seasoned designer used to dealing with clients and managing projects but just KNOW you need to step into more of a leader role when it comes to the way you work, SYS is for you.
  • If you’re already running a successful branding or web design studio and working with awesome clients but want to streamline your systems so you can take more time out for family or, you know, breathing, without taking a drop in income, SYS is for you.
  • If you adore serving your clients, but feel burnt out from your shoot-from-the-hip systems and would love to be literally handed a proven blueprint so you could focus on your strength — actually designing! — SYS is for you.
  • If you want to learn the ins and outs of the fast-becoming-famous Spruce Rd. Zero-Revision One-Logo-Solution, because you’re SO over providing a ton of options and then seeing them pick the one you knew they’d pick (secret? I used to do that, too!), SYS is for you.

What have others asked before joining Spruce Your Studio?

“The SYS course has been instrumental in my business and moving me forward. I took it one year ago, and I cannot stop thinking about how beneficial it was. My business has skyrocketed — I made more money than I ever have since taking this course!”

Megan Powell

“Before SYS, my client process wasn’t terrible but a little clunky. Now, my revisions process during my client experience has gotten so much more streamlined. Going through SYS, seeing Jamie’s process, getting coached by her has changed how I serve my clients even better. This investment is worth every penny, and every second of your time!”

Danbee, Oori Studio

“The course itself was worth every dollar and the templates were worth even MORE than that! Since taking SWD, my client process has been visually upleveled. I now understand how to present my work in a way that really shows the value to my clients. My clients are super happy with the process, and I’ve been able to book lots of clients!”

Brea, Style Storyteller
