Design, branding, and strategy—it’s all in a day’s work.

Most of the time, working with an agency takes a looooong time.

Sometimes you have to wait for months before even getting started—and when you do, the project isn’t finished for 6-12-weeks.

Deadlines come, and deadlines go.

And the email back-and-forth is frustrating (and never ending).

Your design project (you know, the one you needed done yesterday?) seems to drag on long after you’ve shifted your attention to other priorities.

Part of the problem—and this is some insider, behind-the-music sh*t—is that we creatives tend to overbook our schedules with multiple, competing projects, (because money).

And as any service provider will attest, competing priorities is NOT what creatives need to buckle down and make the magic happen.

We need to focus. To get in “the flow.”

And we need you (the client) to be available and involved, willing and able to provide productive feedback.

Which doesn’t happen when projects languish, or when you have zero idea what your freelancer is up to at any given moment (or if they’re even a real person).

After a decade of navigating these ups and downs, our founder, Rita Suzanne, decided she was done with all that.

She wanted to get immediate results (just like you do!), and was growing increasingly frustrated with the limitations of the status quo.

So she created Designed With Strategy—a whole new approach to planning and executing great design.

At DWS, we work in days—not weeks. Here’s why:

The Dedicated Day format gives us the freedom and flexibility to address ALL your needs, in order of priority.
It’s rare for a business to need just one thing. Maybe you need a new website—but you could also use a new email template, or a fresh batch of social media designs, or a new solution for your cluttered, un-user-friendly membership site or course platform. Our flat day-rate covers it all.

The work gets done when you need it done, not months from now.
“Days not weeks” means less wait time to get on our schedule. It’s about as close as you can get to “real-time” design services (as in, the work starts when you actually need it).

No competing priorities.
On your scheduled day, you’ll be our one and only focus. That’s all our attention, strategy skills, and design prowess, laser-focused on you and you alone. Can you handle it?

You’ll be able to plan for and prepare for your Dedicated Day, so we can eliminate all that annoying back-and-forth.
Because it’s just one day, you can clear your schedule to be available for regular check-ins and questions throughout the day. And it won’t derail you from your other pressing responsibilities, the way an undefined Big Project would.

Deadlines (especially the missed kind) are a thing of the past.
We never miss a deadline, because we’ll work with you to create a reasonable workload for the time allotted. And at the end of the day, it’s finished! It really couldn’t be simpler.

No complicated fee structures or convoluted project timelines.
We charge a flat per diem rate, period. And because we’ve got over a decade of design experience, we know exactly how much we can get done during that time. If you have more work than we can complete in a day, we’ll schedule more days!

What Others Say

I hired Rita to help me complete a website project that was super late and in shambles. I was panicked, exhausted and super behind my 2019 timeline and Rita came in and helped ease all my anxiety. Rita was clear, concise, efficient and on time. She delivers beautiful work on time with professionalism and care. Her technical knowledge helped me navigate the challenges we were previously facing with the functionality of the site and she provided easy solutions. I recommend Rita to everyone!

We hired Rita to help us redesign a membership portal and transfer clients from an old portal to the new portal. The work Rita did for us was irreplaceable. She not only did what we needed her to do, she always went a step above to give us better ideas and suggestions. She went out of her way to help me when I had questions or when we needed to make edits last minute. I knew that if something came up, she would know how to help us. I learned so much from working with Rita. She will do the job you ask her to do, but she also teaches you the process as well. I have recommended her to all of my clients and can’t wait to work with her again. I have nothing but amazing things to say.

The greatest thing about Rita is that she’s three pros in one. A designer who is technically savvy and understands strategy. She prioritizes results and will give it to you straight. So, if you want someone to tell you what you want to hear, call your mom. If you want someone to set you up for success, call Rita.
