Hello, thanks for visiting my website! I’m Connie Bablitz, a graphic designer with 6 years professional experience in both print and web design. I specialize in providing affordable, customized design services for small businesses.
Education and Experience
While I have been designing and creating as long as I can remember, my professional career in graphic design started in 2011 when I took the leap and went back to college for the second time. I obtained my diploma in Digital Media Production from Guru Digital Arts College (now Edmonton Digital Arts College), and received my first paying design job before graduation – that was the catalyst that lead me into creating my design company, Conntrast Creative Media. Now, 6 years later, it feels like the right time to transition to working under my own name – a move that suits the personal approach I like to take with my clients.
Working With Me
I work remotely from my home office in rural Lac Ste. Anne County, Alberta. Since I’m kind of “in the middle of nowhere”, a lot of my client interaction takes place through email and over the phone. For those that prefer face-to-face, my home office will soon be open for business and I also don’t mind travelling to meet up with you. I’m in Barrhead a couple of times a week, and also only about an hour away from both Edmonton and Whitecourt. I can be reached by email anytime [firstname.lastname@example.org] or by phone/text [780-674-0965].
The Personal Touch
As a small business owner myself, I understand the challenges that come with marketing your business. I offer a full range of services, from brand identity to printed materials and website design. My low overhead allows me to provide affordable services, without sacrificing professional quality. It also allows me to tailor services to your budget – whatever that may be; I want to ensure you get the best deals, so when I save on printing or shipping I pass those discounts on to you.
I am passionate about agriculture and the rural way of life. From growing up on a family farm, through many years spent as a 4-H member, to now working on building my own farm, agriculture and livestock have always been a huge part of my life. I love working with farms to create logos, marketing materials or an online presence. I am also experienced in designing livestock sale catalogs, and understand the importance of providing accurate, easy to understand information for your customers.
More About Me
When I’m not behind the computer, I enjoy growing my own food, cooking from scratch, drawing, and teaching myself to play the banjo. I’m a big fan of camping, fishing, kayaking and really long road trips. I am also a firm believer in lifelong learning and in addition to my design education, I have a diploma in Agricultural Business Management and am currently working towards a Bachelor of Arts in English through distance education.
