Hello!

I’m Sharon Mendelaoui

Freelance Graphic Designer

My Story

Hi, my name is Sharon Mendelaoui (pronounced mend-el-awi) and I am a creative multidisciplinary graphic designer with over 15 years experience.

During this time I worked as a corporate graphic designer for financial firms, communications companies, design agencies, and book publishers. I also founded Dream Travel Magazine an online travel website with over 10,000 UVAs/month and over 30K in social media followers.

In 2014, I was downsized from my last corporate role and decided to head out on my own and focus my skills helping small to mid-size businesses with their marketing projects.

From logo design, document cleanup to customized WordPress websites and blog consultations, my clients know they can come to me to get their projects completed afordably.

My Clients

“I was highly satisfied with Sharon’s work: she paid particular attention to our business goals and marketing strategy and proposed the solution that was tailored to these. She kept her fees transparent and stayed with the budget as agreed on. But most importantly, her design work captured perfectly the essence of our brand, providing us with additional tools to continuously build the brand awareness. Her add-on skills in building social media strategy and business development came in very handy.”

Ianna Dogel, CEO, ConnexFund

“Sharon’s web and graphic design expertise rescued my webpage from cyberspace obscurity by creating a clean and accessible web presence that I can control from my own desktop. Now I have a site that I am proud to share with my patients because it clearly represents both me and my clinic to world wide browsers. Sharon has always responded quickly to emails when I have queries and has been an invaluable resource when I have questions as to how to best present the content I compose. She has taught me how to blog and how to accomodate my web design to the mobile phone world. Sharon is A++ in my books! Thanks Sharon!”
