A Chat with Alyssa Ostroff Graphic Design
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Modestly priced design services. I do PRINT, WEB & MULTIMEDIA and ILLUSTRATION. I design graphics, ads, websites and all sorts of marketing materials from start to finish.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been designing professionally for four years and I have had former employers keep me on as a freelancer. Eventually I started gaining clients and expanding my business locally as I saw need.
What do you love most about your job?
Everything! I love that I get to design and color all day, that I get to create something when there was nothing before, that I get to watch my creation come to life from a blank page.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I remember when I would design for free, then one day I had a customer insist they pay me. I refused, but they insisted on giving me at least $20 for a banner I made. I never thought about graphic design as something I could make money from. It steered me toward my career path.
