I'm Gia, the face behind Hello Gia Rose LLC.
Brand & Web Designer, mama of two, iced coffee aficionado, and your newest business bestie!
Located on the Gulf Coast, I help mama-owned businesses who want to leave a lasting impression and launch faster by providing custom brand and website design services.
So, like any good introduction begins, I bet you're wondering how I ended up here. My entire life I have always been designing or creative in some way. Let's take a look back at how exactly I landed where I am.
The first time I ever designed a website was in the sixth grade for a Science class project. Kinda odd, but I thought it was the coolest thing ever. (I still do!). That really set off my love of web design.
Fast forward a couple of years and we are going full force living in the MySpace era! Oh, what a time to be alive! Not unlike other millennials, this was kind of my gateway to real graphic design. Did you become a full-fledged coder at the age of thirteen, too?
Even with my love of different types of art, when I finished High School I chose to enroll in Beauty School in the great state of Washington (PNW born and mostly raised)! My mother has been a Cosmetologist my entire life and so from a young age I knew that was something I really wanted to do, too. Like they say, "like mother, like daughter," right?
I have actually been a licensed Cosmetologist for the past ten years! I don't currently work in a salon, but I did really love working behind the chair before I became a Stay at Home Mom (we'll touch on that later). The best part? Transforming someone's life! I have always been passionate about making others feel good, and when that wave of confidence came over a client... yeah, that's the stuff I live for.
I'm glad you asked! Because it does, I promise. Remember the part where I became a Stay at Home Mom? Well, I found out I was pregnant with my oldest and I always knew if I had children I would want to be able to stay home with them, and thankfully my husband wanted the same thing for our family. Through a series of unfortunate events (car trouble), I ended up quitting my job at the salon I was working at the time because we wound up only having one vehicle, and well, it was my job or my husband's. Since we had recently found out I was pregnant, it all seemed like the perfect timing for me to start staying home and preparing for our little one. Funny how things work out, huh?
Whew, motherhood changed me. But for the better.
One of the things becoming a mother has taught me is the importance of having an identity and doing things I enjoy outside of motherhood. Because even though being a wife and a mother is the most important role I will ever play, it is still only a part of what makes me, me.
And that passion that I had for making others feel good about themselves? Yeah, that never went away even though I wasn't actively working.
I knew I wanted to stay at home, but I had a burning passion to let the creative entrepreneur in me shine, help others feel confident, and build something that I was solely responsible for.
As a multi-passionate person, it took dabbling in a few of my hobbies to decide what I wanted to offer to the world, business-wise.
Throughout the last couple of years everything that I was enjoying creatively had a very common thread of graphic design. If that was the part I was enjoying the most of everything I was doing, why didn't I just go for it?!
So, that's what I did!
As a fellow creative entrepreneur and service provider, I totally understand how important your business is to you. That's why when you work with me, I will treat the responsibility I have of designing for you and your business with the utmost respect and importance.
My mission is to create beautiful brands and websites for other creative entrepreneurs that they can feel confident in, knowing their online presence will attract the exact people they dream of working with.
I also know how precious your time is as a business owner. That's why my systems are set in place to allow me to offer VIP Day Design Intensive services - so you can put a stop to all the DIY-ing and get back to working in your zone of genius!
It is also important to me to offer options for all budgets. All our circumstances are different and we all start somewhere - something I never want to lose sight of or take for granted. That is why I offer not only premium custom services, but semi-custom premade products in my shop that can help you create a beautiful brand while staying on budget.
Seriously, I so appreciate you being here and taking the time to get to know me and my story a little better.
I would love to get to know you, work together, and help your design dreams come true for your amazing creative business!
