Andrea Robinson

Hello, I’m Andrea Robinson a small business professional, EntreLeader, creative thinker, impact maker, illustrative graphic designer, logo designer, artist and entrepreneur enthusiast located in beautiful, Georgetown, KY. I have been serving the local community surrounding Lexington, KY since 2001.

I BELIEVE

I believe success is largely defined and attained by following your vision, doing work you love and working with people you enjoy. This is exactly how I achieve small business success. Client’s are not only attracted by my work, but also by my mission to transform intangible assets – spirit, attitude, personality – into tangible objects whether in print or a digital graphic image that people immediately understand.

My Purpose

Big city quality – small town charm – moderately priced for the economy today. I have a gift for really listening to client needs and desires delivering solutions that solve specific business challenges unique to you. Maybe you want to hire a designer but are having trouble finding a designer who is candidly honest, delivers what you want, and goes above and beyond. You will appreciate a professional who goes out of her way to make sure you are happy and your clients are too.

Visual Graphic Design | Marketing | Brand Strategy

These three areas are related and a business can thrive harnessing the synergy between each but make no mistake they are not all the same. They all serve different functions in pursuit of a common goal, to grow your small business.

I am proud to have established my name in the community by creating a business that is both credible and caring. The ultimate compliment is that of a won referral. I am so humbled and thankful for all the wonderful leaders who give the generous gift of a referral to me.
