conveyed through graphic design, web design, therapeutic massage, jewelry design, and my esoteric poetic ramblings. I am very passionate about the things that I love to do and it is the essence of my day to day journey.
To the right is my design process:
Discover – This is when I brainstorm, gather ideas and notes and formulate the business/product, target audience, goals, and functions. TaZiyah Designs is the catalyst that combines your ideas/concepts with stunning energy.
Design – During this phase, I prepare preliminary plans, flowcharts, logos, themes, print stationery, layouts, banners, etc. Your viewers will appreciate a flawless design with purpose.
Develop – This is the phase where I execute the designed plans, validating all coding, content, and data. I test usability and accessibility. I also integrate social media. TaZiyah Designs uses digital design to solve problems efficiently.
Deploy – This is the phase when I move the concept from a local environment to a live environment while ensuring search engine optimization and data reporting. I work closely with my clients, and my extensive background in excellent customer service ensures success.
Delight – At last, we can share in the satisfaction and enjoyment of experiencing your concept come to fruition. Any opportunity to improve involves some degree of uncertainty, but I welcome this opportunity and I am not afraid to take a chance.
Whatever your vision, TaZiyah Designs can bring it to life in a timely, affordable, and efficient manner, while maintaining the effectiveness that you deserve.
I am focused on effectively communicating with potential and established clients and I am easily accessible.

Graphic & Web Design
I govern my design aesthetic under the harmony of Principle (integrity), Pattern (form), and Purpose (function).
I believe a strong relationship between principle and purpose will usually yield a boring product.
Similarly, I believe a strong relationship between principle and pattern will usually yield some serious eye candy.
Also, I believe that when there is a strong relationship between pattern and purpose, the more conceptual designs are likely to happen.
However, by throwing a little chaos into the mix… in particularly with the pattern and purpose, and the result will be pointless and confusing. Similarly, when that same chaos is added to a conceptual idea, I have discovered some pleasant surprises. Sometimes I do surprise myself.
Ultimately, my main focus is design nirvana, and I achieve this by incorporating a happy medium of Principle, Pattern, and Purpose.
