Hello, I’m Arianne, and I am “Captain & Founder” of a web and graphic design studio called Aeolidia. I’ve learned over the past few years to quit calling it a “small design studio,” now that there are 21 of us. Though I did get a little flustered introducing myself to someone over the weekend and saying that I “work for” Aeolidia – like I’m the receptionist or something (note: I do not have a receptionist)! Do you ever have a hard time noticing how far you’ve come? Jess kindly offered to let me share our anniversary celebration with the wonderful Oh My! Handmade readers, and of course I leapt at the chance, because I think just about most of you will delight in our manifesto and are well aligned with our company values.
Our clients are handcrafters, designers, artists, oddballs, perfectionists, entrepreneurs, hard workers, bright burning flames! We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Is that you? Oh good. Read on!
A week of giveaways
To celebrate our anniversary and the launch of our new site, we are smack in the middle of a week of giveaways. Don’t worry! You can still download the freebies and enter to win any of our giveaways. I’m going to give people time to check everything out, and then choose winners. If you see an entry form on the blog posts, you’re welcome to enter, because we’re trying something new this time: instead of having a set limit of winners, we are just trying to help as many people as we reasonably can.
