Work with a highly capable, freelance writer/designer who is obsessed with helping you succeed (and pizza!).

Andrea Schmidt

When I was 5, I self-published my first book using scrap paper, crayons and glue. It may have been about pizza. Once, I was hit by lightning while tree planting. After studying professional writing in University, I veered straight into graphic design because I was fascinated by how writing looked. Somehow I make a living at designing (and sometimes writing) things that help people! The heart of my “life purpose” is creating beauty and communicating clearly and beautifully – creating beautiful things that help and delight people.

My approach is based on open communication, honesty, and enthusiasm.

I have an Honours degree in Professional Writing, over 10 years experience designing/editing/writing printed & digital materials including books, and coach training from Certified Coaches Federation.
