Services

In addition to my design and blogging work, I offer professional services to Crocheters and Creative Entrepreneurs.

Please email me at hello@doradoes.co.uk to start a conversation about how I can help make some space in your life.

Pattern Writing

Do you have a talent for crochet design but stumble when it comes to putting those designs to paper?  I can work with you to turn your notes, doodles and scribbles into patterns you can share or sell.

Technical Editing

If you are used to writing your own patterns but need a fresh eye to review them before you hit the publish button, I can perform a technical edit on your pattern.  This could be as simple as checking for typos and helping with layout, to completing a full technical review to ensure the instructions you give actually create the finished object you’re aiming for.  As a designer myself, I know how hard it is to accurately review your own work.  You know what you mean but will anyone else?  Whether it is a written pattern,  a chart or diagram, I can review and check the accuracy, readability and presentation.

Content Writing & Copy Editing

I have always loved writing in many forms.  It’s one of the reasons I started my blog.  Whatever your business model or industry, I can help you create great content for your website, blog or shop.  This could include product descriptions, blog posts, articles, newsletters, marketing materials, templates, or any other copy for your business needs.  You may just need your existing copy proofreading and editing, or you may need it writing from scratch. I can support you with either, ensuring it is your voice your readers hear.

This type of work can be time consuming and, when you run your own creative business, time is one of your most precious resources.   Outsourcing copy-management frees up your time allowing you to focus on doing what you love.

Virtual Assistant (VA) Support

Having spent many years as a Personal Assistant, I can help you with a variety of administrative tasks.  These are not limited to, but range from calendar scheduling, travel arrangement, meeting planning and inbox management, to helping with your social media or maintaining your website or portal (WordPress, Sharepoint).  I can also build basic WordPress sites if you’re starting from scratch.

Furthermore, I have experience with Adobe Creative Suite, regularly using Illustrator, InDesign and LightRoom, so I can help you with design (logos, stationary, business cards etc.), photo manipulation (social media, blogs, web) and layout (newsletters, templates, forms, PDF creation etc.)

How does it work?

I typically work on a project by project basis, so you know will exactly what your outgoings are in advance.  I can also work on a retainer if you are looking for something more consistent.  I offer flexibility to fit around you and your business.

So if you are looking for that extra support,  please email me to discuss your needs.  I am passionate about working with creative entrepreneurs and would love to help you succeed in your journey.
