The Benefits of Collaboration

Here’s what I love about working on my own:

I have the freedom to make my own schedule, which means more time to spend with my kids. I get to choose meaningful work, work that fills me with a sense of purpose and pride. I work where I please – be that my office, a coffee shop, or my living room couch.

In a nutshell, my days of clocking in to the cubicle are behind me. And I’m grateful.

In addition to these amazing perks of the solo entrepreneur, I have had the great privilege of collaborating with some wonderful people over the past few years – from local small business owners like Burning Silver Photography to large academic institutions like UNC. I love the diverse group of people that my career affords me to partner with, and it has given me great joy to watch their businesses flourish.

Maybe it was all that creative collaboration that made me feel like something was missing. Four somethings to be exact, and their names are Tiffany, Mary, Lis, and Kate.

See, I love working FOR myself, but I started to realize I didn't love working BY myself. So I went out and formed a team. By creating a collective of highly talented individuals, I am able to share my vision and creative energy with like-minded women, while also expanding all that Detail & Design can offer our clients.

Here are the benefits of collaboration:

We each bring to the table a distinct but complementary service that - when taken together - can produce great things for our clients. I am much stronger with these women on my team. 

We can share in the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship and career, while we also juggle small children and other commitments. 

We are all rooted in the Durham community, and as the city changes, we care about helping to make those changes character-driven and true to the Bull City’s tough entrepreneurial spirit.

We love what we do, and our vision is to provide quality comprehensive communications services to you, our clients. We will work hand-in-hand with you to get your message heard. You can leave the messaging, the design, the marketing, and the branding to us - and you can get back to doing what you do.

We are stronger together and we believe that you will be stronger with us. Welcome to Detail & Design!
