The Challenge

Solo design firm owner Gail Davis wanted to optimize her growing business while staying focused on delivering high-quality creative work to her clients. She kept her records across multiple platforms and needed a single, integrated system that could handle project management, client interactions, and accounting processes.

The Solution

Gail was initially hesitant to use Studio Designer because she thought such a robust platform was only suited for big firms. Gail’s accountant (Financial Consultant Partner, Stemper & Associates) recommended Studio Designer as an all-in-one solution to transform Gail’s one-person business. Studio Designer proved to be the perfect fit for her boutique firm. Gail estimates that, with Studio Designer, she can take on double the amount of projects.

Gail loves the platform’s transparency — the Time Billing function allows her to accurately charge by the hour while juggling multiple projects, detailed invoices ensure clients stay informed, and time-stamped notes keep track of vital details.

Studio Designer helps streamline things. Everything is in one place and it’s just so easy to set up your clients. I feel like it should be the standard across the board — like every designer should be using Studio Designer!
