COMMUNITY & PROFESSIONAL INVOLVEMENT
Below is a collection of the marketing materials I've designed, created, published, or printed over the years for my clients. Each item is categorized by websites, digital/animation, printing, and photography.
It is great to work with a company that understands not just online marketing but also local advertising as well. It made it easier to have a consistent message through all our marketing outlets.

The Hillsdale Marketing Group designed a billboard for me and it is stunning. We are fortunate to have such a great marketing co. In our little town.
Amanda did a fantastic job with our website. She has both the technical knowhow and the design sense to make it functional and visually appealing. Highly recommend!
Amanda was nothing but professional. She understood my brand and was meticulous with her details. Her prices are super reasonable, for a small business that is helpful! She truly made it possible for me to go more digital and it’s helped my business grow. I would definitely recommend her, which I already did, my friend is working with her as well now!

All I can say is WOW! After consulting with several WIX developers, it was clear that Amanda had a deep understanding of the WIX platform. Communications was awesome, and she really listened and took the time to understand our business. Her suggestions on what we could do better to help with future additions to our site and better understand SEO was invaluable.
We look forward to working with Hillsdale Design on future projects!

Amanda from Hillsdale Web Design was fantastic to work with! She was quick to respond, highly knowledgable, and a great communicator. In addition, she was able to complete my website re-design quicker than anticipated and under budget. If you're looking for support on your Wix website, I'd highly recommend Amanda.

My experience & a little bit about me
I started my journey in 2009 as a self-taught graphic designer working for Jonesville Printing in Jonesville, MI, USA. I worked for several local companies, including Stockhouse, The Community Helper, Current Office Solutions, and Simply Hers Magazine. I learned how to operate print machinery, apply vinyl to cars, create digital marketing pieces, and develop a love for customer service.
In 2014, while on maternity leave for my second child, Judah (my first son's name is Noah, and my third son's name is Ezra), I decided to dive into web design. For the next two years, I worked full time, and at nights and weekends, I'd work on creating websites.
In 2016, I officially started Hillsdale Web Design. During this time, I discovered that online websites could only be seen organically if they also implemented strategic digital marketing. So, in 2018, I found other local freelancers who brought different marketing skills to the team. Together, we branched out into the digital marketing scene under the name Hillsdale Marketing Group (sometimes referred to as HMG Marketing and Web Design Company, or HMG for short).
During this time, I learned about business and management and increased my skillset using Search Engine Optimization and UX design. However, I realized that creating a large company with many clients was different than I thought it would be. Returning to my Hillsdale Web Design days when I could focus on clients more one-on-one, having fewer of them was what I was drawn to. In addition, I learned that today's market calls for businesses that are more personable, more real, who give back, and who have personality.
Around September 2022, I faced a lot of hardship in my personal life. I'd lost my grandma, and my children were crying out for me to be more 'present' in their lives. Running a start-up business has taken me away from many precious moments. I had to make a choice, keep doing what I was doing or put my family first. I decided to close HMG. I will forever be grateful to those who came along with me on my journey! Thank you to Sarah Gray, Connie Sexton, Christine Bowman, Tim Bowman, Robyn Jones, Andrew Stella, and Anne Brenner–I love each of you!
Now it's on to the future! In 2023, I am rebranding myself as A. Honey Creations, offering content creation services and aiding my clients as a Digital Marketing Strategist! I operate with fewer clients and bring my personality, values, and who I am to the table.
