Well hello there! My name is Abby and welcome to Figment Branding!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a super creative person. I have been jokingly teased when I was little for wanting to start up businesses and different Instagram accounts for everything, so I can only think that this, Figment Branding, is a culmination of all my inspiration!
At Figment Branding, we understand that it can be tricky for small businesses to find their signature look and create a unique brand image- so that’s where we come in! Offering brand and web design/development services, we are committed to working together to create customised solutions for your business. We love connecting with like-minded individuals and can’t wait to meet more awesome entrepreneurs!
I have been designing for 5+ years and have an advanced diploma in graphic design from Mohawk College. I’ve also received a gold medal from Skills Ontario in their graphic design category, and a bronze medal from Skills Canada in their graphic design category! Most recently, I received the Outstanding Achievement Award at my college’s convocation! I am so grateful for the skills and connections I gained from going to school for design. That decision has definitely led me to where I want to be!
Other than design, you can find me crocheting stuffed animals to sell at local markets, or writing music and singing and playing my guitar! It’s fair to say I have lots of hobbies and passions, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Isn’t it so weird having an idea in your head for so long and then- bam! It’s out into the world? That’s kind of how I am feeling right now! If you’ve ever owned a business, I’m sure you understand the feeling. There is a lot of planning and work involved, but it is all so rewarding and totally worth it!
I chose the name Figment for my business because I want to take your ideas and make them real- no longer imaginary! By definition, figment is “a thing that someone believes to be real but that exists only in their imagination.”
That could be you right now- stuck with ideas and thoughts and plans and dreams in your head that are very real to you, but haven’t made an appearance in a tangible way yet.
The most rewarding thing about being a graphic designer, particularly a brand and web designer, is helping businesses look their best, and in turn, feel their best. Businesses rely on visuals and marketing to stand out in the crowd.
If you or someone you know is in need of a new brand identity, or a website, I’d love to chat!
