A recipe for every pickle you’re in.

I’m the girl everyone asks for a recipe.
And boy do I have them – a recipe for your logo, a recipe for your content, and yes, a recipe for pickles. 

I’m Darlene, owner and designer of Pickle Jar Studios. I’m a graphic designer, content creator and photographer. I love to create work that is intentional, strategic, and visually stunning. 

You may be wondering what exactly I mean by “recipe”? I mean that by following my creative process, we can arrive at your solution. I have created brands, content and photos for my clients that perfectly matches their company, goals, and heart. 

We play with ingredients along the way and my methods never create the same dish twice.

Hi, I’m Samantha. I’m a designer. A creator. An entrepreneur. A connector. A business coach. A community leader. I worked for many advertising agencies in San Francisco as an art director and creative director for 10 years before starting my product line, note•ify. I continue to serve clients in a design capacity and help other entrepreneurs level up their businesses as well as create products that I sell to stores around the country. I work with Darlene on graphic design projects and creating content for social media. 

Bonefide Pickle Lovers: 

Shannon and Darlene have helped me immensely in my business. My business has completely flourished since Shannon has taken over my digital presence. I went from making $2,000 in sales a month to $14,000 in sales a month because of the continuous repetitive posting on my digital channels.

Darlene has done phenomenal photography which we’ve used in our marketing and social media so both of their services have been extremely beneficial and have added to the success of my business.”
