Wondering how to…
Stop questioning your design skills or wondering if this business you love is actually viable. Stop wondering what you’re doing wrong and feeling wounded when clients can’t just relax and trust. I’ve been where you are, trust me. The problems you face aren’t personal. The solution is actually simple…
Hi, I’m Christine, creator of Designing to Delight and Christine Marie Studio. Over 25 years – I’ve honed my collaborative design process – eliminating multiple concepts and extra revision cycles, creating client trust and increasing my ability to charge more for my work.
Over the last 5 years, this design process has allowed me to more than 10x my income per project (for the same work) while stepping off of the hamster wheel of endless revisions and frustration.
DtD guides you through my strategic design system – from discovery to home page concept – showing you how to work with clients collaboratively and arrive at a design they love, every time. You’ll feel inspired, and in control. More importantly, you’ll be able to charge significantly more for the work you love.
Understanding how to put design elements together is only the beginning. I’m teaching you how to step outside of the bubble of your own ideas and create beautiful and effective designs for real clients. You won’t learn THIS in any other design course!
I’ve created tools and resources to help you apply what you learn to your very next project. You can take immediate action, and even kickstart the stalled projects on your plate right now. That’s what I want for you… smooth, successful projects and delighted clients so you can finally make a living doing work you love!

I want you to delight your very next client!

I’m a brand and web designer, wife, and mom of two who is frequently distracted by two crazy pugs. As a designer, I love well-crafted fonts, white space and simplicity. Over the last 25 years, I’ve worked with all kinds of clients, on all kinds of projects.
In 2012, I founded Christine Marie Studio and began working with women entrepreneurs similar to myself. I’ve worked with some amazing individuals! I’m known for my ability to translate what my clients say into a design that captures their unique brand personality – taking their words and creating a design they love!
As my process evolved, I quickly learned that encouraging clients to actively participate resulted in better designs. My clients were delighted, and I was rewarded with their complete trust in the process. This way of working is what I’m sharing with you in Designing to Delight.
It’s why I started teaching what I know. Being a designer isn’t always easy, but interacting with clients and designing things for them should feel collaborative and satisfying – without the drama of them taking over, dragging you through endless revision cycles, or modifying your designs until you cringe.
Here’s why I know you can…
Marketing strategies come and go. Design tools change. But the process of design itself doesn’t really change. Mastering the strategic design process – learning how to guide clients and translate their vision into a design they love – is the key to confidence… and the key to charging a lot more for your work.
I can’t wait to teach you!
