About Me

The Hutcheson'sHello!  Thanks for wanting to get to know me a little better. Here’s a little history about how I started in the graphic and web design field.  I am from the U.S. Territory of Guam.   There was such a need for quality, affordable graphic design and website development.  The visual communications field was new and not very many people were available. I saw the open door and took it.

I created my first, self-taught website in 2000. After looking for Tweety products all over the web for my newborn daughter in 1999, I decided to list them on one site. I used Geocities, a site where almost every other web designer started. Then I started creating Tweety graphics for other people to download after they kept on “borrowing” mine.

My freelancing started when I registered for my business license and built my first website as a business owner in January 2005 for Abundant Life AG church. It has been a great experience working with many different clients who have become my friends. I stepped out and launched my full-time self-employment career in May of 2007 and have not looked back since.

As a Christian graphic/web designer, I am held by the highest authority to work with excellence in everything I do no matter who it is.  Now that I have moved to Copperas Cove, Texas on May 27, 2009, my adventure is just beginning as I seek to bring my experience and joy of designing to the Lonestar state.  I am working at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor as their webmaster when I’m not at Church Without Walls taking care of the media area.  On the other days that I’m free, I’m hanging out with my awesome family and trying to bring our personality into our very first home.  And through all that, I want to share the things that I’ve learned and made mistakes on so that you might in some way benefit. 🙂

Love, Lucy

  1. well, I dont know if you could help me but I want to know how to do my own posters, mainly motivational and bible verses, Im no designer?

    • Hi Camille!

      That’s awesome that you want to do your own posters. I would look up a bunch of tutorials and learn some basics by following the tutorials. And then go ahead and try one of your own. It might look rough in the beginning but with practice, you’ll get better. My suggestion is to look at what other designers are doing as well to get a better idea of spacing and kerning and leading and using negative space. You will definitely need some sort of graphics program as well. Photoshop and Illustrator are the design standards but there may be free ones available. Just search for them. Just keep practicing. Your first few may look a little rough. My first few years definitely did. LOL But you will get better over time.

      Good luck!
      Lucy
