Data visualizations, report design, conceptual/theoretical/logic models and frameworks, custom illustrations, visual abstracts or shareable graphics, and slide design: we’ve got you covered.
I love helping organizations take their standard (boring) report and upgrading it to be clean and modern. Don’t have a ginormous budget? Don’t let that stop you from having a lovely report!
I enjoy working on relatively smaller projects that focus on cleaning up the text design, adding a simple icon and color system, and converting outdated graphs into data visualizations.
Sure! We could always keep going from here, but these foundational design steps go a long way towards increasing the readability and impact of research & evaluation reports.
Clean, modern, and consistent design? Check.
Modern printer-ink-friendly visuals added? Check.
Engaging, easy-to-understand graphs? Cheeeeeck.
Less stress for you and a report delivered with a smile? Checkity check check.
Illustrations & Comics/Cartoons
We’d love to create a comic, cartoon, or illustration for you!
Do you have a complex or complicated topic that is hard to present, but you can never find the perfect visuals for it? Want a new and engaging way to tell a story about your research or evaluation project? Want to add comics to your blog posts but don’t have the time or know-how to make them yourself? Need a custom icon set for your unique topic?
We can make a custom visual, comic or cartoon for you. I coordinate everything, but you have a choice between two designers.
You can see a sample of my drawing style in my blogs and in my YouTube videos. I specialize in drawing digitally, by hand (“freestyle”) which gives the images an informal, fun, and approachable vibe.

“She was…spot-on with enhancing my original vision. The final product was beautiful, yet appropriate for a scholarly audience.”
I reached out to Echo because I needed to create a model / design for my conceptual research. While I am highly tech savvy, I am not a graphic designer and do not have an “artsy” mindset. I definitely had the concept and vision in mind, even attempted at designing/drawing/building it myself. I downloaded Adobe Photoshop, did some work and it looked horrible, very sloppy and unprofessional. I was working against the clock and did not have time to invest in learning the software in the very short amount of time I had to submit the design. I felt that Echo’s prices were fair and she went above and beyond the call of duty, her turn-around time was fast and her detail in the project was meticulous. She was productive, efficient, and spot-on with enhancing my original vision. The final product was beautiful, yet appropriate for a scholarly audience. She provided many options and ways I could make my design versatile for a myriad of future scholarly projects, such as slideshows, presentations, papers, posters, etc. I will definitely be returning for future services with my creative works and also to talk with Echo for some coaching on building my dossier in the academy. Without reservation, I highly recommend Echo Rivera and CRC for all creative projects and also many other impressive and jaw-dropping professional services that she provides. Her work was better than I had anticipated and she truly saved my entire life.

Once you learn about clean and modern slide design, it can feel like a daunting and overwhelming tasks to update your existing presentations. Luckily, we can help with that. My team will help set up your slide deck so that you can take it from there and finalize the design. We’ll declutter your presentation, apply a consistent design, and ensure you’re using animations correctly.
Here are some of the design services my team could do:
Convert your deck to a widescreen (if applicable).
Delete clutter (including clip art images and your template)
Provide feedback on your slide design style (i.e., typefaces/fonts and colors).
Apply your slide design style to each slide.
Increase the font sizes (for slides with fewer than 40 words).
Edit some of the master template basics to match your slide design style.
Set up simple animations throughout the presentation.
Cleanup and declutter your data/graphs.
