LIFE IS TOO SHORT . . .
Not to surround yourself with beauty and inspiration! I am passionate about helping anyone who wants to quickly communicate the value of their products, services, or middle-of-the-night brilliant ideas.
The internet has revolutionized business. Anyone can look big, even if they are working out of a closet. With over 20 years of marketing and business development experience, I focus on creating powerful communications through strong designs, clear copy, and targeted content.
I specialize in working with new companies to create a solid, initial business identity that shows your distinctive personality. I love helping “small” companies look BIG. I also help established companies create a fresh new look to keep up with the competition in this highly-visual world. I believe details are important and that each one is an opportunity to advance your business.
I am always excited by a creative challenge, and it does not cost a thing just to get together and chat – heck, I’ll even buy the coffee!Let’s Talk! View Services
I am an artist at heart… with an irrational obsession for problem solving.
My professional career saw me for many years in fundraising and development for various art and health-related non-profits. These moments taught me to wear many hats, to do a lot with very little, and to create compelling and actionable communications as if a life depended on it. In some cases, it did. The biggest lesson I learned is that it is never too soon or too late to create for yourself a career that brings you joy every day. For me, that lies in using my boundless creative energy to help others.
p.s. If you were wondering, the name is pronunced KOO-VING-YOU – a gift from my French husband.

I thoroughly enjoyed the creative process with Pam.

Pamela provided me with my ideal portfolio website. When other designers fell short, she honed in and carefully crafted an exemplary site within the fastest turnaround time I previously didn’t think possible. Couldn’t recommend enough!

Couvignou Creative was the perfect company for all our design needs. Pam transformed our cluttered and disorganized website into a clean and visually appealing site with a natural flow. As a busy professional I appreciate her ability to quickly transform my sparse ideas into a rich product. She has great ideas and is extremely responsive. Her work on our website, newsletters, and other digital media has been invaluable.
