Hey You! I'm Adrianna

I’m a brand & website designer, blogger, developer & creative entrepreneur behind MintSwift

I help creative entrepreneurs bring their vision of brand & website to life by creating one-of-a-kind, strategic and cohesive designs

WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER:

When I work on my brand & website design packages, I use my development and technical knowledge to take on the different type of projects like: brand design, blog design, website design, e-commerce or membership websites.

I’m mainly a brand & website designer, but I’m both coding and designing to make sure each website is custom and tailored to your brand & business (I style the websites with custom CSS, edit HTML, PHP, add JavaScript and more)

My goal is to provide you with a cohesive and streamlined brand and website from start to finish. I offer all-inclusive brand design package and brand & web design package. Since I do both brand & website design after working with me, you’ll be equipped with full visual identity and (if you choose my brand & website design package) WordPress website.

I can set up important website functionalities such as Google Analytics, email marketing platform, social media integration etc. Also, I help you with more complex tasks like moving your website to a new domain, transferring from one platform to another and more.

Being creative entrepreneur myself (not just a designer), helps me dig deeper than just the visual aspect of the brands & websites I create for my clients. I firstly think of my client’s brand, website & business from a non-visual perspective (brand), before I jump into the visual aspect (brand design) to make sure they work together as a whole. 

I focus on designing brands & websites that are one-of-a-kind, cohesive, streamlined and custom but on the other hand strategic, functional and attracting my client’s ideal audience.

My STORY

Between 2011 – 2014, I was studying at the University and got my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Special Education Needs, Speech Therapy, so (on paper) I’m a speech therapist and teacher. I always thought I wanted to be a psychologist, but by the end of the BA, I had a break. I suddenly realized that I wanted to do something completely different in my life, something that I always dreamt of doing, but was too scared to do so.

Embracing my true passion for graphic design and entrepreneurship was harder than I thought. Deep down, I always knew I wanted to be a Graphic Designer, but everyone was saying that I have to draw perfectly to be one and to be honest, drawing wasn’t my strong point.

I always had the entrepreneurship gene in me, but I had no idea how to start my own business. Also, since I got my first PC in the junior high, I loved all the geeky, techie and nerdy things. In school, I loved subject called Informatics when I learned about hardware and software and I enjoyed doing basic HTML sites.

After I finish my BA, I lived in Lisbon, Portugal, where I’ve started learning a front-end and back-end WordPress development through online resources. Why development? Well, because of my love for all technical things and because of my husband is a Software Developer and I always check what he is doing (because it’s super cool!) and I thought I could try to do it myself.

After few months of learning and doing some test websites in WordPress, I’ve realized that I enjoy creating graphic designs for those websites more than the coding part, so, I focused on learning Graphic Design along with Website Development.

I really wanted to work for myself and earn from my passion. I was able to land my first graphic design project within four months on a website for freelancers. I was blown away by client’s feedback and that my long awaited dream finally came true!

I worked for 2 years on that portal for freelancers. I had a pleasure to work with large companies like American Express, Trotters, Two Birds Bridesmaid and various other smaller businesses. I worked with over 50+ business owners from all over the world. After 2 years, I felt that I wanted to really connect with clients, not only have a profile on the freelance website when I’m one of the other designers “to choose from”

BEGINNING OF MINTSWIFT:

In March 2016, I published my first blog post and officially started working under name the MintSwift and I narrowed down my niche to brand & website design which I enjoy the most and have the most experience with. I genuinely love bringing other creative entrepreneurs visions of brand & website to life by creating one-of-a-kind, strategic and cohesive designs.

Later, I opened my premade design shop, started my own group board on Pinterest which is a gold mine of a valuable blog post from other creative entrepreneurs and me. And I’ve been working with amazing creative entrepreneurs and small business owners on their new brand & web design and other amazing experiences.

WHY MINTSWIFT?

My husband came up with this name, ask him! 😀 But honestly – Mint because I love colour mint (I’m in love with all blue and turquoise shades) and because I create custom and one-of-a-kind designs. Swift because I provide my clients with quick turnarounds and that I have dozens of ideas running through my head all day long.

LET’S GET PERSONAL:

When I’m not designing, I’m on a date with my lovely husband, planning our trips and adventures, singing, watching TV series, taking a lot of pictures and travelling the world with the love of my life.

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:

💍 I recently got married (11.08.2018) to the man of my dreams and now I’m trying to get used to my new surname – Leszczyńska (previously Głowacka)

🇬🇧 I currently live in London, United Kingdom (but I work with clients from all over the world 😉)

🇵🇱 I’m originally from Poland, therefore English is my second language

💎 I used to be a jewellery designer

🚶 I love counting my steps – I wear my Gear Fit 2 watch all the time (I even had it at my wedding!)

😊 I’m an introvert
☕ I don’t drink coffee at all! But I love tea

  • *NEW POST*  How to Create Blog Categories in WordPress - MintSwift  No matter what’s the size of your blog, the categories in WordPress help you organize your posts. They allow you to categorize the content about the same topic into the separate sub-page on your website. If the blog posts fit more than one category, you can have them in more than one. Today I wanted to talk about how to create blog categories in WordPress, so all your posts can be easy to find and well-organized.

  • Two days ago, I've celebrated my business's 3 year anniversary! I can't believe how fast these 3 years passed. I've learned so much about myself, about what really goes into running a business and most importantly what I should focus on in order to reach my goals.  Now, 3 years later, I see things more clearly. I know what I want for my business - deep down I always knew. In my business, I never focused too much on the money, a number of followers, page views or any other numbers. My business is all about helping others and making a difference in their lives and businesses.  The main goal for MintSwift is helping creative entrepreneurs and small business owners bring their vision of brand & website to life by creating one-of-a-kind, strategic and cohesive designs.  With that being said, I've decided to go back to the roots and focus on what has got my business started - MY WEBSITE and MY CLIENTS. I'm posting less on social media (especially on IG)  and doing things at my own pace. I'm ignoring keep-changing IG algorithm and rule to have long captions all the time.  All right, I'm going back to blog post writing. There are some more WordPress 101 post that I have in store!  Stayed tuned on mintswift.com/blog 💙💙💙
  • *NEW POST*  Brand Design for My Paper Printables  I love being organized, have everything streamlined and flexibly planned. Therefore, I was really excited to see a brand inquiry from Traci Gibson of My Paper Printables (now @creativecraftsociety) who creates printables for busy moms as well as cut files for Cricut users. Today I’m excited to reveal the entire brand design I created for My Paper Printables.  https://mintswift.com/blog/brand-design-my-paper-printables/ 💙
  • I'm so excited to finally share what I've been working on since the beginning of this year - WordPress website design for @kingstoncrafts  Beth and I have worked together on her brand design in October 2017, then I helped her implement the new branding on the Squarespace website. Later on, she decided to move her website from Squarespace to self-hosted WordPress and with the switch, redesign the website. I was ecstatic to work with Beth again!!! The main for the new Kingston Crafts website was to make it easier to navigate, so Beth's readers can easily search for older posts, find them in blog archives and quickly find the categories by clicking on the icons.  I can't wait to go more in-depth about everything I did for Kingston Crafts on the blog, soon! ;) In the meanwhile, go to kingstoncrafts.com and browse through Beth's new site  PS. A funny thing happened when I was transferring Beth's site from Squarespace to WordPress - entire Squarespace went down for a few hours! (I shared that on IG stories). So @kingstoncrafts, it seems like you've made a good decision to switch to self-hosted WordPress 😀
