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.

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 (I don’t design just websites based on branding created by another designer) 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 went on a vacation to Lisbon, 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 or 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 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 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 and 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 Marina’s and Lana Del Rey’s songs, 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
🌿 I’m a vegetarian
✈️ I love to travel! For the past 4 years, I’ve changed my place of residence several times – I lived in Poland, UK, Brazil, Portugal, Spain and France (and more to come 😉 )

We're taking over a week off offline, taking our smartphones just to be able to make calls, use GPS and take photos - but nothing work related ;) CAN'T WAIT!!!! xo

Brand & Website Design for Creatively Beth

Earlier this year, I got an inquiry from Beth Watson, who was looking to rebrand her blog & business from Beth Watson Design Studio to Creatively Beth. She had a blog on Blogger and she decided to change the business name and website platform. I couldn’t be more excited to work with another crafter (after Kingston Crafts and Scrap Me Quick Designs). Today, I’m thrilled to share with you the brand & website design for Creatively Beth.

  • I'm in the middle of writing a portfolio blog post about brand & website design for @creativelybeth so I thought I'll share with you an illustrated blog categories icons that I designed for Beth.

I had so much time creating them! All right, I'm going back to blog post writing so I can publish it before I go on a honeymoon (more details soon!) xo
  • I can't believe it's been 4 years since I got my first graphic design project. I still remember it, as if it was yesterday - I was blown away and excited because I got a chance to work on business cards for an award-winning British singer!

I couldn't be happier to be able to work with amazing women from all over the world! I'm grateful that I can share my passion and love to design and at the same time, help others grow their business.
