A Message from the Founder
Hi there! I’m Mercy and I founded this company after successfully freelancing for twelve years.
I first began freelancing when I became pregnant with my first child and she was diagnosed with a birth defect. Doctors’ appointments, tube feedings, more doctors’ appointments, surgeries… not something you can handle working 9-5 for a regular company.
I had taught myself graphic design and web design during my teenage years, and so I decided to go pro by working on oDesk (now Upwork). Over the years, I grew my skillset to include advanced WordPress website development, branding, print design, and video editing. I then worked in a corporate setting for a few years as an in-house designer, but I was struggling financially. And being a woman of color, it was difficult to fight for what I thought I deserved.
I went back to freelancing before COVID-19 started shutting down the United States. I had saved enough money to move my family from the one bedroom we were living in for the past 3 years (yes, 4 people in a single bedroom) into a house where each of my children had their own bedroom. Thanks to my decision to work for myself again, my family was able to weather the pandemic and stay safe.
Once I knew I would never go back (to living in a single bedroom, to being a full-time employee to a company), I founded May Dream Design, LLC to help businesses and personal brands with their online presences.
I’m going to be completely honest here.
I am the breadwinner for my family and I work very hard to support them. I do not have a college degree, but a passion and drive to be excellent in all that I do.
I believe that you don’t need a degree to be successful, excellent, or a good worker. But I do need my team members to have the same passion and drive to work hard and strive for excellence.
If you think you’d be a good fit with my company, I’d love to see your resume/portfolio, and have a chat.
