With over 12 years of design experience, a background in NYC nonprofit fund-raising and a bachelor's degree in fine art, I am an advocate for small nonprofits and 'starving' artists. To gain financial or volunteer support, these organizations and individuals need internet exposure, assistance with social media and other promotion via printed material. I provide simple and elegant graphic and web design at a minimal cost. Email me if you have a design project you need help with be it big or small, or are in need of a website. Quotes are always free! If you're in the Colorado Springs area, we can meet for a free consultation and quote. You can view my design portfolio on Behance, as well.

Testimonials (read all of them here)
"Thank you so much for creating my logo! I just love it and feel it expresses who I am and the spirit of my work." - Jeanne Shoaff, Fire & Light Ceramics

"As a busy freelance writer, I knew that I needed a web presence to showcase my bio and writing clips, so I turned to mo*tif to help me create a website. Morgan worked with me to come up with a design that suited the sassy vibe of the sex and relationships articles that I write, offering me multiple options and incorporating my feedback into her work. She also helped me with buying my domain name and all the other technical aspects of putting up a website that I'd otherwise be clueless about! The result was a clear, easy-to-navigate site that has helped me attract new clients. These days it is essential for any professional person to have a website, but I was initially wary of the cost. Morgan designed and maintains my site for a fraction of the cost that some larger web design firms charge. When it came time for a redesign of my site, Morgan took things to the next level, incorporating video into the design for me. Morgan herself is creative, patient and easy to work with. If you are looking for design services that are professional, eye-catching and affordable, you can't go wrong with mo*tif!" -Ronnie Koenig, Brooklyn, NY

"Fortunately when I was looking for someone to help me create a website, a colleague suggested that I contact Morgan Pfaelzer at mo*tif. He said that Morgan was not only a very creative and technically savvy designer who was easy to work with, but in addition, her pricing was very fair. As a photographer and artist myself I thought I knew exactly how I wanted my website to look, but as we proceeded I sometimes found myself changing my mind and choosing to use Morgan's wise suggestions instead. The entire collaborative process was a very relaxed, positive experience and I am quite happy with the way my website turned out. Already I have received many compliments from those who have seen it." -Laurie Brown, photographer, CA
