Is Speak Social the same business as Every Whim Creative?
YES! You’ve found it! In March 2017, Every Whim Creative went under a huge rebrand and is now Speak Social. It’s still me here (Elizabeth) and I'm still providing the same great services!
What's the next step if I'm interested in your services?
How much do your services cost?
Prices depend on many variants, but you can be sure you are getting a great value! Some projects such as branding and website design are charged at a flat rate. Social media marketing is priced at a monthly retainer fee. Most graphic design projects are charged by the hour. Branding projects start at $750, and a full website design starts at $1,300 (but would be a lower cost for a small project). My hourly rate for graphic design projects is $45/hour. Payment plans and discounts available. Contact us to get a custom quote.

Yes, and yes! I’m all about user-friendly design. Mobile is becoming more and more important. A recent study showed that in the U.S., 25% of Internet users ONLY access the Internet on a mobile device - so I’d say now, more than ever, mobile is important.

Absolutely! You’ll be able to update your website through WordPress.org, anywhere you have internet access.
