Animal Lover: rescued 2 pitbulls, a mama of 2 Koi fishes and 1 blue & gold macaw
Hi everyone! I’m Hong Diaz, a Branding and Strategic Web Designer for small business owners and entrepreneurs. My passion is helping businesses to grow and inspiring creative women. I’m originally from Vietnam, lived in Singapore for 2 years, and now I am in Florida. If you’re wondering what brought me to the US and why my last name is Diaz, it’s because early on in life I decided to come to US to study abroad and during my journey, I met and fell in love with my soulmate. He is a wonderful Cuban – American man. We got married and I took his last name.
Have you ever wondered if there’s more to life?
Is there something big out there waiting for you or have you ever had something burning inside of you to inspire and make an impact?
That was me back in 2011 when I lived in Singapore. As an outsider looking in, my life looked pretty good at that time. I had a good job and nice apartment, but there was something telling me that I wanted to do more with my life.
At the beginning of 2013, I moved back to Vietnam and six months later I flew halfway across the world to the US to continue my education. Then a year later, something really bad happened: I remembered that morning, I received a call from my doctor. He told me I had been diagnosed with cancer. That meant I had to take a break from school for my 2 surgeries and cancer treatments.
As you can imagine, I was in bad shape and sick, but I wasn’t ready to give up. Earlier that week, I turned my laptop on and made the choice that changed my life…
The world was my oyster because I learned how to code…because I learned how to build websites…
I know I had a passion for coding but wasn’t quite sure what that looked like in real life setting until I was introduced to WordPress. It’s free software that makes it super easy to build websites, but I’m going to tell you an embarrassing secret about me. Perhaps you’re making the same mistake I was.
I used to think that design was about making things look pretty, but it’s so much more than that! Pretty doesn’t mean it sells, so having a pretty website isn’t enough!
Some of the best advice I ever received when I first started down the online freelance journey, was simple… SOLVE PEOPLE’S PROBLEM!
That’s why I combined website strategy, branding and handcrafted design to create a powerful website so you can share your message with the world and instantly appeal to your high-end dream clients.
This took many sleepless nights, months of focused effort and money out of my savings, but it was totally worth it!
My mission is to bring innovative solutions and provide all my clients with strategy, branding and handcrafted design that truly brings out their personality, increase sales and grow their business.
Let me know how I can add value to your Business!
