Hey Instigator!

Work with Me

Design, illustration and custom artwork for small businesses and creatives.

Hi Is a small creative studio based in Nashville, TN.

My mission is simple: To create one-of-a-kind visuals that reflect the heart of your brand + attract your people – all while keeping the process fun, collaborative and efficient.

I work with a select number of clients to ensure each project gets the time and attention deserved (this keeps us both sane and happy). An in depth discovery process serves as our guide throughout the process and helps me better understand you, your business and your people.

Every project starts by hand (ink, paint, pencil), and I am very intentional about keeping that handmade integrity from start to finish.

Great working together. Amber got what we needed, incorporated feedback and developed new ideas, then nailed the deliverables on time and with a smile! Couldn’t be happier.

The artwork is beautiful, Amber’s professionalism topnotch, and everything was on time and on budget. I would recommend HI! to anyone. In fact, I will!

Amber is not only talented, she’s a joy and a pleasure to work with. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. (In fact, I’m already plotting new ways we can collaborate in future as I type this).

Working with Amber was incredible. Not only did she take my super fluffy idea & run with it, she executed it beautifully—it completely exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled to work with her & am dreaming up the time we can work together again. There’s no one else I’d rather work with.

Working with Hey Instigator! was an amazing experience! Amber is so down to earth and easy to work with. The ‘Kiss Me I’m Ginger’ tee is now one of our top selling products.
