Fetching Finn is a Digital Media Design company. We’re known for pulling together fast and creative design ideas that solve promotional challenges. We make our clients look like business rock stars!
My name is Nikki Jackson.
I am a Brand Steward, which is a tough-girl way of saying I design and manage leading edge multimedia projects for movers and shakers in business. I partner with them to create digital media pieces to turn their brand stories into solutions for their business goals.
So, what does that really mean?
To a serious business owner, it means time to relax. Chances are, you’ve been stressing over a lot of little projects that are critical to identifying and promoting your brand.

Full Brand Solutions, Not Piecemeal Projects
If I had a dollar for every time I had this kind of conversation…
“Do you do websites?”
“Great. I don’t have much money to spend, but I need one that does A-B-C and X-Y-Z. I already have a logo that my husband/neighbor/dogwalker made for me in Corel/Word/crayon that I can scan for you. How much will that cost and when can you have it done?”
When you focus on a quick and dirty solution for only one piece of the puzzle, you’re doing a huge disservice to your business, your stress level, and your wallet. A free, fuzzy logo and a fly by night web designer might scratch an immediate itch, but chances are good you’ll soon be squirming.
The brand won’t feel right. Maybe you’re attracting the wrong customers (or no customers). When someone asks for your business card, you cringe and pass it to them with excuses or apologies. Those four hours you struggled trying to get an ad to be the right size and format – sweat, tears, frustration – is time you’ll never get back. And it snowballs from there.
Brand Steward Ease
Imagine a world where your Brand Steward custom creates a visual identity for your business that you can’t wait to show off. That’s happy self-promotion, baby.
While discussing content for your brochure, she mentions that she’ll design the layout in a format that can be instantly re-sized for matching posters next month. And the website graphics for the landing page are going to be a breeze. Great ideas! How did she know you needed all that?
She suggests you have a new head shot taken for your social media sites – sans tie. So right. It was never your style. Not only does she have the perfect photographer in mind, but she talks to them about including specific poses that would also work perfectly for your next TV ad campaign.
You drop her a late night text message saying, “I have to provide a silent auction display for our charity event. Must be spectacular. What can we do?” and she comes back with the right questions, plan, budget, a kick-ass solution, and a promise to deliver on time. No surprise – a woman of her word.
Logo requests? Quick website updates? Radio coverage and press releases? Your Brand Steward is there.
And sometimes she just shows up with cookies to say thank you and might mention things like, “I drove by your billboard on the weekend and I’ve requested a reprint for you – it’s a little too dark. I also have an idea to make your email sync easier to manage, so let me know when you have a moment to chat.” Really? Wonderful. Aaaahhhhh.
And the relationship goes on and it feels easy. Fun. Almost surreal, at times, because you now have a partner that takes up no office real estate or space on your payroll.
Sound good? Welcome to the world of Fetching Finn. Let’s chat.
Thank you notes, online reviews, tears of joy…here are just a few:
Nikki Jackson sat with me and listened to what I wanted for my Dental Hygiene Clinic. She recognized that public awareness of independent dental hygiene clinics is low, and that we are different…so no typical “teeth” in our design. She asked many questions to get a real sense of our mission and vision – THEN she created a logo that we love…Thanks to Nikki for all her assistance, our Twitter layout and Facebook image!!Sally Lloyd, Owner and RDH - Lifetime Smiles Dental Hygiene Clinic
Nikki amazed me with her ability to understand “my brand”, maybe even better than I did. She captured it in a logo on the first try. I still smile every time I see it. Her approach is professional, timely, and creative. I would bring her my next graphics art project for sure!Kirsten Wreggitt, Process Map Cultivator - BloomScript
Nikki did a stellar job helping me with my first ever website. Great consultative approach, very creative, flexible and intuitive. I am very happy with the finished result and have been trained by Nikki to self-manage the content moving forward. I have already recommended Nikki several times.Kevin Copithorne, VP Consulting and Services
