Janel Simms’ career started with a BFA in Graphic Design from SCAD. Her style matured during years of offset, digital and large-format design. Over the last decade, her range has expanded to digital marketing and WordPress design/development.
Designing for print creates wonderfully tactile pieces which offers a unique experience unlike that of web design. The challenge is to design a piece that translates well in print, sails through prepress, and prints as expected. Wagging Labs has 15 years experience in print design and understands the intricacies of CMYK vs PMS, coated versus uncoated sheets, and proper document setup so that you can avoid potential pitfalls and expensive reprints.
WordPress is undoubtedly one of the top content management systems available. It’s infinitely flexible and provides users the ability to own and edit their content as they please. Wagging Labs offers premium WordPress design with custom styling and plugin integration, providing you with an engaging and updatable online presence that’ll separate you from your competition.
Proficiency in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat is paramount for any designer and we constantly strive to do things faster, better and smarter. We don’t stop there either. Wagging Labs presents complex data from Microsoft Excel and Word into visually impressive and readable tables, charts, and graphs using Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. Whether we’re using one program or five, we always elect to use the right program for the job to achieve the best results.

We haven’t always received what we wanted from previous contractors so it was fantastic to have a different experience with Janel. At our first meeting, she was prepared, organized and talked us through the process of building the site. We knew she was knowledgeable and couldn’t be beat. She really took our ideas and made them into something awesome!
Janel was outstanding, probably the best contracted individual we've hired. The work was beyond expectations, very expedient, and her communication was outstanding. Janel took our suggestions and ideas and was able to augment them into a solid design that is inviting to prospective clients. She’s a pleasure to work with and I would love to have been able to bring her in as a full-time employee.
Janel is professional, efficient, and easygoing. The work she delivers is always classy, creative and practical. She has provided multiple revisions, always with patience and accuracy. Her designs are interesting and unique — we never feel like it's recycled. Our events and general brand have been given a real boost thanks to her keen eye and creative flair.
Thank you for all the lovely work and terrific service you gave us at the Guild. We always found you incredibly talented and fabulous to work with.
