Are you ready to create or uplevel a visual brand for your business or do you need a go-to designer as part of your team each month?


Are you a small business owner that needs DIY tips on branding + design?

Or, are you so busy focusing on what you're good at in your business (plus, you don't have the extra time or skills) that you really just need to work with a dependable, go-to designer — who will either take care of your entire visual identity and/or serve as an extension of your team, as a creative partner, helping to develop print + digital graphics on a monthly basis?

Either way, you've come to the right place!

Jessie designed my logo and brand board. I can’t say enough good things about her! She is such a talented designer, and an absolute professional to work with! She made the entire process so easy- she communicates in a timely manner, takes feedback super well, and is always willing to go the extra step to accommodate your preferences and needs. She really “got me” and my vision for my business, and was able to expertly translate that into a brand board and logo that was spot on, and totally gorgeous! I am beyond ecstatic with the work Jessie did! She has definitely become my “go to” graphic designer for my business!

I'm Jessie Ford Coots, the owner + designer behind Untethered. To understand who I am as a person, competitive barrel racer (yes, I own quarter horses!) and creative entrepreneur (and where my business namesake originated), you should know that...

Once upon a time, when I was 17, I underwent two major (and unexpected) back surgeries. The first procedure corrected something called a "tethered spinal cord" (that I had unknowingly, my entire life) causing me to have severe scoliosis. The second procedure, two months later, was a 9-hour spinal fusion surgery that straightened my spine (already so curved from the scoliosis) with stainless steel rods, bolts, screws + wires — all after which, my life was changed. I was sidelined from not only competing, but riding horses in general, for over a year.

Now, does the name "Untethered" make sense?

Scoliosis and surgery took a year of my "normal life" from me, but I recovered and bounced back stronger than ever before. I now use the drive and ambition that I gained from my life-threatening medical experiences to inspire others (especially fellow female entrepreneurs) to create a visual brand that gives their business (and in turn, their life) the freedom to grow and flourish as much as possible — and to never be held down.
