Simple, Sweet and Smooth – Just Like Honey*
Hi, I’m Jade. Let’s cut to the chase.
After leaving a boutique design firm, I founded HBD in 2013 with the desire to work closely with you, the client. With those who understand the value of building a solid business and lasting relationships.
With over 18 years in the industry and a team of exceptional designers, writers, programmers and social media gurus… we can handle nearly any job.
I’m passionate about natural health and wellness, bringing ideas to life, spirituality, exploring consciousness, self expression, marketing, design, family life and great wine.
I also host a PODCAST focused on creating connections through conscious conversations.
If you think we’d be a good fit, I’d love to discuss your project over coffee or a glass of vino.

I really like working with Jade because she thinks outside the box and get things done quickly. She really helped me out on a tight timeline project.
The cards are amazing! Great choice of card type – the textured feel is really nice. And of course the design is spot on. Exactly what we were hoping for. Thanks again for all your effort in getting those together on such a short timeline.
We had our website re-done with Jade and she was lovely. She is up to date with current marketing & web trends, works quickly and provided me with great advice. I’d definitely hire her again.
I had been struggling with a logo concept for a long time. I had worked with Jade in the past and had been happy with the results so I went to her again to help me with the logo. She asked me a few simple questions about what I do, why I do it & why people should hire my company. She gave me a very fair quote and worked with me until I was happy, always answering my questions quickly and honestly. Jade hit the nail on the head with a slogan and a modern looking logo that represents me & my company very well. I would highly recommend Jade to anybody who wants to work with a skilled & friendly individual. Thank you so much Jade!
Those of us involved in Fluoride Free Lethbridge, a volunteer organization, appreciated working with Jade. She came to us because artificial water fluoridation was an issue she wanted to see stopped. Instead of just talking about the problem like most people, Jade committed herself with the talents and skill set she had.
She offered to replace our antiqued website with one that was contemporary, informative, and user-friendly at no cost to us. We received her generosity with much gratitude.
Jade had to sort through the old website to determine what was worth keeping and what should be archived, and how best to present that information for optimal exposure. She willingly spent a lot of time and effort on our project pro bono.
After designing the website, Jade was readily available to help the person who took over management of it. He was very thankful for her assistance.
I would recommend working with Jade on your website projects because she listens to you and hears what you’re saying, can translate ideas into reality, is creative, and is interested in the world around her. There are no boxes. Every page is a canvas for Jade’s creativity.

“Aside from a well built website, one particular thing with Jade that stood out was her quick response when we needed some direction long after she had finished our project.”
He was very thankful for her assistance.
The great thing about Jade’s work is that you don’t have to hand hold her as a designer. She asks the right questions and is able to come up with really innovative and unique designs. But further than that she understands marketing and what the consumer is looking for. Her work is not run of the mill. If you want unique, someone who understands marketing and is very fast I high recommend. Also as a marketing coordinator she kept me organized and knew exactly what had to be submitted when.
I have been working with Jade on my new website… Wow… She keeps her promises, provides great feedback and is ahead of schedule!
We recently updated our website with Jade Stevens. Jade was great all the way through with her professionalism and experience. I highly recommend Jade.
Jade is a topnotch graphic/web designer and marketer, who is also very genuine, honest and personable. She is super creative, detail oriented, and understands her clients and their business needs. I have really enjoyed working with her over the last 4 years and give her my highest recommendation.
Jade is a very talented designer, she is both creative and efficient! Jade takes the initiative to go above and beyond your expectations.
Jade is an amazing artist to work with. Very creative, great under pressure and amazing personality. She adds fresh ideas and pushes the envelope in design.
Jade is a talented designer and a delight to work with. She’s very creative, has a “can do” attitude and works within required timelines. And, she’s a really great person.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jade not only because of her professionalism but she’s very easy to get along with and approachable. She’s not only fast, efficient and concise; she consistently goes the extra mile while remaining on time and on budget. I find it very reassuring I always know what to expect working with Jade and would recommend Humble Bee Design to others.
Jade is a real professional who produces high quality results for all of your design and marketing needs! The first time I worked with Jade was to completely redesign the POMCAR customer checkout process for my website to make it much more seamless and intuitive for users. I gave her little to no guidance and she took the initiative to design each checkout page so that the customer knows exactly where they are and has the confidence to proceed with a transaction. She greatly improved the customer experience resulting in more than 50% fewer cart abandonments!
Jade then worked with me to produce company business cards to to promote brand awareness among partners. She not only produced cards that convey the brand and service succinctly but she suggested we use a tactile card to leave a better first impression! I never would have thought about the “feel” of a card as an option but her thoughtfulness went the extra mile.
Most recently Jade created Facebook brand awareness ads for POMCAR. She guided me toward creating ads that resonate with prospective customers to get them excited about using POMCAR. Initially, I had proposed designs that were too corporate and Jade knew to suggest ones from a customer POV. She really gets it and I would not hesitate to use her again. I whole heartedly recommend Jade for all of your analog and digital designs!
Jade strives to be the best from the initial concept to the finished product. Intelligent, honest and open to any ideas. Jade is a detail oriented designer who strives to envision the goals of her clients. Easy to work with, super creative.
Jade has become a consultant, a teacher and I consider her part of my professional team.
Jade from day one brought ideas, an interest in learning about the complexity of what I do and the many things I do and embraced all tasks with interest and enthusiasm – yes she supplies motivation as well, many, many days for me.
From managing my charities’ website, my personal website and helping with my corporations’ website. She also communicates with the other team members to ensure all our social media is on time and relevant and that she is kept updated with any new direction I may be having or ideas I am thinking about, so that I don’t have to repeat myself with They become my Think Tank! This is what I call team work. They work together to make my life, the client, easier, simpler and accomplish allot!
Oh, and another thing I appreciate about Jade, is that she gives me a checklist after our weekly meetings of things I need to also do!
Almost 2 decades ago I had the honour of working with Jade, hands down, she is one of my favourite designers/idea makers out there! ever boring, never static, always a step ahead of the game! I appreciate you Jade, and how your mind works. You are one of a kind!
Jade Stevens has been my website developer, creative think tank, glitch fixer, problem solver, idea sounding board and marketing team member for ~5 months now. She has proven to be indispensable. I have come to count on her honest feedback on our products, look, language and even market strategy. She is skilled and quick to pull in others when a project goes out of her scope. I appreciate her calm, professional demeanour and always look forward to our weekly virtual meetings!
I worked Jade for just over a year and it made a huge difference in my work/life balance. Jade was easy to communicate with, on time with tasks and proactive and generous with her work. I highly recommend Jade for marketing, consulting, websites and graphic design.
Jade is attentive to details, has a great sense of integrity and is a really great person!
Especially pleased with the graphic design work by Jade!
Jade and Dana and worked together with me like we were all in the same room. They helped me with my rebranding, creating a new lead generating website and social media postings. I’m grateful for their commitment and doing such a good job for me!
Humble Bee Design and Jade Stevens took care of me from the start while making me feel valued. She is a very good communicator who went the extra mile and stayed on budget and on time. She is fast and efficient but not at the expense of the quality of work as not only met but exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed working with Jade and would again in the future.
