About MAI

I help proactive small-business entrepreneurs maximize their social media presence strategically using visual branding & content solutions.

Hello there! I’m Mai Arriola. I’m a Design Developer, Creative Brand & Content Strategist, & a Health and Fitness Enthusiast.

I spent over ten years of my career developing websites and designing graphics for web and social media. Taking up Computer Science, I came to dislike Programming, but that’s how I discovered Web Development and eventually enjoy Front-End Web & Graphic Design. Around 2016, I transitioned to Social Media Management because my then-employer adapted the marketing trend. I witnessed how social media became the leading platform to promote businesses. The rest is history.

But since 2012, I had dreamed of starting my own business. I’ve always known I’m meant to become an entrepreneur. The timing just never felt right. That all changed this 2020, the pandemic made me realize I need to pivot and embrace change in my career. I decided to stop letting my fears hold me back because I wanted to help and make a difference in other entrepreneurs’ life and help their businesses stand out from the crowd so they can reach their dreams as well.

It’s now my mission to help small-business entrepreneurs uncover their brand so they can build their business around their purpose. I know that to stand out online, they need effective social media content! I can help them design an authentic digital presence to reach their ideal client and audience while developing a solid strategy to scale their business to the next level.

When I am not helping entrepreneurs, you will most likely find me hanging out on Instagram & YouTube as Healthy Active Foodie, actively trying to become the best version of myself. 😉

If you need assistance in building your brand’s visual content strategy, book a Strategy Session with me.

"We are very impressed with the social media design work she completed for us. She created a total look for us from scratch with very little to work with. We appreciated her eye for detail. Her communication and completing tasks by the due dates was impressive. She was also very willing to use new platforms we introduced to her and adapted very well. We have no hesitation to recommend her to anyone requiring someone to manage their social media."

Would highly recommend to work with her!"

"Mai was our savior when we didn’t like the design of the other graphic designer. We were all stressed out because of our target store opening. Mai came to our rescue and was able to make a great design overnight. She also did our Pylon post design in just 2 hours. She is amazing!"
