Hello, there. My name is Brett Torrey Haynes and I’m an artist, storyteller, graphic designer, editor, geek and gentleman. I’ve spent the last decade learning focused on showcasing modern makers and working with clients from around the globe.

I have a special love for WordPress and I help clients build and and manage their WordPress sites. Woocommerce is my e-commerce platform of choice, but I also have built shops on Shopify, Squarespace and Big Cartel.

Many moon ago, I jumped into the social media management game and have helped brands build their social influence by means of targeted campaigns and plain old persistence. The social media landscape has changed over the past 10 years and my clients love having someone on their team who is flexible and creative.

Looking for a new brand identity? I’ve build fresh faces for companies like Asterfield, a maker of fantastic handmade neckware to high-end hardware resellers like Island Bath. ( I built their WordPress site as well.) You can see my work on my Portfolio page as well as on Behance.

As a small business consultant, I’ve worked with makers, artists and family-owned businesses like my good friends over at SallyeAnder. (Have you seen their soaps? You need to! They’re AMAZING!)

I’d love to bring my kind and empathetic creativity to your business. Send me a note at brett@iamthelab.com and let’s set up a free consultation. Oh, and I like to blog too, so be sure to stop back by every week to see what’s new at IATL.

I have designed complete brand identities for makers and small businesses. My services include designing signage and marketing materials (brochures, event signage, stationery and business cards).

I love working with WordPress and have custom designed sites for artists, soapmakers, jewelry designers, construction contractors and vendors. From theme selection to plugins and maintenance, I’m ready to help you make create a fresh website.

Looking to sell online? I’ve worked with Woocommerce for the past 9 years and would love to help you get started. Looking for Shopify, Squarespace or Big Cartel help? I can do that too!

Looking to super-charge your social media presence? Want to build an online community for your brand? I’ve worked with makers and small businesses alike and would love to work with you too.

Artists and makers need a different kind of business support, the type that recognizes both creativity and organization. If that describes what you need, let’s work together to create something great.

Have you hit a creative wall? Need some inspiration? Just want to chat with a creative who’s kind-hearted and intuitive? Drop me a note at brett@iamthelab.com and let’s connect.

Just in case no one told you today, you are beautiful, vital and important.
Don’t let it go to your head, let it go to your heart.

Porcelain and gold looks good as a ring, doesn’t it? This is just one piece from Goutte de Terre that reminds us that wearable art is the best kind. Plus, there is zero chances that this will self-shred as soon as you buy it. We see you @banksy. Purchase at the link in my IG Stories.

  • #thatthingwhen it’s 1:40 am in Hawaii and my cranium has a marching band of ideas, worries and whimsical wackiness marching in it, so you get up and share good things like:
-
@molliebosworth who has a series of Droplet Dot dishes that need to be in my possession stat.
-
@pigeon_toe and those lights! I want to hang that right above my Cy Twombly art that I do not actually have but a boy can dream (if he was actually sleeping).
-
@katie_timson who makes vases that are so sublime they almost upstage the flowers.
-
@tom_pigeon whose collab with @vadundee resulted in a bangle that is AMAZING. See @adornmilk for details and set a spending limit for yourself so you don’t go broke and blame me when you’re covered with beautiful baubles and living in a Ford Fiesta.
-
@specksandkeepings for their Rene Overalls that are so spectacular that you’ll want them so you can twirl around until you’re so dizzy that you won’t mind the unfortunate after affects.
-
Follow these makers and tell us who’s inspiring you. And yes, promote your fine selves.
