About Etana H.

Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail-oriented, self-starting designer with 15 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my passion of Design with you.

Etana is a true expert and professional in her field! Besides her in-depth knowledge of Word Press and everything related to building web sites, she’s patient, kind, and fun at the same time. While I was certainly no stranger to technology, I WAS a stranger to this technology, and she was able to take me through it step by step. She’s still my go-to person for Word Press and graphics design. I highly recommend her! Chris O

I learned SO MUCH in just a short amount of time. Etana makes it SO MUCH FUN to learn and it's even more enjoyable because you're actually finally learning! Before Etana I tried a college, endless online courses (snore) and private lessons. They were all boring, not what I needed or just went by way too fast with no one to ask questions to. This experience was AWESOME! And Im SO glad I chose this Instructor out of the others. Great personality, funny sense of humor and learned alot.

I am new to blogging, and a stranger to WordPress. Once I set up my account and got a domain name, I knew I needed help. I'm also new to TakeLessons, as well as a MacBook Pro, so I was very worried about my first lesson. Truly, I had no need to worry! Etana is a wonderful teacher, very calm demeanor, and seemed totally nonjudgmental about my lack of skills. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson.

A while back, I decided I wanted to start an investing blog. The problem was, I had no idea how to do it. I knew Word Press was one of the most popular programs for building web sites, but that was about it. I was able to secure my URL and get a hosting service, but I soon learned that Word Press was not going to be something I could efficiently learn on my own. After having a couple false starts with other instructors, I found Etana, and she is fantastic. She listened to what I wanted to do, and today I have a web site, which includes a blog, and I am able to post blog articles and pictures and do many other updates to the site. My regular weekly lessons with Etana are coming to a close, but she's only a click away if (more likely WHEN) I run into the next obstacle and need some help.

My fiancé and I needed some last minute wedding announcements for our upcoming Las Vegas wedding. When I put the call out to some of my friends, I received a referral to try out Etana, and her company Society Jazz. Great decision!

After speaking to Etana over the telephone and emailing her the text info, she had 1st drafts within 24 hours! And after making a few adjustments we had our finished graphic design, and the actual paper announcements (plus personalized envelopes) shipped to our door on the 7th day!

Thank you Society Jazz for a professional and timely order. Great job!!

I came to these lessons with minimal Adobe experience. In fact, I've always gone to great lengths to avoid using Adobe, because I find it overly challenging. I like simple! Yet I also saw a growing need to get Photoshop under my belt for my various websites and business graphics.

Etana took a guy who didn't even know how to work with layers, and after a few hours of training together I was whipping out some very sharp looking graphics & images for our website. She assessed my needs and patiently walked me through the basics of what I'd foreseeably use on the projects I normally work on.

I now feel much more confident to tackle the Adobe beast. Etana is a skilled instructor. If I ever have a need for additional instruction or help with a design project I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. I highly recommend this very capable instructor! Thank you for helping me Etana. :-)

When our church needed a total website update and we had no one with any expertise or experience, Etana, very patiently and professionally walked us through what we needed, how it could be achieved, and ways to make it much more cost effective than the archaic experience we had before. Etana is definitely good at explaining technical information to a neophyte in a way that can be understood, and without making you feel unintelligent. She is a great tutor.

Etana is a great consultant. I have known her for many years and when it came time to open a graphic design studio for graphic designer wife, I asked Etana how to best go about it. She took the time to explain to me the ins and outs I would need to know in order to be the business side of the company. Mind you, I can't even color inside the lines so I leave all the design work to my wife and employees. But thanks to Etana I had a better understanding of what I was getting us into before leaping into an unfamiliar business to me.

She helped me through the process from discussed graphics, the overall look, color scheme, and details. She was there with me from start to finish. The outcome was AMAZING. My daughters invitation turned out better then I could have ever anticipated!!!!! Etana is an outstanding designer and I would HIGHLY recommend her for any teaching or design needs you may have. Don't bother looking for anyone else. She is the BEST!!!
