Brand Blueprint

A brand is more than a pretty logo & website. The Brand Blueprint is a fast-paced, strategic process that leaves you with a clear strategy to distinguish your business, a guide for focused messaging, and a thoughtfully designed visual system.

it’s time to design a better brand

Do you feel stuck trying to decipher what branding can do for your business? There are plenty of businesses that don’t take the time to conscientiously hone a brand core — a clear mission, messaging, and strategy. Some business owners spend time and money redesigning their logo to win a few moments of attention. Their idea or product is great, but they don’t have a long term strategy. Without consistent messaging, potential clients are confused by your business. 

It’s easy to blame slow business growth on your logo design. Is it confusing? Does my audience remember my business? Many times, it’s a whole host of other issues relating to consistency in branding and connecting with your audience emotionally through messaging. When people trust and like your brand, engagement improves. Building this trust translates into healthy growth for your business. When you know your audience, marketing feels like less of a headache!

Have questions?

My clients are presented with one design concept as the solution for their brand’s visual identity. I’ve started implementing this method of brand design because I believe it results in better solutions for my clients. It helps clients to focus on the needs of their target audience, and it is energizing when they trust me to present a design solution that is attuned to their business goals.​

My branding packages are priced to include refinement to the presented concept. We will work together to address any issues and tweak the concept. If the client decides they want to pursue a different design concept entirely, we can book additional Design Day Intensives at the current rate.

In theory, a Brand Blueprint takes about 3 weeks. I book projects no less than 5 business days in advance to allow clients to complete their Discovery Phase homework. The Strategy phase is a day-long intensive that we book according to what accommodates both our schedules. The Design Phase allows for 5 business days. The Refinement Phase can be booked as one full-day or two half-day intensives. I do my best to accommodate tight deadlines, but project length can vary depending on response time and how closely we’re able to schedule the intensives.

I think I can help businesses best by providing a holistic branding process that dives deep into the heart of a business. It transforms how businesses think about the people they serve. I don’t believe a business can be accurately represented with just a logo! If that sounds like more than you need right now, have you looked at my Brand Kits?​

Branding packages require a 30% deposit to book, with 40% due before the Design Phase, and 30% due before the Refinement Phase.​

Design Days are full or half days of one-on-one design time for established brands who need to outsource marketing projects. ​
