Every decision you make in design matters: every combination of letters, every stroke of your pencil. Together, all of these little decisions tell a story—they evoke a feeling or connotation, whether intended or not. Carefully detailed sketches tell a different story than swift abstract strokes. Old style serifs connote a different time and era than slab serif typefaces. There is a historical context behind every detail... a lexicon of visual design that adds layers of richness, character, and meaning. That's why I'm passionate about purposeful design. Through every detail, your design IS conveying a message, whether it's intentional or not. What a valuable opportunity to take ownership of that message—to make it something purposeful, meaningful, and significant to both you and your ideal client.
There's no doubt about it: re-branding is a big investment. Financially and emotionally. It's not easy to entrust part of your hard-earned business (and hard-earned income) to someone else. But I want you to think about what that investment could do for you. With a polished brand design, could you... Book enough new clients to see a return on your investment? Could you elevate your brand perception among peers who refer you? Could you impress your current clients—and expand their referral rates? Maybe you could stop trying to tell clients how valuable you are... and show them instead. Maybe it's possible to book a calendar filled with projects that excite you. Could you consistently attract not just any client—but your dream client? The answer to all of these questions is a resounding YES. When your brand is rooted in intentional design strategy, the return on your investment is so tangible. I love hearing past clients report that their income has increased after working together... or that they've been able to consistently book dream their clients, even at a higher price point. Because brand design must be purposeful. ✨ I consider it such a privilege and an immense responsibility to be entrusted with your brand design. I pour my own heart into every project, because I know that's what you and your business deserve. There's nothing more rewarding to me than seeing that tangible growth come to life for you and your brand!
I have a Design Chapter opening for February if you're seeking a new brand to serve you well in 2020! ✨ From one small business owner to another... We both know how much you've sacrificed to build your business. It's an honor to be entrusted with your brand, because I know what lies behind it. My goal is to help make you make the most of all those hard-earned lessons and over-caffeinated late-nights... to give you an elevated and polished design that speaks to the quality of your work. To help you convey your level of expertise and service to your dream clients. You've earned it. You deserve to put your best foot forward in 2020 and beyond. If you decide to invest in custom design, I want you to walk away with full brand toolkit that can serve you well for years to come.
