IF YOU NEED YOUR BRAND
TO WORK AS HARD AS YOU DO...

When you've got an original idea and sheer motivation, it’s tempting to catapult your business onto the internet and hope that people buy. But with a clear brand story and a consistent look, you'll build an imaginative experience and attract customers who loyally support your dreams.

tell me if this sounds familiar...

 

You wake up in the morning and scroll through social media only to feel like it's all been done before. You know that you have something amazing to bring to the table, but feel like you're constantly having to explain what you do or negotiate a sale. You're ready to roll up your sleeves and leave your mark on the internet, but just need some help along the way

Our Process
 

 

STEP ONE: DISCOVERY

The first step of your project begins with an in-depth analysis of the current state of your business, and your goals for the future. Through a set of self-discovery exercises in your digital Discovery workbook, you will identify your immediate and long-term goals, which we use as a foundation for your brand message. This message will influence all aspects of your design, and is a crucial step to help us understand the heart of your business. 

 

STEP TWO: STRATEGY

Once your discovery is complete, you will have a strategy meeting with our brand director and studio owner in order to establish the creative direction for your project, answer any questions, and establish exactly which elements you will need to complete your brand look.

 

PHASE Three: DESIGN

Once we have established the direction and goals for your project, your team of designers will start designing your new look, where we will visually conceptualize the ideas discussed during the discovery process and create two original logo concepts to visually represent your message.

 

PHASE FOUR: REFINE

After a logo concept is selected, we will begin to edit, revise, and refine the design to reach a final outcome that speaks to the heart of your business and your vision for the future.

 

PHASE FIVE: reveal

And finally... it's time to reveal your new look! With a comprehensive Brand Style Guide, you’ll be able to confidently showcase the new visual message of your brand and take your small business into the future. You'll also be invited to bring two guests to a launch party reveal to showcase your new brand to your online audience!

FAQ

why do you have an application?

We only work with a select few brands each month so that we can give our full creative energy to brands we truly believe in! This means that we want to know as much as possible about your business so that we can make sure it will be a good fit for our studio. 

I need a website. can you help me?

Our studio has decided that our best contribution is in brand design, so we've stopped doing in-house websites. However, we have an amazing partnership with Meg Summerfield Studio and have exclusive Drop Cap prices to offer our clientele! We've worked on multiple websites with Meg, which you can see here, here, here, and even here!

what about packaging and collateral?

As your brand has ongoing design needs, we will help as we are able! Collateral, campaigns, and custom projects will be accepted on a project-by-project basis dependent on our current availability.
