My Process



The first phase of working together includes digging deep in order to learn about your business and build a strong foundation for your brand. You’ll fill out an in-depth questionnaire which will help me to understand your business goals, ideal audience, style preferences, and what makes you unique. We'll kick things off with a discovery call to review everything. From there, I’ll research competitors, gather inspiration, and create moodboards that will help us determine a strategic visual direction for your brand.

Once we are aligned on a visual direction, I will get to work creating design concepts to review with you. This is where you'll see your brand come together – from the logo to color palette to typography. We’ll choose a direction and refine until you feel confident about every detail. Once the branding is in place, I'll apply it to the design of your website, marketing collateral, and any other design elements you've selected.



With the visuals finalized, I’ll send you an organized folder of logo files and assets, along with a brand style guide that will provide you with the guidance you need to maintain your new brand. I'll provide a walkthrough video so you know where to find things. If I've created a website for you, I'll also send a training video on how to edit your Webflow website. You should now have all the tools you need to confidently present your brand to the world!
