Hello! Thank you for choosing me to be on this creative journey with you.
My goal is to create well thought out strategic visuals that will help you take your business to the next level.
I want you to feel confident sharing your new brand and be excited about the next phase in your business!
Time Frame + Studio Hours
Brand design projects generally take 4 weeks to complete and brand design + website projects take 8 weeks. So our time is limited and I ask that you commit 100% to the schedule. This means responding to emails within 24hrs and being available during your project.
I work Monday - Thursday 9 am - 4:00 pm PST and Fridays 9 am - 12 pm PST. The best way to reach me is through email: email@example.com and I do not check emails on weekends. If you have questions that can’t be answered through email please contact me to schedule a 15 min phone chat.
Please make sure your worksheets are completed before your start date or your project will have to wait until my next availability.
One of the most important elements of your website is the imagery. It won't matter how good your logo or website looks if you don't have images that reflect your brand.
Brand photos should be a top priority investment next to your brand design + website. People are visual and your images set the tone of your brand. When people see and relate to you they trust you. Which makes them want to buy from you! What you do and show in the photos should be a reflection of your ideal clients/customers. The emotions, brand colors, and environment should all attack your people.
If I am not shooting your brand photos it's important to find a photographer with the right style for your brand. Search for photographers in your area and even look on Instagram. Once you’ve found one that fits it’s good to create a short "shot list" of must-have photos. They should give you a good mix of angles with lots of horizontal shots for the website.
Make sure your photo shoot is completed before your project start date. If you plan on using stock images I will search for photos that are on-brand for us to discuss. *Stock photo fees are separate and will be applied to your final invoice.
If you booked a brand photo shoot you will receive more information about scheduling and what to expect during the first week of your project.
The Design Process
Once your project begins I’ll email you each week and let you know where I’m at in the process. It’s important to respond to emails as soon as possible (within 24/hrs or sooner) so we stay on track time-wise.
The first two weeks of your project are my “information and inspiration” time. I dive deep into your worksheet(s) and gather all the information I need to create the creative direction presentation. The presentation is then sent as a pdf accompanied with a video to explain my thoughts and choices. Once the creative direction is approved I’ll start designing the brand.
Next, you’ll receive 3 logo concepts to choose from presented in a PDF accompanied with a video to explain my thoughts and choices. Once you decide on a logo concept we’ll go over any edits and then I’ll finalize the brand identity package.
After the brand is designed I start the website design. I’ll import your content and layout the homepage and send a “live” proof to make sure we’re on the same page before I move forward with the other pages. Whether we are using your professional photos, photos I’ve shot, or stock, I will curate a selection I think works best for the site for us to discuss.
After everything is designed and the site is ready to unlock + launch I package up all of your files and send the final invoice. Once paid, I send you a link with your final files, unlock the site, and transfer ownership to you!
