Branding for Creatives

Get a brand that matches the quality of your work

Branding is hard work, but worth it.

Branding is hard because it’s not just your logo or your website. Branding is the impression you leave with viewers after they see your website. It’s the graphics you use on Instagram. It’s in the language you use in your captions. It’s hard to get everything consistent and cohesive and it’s even harder figuring out how to accomplish that!

It is my passion to help women in their business journeys by creating beautiful brands that are both reflective of them and attractive to their ideal clients. I love hearing the stories of how businesses came to be and am honored to help those creative small businesses come to life from start to finish. Too often business owners have beautiful work, but brands that just fall short and the quality of their brand does not match the quality of their work.

Are you tired of having beautiful work and a not so beautiful or fitting brand? Let me help! My business background enables me to help clients define their target client and industry niche. My coaching process is essential to making sure clients receive brands that will stand the test of time and are truly going to attract the type of clients they want to work with.

My branding process is meant for business owners who have a clear focus for their business, but don’t know how to create it visually. It’s meant for people who are willing to invest their time and energy into developing a cohesive, timeless brand. I truly love custom branding for wedding photographers and planners and I can’t wait to hear from you!

The Full Branding Experience

$6200

01.

Brand Coaching Session

 For every client I first offer a brand coaching session via Zoom where we go through a list of topics and review a questionnaire you will fill out beforehand. I really help define your target client and niche and then work with you on how to convey that visually with the brand we create. 

the process

02.

Mood Board

Once we've defined your ideal client and niche I will create a mood board for you which is a collage of images I feel are representative of the visual brand you should have. The mood board will also include a color palette and should be an overall look and feel of your brand. 

the process

03.

Logo Concepts

Next I will create several full logo layouts for you. I will provide three to four full color logos for you to choose from at least as a starting point. 

the process

04.

Brand Board

Once your main logo is exactly how you want it I will develop your full brand board that includes your logo, monogram logos, alternate logos, a color palette, fonts, and patterns/icons.

the process

05.

Social Media Design

Next I'll create all your social media items that include an email signature, Facebook cover, and Instagram text templates.

the process

06.

Stationery Design

You'll get designs for basic stationery including a business card, note card with liner and envelope. I typically facilitate ordering for clients, but you're welcome to PDF files. When you need to restock, just contact me to get a quote to print more items OR I will give you PDFs to print on your own.

the process

07.

Styled Brand Images

For every client I create a set of custom stylized branding images that can be used in social media images, marketing pieces, your website, and more.

the process

08.

Home Page Design

Once all your social media and stationery is designed I will provide a home page layout for your website. Usually by this time in the process I have a good understanding of my client and will provide one layout and we go from there.

the process

09.

Site Design

After your home page is finalized I will design the remaining pages of your site based on the text you give me and send to you for approval. At this stage everything is a Photoshop mockup for your site. While I don't provide copywriting, I do help you structure what content will be on your site. I have referrals for copywriters if needed. 

the process

10.

Custom Link Tree for Instagram

I'll create a mobile menu for you to use as your "link tree" in your Instagram profile. Make it easy for potential clients to browse all your content and information at the click of a customized menu button.

the process

11.

Live Preview

Once all your site pages are approved in their mockup stage I will set up a live preview of your site and blog for you to browse and make sure everything looks right.

the process

12.

Instagram Images

I will create a set of Instagram images for you to use to tease your audience and get them excited about their launch! I will also provide a short video teaser of your site on an iMac for you to use on Instagram as well so users can see your site in action!

the process

13.

Launch

Yay! Once the live preview is good and ready to go we'll push that magic button and launch your beautiful new brand to the world (preferably with champagne and cupcakes)!

the process

14.

Video Tutorials & Final Files

I will create a video tutorial to show you how to navigate and make changes to your specific site. I will upload these to our shared Dropbox folder as well as your logo files in various formats and patterns.

the process

what clients say

This is the one investment you will never regret. This day and age we have such a saturated market that if we do not stand out, we will lose clients. And not only standing out, but attracting the right client.

When I stumbled upon Katie's website, I didn't care about the price, because I could tell through her website that everything she could do for me, was going to be exactly what I wanted. Sure enough, I was right.

If your current brand is not attracting your dream clients, it's time to invest in a rebrand! By fully rebranding, I have invested in my business and I know it will last me 10x longer than just a logo ever could.

joy michelle photography

If I had any regrets with my business it would be that I didn't re-brand soon enough. YES it's a huge financial commitment and investment, but it's 110% worth every penny I invested.
