First, there is the DIY option and man, those templates make it look so dang easy and pretty. But the example logo is 5 letters … aaaaand your business name is 12. And did they mention you’ll need professional design software to get the best result?
Crowdsourcing seems affordable and fast. Real designers all competing to work with you. Only those real designers are trying to work with everyone, at the same time, for rock bottom prices. So basically they are churning out as many designs as possible to make as much money as possible. Probably not the ideal situation if you want to launch with a fully baked visual strategy.
Or, there’s that designer that does everything from websites, to coupons to branding ... that should be great, right! Well, maybe. Would you rather hire a generalist, or a specialist?

You’re in the right place. My process includes several checkpoints to make sure we’re on the same page. We will go over your brand questionnaire, competitors and vision before any designs are created. A direction board further illustrates our goals and where the brand is headed. If we need to pivot, we will adjust as needed before the heavy design phase.
Sure! If you just want a package design visit the services page and choose ”VIP Design Day.”
This is an investment in you and your dreams, not just another task on your list. We make your contributions much heavier at the start of the project. You give me the inside scoop into your company, your desires, and the final result. Then, I'll reach out with recommendations during every step of the process to ensure we're on the right track. A majority of customers find they have more time to focus on their business because their brand and packaging are taken care of – they're not wasting time trying to DIY or fit into a template, one-size-fits-all design.
I can help! This unique process will reveal where your current brand might be missing the mark, giving us a chance to pivot to reach your goals. Your new brand experience will give you the tools to make decisions based on your customer and product vision. No cool looking logos that don't have any substance around here.
Absolutely! Just click the items in the “add-on” section and you’re on your way. These are the projects we find clients ask for most often. We will complete the Product Perspective first, then move on to the add-on projects with our strategy in hand. You can always reach out if you don’t see something listed that you know you will need.
I completely understand. There is a lot on the line when it’s time to have your package printed. I have a few options to set you at ease. Not only do I provide print-ready files, but I also include training on how to go through the printing process including what to look for and how to ensure you get the best possible result in your printed piece. If you are still nervous, you can add the “print proofing” option to your proposal in the add-on section. We will have the printer send the proofs to me for review, ensuring the files are printed exactly how they were created. Don’t worry. I've got you.
