"Elissa is AMAZING. I couldn’t have been happier with the process and end result. She created a beautiful logo design, website, and supplemental brand assets for my wedding planning business. All of which far exceeded my expectations. She had really quick turnaround time with all drafts and revisions, and always made me feel as if she truly cared about my business. I never felt like I was just another project with her. I can’t rave enough about my experience with Elissa and highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with company design elements."

What to Expect

We are a well oil-machine. After over 25 years of building our creative muscles and nearly a decade working in the hectic environment of live online events, we’ve got our workflows down. As with most things, consistency is key, so we follow the same structure for every project, regardless of size or scope. And not only do we know exactly what needs to be done and when, we also know what you need to do. We’re so ready to reign in the chaos of all that brand research and Pinterest boards and expertly craft an impressive brand identity and website for your business, and most importantly, your people!

 

1. DISCOVER

I begin every project in the same way; by consulting and collaborating with YOU. We'll discuss your business, your goals, your vision and get to know each other. This is a perfect time to ask me any questions you may have. I'll create a tailored project proposal after our chat and you can sign off on it and submit a 50% deposit to reserve your spot on my calendar.

2. STRATEGIZE

My first step in the creative process is always to get inspired through research. I'll review your homework and Pinterest board, and do a bit of my own research on everything that may be relevant to the project and your business. All of that will be distilled and compiled into a comprehensive strategy guide, including the visual direction for your brand. The goal for strategizing is to make sure that we're both on the same page before moving forward.

3. CONCEPTUALIZE

Once we're certain that we're in sync, I'll get to work on creating a complete brand design concept. I understand that it can be hard to visualize what an entire brand will look like from a handful of rough logo ideas. So instead, I'll deliver a single, fully fleshed out concept that will showcase how your logo, mark, color palette, and typography will work together using mockups (such as business cards, social media, product packaging, etc.).

4. REFINE

After I receive your feedback on the brand design concept, we'll work together to refine it to perfectly reflect your brand's ethos. This usually does not take more than two rounds of refinement. (Any refinement beyond two rounds will be billed hourly) Then I'll craft your brand style guide that will fully define the visual identity for your brand and serve as the master brand design reference for your business.

5. CRAFT

With the final approved brand style guide by my side, I'll get to work crafting every asset you need to make your business thrive, whether it's business cards, a social media graphics suite, a custom Squarespace website with an e-commerce shop, or everything but the kitchen sink, that will all happen at what feels like the very end. But don't fret, I'll share my progress with you so you have time to request any minor alterations that may come up.

6. LAUNCH

Aaand we did it! Everything is in place and your brand identity is out there sharing your business with the world and attracting people who share in your business' ethos. I'll write about the creative process behind your brand right here on the blog and spread the word about it across social media. And of course, if there is any other work that I can help you with in the future my digital door will always be open!
