For business owners with some experience, we’ve developed the Illuminate Brand Design Package; to fill the gap between your business as it stands now and where you really want to take it.

Read below to learn more about the process and what you will receive with the Illuminate Package.


Planning

Introduction

We will have a brief introductory inquiry call where you will share a bit about you and what you’re looking for. I want to get to know you, what you do, why, and how. We will discuss what package is best for you. This is also the time that I will explain the process and scheduling availability, as well as answer any questions you have.

Vision Reset

As your business has grown, a lot has changed, and your original vision no longer applies. The first step in our work together will be resetting your vision.

We will discuss your ultimate dream for you and your business - what it is that you really want to do in your business, and how you want to do that.

Your reset vision will guide you as you step into the next chapter of your business. I will summarize our conversation and write out your vision and provide it for you in a PDF. 

Brand Audit

A Brand Audit is a thorough review of all of your brand elements – your logo, website, social media.  discussion, and strategy planning to improve your current brand and website.

I will conduct a competitor analysis, research on your target audience, and the market. I might even interview your customers and/or your team. Together, we will dive deep into your strengths, caution areas, opportunities, and risks.

After which, I develop a Brand Audit Report, which will point out your strengths and some elements that may be harming your brand, with suggestions for short and long-term solutions.

We will review your Brand Audit Report over a call, talking through your brand as it exists right now and compare it to the vision and strategy we designed. We will collaborate to decide on changes, and create a plan for you going forward. You will receive a final version of the Brand Audit Report in PDF.

Strategic Planning

Once your vision is set, you have a True North that you’re aiming for, and now you just need a plan to get there. That’s where strategy comes in.

With all of our information and analysis, we will work together to narrow down a very specific definition of your dream customers. Giving you a niche audience that will set you apart from your competitors. And we will identify channels to reach your target audience.

Additionally, we will reorganize your offerings in a clear and concise way that will resonant with your dream customer, while not spreading yourself too thin.

Your strategic plan, along with your vision, will guide us into conceptualizing your brand identity.

Moodboard

Now that we have your vision and strategy set, I will create the foundation for your brand identity – the moodboard. This might include images, quotes, color schemes, and more that will capture your brand essence. We will have a brief chat to review the mood board, and ensure alignment. Package includes one round of changes for the moodboard.

Brand Style Guide

After the mood is set, I will design a Brand Style Guide, which includes your brand’s color palette, typography set, patterns, and suggested photography.

Logo

With our genius Illustrator, Jackie, we will design a unique but simple logo, with two variations.

Your Brand Style Guide with your logo, will serve as your brand’s anchor, to keep you consistent. This package includes one round of changes for the Brand Style Guide and logo design.
