Your Brand

is more than just a logo

Think of your brand as a person. They have their own personality, their own style, beliefs, reputations – hell, even their accent can shape how people see your brand.

Building a brand starts with truly knowing what (and who) it is, what it does, who it helps, and how it does things differently than everyone else.

Build your brand's story with the right storytellers.

Even if you don't think your brand needs the bells and whistles, it absolutely deserves the love. We don't just design logos; we get to know your brand and give it the love it needs.

Our Process

To keep things as simple and smooth as possible, we've streamlined our entire onboarding and creative process. Here's a brief breakdown of how we handle projects:

Inquiry + Onboarding

When you're ready to tell your brand's story, you can reach us by filling out our form, or schedule a FREE 30-minute Google Meet call. We'll ask you about your needs and goals are for your brand, discuss how we may be able to help, and answer any brand-related questions you have.

Once we've all determined that we're a good fit for one another, we'll send over a proposal and an agreement for you to sign and we'll get started!

For your convenience, we have a Frequently Asked Questions section below that may be able to answer some (or all) of your brand-related questions.

Discovery + Strategy

We will gather information about your brand's history, values, personality, target audience, and more through our Brand Discovery. This will be the roadmap for your brand's story!

We then put together some moodboards to get a better visual idea of how the brand should look. These moodboards typically have samples of color palettes, typography, photos, textures or patterns, logo styles, contextual references, aesthetics, and emotional tone.

With all of these tools in hand, we can begin the fun part...

Design + Refinements

We begin with a brainstorm session, where we all sketch out a bunch of ideas for the logo. these ideas get presented and discussed internally, and the best 3 concepts are chosen. Those concepts are then mocked up and prepared for presenting to you.

We will then meet with you via Google Meet to present and talk about each concept one-by-one. After the call, we'll send you a copy of the presentation to review on your own time, and send your feedback. Each project includes 3 rounds of revisions.

Completion + Delivery

Once we have final approval from you, we will prepare, organize, and Zip up your final files, as well as any instructions and documentations.

That’s it! you’re ready to launch your new brand.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a Brand, Brand Identity, and Logo?

Think of a brand as a person...

The brand we refer to is everything that has to do with that person – their name, face, clothing style, personality, beliefs, reputation, even their accent.

The brand's identity is the visual representation of the brand. for people, that's everything from their name and face to how they style their hair, what clothes they wear, whether they have tattoos or piercings, and other visual traits.

And the main identifier of any person is their face. The face is a person's logo. It's an important part, but it's still just a piece of the whole.

What is Brand Strategy?

Before any journey, we have to know where we're going. So, think of Brand Strategy as creating a roadmap for your brand. It's about figuring out who you are as a brand, what you stand for, who your target audience is, and how you want people to perceive you.

Simply put, it's the foundation of your brand's personality and message. It involves understanding your competition, identifying your unique selling points, and determining how you want to communicate with your audience.

What do you mean by "Revision Rounds"?

After the initial reveal, we will provide you with a PDF copy of the presentation deck to look over with any decision-makers. Assuming you have any suggestions for anything you'd like to see in a revised proof, you'll provide us with all your feedback. This can range from color suggestions to arrangement changes, fixing of typos, and more.

Once we've confirmed that we've received all of your feedback and revision requests, we will lock them in with the team and begin going over the requested revisions. We will not be able to accept any further feedback at this point, and any additional notes will have to wait for the next round.

Our design team will make all the necessary adjustments, and prepare a revised proof to send for review or approval. At this point, your first revision round is completed. We will do this cycle up to 2 more times, to make sure you're happy with the final design.

How much does getting a logo or brand design cost?

We've worked over the last few year, to streamline the process, so that we can offer agency-level design and expertise at more reasonable prices. Click here for our pricing.

How long do projects take?

Projects can take between 4-8 weeks, depending on the scope of the project and how quickly both sides are able to respond to inquiries (our average response time is 16 business hours for general inquiries, and 72 business hours for design adjustments).

Do you offer website design?

Yes, at this time, we're offering web design services either as a one-off or as part of a full brand design project. Our websites are developed using Webflow, and we manage your website's SEO, which can be accessed either as a one-time service or through our subscription model. Book a call

Do you offer photo or video services?

We don't offer any in-house photo or video services anymore. We recommend you reach out to our friends at Big Slate Media for any photo or video needs. We work with them a lot, so we can provide brand guidance at any stage of production. That way, everything stays on par with your brand.
