When we wrap up our time together, chances are you will receive one, if not all, of these file types. Common questions I get from my clients are, “what are these?” and “how do I use them?” So I’m going to outline the common file types I provide to my clients and what makes each of them special. Keep in mind that file types can be very intricate, so the below is just basics that you should know as a brand manager.

I have three package options (as well as opportunities to customize) that are specifically focused on brand identity development.

One way to prepare for our Discovery Consultation meeting is to curate a Pinterest Board. The world of Pinterest can be so overwhelming and overstimulating. But on the other hand, it can be so helpful to do visual research to see what appeals to you and what doesn’t. The goal is to have between 5-10 pins per section. This gives a healthy breadth of your style and aesthetic preferences.
Think of the Discovery meeting as the blueprint of a house we are building together. In these blueprints we are drawing up, there are details we need to discuss about the material choices, the layout of the house that fits your lifestyle best, and of course the location. These are all important things to outline because the alternative is building a house without a plan. What the house would look like if we didn’t have blueprints to build from? It would have an unleveled cracked foundation, walls would not be square, and it would be annoying, dysfunctional, and even dangerous. So this first step is us sitting down together to figure out a plan that would make your brand successful.
OUR APPROACH + PROCESS
Your business is important and unique, so we have a process we undergo in partnership with you that go beyond making a logo.

That consultation includes conversations about who your audience is and what you want your reputation to be. The Discovery process is truly the key to an effective brand.
