BRAND IDENTITY + CURATION
for meaningful creative businesses
Your brand identity should tell your story.
BRAND IDENTITY DESIGN
For brands who are going places.
You’ve established an amazing small creative business but your brand has evolved and your current branding won’t get you where you’re heading. You’re ready to start attracting your ideal customers and to amplify your presence in your industry with a cohesive, aligned, and authentic brand experience.
Prices tailored to individual projects.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MULTIPLE CONCEPTS ARE PRESENTED
If you’ve worked with another designer in the past they most likely presented multiple options and variations of a design concept. Although it’s sometimes nice to see how a designer has translated your vision, this approach can lead to clients choosing based on personal preference and losing sight of their target audience, or trying to infuse elements into one.
How the one-concept method differs is that it flips traditional industry rules around to allow for a more thoughtful and in-depth design experience. (Shout out to Jamie from Spruce Rd. for inspiration on this proven design approach.)
WHY I USE THIS METHOD
The end goal is to have a brand aligns with your business and values and ultimately builds trust. The one-concept method allows me to create a long-lasting and effective brand by applying all of my skills, expertise and years of experience designed for your target audience. It includes a much deeper clarity, strategy, and discovery phase that results in one comprehensive, well-rounded, and refined design solution. It also makes your life easier because you can keep focusing on taking care of business.

CLARITY + STRATEGY
We (you and I — this is a collaboration after all!) set up a solid foundation for your project by kicking things off with a questionnaire, followed by a project clarity consult call so that I can get to know you and learn about your target audience. This helps me design with them in mind.
I research your business and industry to gain a thorough understanding of your target market & competition and do a whole lot of design groundwork. I’ll present you with a one-page creative brief as well as a moodboard to ensure we’re heading in the right direction before I even put pen to paper.
DESIGN + PRESENT
With an approved creative direction, I apply all of the groundwork and sketch, design & refine to create a custom identity for your brand. I then present you with one well-rounded & strategic design concept and walk you through the rationale. You review the concept artwork and provide feedback to keep the project moving forward.
Once the revised concept is approved, I move forward with the design and apply the aesthetic to the remaining brand elements, making sure your brand is consistent across all platforms.
Once you have approved the final designs and proof-read all of the branding elements, I prepare and package up all of your final design files to prepare them for print or digital. You now have a cohesive & aligned brand identity and we can move on to your website!

The final product is exactly what I envisioned, thank you for bringing it to life. I look forward to working together on future projects and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

– SARAH HOLMES, SARAH HOLMES MAKEUP
What I liked most about working with Kate was her collaborative approach, eye for detail, professionalism and cool edge. The most difficult part of the process was deciding on the logo style, making sure it evoked the right feel for my branding. Kate made it easier by refining the options and really listening to my feedback. It was a great experience having Kate design my logo and business card. I’m very proud to showcase my new brand now and love that she also does a follow up on her service.
– ARIELLE RALPH, ARIELLE RALPH INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE
Kate understood my vision immediately, elevating my initial idea into a complete concept in line with my brand & aesthetic. She completely transformed my business & its presentation. I have a complete style guide to reference, which was so thorough I still haven’t used all the concepts within it. Due to my lack of technical prowess, I was confused how to access the individual concepts within the style guide. However, all I had to do was shoot a quick email and this was resolved. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kate. Her ability to conceptualise as well as her versatility being two standout qualities.
