Making a great team! First there needs to be an introduction and sharing of information to make sure that we are a good match. After review and consideration of your initial inquiry, we will schedule a phone call. I will ask you a few questions about your business and your vision for it, desired goals for the development of your brand, and I can also answer any questions you may have. This process will give us both a chance to get to know each other and help us confirm that we will make a great team.
If we feel that we are a great match after the Consultation process, I will assemble a formal proposal for our project and send it to you for review. If the proposal is acceptable and approved by you, please approve via email and keep a copy for yourself. At this time I will request that you also please send the first payment (check or credit card), holding reservation of your spot in our upcoming work schedule.

I will now give you a little bit of homework to help prepare for our project. I will send you my branding questionnaire so you can answer some important questions, to help me better understand the details of the project prior to the start date. This questionnaire will be a resource of valuable information to me as we move through the entire branding design process.
Now the fun starts with the exciting design process! The first step of the branding process is the creation of an inspiration/mood board, which represents the elements that will be used in your design. I will review your questionnaire and create a color palette along with style and inspiration pieces that will set the overall theme of your new brand. You will receive this inspiration board within approximately 7 business days of your project start date, and will have a chance to review and request up to 2 rounds of revisions until you are in love with the direction.
After we establish the components and finalize the inspiration/mood board, I will begin creating your new brand. The logo design process can take approximately 10 to 15 business days to complete. You will receive a few unique logo concepts, all designed based on the information gathered in the initial stages and the approved inspiration/mood board. You will have the opportunity to review and request up to 2 rounds of revisions, until you are thrilled and excited about your new logo design!
Finalize & Deliver
This is where it all comes together! We now create your Branding Style Guide! We will bring in your awesome new logo, color palette and inspiration photos, and also add in your sub mark, logo variations, patterns, and any other elements into a full branding guide format. Once your final payment has been made, we will package up your files including your Branding Style Guide and send them to you via Dropbox link for downloading.
