HEY, SUPER AWESOME YOU!
I CAN HELP YOU BUILD A BRAND YOU LOVE!
Branding isn't just about the pretty graphics and design, your brand should make people feel something about you and what you do. That's where I can help
How It Works...
This varies depending on the collection you select.
Step 1: Complimentary Call to See If We'd Be A Good Fit
- I'd love to jump on a call and see if we're a good fit for one another
Step 2: Contract + Invoice
- Signed Contract + 1/2 Down Required at time of booking, the final amount due at time of delivery or within 3 months of the contract date (this is due to some people needing more time to get things together for me to move forward (varies a bit based on collection/payment plans available on some collections).
- Once contract and invoice are paid then you'll receive branding homework to get started on right away + schedule our branding strategy call
- Homework is due 48 hours prior to the call
Step 3: Brand Strategy Call
- This is where we hop on the call together and I walk you through the branding process where we discover who you are, who you serve, and what your main messaging is.
Step 4: Rough Drafts
- Two weeks after our strategy call you'll have your first round of designs delivered via email. At that time any and all feedback is welcomed so I can get a really clear idea of which direction we'll be heading next. We'll continue this process a total of 3 times. Once we have a final design then we'll move onto color selection.
Step 5: Color + Final Logo Design
- Once your final design has been selected we get to move onto color where you'll be given a variety of options based on your branding boards. Seeing your design in color for the very first time! This is where it gets really fun! Once the final color options is made then we move on to your web design.
Step 6: Web Design
- If you've chosen a collection that includes web design, you'll be given assignments throughout the logo design process to work on so that once we're ready for the web design process we'll already have the elements needed to design your beautiful new website! I'll help walk you through the copy writing process with some tips and tricks to help project your unique voice.
Step 7: Party Like It's 1999!
- Once the design is completed then we'll do a final review for any last minute changes and then we celebrate with a launch party! You, me and the rest of the internet :)!
"To say I was resistant to the creative process when it came to my new business website, would be a major understatement. I DID NOT want to do it. I had tried several times in the past to explain what I do and what I offer, with little success. Well, Laurie Marie made it easy. She asked me simple, thought provoking questions and took notes to pull out the core of what I was saying.
Once we had a basic idea of what I wanted to say, she lead me through figuring out colors and the feel that I wanted. The process was easy and fun. I now have a website that I love and I know how to make the basic changes and updates. Whew! What a sense of relief to have this finished product and not feel any stress over it. Thank you, Laurie Marie!” -Vicki Garcia
IS CUSTOM BRANDING FOR ME?
Custom Branding is for you if you've got your dream business ready to rock and you need an online presence or you've been in the game for a little while and you're ready to up-level your online presence.
HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE?
The design process timeline varies depending on which collection you select. However on average the process is as followed:
- Branding Call 30min-2 hours (depending on the collection you selected)
- Logo Design Process about 4-6 weeks
- Website 2-4 weeks
- Photography session 1-2 hours
- Editing of images 1-2 weeks
Much of the timeline depends on how quickly my clients can give me feedback and returning emails. If communication happens in a timely manner then the process flows much smoother. I like to remind clients that if there is a delay in response times it could be a fear pattern at work.
DO I WRITE MY OWN COPY?
I believe it's best if copy comes from your voice. Your voice and tone add value and will attract you're ideal clients. I will help you through the process along the way but the copy should come from you. Also there are a few tricks I've learned that allow you to sound like you. Feel like you want nothing to do with the writing process? No problem, if you're worried about writing copy I've got people we can go to for help!
