The Visual Brand Design Process
You understand the concept of a brand. You know that it’s important. You can recognize a great brand when you see one. But when it comes to getting from ‘Point A’ – a pretty logo, a few colors and maybe a font or two – to ‘Point B’ – a brand that resonates with your community, builds an audience, books clients and creates raving fans – you’re completely lost.
Creating a brand doesn’t happen overnight and your company’s branding can be fluid – as your business changes and evolves, so will your branding. The most important concept to remember is that your brand is what helps your business build relationships and create trust with your audience.
I believe in the power of simplicity and cohesivity, and I love working with clients to create a timeless visual brand design that will evolve with the organization.
.01 The Initial Consultation
We’ll hop on the phone and talk through #allthethings.
What you like, what you don’t like, where you want to go. It’s also a chance to make sure we’re a good fit!
.02 Discovery + Website Workbook
You’ll make your way through the branding workbook and pull together an inspiration board.
.03 Inspiration Board + Workbook Review
Together, we’ll walk through your inspiration board and branding workbook, just so we’re on the same page for where you want to take your brand.
.04 Mood Board
I’ll draw from your branding workbook and inspiration board to create a custom mood board.
This will be the jumping off point for your new brand identity!
.05 Logo Concepts
I’ll send over three or four primary and secondary logo concepts for your review. We’ll narrow down to one, making small adjustmens as needed.
.06 Style Guide
The style guide is what’ll help you create consistency within your visual brand.
It will have everything from your logo to brand colors to custom patterns.
.07 Brand Guide
The branding guidelines include everything else outside of your visual identity: what words to use, your ideal client profiles, what tone of voice your brand should emit, what type of content your brand shares, your brand’s vision and mission.
