Hello! I’m so happy we found each other

I’m proud to work with visionary coaches, ambitious creatives and educators who are ready to embark on a journey of discovery and take their business to new exciting places.

If you’ve got burning questions, these may have been answered in the FAQs section. If not, feel free to ask away.

Fill in the form below to apply to work with me and tell me more about you, your business and your hopes and dreams.

I’ll get back to you within 24-48 hours to send you more information and how to book in for a call to start concocting a plan for all the brand magic we can conjure up.

Your burning questions

Can you just design me a quick logo?

To be absolutely honest, no. There is a really good reason for this and it’s actually to help your business. This is where you really need to think about the bigger picture of your business and your brand.

Your brand is about so much more than just the visual stuff and your logo. Your brand is all about the experience you deliver and everything you do in your business, so a logo alone isn’t going to cut it. 

You can read more about the reasons why a logo alone won’t be enough to attract your dream clients in this blog post.

Should I invest in custom design if I'm new to business??

I don’t believe that every business should invest in custom design. It’s a big investment so I always want to make sure that you will be able to see a return on investment.

I recommend custom design to those that have been in businesses for at least 1 year and that have a clear understanding of their offerings and audience.

Do you offer bespoke quotes?

Absolutely, yes. If you don’t need everything listed in my packages, I’m more than happy to jump on a call and chat through a more bespoke offer.

How much will my branding cost?

If you pick one of my packages, this should act as a good benchmark on which to base the expected cost of your branding. If you do need package additions or anything extra, these will of course add to the price. Just get in touch if you have a more custom idea that will need custom pricing to match.

Can you help me with my website design too?

This is music to my ears! I love providing clients with the complete branding and website package and I’ll be happy to help you on this. You can find out more about the website design services I offer here.

How does payment work?

As a standard method of payment, I will need to take a 50% deposit payment on booking in your project and then the balance 50% payment on completion of the project. If you’d prefer to set up a payment plan, I offer flexible options which can be spread into up to 6 monthly payments. If you’d like to opt for an instalment plan, please just ask. My aim is to make paying for your project as simple and achievable as possible as I know it’s an investment that’s 100% worth it.

When can we get started on my branding project?

My availability to start new projects varies depending the number of current clients I have, but I typically book 1-3 months in advance. please bear in mind that most projects take 1-3 months to complete depending on their complexity, but also depending on your availability to have feedback calls and complete the tasks necessary for you for the project too.

What is brand strategy?

Brand strategy is a long-term plan designed to position your business where it needs to be. It’s about looking at your business and goals as a whole and seeing your branding as soi much more than just a logo. It’s about establishing both short/long terms business goals to help you achieve success. I define brand strategy as the things you can’t see, but can feel and expereince about a brand.

How do I book you for my branding project?

Get in touch and we can then book in for a discovery call to chat through your ideas, your goals and what your business really needs. I will create a bespoke proposal and once you are happy, contracts are signed and  the initial payment is made I am then all yours to get started on your branding project.

Why is branding so "expensive"?

Well, I suppose this depends on what you would see as expensive. It might be about your priorities. We work with ambitious businesses who want to get online, get seen and grow. This will mean that they may not have the time or the expertise to design and build a brand that coverts for their business and their time is better spent on growing their business and the things they actually love doing. A question right back at you… Which do you value more, your time or your money? If it’s your time, then we’d say you’re more likely to be happy to invest in a website designer to build a site using their expereince, expertise and knowledge. If you value your money more, then that’s where the option of DIYing your site is most likely the best option for you.

I offer bespoke payment plan options to make investing in your website much more manageable and accessible.
