Build Your Brand

Branding: Messaging, Visual Identity, and Copy Content

Your brand is how you stand out and its dependent on your messaging. Your logo and “look” is only a piece — and it comes out of your messaging.

Visual Brand & Web Design:

Once you’ve gone through my Messaging Intensive, you’ll be ready to work with a designer. I can help project manage this process as well as provide access to one of the talented brand and web designers with whom I partner for “look & feel” (logo creation, color palette, fonts, and web design and build) that is in alignment with your messaging and core brand.

Your investment is dependent on the designer you choose and items needed.
