When that moment comes, you just know. Something shifts, and where you used to feel momentum now you feel your back against a wall. You’re itching to raise your rates, connect with the clients you’ve (so far) only imagined working with, and take your business to new new heights – but thinking about your current brand makes you wobble.
Suddenly you’re thinking “Is that all really going to be possible with this brand that doesn’t quite feel like me, or the me I want to be, anymore?”
If you’re ready to accelerate your growth as a business owner and ditch the DIY, inviting a pro designer and strategist in is a great next move.
Delegating your brand design is one of the best ways to free you up to grow – and underscore your confidence in how you represent yourself.
Where your old brand feels like an itchy sweater or a once-loved dress now a size too small, your new brand’s your favorite outfit that helps you feel like yourself and own the room.
After you complete your inquiry, we’ll talk and decide if your needs are a good fit for the Intensive! After you book, I’ll send you a questionnaire to help dial in everything we need to know about your Intensive’s particular focus (like a mini brand identity or a website upgrade). You’ll submit all of your materials to me a week before the Intensive begins, and then we get into the design!
The specifics depend on the project we’re working on, but you’ll need all of the content ready a week before we get started. (For example, if we’re working on a website or branded collateral, you’ll need your copy and images ready to go.) If we’re working on a mini brand identity, your pre-project questionnaire should cover all of the information we need.
Your Brand Intensive takes place during a 5-day, Monday-Friday workweek, and it’s my #1 my priority that week! To keep your project moving along, you should plan to be available at least once a day to share feedback on the previous day’s work.
The Brand Intensive is meant for newer businesses to establish themselves in their industry, and can be an especially good fit for businesses that are ready to leave DIY behind but don’t yet have the resources or the need for a lengthy, highly-custom branding process. Custom branding strategy and design work is better suited to more experienced businesses ready to elevate their position in their industry and make a very long-term investment.
But rest assured – both services are high-quality and delivered with care! They simply serve different purposes.
If you’re a return client, absolutely! If I didn’t design your brand, though, a Brand Intensive won’t be the right fit. Because my design process is rooted in from-scratch brand strategy, I don’t create websites or collateral for existing brands.
