The Design Process
We’ll collaborate, strategize, and start with intention. The kind of heart-led, intentional design that offers meaning to you, fuels your passion, and sings to your people. The holistic approach allows you to deeply connect you to your brand and branding assets.
Through our detailed and client-specific process we ensure that each client feels educated and empowered. We pride ourselves on working collaboratively with our clients to offer a hands-on approach to bringing your vision to life.
After you've completed our application inquiry form, we'll have a video call to meet and discuss your needs. Should we decide that we're aligned, we'll work to create your completely custom proposal and send you everything you need to secure your start date in our design calendar.
After you've said yes to working together, you will receive your client welcome kit, project timeline, creative brief, and a detailed process and plan to get you started.
03. Strategy + Concepts
This is where we work collaboratively to develop your brand strategy and research. We will ensure that we align your brand's unique story, purpose, passion, and people. At this stage, we will also develop design concepts (mood boards, direction or style concepts) or coaching goals.
04. Design & Refine
For our design clients: Once the initial concepts or mood boards are approved, we begin to work on your original designs. We will present two original concepts via a comprehensive recorded walkthrough presentation and custom PDF or webpage mockup. Based on your feedback, we will work to refine your chosen concept.
With the finalization of your designs approved, all designs and deliverables will be packaged for you. All design will be accompanied alongside training materials, resources, and guides.
Frequently Asked Questions
I'd like to start today, can you help?
We typically book our full service clients with a minimum of 3 -4 weeks in advance. Content creation project timelines may vary.
Do websites include copy & images?
Website copy is not generally included in our packages. If this is something you need support with, it can be added for an additional fee. Throughout the process, we will offer design direction and suggestions on stock imagery or photography, but clients are responsible for providing any personal imagery they would like added to the website project.
How do we get started?
The first step is to fill out the client inquiry form. We will review your inquiry and send you an invite to meet face to face to discuss your project.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We like to make working together as seamless and as easy as possible and understand that brand and web design are an investment. Because of this, projects can be broken up into 2 or 4 payments based on your needs.
Can I create a custom package?
Yes. Book a time to chat about your options.
How long is the process?
The timeline will vary based on the scope of the project details. You will receive a timeline at the time of your proposal agreement and contract. You can expect branding and design projects to last at least 8 weeks with websites ranging from 10 - 12 weeks.
Can your CEO speak at an event or teach my clients?
Our founder can lead sessions on a variety of topics including design, entrepreneurship, social media, SEO, branding & more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for booking inquires.
I just want a single logo, do you offer that?
Our approach to branding is holistic by design. Throughout the years we have found that brands that start with strategy achieve a more cohesive brand that lasts for years to come.
Following our holistic strategy, we do not offer single logo projects or branding without an alignment strategy. Our unique approach sets your brand up to align from the inside out with variety and clarity across all customer touchpoints.
How do I secure a date?
A 50% deposit secures your project in the calendar for branding, strategy, and website design projects. For single branded asset projects 100% payment is due at the time of the contract agreement.
