When your brand speaks to the story and the values of your business… that’s when it creates connections with your dream customers
Creative branding requires listening. Observation. And understanding.
It’s anchored in your values and speaks to your core. It creates a feeling. It communicates your message through a visual story.
But most of all, it creates a connection.

Here’s how the branding process works
Get in touch for a discovery call
A simple 30 minute conversation, where you have the chance to ask questions and I’ll ask you about your business. We’ll explore how creative branding can help you reach your goals.
Receive your proposal
I’ll put together a detailed proposal suggesting a clear path for us to work together. It’ll include a quote and a suggested route towards those all-important goals.
Once we’ve signed our contracts, I’ll invite you to go through the briefing process. This is where I listen, observe and work to uncover the essence of your business. So we can turn it into a brand you love.
Design & refine
I get to work on creating mood boards and designing the first branding concepts. After many internal iterations, these will be shared with you for feedback and review. We’ll work together to finesse and fine tune your brand.
Deliver & Share
Final logo files and brand guide; delivered. You have a beautiful brand with clear guidelines on fonts, color palette, and graphic styles to create consistency and trust. A brand you will be excited to share and build upon.

Kayla gets it. She’s solution oriented with her design skills, patient, helpful, and just is a great person to work with!”

Meet your new brand designer ?
Hi, I’m Kayla, a graphic designer, an avid traveler and a curious soul who loves to meet new people and learn about their lives.
I take a nimble approach to design. Instead of prescribing a set visual style for your business, I listen to your story and build the design around that instead. The result? A brand that is confidently yours, that speaks to your story and represents your values. Making it so much easier to grow trust in your business (and your impact too).
Those final branding questions…
What if your style doesn’t match mine?
Unlike many other brand designers, I don’t have a set style that I use in my projects. Instead, I build a unique style for each client I work with. This means that you have a brand style that’s bespoke to you, so it’ll last long after those design trends are over.
I don’t know what design assets I need… can you still help?
Absolutely! I know how confusing it can be to see these endless lists of assets. Simply book a call and we can chat about what you need.
I think I just need a logo. Can you help with that?
Unfortunately, logos might seem like a quick fix for your branding but they don’t build trust in your business. If your audience is going to be drawn to your brand, the design needs to show your story and speak to your values. This includes consistency through all areas your audience interacts with your brand including print and digital. That’s what the branding process is all about.
Do you offer payment plans?
I do. Please get in touch and we can talk about creating a payment plan that works for you.
Where can I see more examples of your work?
You can find plenty more examples of my work in my portfolio, here. Just remember, if you don’t see a design or style that fits with your business – that’s okay! We’ll be creating something that’s unique to you anyways.
