Every business is unique, comprised of real people who bring their gifts and personality to what they do. My motivation is to identify an organization's distinct gifts and personality quirks, and help those positive elements shine.
I specialize in branding small businesses:
crafting logos and verbal identities, producing mobile/tablet/desktop friendly websites with photography that speaks to your brand values, and creating useful and striking print materials that you can use to communicate with potential clients/customers. Take a look below at some of the project spreads I've created for local businesses and notice how different each business' personality is! Read on to learn more about branding...
The Buzz on Branding
People seek a feeling of connection with the businesses and organizations they interact with -- it's simply a human thing. With the variety of options available in nearly every field, defining yours from the rest makes all the difference for consumers, clients, and donors when deciding who to choose. Brand has become an essential part of how the public identifies with the products, services, and people of an organization. Think of it as the personality of your business. How does your organization articulate that personality?
With the aid of good design, your clients can see and feel what your business has to offer, before even meeting you! That's powerful promotion. And that's what I do. Depending on the scope of your project, branding can include the visual identity and logo, verbal identity and messaging, social media recommendations, as well as developing a website that speaks to your work and print materials that convey the messages you want folks to know.
We can contract for any size project -- from sapling to sequoia -- so don't be afraid to reach out and start the conversation.

Photography for Small Business / Nonprofit Organizations
Good photographs reflect a successful brand. Images convey so much, and it's important to capture the right tone and voice in the photography you use for your website, brochures, paid ads, etc.
It's all about giving potential clients a sense of what it's like to work with you, and to reinforce for existing clients what they love about your brand. We can capture the client's experience at your location or have an off-site photo shoot that shows the mood of your practice.
