Freelance Brand Designer

May 2020 - Present
  • My design process begins by getting to know each of my clients, learning as much as I can about their personality, their passions, and their goals. 

  • From there, I work intimately with the client to develop a brand strategy they can implement as a long-term plan for successful growth. I start by identifying their brand values, vision, and mission, and help them discover their unique value proposition as well as their ideal client profile.  

  • The design work begins with the curation of a custom inspiration imagery board to guide the aesthetic focus for the brand. I then ideate and draft multiple logo iterations, from which the client can choose which styles they’d like to see more refined. 

  • Following initial iterations, I then adapt and further develop the design concepts in 1-2 rounds of revisions to create a cohesive and unique visual brand. This typically includes a main logo with alternates, a submark, font and color palette curation, custom patterns, and supporting icons if applicable.
