The Fast-Track Brand Kit: What You Get in a Week
We regularly work with large organizations over weeks and months to develop customized visual identity systems and visual content. It’s a system that lets a brand ‘level up’ its presence with remarkable efficiency and effectiveness.

HOW TO GET STARTED
Get started by booking a 20-minute spot on our calendar for a discovery call. If we both feel there’s a good fit, we’ll book your first session(s), and send your contract for review and an invoice for payment.
You can choose to complete your project in a full-day (7-hour) session, or in two parts (3.5 hours each). In both cases, this time is about YOU and YOUR BRAND, so we’ll ask you to block off that time. You’ll work with our Project Manager to set up times and you’ll make payment.
Following payment and booking of your work sessions, we’ll send you a little ‘pre-work’. Don’t worry, it’s all stuff you already know about your brand–and should take you no more than 30 minutes to complete.
Whether you’re meeting for a full-day or two half-days, we’ll kick off with a roughly 1-hour Zoom Planning Session to get on the same page, review your brand and goals, and ensure that your branding is moving in exactly the direction you’re dreaming of. We’ll then get to work on your branding and check in with you throughout the session(s) to ensure we’re on track.
At the end of the session(s), you’ll have your fresh, online-optimized branding in hand. You’ll receive full access to a beautiful, functional Brand Style Guide with your logos, fonts, colours, and social templates all captured in a handy Canva file — making it easy for you, and/or anyone on your team, to create absolutely on-brand, consistently impactful designs and content for your business. Plus, you’ll receive a fully branded Google Doc with links to everything you need. (BONUS: It’s easy to copy the formatting of this Doc for future on-brand uses!)
