Hard work, insatiable energy, and your current branding got you to where you are. But when that branding no longer communicates your mission or appeals to your ideal customer, it’s time to design a bright new direction and style a bold new story — one that’s not only going to change a few lives, it’s going to change the world.
A business that isn’t quite sure of itself yet because the logo looks more DIY than polished pro (hey, no shame if you did actually do it yourself, we all start somewhere!)
An indistinct brand aesthetic that doesn’t reflect your unique personality or perspective, so you’re getting overlooked instead of booked even though you KNOW you have just as much, if not more, to offer than the businesses with the perfectly branded social feeds and websites
A collection of visual assets that feel scattered + confused instead of strategic + cohesive, so rather than feeling excited by the visual representation of your life’s work, you’re embarrassed by it
Let me guess. When you speak to someone face-to-face, your passion for what you do pours out of you like a waterfall. It’s easy for the person opposite to get a strong sense of what your brand is about and feel your excitement — and that sparks excitement in them!
But what about when you’re not in front of someone and your visuals have to tell the story for you? (As is the case so much of the time now.)
Are they telling the emotionally-evoking story of the company leading change? Or are they telling a different story, somewhere along the lines of...

In today’s distraction-filled world, brands designed with care and strategic intention aren’t nice-to-haves. They’re essentials. Brand Yourself Brightly is the perfect match for you if:
This signature process typically takes around 8 weeks, and if you’d like additional assets created or you’d like design support after the brand identity is designed, that can be arranged.
One of the most important parts of the process is giving you what you need to confidently and swiftly get your new visuals out into the world and keep everything congruent.

One the discovery stage is complete, I move on to sketching logo ideas. My job is understanding what’s the best expression of your brand’s essence, so I’m not going to give you a number of completely different ideas and expect you to know which to choose! Part of the behind-the-scenes process is creating The One logo that perfectly captures the personality and purpose of your brand in a snapshot, and then building the rest of the visual identity around it.
This essential stage allows me to dive under the surface of your brand and understand your business vision, mission, strategy, story, goals, target market, big ideas, and goals intimately. This is about depth, because that’s the only place a truly authentic brand can be built from. You need to have a clear idea of who you are, where you’re going, and who you’re wanting to connect with. I’ll do the rest.
This is a process I’ve perfected over the years so that I get the best out of you, you get the best out of me, and your ideal customers get the best out of us both! Every stage intentionally builds upon the last.
Starting a personal brand is not an easy thing to do. There's so much to think through like messaging, capturing your personality and telling your mission — all visually. Jen was the perfect partner for me in this journey. The first draft was perfect! I didn't have any changes and was extremely happy that it was ready to go and out the gate. Even after delivery, Jen has been helpful in every way.
