Together, we work to develop and implement strategic growth plans for their brand, their online strategy, and their print and digital collateral.

A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another. If the consumer doesn't pay a premium, make a selection or spread the word, then no brand value exists for that consumer. A brand's value is merely the sum total of how much extra people will pay, or how often they choose, the expectations, memories, stories and relationships of one brand over the alternatives.

You want a strong brand, and a brand that has value, so your customers will remember and choose you over the competition, so your customers are willing to pay a premium for the quality you provide, and so they do spread the word and grow your brand value on your behalf.

I work with my brand clients to build their brand, to infuse it with value, and to leverage the quality and consistency of their products and services to create a memorable and successful brand.

Featured Case Study: Green Drop Garage

Green Drop Garage is a full-service automobile garage which focuses on environmentally-friendly shop practices and promotes itself as a friendly and sophisticated organization where the customer need not worry about being unnecessarily upsold.

The shop's owner felt that the Green Drop brand identity did not accurately reflect its commitment to simplicity, approachability, and consumer confidence. The logo was cluttered. Their website was not easily navigated and lacked tools to easily book an oil change online or complete e-commerce transactions.

Working with the owner, we took on the task of updating Green Drop's brand identity to reflect a more sophisticated, yet friendlier company with an emphasis on reducing clutter while maintaining approachability to the brand and minimizing loss of brand recognition in existing customer base.

Deliverables included a new logo, complete responsive redesign of existing WordPress website, deployment of ecommerce capabilities and online booking, redesigned business cards and customer loyalty cards, billboard advertising and handout collateral all reflecting new branding.  In addition, we deployed new labor management tools to streamline shop efficiency by restructuring existing labor management policies to use these new tools while maintaining and integrating the functionality of existing mission-critical tools and policies

Client reports continued recognition of friendliness and clarity in the new brand identity, including excellence in web design, increased conversion of visitors for online booking, reduced overhead in labor management and increased efficiency of shop staff, reduced printed materials and paper waste.

Maybe you just have a quick question; maybe you're rebranding your company. I'd love to chat with you and see if we're a good fit to work together.

All projects require some degree of customized approach. Give me a little background on the type and scope of project you're interested in embarking on, and I'll get back with you right away.
