Intentional branding

Branding is a visual conversation with your potential clients. It is a narrative that can't be told with a templated design or a generic solution. It should be distinctive, strategic, personal, and memorable.

Custom brand design is a timeless investment: it elevates your professionalism and makes a lasting impression at every touchpoint.

– You're seeking visual design that reflects the quality of service you provide
– You want to elevate your brand in the eyes of potential clients and industry peers
– You want to immediately connect with your ideal clientele 
– You're done with template logo designs and ready for a design you can call your own
– You feel like your brand is all over the place and want to look more cohesive
– You're not afraid to dive into the soul-searching it takes to redefine a brand
– You're ready to make a long-term investment for your business
– You gravitate toward timeless design and distinctive visual storytelling

Your design will be crafted with intention and purpose, backed by research into your ideal client's fears, desires, and perceptions. We'll uncover the differentiating qualities that make your business uniquely marketable to your dream clients. 

A brand strategy designed to differentiate.

Re-branding is a big investment. Financially and emotionally. I understand: it's not easy to entrust part of your hard-earned business (and hard-earned income) to someone else.

But I hope you'll consider what that investment could do for you:

Why invest in custom brand design?

Yes.

With a polished brand design, could you...

Book enough new clients to see a return on your investment?

Elevate your brand perception among peers who refer you?

Impress your current clients—and expand their referral rates?

Spend less time trying to tell clients how valuable you are... and show them instead?

Book a calendar filled with projects that excite you?

Attract not just any client—but your dream client?

With a polished brand design, could you...
– Book enough new clients to see a return on your investment?
– Elevate your brand perception among peers who refer you?
– Impress your current clients—and expand their referral rates?
– Stop trying to tell clients how valuable you are... and show them instead?
– Book a calendar filled with projects that excite you?
– Attract not just any client—but your dream client?

After working together, clients have reported:

“I finally have an elevated style to match a higher-end clientele.”

“I raised my prices when we launched the new brand—and I've been booking consistent new clients who don't blink an eye at the higher price point!”

“Great feedback from everyone who has seen it... including new clients who booked right away!”

Can I give MORE than 5 stars? How about 10? Sarah is simply amazing. She went above and beyond. I worked with her on a rebrand and new website. I had no idea what I wanted or where I wanted my new brand to go. I gave her a few key words and she ran with it. She made my new brand refined, yet playful and I just loved it. My new website is stunning and I can't wait for potential clients to see it. Having this custom made website will show my clients my professionalism and trust me more. I chose Sarah because of all the gorgeous work she had done for others. Her kind demeanor was a joy to work with. I'm so thankful for her creativity and ideas in bringing my new brand to life!

– Jennifer, Jennifer Bosak Photography

There are no words to truly describe the authentic creative genius behind Sarah Ann Design!! Sarah is brilliant in the way she uncovers and translates your thoughts and visions and takes it to a higher level into the most priceless and perfect branding fit just for you. Her talent is truly second to none!! The intentional thought and care that she puts into her craft is most evident in the stunning end results. I could not be more pleased with the whole process from commencement to completion. Working with Sarah has been such a godsend and has truly catapulted my business image beyond anything I could have imagined! I will forever be indebted to her kindness, patience, generosity and bestowing her stellar flair and expertise!

– Tonya, Opalus Designs

When I came upon Sarah Ann Design’s website I was so impressed with what I saw. There was something that spoke to me about the quality of her work and who she was as a person. After our initial consultation I felt even more at ease; I remember mentioning that I only wanted to do this once so whatever she created needed to be something timeless yet modern. She presented me with three branding options on the first round (all beautiful!). Sarah is professional, kind, extremely talented, goes above and beyond your expectations and most importantly an amazing graphic designer and storyteller. If you are looking for someone to help you visualize and tell YOUR story through your brand I could not recommend anyone better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you’ve created for us!

– Shanda, Flor de Casa Designs

Custom design is a big expense—is it worth the investment? 
A polished and professional brand design elevates your business; it allows you to raise your prices, quickly earning back a return on your investment. It also gives you a distinctive look among a sea of competitors, and reduces the temptation to rebrand year after year. Our clients often report seeing a return on their investment within weeks after revealing the new design.

Do you offer website design?
We are currently accepting a very limited number of website design clients. However, we have partnered with some incredibly talented website designers who can help implement your new brand with a custom website! We're happy to provide those referrals during our Discovery Call.

Do I need a custom website design?
Not necessarily! Our hope is to provide a brand toolkit that empowers you to customize any website—whether you use a template, or work with a custom web designer. Following your Brand Style Guide, you'll be able to implement your new fonts, colors, and design elements to create a cohesive online home for your brand on any platform.



commonly asked Questions

Frequent Questions

Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! All clients are automatically set up on a bi-monthly payment plan, but plans are flexible. Just one note: no final files will be released for download until payment has been delivered in full.

Which files and resources will I receive when our project is complete?
You'll receive everything you need to serve you well for years to come! Your brand toolkit includes all logo variations, sub-marks, and brand elements in every color combination and in every file format: .ai, .eps, .pdf, .png, .jpg. You'll also receive resources to help you reach full potential with your new brand elements: brand guidelines, type hierarchy, color hex codes, and launch graphics.

Do you work with new business owners? 
Absolutely! The beginning is the best place to start. If you have a clear vision for your brand, I would love to partner with you and help you launch a distinctive brand from the very beginning. 



Which website platform do you use?
I design websites using ShowIt—a drag-and-drop platform that you can easily edit and customize in the future. No code necessary!

Will you show me how to use my new site?
Of course! Once your site is ready for launch, we can schedule a video chat to show you the ropes. I'll record the tutorial for your future reference.

Do I need a ShowIt subscription to work together?
Yes, you will need to purchase a ShowIt subscription before we begin your website design. You can learn more about ShowIt here.

Will you transfer my blog posts over to the new site? 
I will work with the amazing developer team behind ShowIt to transfer your old website to your new one.


How do revisions work?
After defining a strategy, we'll start with a homepage design for you to review. If the look of the homepage is on target, we'll dive right into online development—and then build out your remaining pages from there. You will have three opportunities to request revisions prior to our launch date; after that, you are welcome to request revisions at an additional hourly fee.

What if I need professional help with web updates in the future?
You are always welcome to reach out for additional assistance... but my goal is to set you up for long-term success without having to hire a designer again. ShowIt makes it easy to complete most updates on your own (and there's an extensive log of resource articles on their website).

Can you help make some updates to my existing site?
Unfortunately this is not a service I am offering at this time. But thanks for asking!
