Intentional Branding

Branding is the visual expression of the heart behind your business... a story that can't be told with a templated design or a generic solution. It should be distinctive, strategic, personal, and memorable. Is yours?

for creative entrepreneurs

Feeling stuck in your brand?

Maybe you've outgrown that templated logo design that helped you get started...
Maybe your current logo isn't conveying the high-end quality of the services you now offer...
Maybe you're realizing it takes a full brand toolkit (not just a logo) to really impress the clients you want to attract.

Your ideal client has changed. Has your branding changed to appeal to them?

If not... let's fix that!

... to express the heart of your brand with visual design? To communicate who you are at just one glance? To elevate your business with polished designs that add value and impress your ideal clients?

what would it feel like...

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

I believe each brand design should be distinctively crafted, and intentionally strategic. At the end of the day, your brand should make your business feel irresistible to your ideal clientele.

Let's design a brand that feels utterly irresistible to your potential clients.

After you've signed the dotted line on your Proposal and Contract, you'll receive a Brand Questionnaire as "homework" prior to your Design Phase.

The Brand Questionnaire serves a twofold purpose: it will help me achieve a better understanding of your brand... and it will also be a helpful resource for you to reference as your brand evolves over time.

Process

Reserve your design chapter

There's no doubt about it: re-branding is a big investment. Financially and emotionally. It's not easy to entrust part of your hard-earned business (and hard-earned income) to someone else.

But I want you to think about what that investment could do for you.

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?

Why invest in custom brand design?

Yes.

If you want to bring your branding to the next level—Sarah Ann is THE person to contact. Her work is impeccable and she took the time to understand our narrative and branding needs—enabling her to deliver a package so comprehensive and close to our vision that it was almost as if she plucked it from our minds! We're already lining up more work with her for next year, and we cannot recommend her highly enough!!

– Monica, Lettering by GRG

Hiring Sarah means hiring a designer to create brand elements that truly speak to the heart of your business. She took the time to learn about the big picture vision behind my blog and our in-depth conversations have revealed even more exciting goals for my brand's future. Not only is Sarah a talented artist and creative—she is an organized, driven, passionate business owner who deeply cares for her clients and their businesses. I recommend Sarah Ann Design to any and all who crave a gorgeous, cohesive brand!

– Steph, Farewell Travel Co.

Sarah was such a joy to work with and created gorgeous branding elements for my wedding planning business. She listened to what I wanted and got to the heart of my brand to deliver items that felt like a true representation of me and my business. I was super impressed with her professionalism and quick turnaround times. Sarah, thank you so much and I highly recommend her to anyone!

– Brooke, Stellaluna Events

After working together, my clients have reported:

"I finally have an elevated style to match a higher-end clientele."
"Great feedback from everyone who has seen it... including new clients who booked right away!"
"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!"

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?

There's no doubt about it: re-branding is a big investment. Financially and emotionally. It's not easy to entrust part of your hard-earned business (and hard-earned income) to someone else.

But I want you to think about what that investment could do for you.

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

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

"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!"

Investment begins at $2800

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. I pinky promise: I will do my best to make your investment worth every penny! 

Do you offer smaller packages?
In an effort to keep your brand design as cohesive as possible, I am currently only offering a full brand design experience (not individual logo designs). After our initial Consultation Call, I will send over a custom proposal based on your needs.

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.


commonly asked Questions:

Branding

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. 



WEB FAQs →

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.


commonly asked Questions:

Website

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!

from one small-business owner to another...

"I am so in love with my new branding created by the one and only Sarah Ann Design! Sarah is amazing and creates something so unique to her clients, after taking the time to get to know them and the heart behind their business. She hand-calligraphed my initials (my absolute favorite part of my new branding items) and created so many beautiful touches throughout my branding suite—from logos, letterhead, icons, and more! I could not be happier with my experience."

– Laylee Emadi Photography

"I have just finished working with Sarah for my new brand design and I am so blown away by the experience. The design is beautiful, and I really felt like she knew me better than I knew myself! Her turn around time was remarkable and I received FAR more files/variations of each element of the design than I ever expected. It was a wonderful experience (my first time working with a designer!), and I cannot recommend her enough!!"
