Graphic design and visual branding for entrepreneurs and businesses according to BRAND BOXES, an easy 9 step approach

Are you fed up
with feeling invisible
in the marketplace?

I will help you get
your message across
in a consistent and
compelling way!

Who are you?

You’re a solo-entrepreneur or business owner. You’ve been in business a while and you’re at the stage where you’re able to make investments to grow your business. You know that you want to invest in your branding to get to the next level. And you understand that it’s your job to focus on the core of your expertise and delivery. You’re ready to hand over your visual branding and graphic design to an expert.

What are your challenges?

You’ve been doing so much yourself for so long, that you might have trouble relinquishing control of the design process and all of the minute details that you’ve been dealing with yourself up until now – from creating your own website or business card to even developing your own logo and company colors.

What do you need right now?

What you need right now is to see that in order to be perceived as professional and serious, you must look professional and serious to your potential clients or customers. It’s time to prioritize your investment in your visual branding and make it equally important as your other business investments, such as software procurement, education and training.

What is the value of a logo?
Occasionally we read about corporations who have had a logo designed or redesigned. Often reports on the costs of design in these cases can leave us totally gaping.

Trends in graphic design
There will always be trends in graphic design, but should you follow them? Graphic design should NOT be about fashion, but about communication, authenticity and personality. Read the article

Visualize your propriatory system
Many entrepreneurs offer their own proprietary system, a step-by-step method or concept. Some of these systems are so similar that it is hard to distinguish one from the other.

Facebook Art?
The posting of inspirational quotes is very popular. I see some great imagery, where words and images work very well together. I also see expressions where they try to kill each other. Learn more…

What the customer likes.
Who is the customer, really?
