When story meets strategy
one-of-a-kind brands are made
Your brand is so much more than a pretty logo. It’s the story of who you are. It’s how you make your customer feel. It’s home.
We can tell you first-hand how defining your brand story can help your business thrive. We know what it means to create a brand that feels like home not only for our clients but for ourselves.
Aside from your obvious creative flair, I just loved the "realness" and down to earth approach you have. It made me feel comfortable too, to know that you genuinely have your clients best interests at heart.

You can start by filling in our contact form here (hyperlink to contact page) so that we can find out a bit more about your project. We’ll send you more information about our packages and process and then we’ll set up a 15 minute call either over the phone or Zoom.
During our call, we’ll ask you about your business and what you’re looking for and you’ll have the chance to ask us questions to see if we’re the right fit for your business and brand.
Once you’re ready to move forward, we’ll through our proposal, invoice (50% deposit required) and design contract to get your project started.
We use Trello to manage all our projects and setup boards for us to work on together at the start of each project.
Discover | We believe in building a brand from the inside out to tell your unique story, so we start every project with brand discovery session. We’ll talk about who you are and what you do, your mission and values, who your ideal client is, your competition and what make you unique.
Strategize | Next, we’ll put together a visual strategy that outlines your brand attributes, voice, and target market. We create a stylescape – or moodboard – that sets the style direction for your brand.
Design | Using the visual strategy we’ve created, we start on concept development. We love this stage of the project as we get to sit down with pencil and paper to create 2-3 initial concepts for your logo. Your concepts will be presented through as a PDF presentation, where we’ll talk through each concept and narrow them down to the concept we feel works best for you.
Refine | Once we’ve decided on the design direction, we’ll work through 2 rounds of changes, playing with various options and finding the design solution that best represents your brand.
Brand Collateral | Now it’s time to take your new brand identity and bring it to life. Depending on what you need, we’ll take your new brand identity and design your brand collateral, print media and social media graphics, and wordpress website.
Timelines vary depending on the project, as well as the client’s response time. Our branding projects take around 4-8 weeks, depending on the package you have chosen. We are usually booked out a month or more in advance, so we suggest booking in your project 3-4 months before you’d like to launch. If you’re on a tight deadline let us know and we’ll see how we can work with you.
Unfortunately, we don’t just design logos. We take all our clients through our brand discovery process before working on their logo and identity design. Our design process is built around these discovery sessions which are essential to building a one-of-a-kind brand identity for you.
We work with our web developer to build your wordpress website. We work closely with you both to make sure that the build runs smoothly. Every client goes through a handover process once your website has launched so that you are able to maintain and update your site with ease.
Yes! A brand shoot is something we recommend to all our clients – and insist on if we’re working on your website together. They play a big part in building your visual story, showing your product or services and for creating unique content for your social media and website. We can recommend a photography who’s style best suits you and your brand.
We would suggest if you’re not comfortable with words that you work with a copywriter. We are always happy to recommend a copywriter from our network of collaborators.
For our South African Clients, we will invoice in ZAR and ask for payment via EFT. If you are an international client then you will be invoiced in USD and payment is accepted via PayPal.
