So you've started a blog or business... but what now? You need a brand identity that helps you stand out in your niche. You need fonts, colors & a logo. You need to know WHY what you are doing is going to resonate with your audience. You also want to maintain full creative control. You need a design studio that that will teach you the WHY behind your branding & help you bring your vision to your visuals.
Creating your brand identity can be stressful when you aren't sure how to do it or WHERE TO START.
There is so much to consider, & it can be super overwhelming. Should you start with colors or a logo design? How the fuck do you make a logo!? Don't panic... we will cover that.
The Brand Studio is a collection of 9 lessons (and 3+ bonus sections). It starts with defining your brand's heart, niche ad strategy then moves through developing visuals. It lays out your journey in steps so that you can focus on one thing at a time.
As you work through each step, you'll also learn the why. The studio is more than great tech training- it goes into detail about why you should choose one photo filter over another, why you might want to consider a serif font or why you should use circles & not squares depending on your brand identity. Picking 'pretty' colors without reasoning, rebranding every few months because it doesn't 'feel right'- these are signs that you have built your brand without stepping back & looking at the why.

This course will use a variety or programs, but is designed so that you may use whatever you have.

Several lessons also provide links & recommendations for free apps to use in the lesson's toolbox.
