Branding is more than just a logo.
Branding is a beautiful complement to your sales and marketing strategies. When done successfully, it contributes to building recognition, loyalty, and trust. Your brand doesn’t directly say, “buy me.” Instead it says, “This is who I am and why I’m doing what I’m doing. If you feel so inclined to, follow along and support my business.”
Cohesive branding is well integrated and unified. You want to create an experience for your audience that is consistent across all avenues (website, blog, social media, print materials, etc.). Having a plan makes you more appealing, more trustworthy and more likely to succeed.
Let your branding be the introduction to your skills and as soon as people follow along, they’ll realize the value for themselves.
Your branding should be just as unique as you and your business.
Whether you’re just starting out or need a complete branding makeover, you’re in the right place, and I’m eager to help!
As your designer, I will guide you along as we thoughtfully evaluate you goals, purpose, style preferences, target clients, and how you want to be perceived by those clients.
After we have a clear understanding of your story, we’ll dive into creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind designs to help you stand out in your industry.
I hold my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design from Longwood University and my Master’s in Art Education from Boston University. I have years of work experience as a Creative Marketing & Web Manager and Assistant Director of Communications & Marketing. I have been running my Limefish Studio business full time since in 2012, as well as several years spent serving as a brand partner for other companies. I offer a unique set of skills that all collectively help me develop incredible brands for amazing clients like you!
To ensure my clients the highest level of service, I limit my number of branding bookings each month.
Branding is a lot of back-and-forth brainstorming. For some, it takes a week. For others, there’s a lot more stewing and pondering and the process may take 2 months. This is YOUR journey. I’m not going to rush your decisions.
I’ve been in your shoes!! Therefore, I aim to be as affordable and fair with my pricing as possible while also factoring in the realistic knowledge of the time and commitment involved in this process.
Payment may be made in full or with installments.
BUSINESS NAMING + TAGLINE + MARKET RESEARCH ASSISTANCE
Are we starting at the beginning?
Whether it’s online or in person, you ultimately only have a few short seconds to catch someone’s attention, and the right business name ensures you leave a lasting impression.
We want to create something truly unique that reflects the style, expertise, and quality of your business.
We also want your business to stand out online and be easy for your clients and customers to find you!
Everyone’s goals will be different, and research advice completely varies. Some say a business name needs to explain the key elements of your business and should only include real words. This is believed to help people relate and understand what your business is without you having to explain it. Others strongly believe the best names are abstract ones that may not be easily understood by the public, but may in fact be mysterious or help strike up a conversation instead.
I will guide you through this process with questionnaires, brainstorming and research. We we won’t settle until the perfect name has been chosen!

For some people it may take 2 rounds of back-and-forth changes, while others may need 10, and that’s fine!
