“Thank you Candice for helping me to bring the vision inside my mind out into the real world. You’ve created branding magic – it’s more beautiful than I even dreamed, and it’s infused with strategy and customer research so I know it will connect with my community. It’s been an absolute dream to work with you and I’m looking forward to seeking your wisdom and design skills on future projects.”

Here’s how it works

Preparation

We’ll get to know each other on a 30-minute discovery call. If we’re the right fit, I’ll send over a proposal, contract, deposit invoice and Brand Foundation Workbook to prepare for our time together.

Brand Strategy

This is all about creating strong foundations and clarifying the who what and why of your business. We’ll start with a 90-minute strategy call, then research your audience and competitors.

Brand Design

The exciting part – I’ll use your secret sauce to create a delicious brand identity. I’ll create your brand assets, Brand Style Guide and present your logo concept with two rounds of revisions.

Served up

You’ll receive your Brand Style Guide, logo and brand assets in a range of different formats. Just like that? You’ll have a clear and consistent identity to grow your visibility.

Follow up support

One week after the Bite-Sized branding package, we’ll have a follow up call to answer any questions. You’ll also have one hour of design refinements if needed. 

”My approach always begins with the lost art of hand drawn sketches. Then, these can be digitised or used as inspiration. I find it’s the best way to create never-seen-before visual identities.”

– Candice McGaw Hourigan, Design Salad

There’s no such thing as a silly FAQ

I’m a new business, is this a good fit for me?

Yes! A lot of brand strategy and identity packages out there will come with a hefty price tag, drawn-out process and be far to in-depth for businesses that are just starting out and finding their feet. By condensing it down to two days, you’ll get everything you need to start your business on the right foot.

How come you can get brand strategy and design done quickly, which would otherwise take weeks?

Great question, because I never want the tight timeframe to reflect the quality. When I work on longer projects (like my custom branding package) I dive deeper into their strategy and give clients more time to provide feedback and revisions – sometimes it takes weeks. By booking my Bite-Sized Branding package we’re condensing the process. It’s perfect for those who need a starting point for their strategy, think quickly and enjoy exclusive 1:1 contact.

Can I make extra changes after the final feedback?

I won’t deliver your work and ghost you (phew). One week after our Bite-Sized Branding package, you’ll have the option for a follow up call to ask any questions or voice your concerns. I also include one hour of refinements if you need it (although most of the time, my clients are ecstatic with what I create first go).

Do you design business cards and other print and digital assets?

Absolutely! You can let me know which print and digital asset designs you need and I’ll add them to your proposal with your branding. If I haven’t worked on your branding, I can do graphic design like this during a Design Saviour Day.

I’m an established business looking for an in-depth and intensive rebrand process. Is this a good fit for me?

If you’re an established, growing or large business, you might be looking for something a little bit more… Something that goes deeper into your brand strategy. In that case, my Brand Identity & Design package is perfect for you.

I also need a new website, can you help?

In short, yes! I can create a website to suit your budget, whether a 4 page catalogue site or full e-commerce store. When needed I work with excellent local (Australian) developers to bring my web designs to life.
