Studio Success Guide: Branding & Style

  • It’s time for a new, fresh start! Let’s face it: Your website colors could be giving you the blues. Maybe you’re finding Comic Sans not so funny. Your social media presence has you flipping Twitter the bird and giving Facebook the #facepalm.

    Are you ready to strut your stuff, but you’re not quite sure how to bring the magic?

    Have no fear; we’re here to help you discover your most authentic, consistent online presence yet!

    Design Aglow delivers the most intuitive website and social media Style Guide to date. We even go a step farther and follow up the latest information with interactive worksheets so you can plug in (or paste) your favorite things and put those ideas into innovative practice – all while driving more traffic to your business and creating a beautiful buzz!

    Whether you’re contemplating fonts, voice, colors, sidebars or images, we’ve got those web topics handled, from header to footer (see what we did there?). The only thing you’ll wonder about is what you’ll do with all that spare time you used to spend worrying about your online presence (we recommend hot yoga).

Worth Every Cent

I had literally just moved my photography business 2000 miles away, and when I reopened my business, I knew I needed a fresh, new brand for my fresh, new location. I hired a graphic designer to make a new logo, brand sheet, and website, but when she asked me for ideas, I had no idea what I wanted or where to start. She came up with some initial ideas, but none of them were what I was looking for--even though I wasn't particularly sure what I was actually looking for.

This guide was invaluable to our creative process.

I went through this workbook, completed all of the activities, and gave the completed worksheets to my graphic designer. Within a couple of weeks, she had a whole new set of designs that were EXACTLY what I wanted for my brand. This guide is the best way to get your brand ideas and goals set down into one concrete document that you can use for logo design, web design, blog posts, and more. It is absolutely invaluable, and something I can always look back to whenever I need creative direction for my business. It's worth every cent.
