turn your brand design dreams into reality

turn your brand design dreams into reality

Brand design used to be one of two things: a daunting DIY project or an expensive investment. But now there's a whole new way of thinking about brand design that's fast, affordable, and best part of all, super freaking fun.

ISN'T IT TIME TO HAVE MORE FUN WITH YOUR BRAND?

To my fellow creative professional: hello.

I see you out there, hustling and bustling, wearing all the hats, doing all the things. You're on the verge of something great... but there's something holding you back.

Let me guess. 

You're not sure if you're "doing it right," especially when it comes to branding. The passion for your work is there, but sometimes that doesn't feel like enough. You know the visuals are half the battle in getting someone to engage, but yours are... less than engaging.

You wish there was someone who could just say, "Here - use these fonts and colors, add in a splash of this and that," and boom, you'd know exactly what to do. 



Welcome to the
Tiny Brand experience.

There are so many things in life that cannot be handed to us on a silver platter. But this, my friend, is not one of those things. 

The Tiny Brand experience is a done-for-you collaboration. It's a silver platter of fonts, colors, and design elements tailored for you and your business with a quick turnaround of just 48 hours.

But even more than that, it's an experience of being seen as the full human you are. As one client told me, "it helped me uncover what I'm trying to do and who I am. It felt like coming home. It's given me the freedom to carry my ideas further."

Your Tiny Brand is the beginning of a newfound confidence, excitement, and delight in your work.

Let's have some fun.

Everything about the designs was spot on for me, from the font choices to the color palette to the unique graphics for use on my social media platforms. How Karla was able to capture “me” in a font…I’ll never know!

"It's just sheer brilliance."

You don’t even need a fancy logo. 

Right now, in the magical throes of putting your inspired ideas out there, you just need a Tiny Brand, a quick-start-hot-rod shortcut to putting your best visual foot forward in all your digital spaces. 

You don't need a totally custom (read: expensive) brand to look good on the internet. 

HOT TAKE:

Commit to doing away with the Google searches and Pinterest rabbit holes and let’s create a brand that truly reflects the magic of what you do.

Your Tiny Brand

Your Tiny Brand is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a small solution to your biggest design problems of affordability and consistency. No custom designs, no fluff, no designer price tag. Just the basics of what you need — fonts, colors, and some fun design elements — to give you a solid starting place at “solid starting place” pricing. 


introducing...

Tiny Brands are inherently strategic in a get-the-most-bang-for-your-buck kind of way. But they are also super strategic in terms of your business. We focus on your goals, your dreams, your audience, and the tiny things that add up to create your unique brand of magic. 

There are two ways we can do brand strategy: a questionnaire followed by a call, or my personal favorite, a comprehensive workshop disguised as a clever card game I've called the Tiny Brand Coach.

The first two sections of your Tiny Brand build on our strategy. Brand Ethos describes the purpose of your brand, and Brand Vibe maps out a visual direction with a mood board, color palette, and color psychology. 

Here's what's inside:

The Foundation of Your Brand

The Direction of Your Brand

STRATEGY

VISION

You'll see your fonts, colors, and design elements laid out clearly through branded examples of an Instagram 9-grid, a website homepage, or podcast artwork, depending on your brand needs. You'll get a true feel for how your brand will work in the "real world," aka social media, your website, etc. 

All of these elements are wrapped up in an editable style guide for easy access. 

The Application of Your Brand

STYLE

This is the core of your Tiny Brand: font selections, design elements like illustrations, icons, or patterns, and color designations. Fonts and design elements are selected based on your access to Canva (free account vs. pro account, etc.), your marketing platforms, and your particular Tiny Brand package. See below for more on what options are available to you.

— ME, EVERYDAY

 I feel you truly encapsulated something of the heart of my brand and have given me a confidence in my communication materials that I would not have had otherwise - thank you!

— AL HARDY

 It truly took my breath away!

My favorite thing was how personal it all felt. It was crazy how you got into my brain so quick! And how efficient the process was and how user friendly the Tiny Brand is for a "non-graphic designer."

— MARJORIE POFF

I'm having more fun creating and sharing my work!"

 I’m so, so excited to get to work creating something that is uniquely you. I’ve been collaborating with entrepreneurs and dreamers like you for years, and by far my favorite part about brand design is hearing your story and the creative challenge of translating that story into visuals so you can more fully see and express who you are. 

It is a dream to work with creative professionals who share my values of vision, intuition, authenticity, artistry, collaboration, and freedom. What we create together will always be so much more than what either of us could create on our own.

YOUR BRAND WHISPERER

The Tiny Brand Story

I had a colleague come to me in early 2021 and say – Look, I don’t need anything fancy. But I do need help with picking fonts and colors because I literally cannot figure out how to make those choices.

To be honest with you, I didn't exactly know how to help her. In my mind, you either had to invest in a big brand design package or figure it out on your own, using Pinterest as your guide. After all, those were my two options when I started out and guess which one I picked?

But in talking with this colleague, I realized there had to be a way to give someone just the essentials. There had to be a simple way to package up the basics of a brand foundation that even a non-designer could implement and use.

ENTER: TINY BRANDs.

where did tiny brands come from?

This service is the only one of its kind. Why?

IT'S STRICTLY BRAND CURATION.

Designers offer a range of services, but they often fall into one of two categories: semi-custom or totally custom.

Tiny Brands are neither. 

Semi-custom means buying something pre-made and customizing it for your brand. Totally custom means everything is created from scratch.

Don't get me wrong, Tiny Brands are absolutely tailored to you and your business, but they don't rely on the hours and hours of custom design work that traditional branding requires. They're like capsule wardrobes -- you tell me what you like, and I pick the pieces for you that will work together no matter what. 

And because I'm not literally making the clothes for you (or in our case, designing things from scratch), it only takes 48 hours before you're ready to hit the ground running with your new brand assets. 

IT'S CREATED IN CANVA SO YOU CAN EASILY ACCESS YOUR NEW BRAND ASSETS.

I love a good Adobe Illustrator-messy-art-board-marathon as much as the next designer. But you know what I love more? 

Ease. Accessibility. Simplicity. 

Not only for myself, but for you. We create and house your Tiny Brand inside of Canva, a gorgeous cloud-based design software that is so user-friendly even my mom can create her own designs with it.

The only thing missing from Canva is someone to help you choose the right fonts, colors, and design elements for your brand. :)

LOGO SUITE

DOES MY TINY BRAND COME WITH ANY CUSTOM DESIGNS OR LOGOS?

Nope! A Tiny Brand is a curated collection of fonts, colors, and design elements that are available inside Canva's library of elements. Leaving out custom designs is what keeps a Tiny Brand so affordable. However, the Tiny Brand Pro includes a basic logo suite featuring your Tiny Brand assets. It's a nice option for when you need a "basic" logo but don't have a "fancy" logo budget.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IF I want to make changes to my tiny brand? 

I will happily complete one round of refinements for free, but we can do as many rounds as needed at $70/hour. I'll be sure to ask about a cap for how much you want to spend on refinements if we get to that point.

Do i own the fonts you choose?

Nope. I'm curating your fonts through what's available inside of Canva. Many of those fonts are Google fonts and are available to download for free, but other fonts would require a purchase to use outside of Canva. I will give you those details when I send over your Tiny Brand.

Do i have to use canva?

It's not required, no. Canva accounts are free (up to a point), so it's a super useful resource to create graphics and other marketing materials. But you could easily take the collection of fonts and colors (design elements are specific to Canva) and use a different design software if you prefer.

WHAT IF I NEED OTHER THINGS DESIGNED, LIKE PODCAST ARTWORK OR SPECIFIC SOCIAL MEDIA GRAPHICS?

I would be honored to create more designs for you. I have separate custom design packages for projects like this, so let's chat about what you need!

how does the referral bonus work?

You'll be sent a unique code within your Tiny Brand PDF that you can share with your followers, newsletter people, whoever you like! I keep track of who purchases through your code and will contact you when you make your first referral bonus! I offer a $25 cash bonus or design credit for each referral, so you can choose how you'd like to spend that dough.
