Logo & Branding Reveal :: Stephie James

I’m really excited to reveal the brand new logo, watermark & brand for photographer, Stephie James! Stephanie was/is exactly the type of dream client I…. well,dream of!  She had a clear vision but was open to suggestions that I had for strengthening the overall brand. This brand was so much fun to develop and I have to say thank you so much to all of you who offered your voice via the Go{4}Pro Facebook and Twitter Pages to help Stephie decide on her final variation. It was so much fun getting your fabulous input, I really enjoyed it and plan to do it again – so keep a look out! Congratulations Stephanie on your new logo & brand, I wish you all the success in the world and can’t wait to watch you thrive!

The Logo & Brand

The Inspiration…

I don’t normally show the vision boards that clients send me to draw inspiration from but Stephanie did such an amazing job that I really wanted to show you her image samples! As your designer, my ultimate goal is to give you the logo and brand that you’re dreaming of. The trick to this (for me) is figuring out what it is that you dream of. The clearer your focus, the easier it is for me to see your vision! In the case of Stephanie, she made it incredibly easy to see through her eyes and to be part of her vision process! Stephanie was so clear on what she wanted to achieve and this made it possible for us to glide through the design process!

The Branded Marketing Set

Stephanie is just starting her business and now with the Logo, Watermark & Marketing Kit she has everything she needs to hit the ground thriving! Above you saw the logo… Here are several samples from the Stephanie’s new customized Ultimate Marketing Kit!

And lastly… If you’d like to know how the experience was straight from Stephanie’s lips… Here’s what she has to say!

My design experience with Leah was…awesome!  I think the questionnaire at the onset of the process was very beneficial.  It really made me think of who I was, how I wanted to present myself, and made me focus on what I liked and didn’t like.  Making my own inspiration board was fun and made me feel like I was a part of the process. My favorite part of the process is…well, its not really one part.  I think just seeing the evolution of my brand was the favorite part.  Going from initial logos (step 1), to choosing a favorite one and expanding on that (step 2), and then the final touches on it all (step 3).  Another favorite was the fact that you called me and really made me think about the name that I had originally had and how it did not fit what I was trying to do.  I really appreciate the fact that you reached out to me…by phone!  Its not like I was just another “order job” and you just did the order how it was given, but you actually took the time to go over my questionnaire and really pull everything together.

What can Leah improve on?  Hmmm…to be honest I thought the process was going to take longer than it did (not including the wait list part).  But you actually started around the time that you had specified so no complaints there!  You are very transparent and you let me know what was going on.  I’ve been sitting here for minutes not writing anything and I can’t come up with something that I disliked…not that I’m trying.  My experience was great!  Definitely way better than my experience with my old logo. It truly means a lot to know that you’ve been heard.
