that specializes in helping creative
small businesses reach new heights.


Our thoughtful design solutions help

clients, leading to more fulfillment.



You have the vision, drive and you’re ready to grow. It’s time to level up. Your potential customers are seeking out brands that are consistent, inspiring and honest. Whether your business is your full-time gig, side-hustle or a passion project that’s just getting going, it has the potential to thrive even more with the right support behind it.

Crafting a brand that resonates with your target audience is no easy feat. You want to stand out while letting your personality shine but you need some helping hands to make it happen seamlessly. Let’s face it: your time is valuable, you have a business to run and your to-do list is already a mile long.

Branch is here to help so you can get back to what matters:
your life, your business and your customers.


Hi there! I’m Shauna and I founded Branch in 2013. Early in my career, I worked gigs at a dozen ad agencies, perfecting the art of the side hustle. While the flow of work with Fortune 500 clients was plentiful, long summers spent sitting in dark offices while watching the world go by left me unfulfilled.

I dreamed of running a studio where being friends with clients was the norm, everyone’s viewpoint was heard and meetings that were big on time and short on ideas didn’t exist.

I longed for a life that existed outside of a cubicle and in response, built a like-minded support group through blogging. In 2007, I launched Nubby Twiglet and there was a near-immediate domino effect: the more stories and projects I posted, the more work flowed in. It taught me the power of authenticity early on: show up every day as your best self, openly share what you love and more of that will come back to you.

When the twig of Nubby Twiglet outgrew a spare room and became more work than one person could possibly handle, Branch was born. Two years in and our tight-knit team is full of family and friends.
