Process

Behind every great outcome is a defined process.
The Branch Method is clear and results-driven.

  • Q&A

    As soon as you book in, a questionnaire will prompt you to share details about your business. We will review this together to make sure everything is clear.
  • Conversation

    On your project start date, we'll review deliverables, goals and your questionnaire on a kick-off-call. Being on the same page from day one helps ensure a great outcome.
  • Research

    You will be prompted to gather visual inspiration within a Pinterest board. Curating imagery that aligns with your ideal aesthetic forms the basis of your visual brand strategy.
  • Strategy

    We'll create a presentation deck including strategy, colors and a mood board to ensure creative alignment. Upon approval, the design process begins.
  • Design

    Design directions are built out for you to review and then it’s your turn to provide feedback. Up to 3 complimentary rounds of revisions are included.
  • Launch

    Upon final approval, you'll receive a download link to access your final brand files and guidelines. Now, it’s time to launch your fresh design and strategy with the world!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. How much does it cost to work with you?

    Every project is different but our Services Guide will give you a general idea of starting rates. To determine the exact cost of your project, we like to hop on an intro call to talk about your specific needs first and then put together a custom proposal just for you. However, most of our projects fall within the $5-20k range.

  • 2. What is the usual timeline for my project?

    Timelines vary depending on the scope of your project but on average, branding takes 6 weeks to complete. Websites take 8 to 12 weeks from start to finish once your content is in-hand, including research, design and development. If you have a specific deadline that needs to be met, please let us know right away.

  • 3. Do you offer payment plans?

    Yes! Working with a designer is a big investment, so we try to make payments as simple as possible. Most projects are broken into 2-4 installments depending on the size with the first deposit required to hold your spot on our schedule.

  • 4. What if I just want a logo?

    At this time we offer a brand platform only which is covered in our Essentials Package. If standing out from your competitors and creating a sense of focus and clarity is your goal, then you’re going to need more than just a logo to create a lasting impact.

  • 5. Do I receive editable files?

    Yes! For branding and print projects, you receive packaged, fully editable InDesign or Illustrator vector files depending on the project.

  • 6. What web platforms do you design for?

    WordPress and Squarespace.

  • 7. For web projects, are development costs included?

    No. Web development costs can differ greatly depending on how complex your site design is and we want to make sure you are able to get all the bells and whistles you’re seeking.

  • 8. How soon can we get started?

    We’re usually booked 1-2 months in advance. Contact us for current timing.

Rave Reviews

  • “Shauna is a master at simple, stylish and well thought out logo design and is the brains behind the iconic logo for The Brand Stylist. I was drawn to her strong, elegant feminine style and captivated by her modern aesthetic. I’ve since worked with Shauna across a number of client projects and she has consistently impressed with her attention to detail, relentless pursuit of client happiness and creative flair.”

    FIONA HUMBERSTONE

  • “I have owned my own businesses for over 20 years, and I’ve been through A LOT of graphic designers in that time! Besides being extremely talented, Shauna is the only designer that I have ever worked with that actually gets things done on time and in a super professional manner.”

    JULIE WRAY

  • “Before working with Shauna I had no idea what was possible for my brand. I just had a little wedding blog with a small but loyal readership but it lacked visual direction. Since the initial logo, Shauna and I have worked on numerous projects including completely redesigning my website and the Rock n Roll Bride magazine. No project is too big, too small or too crazy. Having her as my designer has been the best investment I’ve made in my business.”

    Kat Williams

  • “When I sought a graphic designer to create a new identity for my photography business, I knew immediately that I wanted to work with Shauna. Aside from being insanely creative, she presents a clear and concise approach to branding. She was devoted to my project, always on schedule, helping guide me when I needed it, and made for a fantastic collaborative effort overall.”

    LINDSAY SISTING

  • “I can always count on Shauna to turn my tiny seedlings of ideas into a gorgeous, fully-developed reality. Her attention to detail, high standards and relentless work ethic make her a delight to work with. Shauna overflows with ideas and enthusiasm for every project; I cannot imagine working with anyone else!”

    GALA DARLING

  • “When I was in search of a collaborator, Shauna was the natural choice. One of my favorite aspects of working with Shauna is the almost intuitive way that she gets what I am trying to do with my photography, promotions, and branding. Her insights into culture and style are invaluable, and the comprehensive research that she puts into each project results in powerful design solutions that have helped my business so much.”

    LUKE COPPING

  • “Shauna is magic! She brings a truly considered, conscientious, organized, detail-oriented approach to collaboration and creativity, which is as brilliant as it is rare. While she is obviously a really fantastic designer, most importantly Shauna really understands branding and she has a very intuitive, insightful approach that is sure to grow your brand. I started with a tiny seed of an idea and I feel that with Shauna’s help it’s become something real, and that’s more than I could have hoped for.”
