FULL Small Buisness Rebranding Package

Having your business branding accurately and aesthetically reflect you is important. It’s the first impression customers take away from your business when they’re comparing you with the competition. But developing a brand that stands out and is consistent can be tricky!

That’s why I developed the complete rebranding package. Tailored specifically to small business owners- this set includes all you will need to launch your new effective branding strategy.

How it works: first, we brainstorm you tell me what you want from your new branding, and I develop a package, with consideration to your target market, what services you offer and in what application your logo will be used in (uniforms, stationary etc.)

Included:

A design board
X3 options of logo
X2 Watermarks
X2 Banner options for your website
X2 Social media banners (Facebook & Twitter)
Stationary- Letterhead
– Thank you cards
– Pricelist
Social Media Icons

The Tales of a Designer- Renovating Right. Where to Splurge and Where to Save

1.Invest where it will make an impact.

So you’ve compiled your inspiration photographs, you’ve planned out what will be happening with the space, and you’ve compiled a budget. Now to decide how much to pay for what?

My rule of thumb : every Reno has a focal, something special to set it apart from the thousands of other homes . This is what you spend that little extra.

Found on domaine home

Whether it be a gorgeous fabric for the window seat, authentic barn wood for the beams or even that embossed detailing on the fireplace mantel.. Its those details that are going to wow.

This does not mean skimp on building materials. It means investing into that special piece. Hint. It’s rarely the faucet or laser cut furnace vents. Purchase honest, good quality materials, however remember that if your splurging on a piece, it better be ah-mazing.

  1. Think long term

You never know what life will throw at you! (my parents had 7 kids. Enough said.) this house may not be the forever home you where dreaming of. So maybe rethink that built in BBQ grill with the faux stone finish (yep seen that one too!) There’s something about a well designed home that appeals to everyone, even if its not their specific style. It’s the balance of line, form and texture that really makes a renovation come together- and should you decide to resell- boost property value.

If this is absolutely going to be your nest for the next 10-20 years of your life- your going to want to invest in quality, durable finishes. This may mean doing a bit of research as to the longevity of what you’ve chosen and staying away from anything too trendy.

A few tips to keep your new Reno looking fabulous longer.

  • When choosing stone for your countertops- stay away from soft porous stones (marble, slate etc). Instead, go for engineered quartz! or granite that’s been filled and treated.
  • Choose a light flooring with a textured grain for your flooring. Not only will it bring warmth and texture to your space, it won’t fade or stain in the sunlight as darker wood has a tendency to.
  • Pick a backsplash that is simple and not too trendy- as it’s the backsplash and bathrooms that tend date a Reno.
  1. Work with your existing space.

I’ve recently been seeing a lot of beautiful old homes have their entire first floor walls torn down and “opened up” to give a very city like feel.

This usually means adding a enormous kitchen, a entry way, living room and… well that’s it. Often older buildings where built on a smaller foundation, walls would clearly separate the rooms and housed a miniscule kitchen to save space. Now, with new renovations we are seeing some painful loss of space due to poor planning.

Things you can do to work with your space

  • look at the flow of your space and separate it clearly into the sections you want to include (dining, living, entry, kitchen etc)
  • find furniture that fits with your space – stay away from the sprawling sectionals, and opt for something more compact that works with the space you have.
  • Invest in storage. There are so many unique and innovative ways to personalize your kitchen with storage. Take advantage of every spare inch go for a gallery or a U shaped kitchen and never underestimate the power of a lazy Susan!

4.Save a bit for later

Is your budget tight? Set aside something that can be completed at a later date.

I often see clients make compromises on pieces just to have the project wrapped up and completed. Good things come to those who wait! in the long term it’s the details that will separate your space from the sea of rushed renovations out there.
