Your Brand Conveys who you are
Branding imbues your company with a recognizable character. It’s the first step in creating an engaging narrative on what your business has to offer, why you are in business, and where it all leads.
After picking out a name, designing a logo is often the first big step founders make when starting their businesses. But a brand is more than just a logo. A brand is comprised of all of the visual elements of a business, and sometimes even some intangible ones too, like audio elements, community recognition, and tone or voice.
No matter where you are in the process, we can help solidify, strengthen and elevate your brand. These are just some of the services we offer relating to brand development and brand strategy:
Partnering with lgx
We know that every venture has different needs, budgets, and priorities. While many of our services are pre-set or tiered, we are happy to customize packages based on exactly what each unique client needs.
We offer small business consulting services that help make it easier to know what areas of branding or marketing you should be focusing on and when. We understand there are time and money constraints, and we will work with you so that you can work your business.
Some of our small business consulting services include:
- Content/Program Mapping
- Social Media Consultation
- Brand & Website Audit
Designing a logo that’s made to stand the test of time.
While designing a logo may seem simple, the logo sets the stage for all other branding, marketing, and advertising work. A logo has many components: shapes, style, colors, fonts, taglines, and imagery. With the little guy branding team at your side, logo design is a fun, interactive process. We offer several tiers of custom logo design and deliverables to provide the best fit for your business.
We start with an interactive logo discovery session with you (and any key business stakeholders), one of our small business consultants, and the graphic designer that will be designing your logo.
We talk through and get answers to questions like
- Who are the target audiences for my products or services?
- Where will my logo be used?
- What is the personality of my business?
- What colors do I like – or not like?
- What fonts do I like – or not?
- What logo type makes the most sense for my business?
This session runs about an hour and provides the foundation for a series of logo ideation and feedback sessions. The designer will start out by presenting a number of logo concepts in black and white until we’ve narrowed the selection down to the top 2 or 3 options. At that point, we will start adding color and looking at different font options.
Our final logo deliverable is designed to help you go the distance. We don’t just hand off a logo file and call it a day. Instead, we custom design an interactive pdf that showcases the logo and all other elements in the package (dark/light/single color, alternate logo, favicon, other marks, etc.) with a link to a Google Drive folder with your logo in many formats so you have everything you need to market your business. We also include a color palette with CMYK and RGB values as well as recommended fonts and font files.
If you have a logo that you’re generally happy with but needs to be tweaked just a little bit, our logo refresh service may be the right choice. We’ll meet with you to learn more about what you need adjusted, then your graphic designer will vectorize, adjust and edit your logo before preparing the deliverable document.
Our logo deliverable is an organized, interactive pdf document that will link out to a Google Drive folder where all assets are organized in one easily accessible space.
Our standard Logo Refresh Package includes:
- Logo discovery session
- Interactive pdf
- Logo files in full-color, reverse, and single color
- Logo file types for use across mediums – .eps, .jpg, .png
- If needed, an alternate logo format (horizontal or vertical)
- Primary color palette swatch (3-4 colors) with RBG & CMYK versions
- Primary, heading, body, and alternate fonts
Brand standards are the rules of how the brand is presented across all mediums. We will create a document that states very directly acceptable uses and unacceptable uses of the brand marks, colors, fonts, spacing, photography, etc.
Our brand standards guides are dynamic and include links to assets so they are organized in one place, keeping you organized and ensuring you always use the correct files.
We have 3 standard tiered packages, but we often end up customizing these guides to perfectly fit our client’s needs.
Even if we didn’t design your logo, we can take an existing logo and develop brand standards that work with the existing elements. This process is great for an organization with a great logo who wants to design new marketing materials and doesn’t know what the colors, fonts, and other key brand elements are.
Signage & Environmental Branding
There are so many places and ways to showcase your brand. Signage & environmental branding are important parts of building brand awareness that aren’t always as strategically planned as other elements.
Pairing our business consulting services with our graphic design expertise, we can ensure your brand stands out in any setting. These are just a few examples of environmental branding & signage your business might need:
- Exterior signage – doors, windows, building facades
- “Coming soon” banner
- Vehicle wraps or magnets
- Murals or billboards
- Apparel and employee equipment
- Office items – coasters, mugs, etc.
- Trade show booths
- Event/sponsor signs, banners, booths
Graphic design is the art of communicating ideas and messages in a visual way. Any piece of collateral that contains a strong visual element could be considered “graphic design.”
We love graphic design! We’ve been strategically creating brand collateral for years. As such, we have experience in every conceivable industry, every conceivable brand or product. Our recommendations and designs are based on all the prior experiences and knowledge we’ve gained along the way.
Our first step is understanding your needs and the end goal of the piece we are designing.
The discovery and research phase will vary for each project. In some cases, we can do a deep dive into your audience to hone messages, identify customer personas, and develop a robust strategy for developing collateral. In other instances, your needs will be more straightforward.
Once we know what we are going to create and how it will be used, we match you with a graphic designer who will work with you to create the collateral you need. You’ll work directly with the designer, providing input and feedback until you are happy with the result.
Here are some examples of the graphic design services we can offer:
- Business Cards
- Email signature
- PowerPoint slide templates
- Social media banners & graphics
- Environmental signage – doors, vehicles, outside your office, etc.
- Web Graphics
- Swag design, layout & ordering support
