IS THIS REALLY GOING TO BE WORTH IT?

It’s a really good question to ask, and one that is definitely worth exploring… and I believe the best person to answer that question is you! Let’s start by asking a few simple questions:

»  Are you personally more apt to pick a company, product or service when their graphics are beautifully designed across the board? …and you can see and feel their presence and quality from every place they appear?

»  What does that quality tell you about their service before you’ve had a chance to know them personally? or test their product/service for yourself?

»  Do you feel proud and excited to share your current design and branding with people, partners, vendors or investors?

»  Does it inspire you about the possibilities to come for you? Does it accurately reflect your quality? Does it invoke the feelings that your business gives to its customers?

»  Do you feel truly supported and cared for by your web designer, graphic designer or developers? Do they see you? Hear you? Understand you? Care about you? Get back to you? Will they be there for you next year? in 5?

»  Is what you have now going to support you in growing your business and reaching your goals in the years to come? Is it speaking to your quality? Connecting with your audience?



LET’S CREATE YOUR LEGACY.

Ready to commit to your success?  To invest in your businesses future?  I can’t wait to work with you!  Let’s find out how updating your visual presence can quite simply CHANGE EVERYTHING—not just because it makes an impression on your audience—but because it makes an impression on YOU.

After nearly two decades doing this I’ve seen the profound impact it has to reinvigorate a business, and a business owner. 😉

It’s as if you’re taking a moment to reflect on all the incredible hard work and dedication that you’ve put into raising this business of yours, and you celebrate, commemorate, and honor itby gifting it a fresh new coat of paint, or keeping it tended like a garden. Like the mysterious power of simple things like new hair cuts, new color, new clothes or new shoes… fresh design stokes confidence, giving you the renewed energy and inspiration you need to get to the new heights you’re reaching for.

Plus it reminds and puts you back in touch with all the reasons WHY YOU DO THIS.  Bringing back to the forefront what exactly it is you love so much about this thing you started, and have worked so hard for. Suddenly you feel seen, and captured in a whole new way, and it gives you the fuel to go full-steam ahead.

Branding and design is something that feeds you as a business owner on more levels than meets the eye—helping you push through tough spots and learning curves, and keeping you clear and focused through ever-changing times.

Because we’re not just making a living here… we’re making a life. ♥


So please reach out if you should have any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you! 

we'll help bring out your unique

brilliance

so you can stand out in the crowd

The power of great design in branding your business is that it not only excites and inspires your clients, but it excites and inspires you too! When you meet your genuine brand, all fleshed out before you, it re-invigorates and re-inspires YOU about it too, it brings your vision to life in a whole new way, and that inspiration goes right back into the business… equipping you with everything you need to meet your market head-on, and grow your business from a fresh and strong foundation. As a successful business owner you already know that whether you’re selling a product or a service, what you’re really selling is an EXPERIENCE, and the best way to sell an experience is to give your prospective customers a “taste”. Here at The Salty Olive we specialize in just that very thing, and we’ve been doing it for 16+ years: distilling it all down to the heart of your business, and designing all your marketing materials to do just that—give your clients a true “taste” and FEEL for YOUR UNIQUE BRAND EXPERIENCE. The fact is people connect on a tactile, and emotional level through words and imagery—it’s what moves them and ultimately inspires them to choose you—that’s why we design your brand as an answer to what your clients most want to feel and experience,  because when you do that, you go from being A choice for them, to being THE choice for them.
