By learning how to create your brand identity materials yourself, you’ll feel the relief of being able to get your ideas out of your head and onto the page. As the creator you’ll also have full ownership and control over your brand identity, so you’ll be empowered to make tweaks and improvements as your business grows and evolves.

What Learners Are Saying

From this course I learned how having a visually pleasing brand identity will make you stand out, even in a saturated market. We all like looking at nice things. So when we find a business with crisp, clear visual materials, we relax a little and say ahhh. It’s something that communicates quality to us. So glad I found this course, because now my brand and business speak to those qualities!

The quick win: you’ll look good. You will look professional. And people will not be turned off by your branding, which is something that happens a lot with early-stage businesses, which just throws up unnecessary roadblocks. So there’s both a short and long term benefit here, which is unusual for a mini-course.

Let me chime in on the medium-term! You get this off your plate. It's done. It will save you 2-6 weeks of trying to get someone else to do this for you, and that's a win in my book.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

If you can email & use a program like Microsoft Word, you have all the tools you need to succeed in this course. I’ll be giving you step-by-step video tutorials, where you’ll be following along with my screen while I show you the exact steps I use to create each piece of a brand identity package.

Plus, you don’t have to be good at technology, because you can learn it! Following along with me, through this interactive project using all free software, is all you’ll need to do to dramatically boost your skills and confidence at using technology.

Lastly, please don’t have any worries about getting started, even if you’ve tried things like this before but it didn’t go so well. A lot of things with design that would’ve been a little more challenging a few years ago no longer are. Because of advances in technology, the sort of things we’ll be working through here have become fairly simple, and I promise I’ll be guiding you through all the easiest (but also most effective!) techniques.

While this course is targeted at business owners and founders. If you are a Graphic Designer, Logo Maker, Brand Identity Designer, or Web Graphic creator and looking for a scaleable, repeatable system that will help streamline your business processes and maximize the impact you have for your clients, this course will give you the blueprint you need to get started.
In my web development business, most of my clients wind up taking 2-6 weeks to hash out their brand identity, going through rounds and rounds of revisions. Sometimes they’ve also spent thousands of dollars on fancy PowerPoints or PDFs that display their new brand identity materials in beautiful ways, but provide no useful information whatsoever for when it comes to expanding their brand identity into web design and development. Both the time spent and the fancy display materials are completely unnecessary. This is something that you can do for yourself in a weekend, and your materials will be on par with the top 20% of my clients. I’ll also walk you through exactly what you’ll need to present to your web designer and/or web developer so that they can best serve you, no fancy PowerPoint layouts or PDFs needed.

If you have a passion for design software you’ll have a leg up, but you don’t need to be a designer to create a brand identity that feels “right” and looks good.

The most important thing in successfully creating your brand identity are a few simple strategies for understanding what makes a good brand identity, and then the basic know-how on how to get the ideas from your head onto a screen. We’ll walk you through all of this, and you’ll soon discover it’s way more straightforward than you might think.

If you can work your way around Microsoft Word/Google Docs, send an email, and maybe have once or twice dabbled in making changes to an Excel/Google Sheets document, you’ll be fine. Similarly, if you’ve ever created an online newsletter, built an online survey, or created anything in InDesign you’ll be fine as well.
