Brand Identity & Graphic Design

First Impressions Really Matter

It takes less than 50 milliseconds (ms) (that’s 0.05 seconds) to form an opinion about your brand.

Win hearts and open wallets with consistent branding and visual design that truly captures who you are and resonates with your audience.

Visual communication is as much of an art as a science, while it is about aesthetics it’s also about effectiveness. In short, I help capture the essence of your brand—what’s unique to you and what you offer—in a professional way, that’s easy for your audience to digest.

Branding: Capturing Your Unique Style as a Brand Identity

Your brand is more than just a logo—it’s an essence or a vibe about who your organization is, why you operate the way you do, and what it’s like to associate or work with you.

brand identity key elements

Branding encompasses:

  • Brand Values
  • Brand Logo
  • Brand Colors
  • Typography
  • Imagery & Textures
  • Copy Voice & Tone

that are used in all of your communications.

To capture this essence—I dig deep into your values, what it is to be part of your organization, and what it’s like to work with you. Then I use design to bring that essence to life on a handy brand board that you can share with anyone else on your team.

Brand Consistency Across All Channels

Develops Your Professional Reputation & Trust

I also help ensure that your branding, messaging, and imagery is consistent across all of your marketing communications. A consistent, on-brand experience is very important to the relationship with your audience—the more consistent your look and feel, the more trust you garner as a credible and reliable information source.

Don’t Just Take My Word For It…

“I’ve been lucky enough to work with April Holle of Made Better Studio both as a board member of Friends of Sonoran Desert National Monument (FSDNM) and as Executive Director of the EFAZ.

After reviewing the work of a few candidates, we hired April to create and design the first collateral and website for our FSDNM group. April asked all the right questions and was professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with.

Then with my own organization, EFAZ, April helped develop a new website for us, and set us up with Google Analytics. The site has gotten rave reviews and our unique monthly visitors continues to grow incredibly! Whenever I have a question or need help with the WordPress website, April is there. She knows her stuff and is seriously fun to work with! I highly recommend her for any project.”
