The Script + Vine method of inner–outer branding for creative businesses is driven by the philosophy that what you stand for matters most and the visual representation of your brand should be a reflection of its inner beauty.
From your offerings to your voice on Instagram, branding has a hand in every piece of your creative business. It’s in your logo and brand colors, your web copy and voice on social media, your emails to potential and current clients and customers. Your brand is your root system, keeping your business stable, healthy, and positioned for growth.

I approach all design through a lens of partnership, and the Script + Vine Inner–Outer Branding Method takes work on both sides. You’ll have multiple rounds of homework to help you dig deep into what your brand is and what it represents. You’ll define what you do and, sometimes more importantly, what you don’t do. Together we’ll discuss your creative business goals and dreams as well as your fears and setbacks. We’ll unearth the soul of your brand and from there I will help you craft the visual and verbal pieces of your creative business branding to help you present and position yourself confidently.

who I work with
I primarily provide branding for creatives: designers, makers, artists, florists, stylists, event professionals, writers, bloggers, photographers, and coaches. The Inner–Outer Branding Method is best for you if you’re a creative business owner who has been running your business (either full time or as a side hustle) for at least one year. Most of the business owners I work with on branding are in a transitional period. They’re not attracting their dream clients or customers and things just feel off; their business has evolved and their branding no longer fits with what they offer, how far they’ve come, and where they want to go.
