authentic branding & DESIGN
for ethical businesses

You created your brand with hopes, dreams and desires for a better world. I know – because I did the same. And like so many of purpose-led brands I work with; you’re doing powerful work to change the lives of people and the world we live in.

But something doesn’t feel right.

You’re struggling to get your values and impact across to connect and grow your brand. You know you put everything into your work – but somehow it just doesn’t seem to translate into your visual identity. But the time has come to make a bigger impact. And with a unique, impactful brand experience that connects instantly with your people – nothing can stop you.

sustainable DESIGN THAT PUTS YOU
AND YOUR VALUES AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING.

EMPOWERED LEARNING

If you’d like to learn and improve your branding with my expert guidance then you’ll love my empowering self-led courses and workshops.

"THE KIND STORE IS NOW A COMPANY THAT I’M PROUD TO SHOW OFF!"

Improving my branding has enabled many things. Firstly, a greater brand awareness and improved customer engagement as I now have a recognisable logo and colour palette. The store feels like a proper store rather than a ‘one-woman-band’ and we’ve been featured in Forbes, the Guardian and other publications. Magazines such as Vegan Life have also been keen to hear from me about building a business."

WE ARE SO IN LOVE WITH OUR NEW BRANDING!

Charlotte was able to understand what we wanted even before we did, and in the few weeks since we launched the new branding I have already seen many benefits!

I love how now we have a unique and cohesive look across our social media channels, website and packaging, it is already helping to make us look more like a "proper" business, without losing the independent and handcrafted side of it. Understanding better our identity and having a brand that allows us to communicate it well is helping us grow and reach more people. Thank you so much Charlotte for the amazing job!

Bianca & Giulio, Founders of Zero Waste Path

Charlotte you are generally a lovely person to work with and I am looking forward to continuing to grow our relationship!

 hello I’m Charlotte!

I’m Charlotte the founder of Creative Wilderness. I love to collaborate with forward thinking, purpose-driven people!

I’ve worked with some of the leading ethical and sustainable brands, creating brand experiences that have helped them grow into successful, dream businesses.

Before Creative Wilderness I learnt my design and branding craft at big design and advertising agencies. I’ve created packaging designs for Wilkinson Sword, pitched campaign concepts to Vanish and KP nuts, created branded materials for Peroni to name a few! I understand what these big brands do well, and also how to apply some of these principles to make independent brands like yours have a big impact.

When I’m not designing, I love getting out into nature, hiking, wild swimming, and exploring in my new VW T4 campervan ‘Autumn’.

RECEIVE MY 'THOUGHTS FROM THE WILDERNESS' EMAILS
