Designing an honest brand that lives and breathes your ethics doesn’t just happen.
It takes collaboration, communication and a close look at your brand values and mission. So when we work together, we’ll design an identity that inspires awe and mobilises change. A brand that is not only every inch you, but also one that connects on a deep emotional level with your ideal customer. And with in-depth brand and market exploration, custom hand-drawn illustrations, and flexible, optional extras to choose from, you can trust that what you’ll end up with will be fully ready to make your vision a reality.
Having my own brand book has completed my store and enabled me to grow as it’s my guide book for everything I do. Everything now syncs together and 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.
BRANDING IS HOW YOU EMOTIONALLY CONNECT WITH YOUR FUTURE CUSTOMERS. IT’S YOUR VISUAL STORY.
THE AUTHENTIC BY DESIGN PACKAGE
You believe in what you do and work hard to provide your products and services with soul and passion. But your visual identity doesn’t seem to reflect the quality of your offer.
What’s more, is that you seem to be spending more and more time trying out different DIY design apps and tools. But this means you’ve ended up with an inconsistent brand identity that isn’t helping you create the impact you need.
Maybe you feel unconfident about your brand, and you’re not sure how to fix it. That’s where the Authentic Branding Experience comes in.
Whether you’re starting your brand or going for a refresh of your current identity, you’ll see a comprehensive suite of design elements you can use for every situation, print, digital and everything in between.

A guide to MY 4 STEP INTUITIVE BRANDING PROCESS
First, we will explore your values, your beliefs, your competitors, your dream clients and what sets you apart in an in-depth and collaborative brand exploration session.
Then, we’ll explore several visual routes through the creation of mood boards.
Based on your feedback and insight through our brand exploration session and mood boarding exercise, I’ll create your unique brand visual identity.
Your favourite mood board route will then be used for inspiration to create a variety of unique logo designs and brand experience items.
Once you’re happy with your branding, I’ll create a brand book telling your brand’s visual story and creating a strong brand experience through fonts, colours, photography style, marketing collateral, voice, social media style, website design and any bespoke illustrations.

KIND WORDS & REVIEWS…
Charlotte did a superb job designing my chocolate boxes. Completely hit the nail on the head. All done promptly, but very professionally too.
Charlotte was amazing to work with, exceptionally patient and provided us with great guidance. This was our first time working on creating our brand with anyone outside of our team, she really understood who we are and what feelings we are trying to convey. Great experience!
