HI! I'M KATIE & I AM BRAND BY KATIE: A BUSINESS & PERSONAL BRAND DESIGNER BASED IN MANCHESTER.

ONCE UPON A TIME...

THE STORY OF BRAND IDENTITY

Think of your business as a book. The cover is what initially interests people – your logo, your promotional material, your website. It is sleek, it is elegant, it is pretty. 

Many businesses stop here.

But a book, cannot be a book without content or a story. This is where your Branding Strategy comes in.

To have a strong Brand Identity you need to have a solid Branding Strategy (aka your story) and a enticing cover (aka your Brand Design) to engage your audience. If done right, your audience will not only interact with you over and over like a well loved book – but will also promote you to others without you having to ask.

HELPING YOU TELL YOUR STORY

My aim is simple: to help small independent businesses design their story through bespoke Brand Identity Design. 

As a small business owner myself, I know the highs and lows of running a business. Your time is valuable, especially when you have a family to also look after. For many businesses, “showing up” on multiple social media platforms every day is the only way to get sales. However, this way can be time consuming with little or no return in your efforts. 

Having a recognisable brand puts you in a unique position where your audience comes to you. It can lead to you choosing your clients, not the other way around. And more than anything, it can give you back your time; ensuring you remain visible without you having to be there. 

“Your brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room”

— JEFF BEZOS, FOUNDER OF AMAZON
