Understand what
your audience wants

Gain clarity in your
brand purpose

Design a brand
with personality

First, let’s look at where you are now.

  • Do you worry that your branding doesn’t match the quality of your product?
  • Do you know that what you’re offering is truly amazing, but you’re afraid to show people because the outside lacks pizzazz?
  • Do you want to position your products or services as a luxury in a commoditized industry?
  • Do you feel that your team is internally confused about your brand’s purpose or “why”?
  • Are you currently using a logo that was thrown together or from a template, but you know you need something more custom to represent where you are as a business?

I get it.

Branding can be confusing. time consuming. expensive.

If you’ve thought any of these things, you’re in the right place. Here at M.Ryland Co we help create a personality for your business, and we do it quickly. We’re not for everyone, but if you’re a small business who needs a brand identity to get you going, look no further. With my proprietary and intensive process, I help you get off the ground in as little as 14 days. But first, let’s clear up a little of the confusion surrounding Branding.

What is a brand?

This is a whimsical analogy, but we like to think of a brand as a personality for your business. It helps your customers or clients connect with your business on a more human level.

What is branding?

Branding is the process of cultivating a culture that permeates your business; and the subsequent development of visual assets that communicate this to your customers.

so, how does this all work?

My design process is a little different.

We specialise in helping new and small businesses design and develop a custom brand for the first time. Because of this, we focus on the essentials for what you need at this stage, and have an intensive model where we can get you off the ground in a matter of weeks. Here’s how we make it happen.

1 onboarding

You complete my client application form, and after a free consultation meeting to ensure we’re a good fit, I’ll send you a welcome packet with info on booking, packages, and your next steps to get started! Following this you’ll be welcomed to my project management tool so that you’ll always be in the loop of where we are in the project.

2 discovery

The design process begins with Discovery. Depending on the package that’s best for you this will be done by a questionnaire that you complete or a live Discovery Session. In this section we uncover and clarify your “why” along with who your business serves, so that I can create brand assets that both represent who you are and speak to your target audience.

3 design

This is where things get fun and my process really stands out from others. To create the actual assets for your brand, we’ll do a one–two day intensive, where I’ll do the actual design with your frequent feedback to ensure that we stay on track and get your new brand identity designed and launched in record time!
