The Power of a Clear brand message

Graphic Designer works on her brand messaging
Meet Wendy, Graphic Designer

Meet Wendy. Learning about her brand identity helped her identify her ideal client persona. This has equipped her with a clearer brand marketing message.

Case Study Example: Wendy's A. Brand Assessment Journey


Wendy is a passionate graphic designer with over a decade of experience in branding agencies. However, she needed a clear brand message and more clarity around her specialty niche to start independent consulting. 


Strategic Reflection:

Going through targeted self-assessment prompts helped Wendy catalog forgotten value across knowledge domains:


-"What talent feedback indicates strengths?" Design leadership praised eye for color schemes.  

-"What re-energizes you?" Loses track of time perfecting font pairings.

-"Where have you developed advanced mastery?" Vital minimalist logo concepts and illustrations.



The milestone exercises resurfaced natural art direction abilities - particularly within print materials - as consistent high-performance areas she found rewarding.



Wendy clearly defined her niche at the intersection of brand style development and print collateral design. This allowed the presentation of a focused brand identity and clarity of products and services that she could offer. 

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do." - Steve Jobs.
