Brand Candi has been super busy since early January! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
I've spent part of the week & today sorting through 20+ messages from Etsy & 25+ emails. And I still have more to go. I am truly humbled. Please know that your message is very important to me and that I am trying my best to respond to you in a timely manner. I hope to have replied back to ALL messages + emails by next week!
I run this business solo and there is not a day that goes by that I am not trying my best to improve not only my skills, but also my business systems. 2014 was an incredible year for Brand Candi, but I am pretty positive that 2015 is going to be my best year yet.
I am a mommy & a wife also and my family often wants, needs and gets my attention from 6PM-10PM during the evening. I also live in beautiful, sunny Florida and I take my weekends to enjoy time with my family - not to mention playing along the seashore and cooking + eating WAY TO MUCH seafood! ;)
I do try to reply to paid client emails throughout the weekend, but I really try to disconnect when I can so that I am recharged and energized for the busy week ahead.
I wanted to update everyone that my current custom/paid project clients are my top priority -- at this time. And for this reason, it is taking me longer than usual to reply to messages/emails, etc. but I am working my way around to YOU!!!
I feel extremely blessed and super thankful to have such a heavy work load at this time. Thank you all for doing business with me! I sincerely appreciate each person who inquires about my services.
I am super excited about the projects that I have the opportunity to work on in the near future! Thank you again for your patience!!!
Happy weekend! ~Candi

P.S. If you head over to my Etsy Shop, you will notice that there are no items currently available! Please know that this will change soon. I am currently creating new listings to add and making over my shop. Updates will include: new services, new products and updated listings. Most prices will remain the same too. I am passionate about assisting small business owners and only want YOU to succeed. I look forward to working with you in 2015.
Coley, lifestyle blogger at Bonjour Coley, is a passionate & talentend photographer, make-up artist and blogger! Coley has a super eclectic, boho-chic and bold sense of style. I absolutely love the vision she has for her business and can say that it strays far away from the typical look that you find in the blogging world!
When I work with a client on designing a custom logo + brand identity, I make sure that I allow them the space + freedom needed when it comes to collecting inspiration for their mood board. Pinterest has been a huge asset to my business + most of my clients already have an account, so it just seems fitting for us to utilize this tool. I start by creating a personal project board and then we pin along! I take their Client Q/A answers + their "pins" and I blend them together to create a mood board. The mood board is then used as a guide for their custom design. In the end, their logo + brand is absolutely, 100% authentic to who they are and what their business will represent.
There is NOTHING more important during this process, than to BE TRUE TO YOURSELF, YOUR PERSONAL STYLE AND VISION FOR YOUR BUSINESS. NOTHING. After all, your brand is a direct reflection of what you offer to your clients & customers. There is no need to force it or fake it. Just BE YOU! When you allow this to happen, the results are truly unique and will allow you to make a real connection with your target market. Check out how I was able to use Coley's inspiration/mood board from above and create this beautiful logo for her buisness. Isn't is beautiful?
Please, please stay tuned and find out how the brand board comes together and Coley's new website + blog...
Mahla, owner of The Eventeur, Inc. contacted me to create a custom logo for her business. The Eventeur, Inc. plans destination events in the most beautiful parts of the world. And while Mahla had been through this process before, unfortunately she had no luck of achieving a brand that matched her vision.
Mahla asked for the logo + brand to be "very dreamy, with some watercolor elements, but leaving the overall look crisp and clean". She also requested that I use gold in the design to "give it that luxury feel at the same time". And I know that I am going to be able to do exactly that and make her "wish list" items come true.
I literally want to live in this mood board! Is that possible?!! HA! Well, sorta, since I do happen to live at the B E A C H! But honestly, check out the hues of the sea, the textures, the materials and the overall tone of this mood board. This mood board really builds a strong foundation and represents what The Eventeur, Inc. (Located in Ontario, Canada) is all about -- Destination Travel Experts!
Please check back for the BIG REVEAL...it is going to be out of this world! ;)
