We know it all too well as we’ve been there too. We want to help you go from discouraged, confused, frustrated and struggling to confident, badass, soul-on-fire-THRIVING. Our unique approach will give you so much more than just design, we'll give you confidence, clarity, inspiration and motivation. And we’re here to cheer you on every step of the way. My fellow burnt-out creative rebel, I'm here to tell you it doesn’t have to be like this anymore. What are you deciding for your future? Burnout, deflation, confusion… OR crystal clear clarity on who you are, and moving forward with some badass fuck-yeah confidence?
Cuz honestly.. same. It’s so frustrating having month-long timelines and having to remember so many dates and delaying your feedback because you’re out of the country travelling. We get it, and we want to fuel your creativity and encourage that freedom (because we’re the same). That’s why we’ve designed our VIP days to be as simple, stress-free and fun as possible, allowing you to book your day, chip at your homework in-between sessions, and just book ONE DAY out of your schedule (hello editing days) to dedicate to feedback. We see you busy creatives; we built this especially for you.
This package is built around a business mindset shift. We pride ourselves on helping our clients transform their mindset from 'pleasing everyone' to fully stepping into their authentic selves. Our brand package gets to the root of who you are, who you serve and why. We then take those factors and create a brand that genuinely feels like YOU, making you magnetic to your audience.
This package is more than just design. We help establish pain points, re-write high-converting website copy, do all the SEO things like keyword research, and develop a blog strategy for you. We even suggest blog post ideas to help you rank in Google. Then top that off by making your work stand out with a scroll-stopping design. In just one vip day!!
I can't believe how much more mobile-friendly this website is. I used to tell people to just view my site on their laptops because I was so frustrated and ashamed of the mobile view. I felt like Kern & Ink really listened to me with my hopes for elevated simplicity. I'm so damn excited to use this as an actual business tool. I was so stressed about the financial investment. But I couldn't be more confident that this was the right choice for me and my business!
Sarah is beyond amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better brand design! I've always really struggled with my brand, my colors, my voice and I feel like you were able to find a brand that really resonates with me! You are simply the best and loved working with you! Literally just want to find more projects so we can keep working together!
Kern & Ink is freaking magic! Working with Sarah was truly one of the easiest things I've done in awhile. Her willingness to be available to her clients is one for the books! Sarah has quite the gift to be able to get to know you & design a brand that is so uniquely you. I know she takes the time to hand illustrate everything which makes it extra special. I honestly cannot say enough good things her!
Unlike so many other branding studios out there, she really focuses her entire attention onto your brand. Don't ever be discouraged about it being done in a day because the quality is top notch, the communication is quick and seamless, and she comes up with ideas that speak to your soul that you would never even though of! Even with a few small revisions, she was so quick to get them turned around and I couldn't believe how awesome it all was. AND DID I MENTION! It was done in a day!
The experience was seamless! Sarah was kind, quick, on point, communicated clearly and really applied any feedback so well. Sarah is an illustration wizard. I love her illustrations and it's really darn impressive how quick she is with them too! The design was amazing, I love her sense of style and direction and you can really see that reflected in her work. You guys have this down to a science, it's amazing!! I don't think I've ever gassed someone up this much but they are extremely talented at what they do, seriously!
I feel so well taken care of, loved, and heard. I am truly so impressed. I already showed a few friends and their first response was, "OMG THAT IS ALL SO YOU!" And that's exactly what I wanted - a brand that is ME to my core. I couldn't believe how I would mention an idea or a little tweak during the process and then Sarah just completely knocked my socks off with what she provided. She is such a talented artist.
Sometimes working with others can give me anxiety, but Sarah made it such a seamless and smooth process for me, and the whole brand-in-a-day idea in itself is amazing. I felt so comfortable and confident that we were on the same page the whole time we exchanged emails and feedback. And I have no words for the magic she created for my brand and me! I’m over the moon happy about how everything came out, just so absolutely grateful! ‘
