Your brand tells your story.

Let's make sure it tells a meaningful one.

Design brings your business to life and connects you with your ideal clients. When it’s done right, great design will strengthen your presentation – not merely make it pretty. 

I hear it over and over: you’re tired of trying to design on your own and are ready to spend time working on your business, not muddling through design projects. You’re ready to invest in thoughtful solutions that will make your business better, connect with your audience, and finally have a visual brand you’ll be proud to share.

I believe in a collaborative process – because who knows your business better than you? – and take all opportunities to learn everything there is know about what you do. Together, we’ll bring clarity and purpose to your visual brand, and make it something your audience loves.

How can we work together?

brand identity

It’s so much more than simply a logo.

Your brand identity is the face of your business and helps tell your story. You may be a small business owner, but your vision is anything but small. I want to help you create a visual brand that genuinely reflects what you do, connects with your dream clients, and serves your purpose.

Let’s build that beautiful brand!

Through my process, we’ll discover the best way to share what makes you great. I take the time to get to you know you & your business on a deeper level so that we can reflect you in the design. From inspiration to final product, you’ll feel involved and prepared to make decisions about your branding. This includes:

  • Questionnaire to assess what your brand needs
  • Custom moodboard creation to hone in on your brand’s vision and direction
  • Logo design and corresponding submarks
  • Brand style board outlining your newly established font system and color palette for you to reference going forward
  • Branded social profile images
  • Two collateral items of your choice (ex: business card, stationery, letterhead, blog post graphics, and so on!)
average timeline: 4-6 weeks

kind words from past clients

(in case you want someone's opinion besides mine *wink*)

"Laura is brilliant at her craft + is a treat to work with. She's super patient, responsive, understanding and obviously creatively and technically brilliant. My re-brand was mentally a nightmare. I was so exhausted and overwhelmed and Laura made it fun and made my dreams come true. She was able to exceed my expectations in a way I never thought possible. I now feel the way I project my visual identity to the world is finally consistent to the value I provide my clients...such a relief!"
Jena, jenabooher.com

“Laura truly listened to my ideas and vision about my business. She was clear and communicative throughout the entire process and made me feel like I was in the hands of a professional every step of the way. She incorporated everything I wanted and added her own ideas and inspiration to create branding + graphics I loved. She took my feedback effortlessly. She happily tried some of my far-fetched requests even when we didn’t end up using them. She has a great process and beautiful work. I highly recommend Dotted Design!”
Elyse, elysesparkes.com

“Laura was so helpful and patient. She also has a great eye for detail and nuance which was represented really well in her translation of putting the real ‘me’ into my branding. She was an awesome partner with a developer that I was also working with. Complete pro!”
Cyndie, cyndiespiegel.com

“Laura was wonderful to work with. She was able to pull ideas out of my head that I would have never thought of but were exactly what I wanted. When I couldn’t make a decision she was able to help me see things from another perspective and more clearly. This made me feel confident in all of my decisions. She was patient, kind, and a thoughtful worker. I am so happy with the work she has done for me. And will be coming back when I need more graphics done!”
Nevica, NevicaVazquez.com

“Laura was really detail oriented but made sure to keep the big picture in mind to create a lasting brand/logo. She has a great process and beautiful work. She was really professional and easy to work with. I really enjoyed our work together!”
Sarah, Little Grey Events

Laura is extremely talented and will help bring your idea to life. She was so patient with me and did a good job of giving me great options when I wasn’t clear. Also all the back and forth went really smoothly and any feedback was taken really well and immediately implemented…I really enjoyed working together.”
Lauren, Lauren Wald Consulting

 

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Laura & her design work. Beyond knocking my website design out of the park, she has become an essential part of my team for every launch, program or product I create. She’s lovely to work with and great at her craft!”
Ellie, Media Bombshell

“Laura has been amazing to work with. She listened to what we wanted…laid out drafts for feedback in a very timely manner to help us stay on track, she helped us stay focused. Working with Laura was more than designing a website, it was building a website and understanding what we do and helping us understand how we can communicate it to our audience. The website journey is never complete, in my opinion, but she helped us set up a solid foundation to build on as we evolve and grow.”
Heather, Nourish

“I shout Laura to the rooftops! Laura’s design skills are impeccable, she is the sweetest personality, and her design was perfect for my minimalist-loving style. She got to the heart of my brand.”
Lindsey, Verity & Co.

Laura is so reliable. We always know what to expect and she’s fun to work with  She’s so professional right from the start and she was wonderful to work with! She’s part of the team now.”
Marie, Le Naturo

“Laura is talented and kind and truly wants the best for your business and its assets. I felt like Laura was excited about what I do and wanted to design a logo that truly captured my company, not just one she thought looked good. She helped me see what the possibilities were for my brand.” 
Kim, Hurray Kimmay

“I have had the pleasure of working with Laura on two different types of projects – my branding and a print marketing piece. Her attention to detail, ability to truly listen to customer needs, and timely production times make her a pleasure to work with.  I will continue to be an eager customer for my continuing marketing and branding needs!”
