It’s been a while since I shared the design work that has kept me busy these past few months! I finally feel like my business is to a point where I am consistently attracting my ideal clients, and it has been a dream. There is a serious difference between my previous projects where I worked with any client who walked through the door (downfall of in-house design jobs), and now where I intentionally create content + images to attract my ideal clients. I am planning to expand more on HOW to attract ideal clients, but until then just a friendly reminder about the upcoming lunch + learn, where October Ink dives into how to attract + book ideal clients! This looks different for every studio, so I am curious to see what has worked for them! You can register to attend live here. Don't worry, if you can't make it live you will receive the recording. I wanted to just pop in today and share a recent *dream* project of mine! I quietly updated my portfolio with it last week, but wanted to dive into a bit behind Lindsay’s make-up artistry new brand identity.
Lindsay Konrady Artistry:
Lindsay was so great to work with. She had a clear vision in mind from the get go, and it was something that I was completely on board with. With the various make-up brands out there, she wanted to stand apart. Her goal was to create something visually compelling, feminine, yet not in an obvious way. We avoided the hand-lettering, pink color palettes, and overly feminine appeal, and instead we traded it in for a refined, elegant and luxurious look.
Here's a bit about the project: The Lindsay Konrady Artistry brand identity conveys a timeless + refined elegance, in the form of a strong typographic logo mark. The brand appeals to the creative woman who values luxury & attention to details. The sub-mark uniquely combines the L and K in a feminine way. Overall, the brand reflects the quality + humanistic approach that Lindsay takes with her brides. What results is a curated combination of the floral pattern, hand painted textures, vintage photography, and graphic elements.
I really enjoyed creating a unique color palette, developing a custom pattern design and applying it to collateral designs! Tomorrow on the blog, I am going to share a bit more about the top branding collateral I recommend for various entrepreneurs, and how I implement this into my process. Stay tuned!
I am so happy with the final brand identity, and am thrilled that Lindsay is taking this next step in her career! If you are in Chicago, and in need of make-up artistry services, Lindsay is your gal.
So thrilled with the final result, and had such a fun time working with someone who shared the same vision! Here are a few kind words Lindsay had to say about her experience:
"Jamie was nothing short of spectacular! She made everything as seamless as possible for feedback and organization throughout the entire design process. I am seriously OBSESSED with her work and it could not have been any easier to work with her. We were on the same page throughout the entire process and I am 100 percent confident to recommend Spruce Rd. to anyone! THANK YOU times infinity to Jamie for her beautiful work conveying the vibe of Lindsay Konrady Artistry!"
