Branding

Style your creative indie business

So much more than a logo

Your brand is your business’ personality. If you’re a small business owner, it’s probably a whole chunk of your personality too.

We’re experts in bringing your business to life with an exciting, beautiful and unique brand identity.

We’ll work closely with you to create a logo, brand palette, fonts, photography guidance and pattern that really shouts ‘you’.

You can leave us to do the boring bits – setting you up with sexy brand execution guidelines, print collateral and all the digital assets you need.

 

From your brand dreams to your brand reality

Everything but the name

Brand identities by Studio Cotton are developed by our expert marketing and brand stylist, Aime, and one of our top Bristol-based designers.

In our super simple branding process, we’ll help you to nail down exactly what you need for your creative indie business and give you the guidance you need to execute your identity across every medium.

All you need to do is pick a name for your exciting new venture.

Prices start from £1,000

So you have a logo, a palette, fonts and imagery. What next?

We’re going to help you chuck that pish on everything. It’s time to start living your brand. To make things a little easier, we have a selection of fixed-price branded goodies that you can choose from.

It’s just like online shopping for pretty things that will make your business better. So basically a dream come true.

You can include these up-front in your brand identity project, or add on your stationery delights later.

The Studio Cotton brand identity project process

1. Enquiry

We work with indie brands that have a creative, design or feminine focus. If your business fits this description, pop over to our contact page and send us an enquiry via our short form.

2. Quote

We’ll give you access to your personal Studio Cotton quote builder where you can customise your brand identity project.

3. Consultation

Once you’re happy with the scope of your project, we’ll discuss timelines, worries & goals over lovely lattes. Most importantly, we’ll make sure our two businesses are a match made in heaven.

4. Commit

If you think we’re the brand designers for you, that’s awesome. We send you a contract for our services, and an invoice for your deposit. We’ll book in your brand identity project and agree a timeline for delivery.

5. Work

It’s your time to relax, we got this. We’ll work on the first draft of your brand elements, as well as three concepts for your new logo.

6. Refine

We’ll work through two rounds of feedback amends to your brand elements and chosen logo route, creating the perfect identity for your indie business.

7. Delivery

Once you are totally happy with your brand identity, we’ll create a set of comprehensive brand guidelines so that you can execute your new identity across any media.

We’ll pop a couple of physical copies of your guidelines in the post, as well as a couple of special presents too.

8. Execution

If you’ve added any stationery or branded items to your brand identity project, we’ll design and prepare these items for your chosen printer.
