Here’s what you’ll walk away with:

Brand fonts that pair well together

Custom icons, patterns, and graphics
And those are just the visuals! We’ll also develop your brand’s mission statement, tone and terminology, brand keywords, and more. By the end of February, you’ll have a beautiful, cohesive brand that will make a great first impression on potential clients and customers.
"I have tried for years to figure out and develop my brand, but finally through this brand challenge, it is clicking! I have never been more inspired, complete, driven, nor have I ever had such clarity of where I want to go. From the target client, to the tone and look. I actually feel like I have the makings of a brand now."
"Can't thank Lauren Hooker and this community enough for the Brand Challenge, inspiration and know-how of pulling this together. I will never look at branding the same after this! Finally I have something cohesive and a great springboard for the rest to come. Now onto website building and content creation!”

Frequently asked questions
Do I have to be a designer to participate? No! The daily action steps are for designers and non-designers alike. I’ll walk you through my exact process for building a brand from start-to-finish and share lots of design tips along the way.
Do I need to have access to design software? Access to programs like Adobe Illustrator are definitely helpful for bringing your design ideas to life, but I’ll be sharing free resources and programs with you throughout the course.
How long will each daily action step take? You can plan to spend 30 minutes each day reading the how-to for each action step and completing it. Some days might require a little more time, some a little less.
