entrepreneurs & small businesses
For the budding solo/entrepreneur's. The small business owners who are new or established. The ones who work night and day to perfect a product, service, idea or revenue space. The ones finding solutions to problems to make life better. The ones who are almost bankrupt funding all the various stages and turning to kickstarter or indiegogo to keep going. The ones needing a visual "face" or "face-lift/redesign" to help promote and jump start your business.
You are serious about where you're headed and are passionate about what you've created whether service or product based. You possibly have more than one business to keep multiple streams of revenue flowing in. You already have a strong idea about branding and marketing and what that might entail. Or perhaps, that is one category of the business process that you are really unsure about or never had time to explore its options. Either way, Unfold Creative can help.
We will collaborate together via a creative (design) brief. Specific questions will help hone in on your target market, your voice, your mission, what marketing and design needs you have whether web, print or social media. A strategy session would be an ideal way to go after an initial assessment so that we can discuss a plan of action in moving forward and help put that "face" on your new product or business.
