Making sure you have a strong brand is THE number one priority for your business.

What is a brand? A brand is simply what people perceive about you. Think of it like this: you as a person have a personality, but not everyone knows you well enough to know your true self…they don’t really know you…they only know how you made them feel four years ago when they passed you in a hallway or what someone else said about you in a review online. Sometimes, you can come across differently to other people based on what you say or don’t say, do or don’t do…right? The same applies to your business.

What is branding? Branding is simply the process of taking more control over your brand – ensuring that you and everyone else has the same idea of who you are.

Branding is more than just a logo.

A lot of pieces come together to ensure the consistency, professionalism, and emotional connection that comes with a strong brand: brand strategy, visual identity, written identity, imagery, marketing materials, client interactions, environmental design, signage and packaging, and communities.

My Services

Brand Your Brand

My two-step strategy process

I’ve developed a two-step process called Brand Your Brand where I develop a plan (The Brand Plan) to improve customer connections and then make straight-forward changes to boost (The Brand Boost) your success. This process is truly eye-opening and oftentimes creates a pivot point for your business.

Brand Assessment

If you already have a brand strategy/plan, you may just want some advice on how you can improve what you’re currently doing. This is one of my favorite services to provide because it is so insightful. I give you the rundown on ways to better-connect with your customers through your branding. I highlight what’s working well for you, what you can do more of, and what can be improved – all in positive and encouraging way. The result is a 10+ page report developed over a period of three weeks and 1-hour assessment review.

Golden Hour

We’ll talk for an entire hour. Ask me anything branding or marketing related that you need to advice about. And…go!

Nice to e-meet you!

I’m Briana, and I help service-oriented leaders like you create amazing brands. I was born and raised in Bristol, TN/VA in the Tri-Cities at the center of the Appalachian Highlands, and I still live here with my husband Stephen.

In many ways, I am an old soul. I can’t help but have a desire to understand people of all demographics, generations, and personality types. I use that desire to your advantage: to determine how you can better serve your dream customers. It’s an emotionally-driven approach to branding that involves stepping into someone else’s shoes. After all, the emotion a brand creates for a customer is what keeps them coming back, and who better to take an emotionally-driven approach than me, one of the most emotional friends you will probably ever have!

I’ve been winning industry awards since 2010 at the local, national, and international level for photography, graphic design, web design, branding, writing, and marketing. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of providing services for clients in so many different industries: automotive, advertising, government, real estate, tourism, spa and beauty, social work, retail, law, energy, nonprofit, religious, healthcare, entertainment, arts, transportation, music, finance, wedding and event, government, food/beverage, fitness, wellness, education, housing, construction, and more.

I’ve worked with a lot of people, and I pride myself on relating to and caring deeply for every client I ever work with. I believe in the power of branding, because when you invest in your brand, it is business-altering for you and your clients. As your brand strategist, designer, photographer, and educator, I will help you make emotional connections with your dream customers through a simplified view of branding and a hefty dose of authenticity.
