“Americans are very big about loving the dog first... They're actually looking for you to be the pack leader.”
— Cesar Millan
Take the lead!
Best in Breed
Best in breed means, excellence from start to finish. The best businesses are those that value design and consistency so their clients know exactly who they are, what they do, and why they do it. No need to be the mutt with the identity crisis when it comes to your livelihood and passion.
Best in Show
Your business is awesome! Let’s show the world your awesomeness. Don’t just follow others – be the leader. When you add branding into the mix, your website relaunch will be more than a redesign – it will truly reflect the leader you are. That’s how your brand becomes memorable – not just "well known".
Show as a Champion
Whether you're exhibiting at an industry trade show, presenting during a conference, or networking with peers, your displays, handouts, and presentation designs should be as credible, professional, and smart as you are. Elevate yourself and your brand with top-notch, strategic design.

I’ve been in this line of work for decades. My branding and website don't convey my level of expertise or rates.
People don’t know what I do for a living.
I have difficulty explaining to people what I offer and how I’m different.
How do I transition from executive to entrepreneur?
I used to work with my colleagues, but now I’m a business owner. How can I change that perception?
I'm not getting any referrals.
My clients and peers don’t refer me to others. Why is this?
It's not what you say, but
Claim Your Territory
in Your Clients' Minds
Design, color, and typography are what you're saying beyond the words you're using. Often, they can contradict the words. That's where the confusion begins. Instead of confusing, you need to be clear so you can stake your claim to that spot in your clients' minds for what you offer.
"If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten."
— Tony Robbins
