7 Signs that your Brand is Lacking Clarity:

  1. Your brand does not represent the level of quality you provide in your offerings.
  2. You have a hard time explaining what exactly you do and who you can help.
  3. You are not sure how you are different from your competition.
  4. You are not attracting the right people, and you don’t know how to pull in the right ones.
  5. You never really invested the time to create a strategic and meaningful brand to start with.
  6. Your business has changed significantly (new direction, market, services, products, audience) and has outgrown the brand you started with.
  7. Your business is surviving but not thriving. You know you need to change something but don’t know where to start.

Add more value.

With a background in graphic design and branding, I’ve designed brand identities for almost 20 years. While the logos I created are beautiful and my clients were happy, I always felt something was missing. I started to wonder, are we making a true impact? Are my clients reaching their business goals with their brand-building? Have we turned every stone to look for gaps and opportunities?

I wanted more meaning in my work, add more value, and truly help and empower my clients to reach their most potential. I want to give them confidence and guidance through the process of starting a business and brand. With my analytical thinking and design skills, I want to build a lasting relationship and become their creative partner in crime. That’s why I created my “Clearly Branded” service. And I love it. I feel so much more connected to my clients, and now we can not only create a meaningful brand identity but also measure and track impact.

Case Study

Wholeness At Work.

We helped an executive coach that wanted to write a book on burnout in the workplace. She came to us to take care of the visual design of the book. Before we did that, we spend a lot of time figuring out who this book is for, how it will fit into the competitive landscape, and how we will reach potential readers. The results of this deep dive shaped the design, format, language, overall tone, and voice of all communications, and avenues of advertising. 

We discovered that readers want more. We ended up developing a whole brand and program around this book with videos, book clubs, a launch party, and 1-1 consulting upgrades. Instead of being under her coaching company brand, it became its own entity.

Petra’s design perfectly resembles my heart and mind, captures my voice, and provides the user with a remarkably transformative experience. With Petra’s extensive knowledge of design and development, she has amplified our marketing voice by providing thoughtful designs for our website and social media. Petra expertise around brand strategy quite literally brought my brand to life and I highly recommend her services.

FAQ about working with Lime&Co

I just started a new business, is "Clearly Branded" for me?

Yes. This Brand Building Package was made for you. Because why not start at the beginning. Together we discover your core foundation, figure out what makes you unique, and then create a custom brand around that.

I've had my business for a while now, but something is not working. Do you help with that?

Definitely. Let’s dissect and see what exactly is not working and then handle it accordingly. Your positioning might need tightening, your website a facelift, or your brand needs to evolve to be seen by those you want to attract.

Who do you work with?

We mostly work with Small Business owners, entrepreneurs, and founders that have a B2C service or product. We help them find clarity and confidence, shape new strategies for their brand and empower them to evolve, serve their community, and lead in their space. Is that you?

Who will I be working with?

Mainly with Petra, the founder of Lime&Co. She will lead you through all the clarity and strategy work and be your point of contact. The “&Co” in our company will help to build everything else… design, website, copywriting, social media, web design, it’s all an expert team effort. Because we believe in the power of collaboration.

After going through the "Clearly Branded" process, what will I walk away with?

You will not only have an outstanding custom logo but an entire brand kit with all the assets your brand might need. But most importantly, you have clarity. You know who you are, who you are for, where you want to go, and how to get there.

How long does the "Clearly Branded" process take and how much is it?

It depends a bit on your time commitment, but if we focus, we can finish the “Clearly Branded” journey in as little as six weeks.

We have different pricing packages depending on your company’s needs and size. See a breakdown above. The lowest “basic” package starts at $10,000. Best to schedule a call with us to determine which package is right for you.
