My experience in collaborating with Lara + Emily to re-launch our Engaging Concepts brand (in record time no less!) has been nothing short of perfection. I have been so impressed with their in depth understanding of just what we wanted to convey and the amount of genuine care that they have taken with each step of the process. They have simply blown me away at each and every turn. Building or refreshing a brand is a highly emotional endeavor and the combination of of confidence and passion that they have shared has been just what we needed to break through to create what we feel is an exciting, fresh new way to tell our complicated story. I cannot say enough about both of them and the level of true professionalism and personal commitment that they have approached this project with. I am simply blown away by my experience with them and grateful beyond words!! - Rebecca Grinnals, Engaging Concepts
The client experience, customer service, advice, and help provided throughout my time with Making Brands Happen was just unreal. In fact, I really can't think of any other consumer experience equal to it except maybe Apple. When I asked a question I got an answer within 24 hours. When I asked for advice, I got opinions based on experience. I was nervous about if I would get what I really really wanted and they have certainly delivered. I love it! It's me! It is now my company, my brand, and my collateral through and through. I could have gone to a web designer, but they would have asked me what colors I wanted, what fonts I wanted and a whole bunch of things that quite frankly I either just wouldn't know the answer to or I would not have done the right thing when considering the target market I am after. Lara and Emily had the answers. Lara and Emily give solutions based on experience and not just any solutions; great solutions. - Hansel Dobbs, Hansel Dobbs Photography
Branding is so much more than building a website or choosing a font for a logo. It's learning about yourself and who you want to be. It's learning your ideal client inside and out and pushing yourself (in a way that will make you proud of yourself every single day). Lara, Emily and Marissa were there every single step of the way, offering reassuring, helpful guidance and advice, cheering me on in the most positive ways and smashing my fears anytime they sensed a fear or insecurity. They took time to get to know me as a person, and in doing so, created the most true-to-me brand I could have imagined. I always had a clear, organized list of tasks to complete and goals to look forward to. I absolutely consider them my true mentors with true gifts of not only being extraordinarily caring people, but also talented beyond words in their branding and creative work. I thank my lucky stars every single day that I was one of the lucky ones to work with Making Brands Happen. - Shannon Reeves, Shannon Reeves Events
A year from now, you will wish you had started today. - Karen Lamb
Hello, friend! Thank you for your interest in Making Brands Happen!
We are happily busy with projects and other ventures (and toddlers!) during this season of our lives, so we are not taking new clients till later in 2014. We will continue to do webinars and individual consulting through the spring of 2014, but we aren’t taking full branding clients during that time. If you are interested in doing consulting or coaching with both of us, email Kristin for details!
Here’s to a great 2014 ahead, friends!
