How  this  Interior  Designer’s  Brand  Image  went  from  Pretty  Good  to  Pretty  Great

Reena  came to me because she needed help supporting her brand vision.  She is an up and coming Seattle based interior designer who recently took the leap to start her own business.

Obviously, I was incredibly inspired by her work, but her website did not reflect her immense talent, her story or her vision.  Most importantly, it was unclear what her message was and who she was trying to message to.

This is a common problem most entrepreneurs find themselves struggling with.  How do you align your image with your message so that your ideal client feels like you understand them.

Let me take you through our process:


This is Reena’s current home page.  It’s a beautiful image of her work, but I’m left a little confused.  I have to go in deeper before I learn that she’s an interior designer.

*Pro Tip:  If you’re making your ideal client work too hard to figure out what you do, I promise you…you’ve already lost them.

Reena was a dream to work with and I couldn’t be more excited to see how her brand is going to develop and grow in 2019.

In my opinion the Reena Ravi Design brand image overhaul was a complete success.
