About

Hello lovely! I’m so glad you are here. I create feminine branding + web designs and I believe that the strongest action for a woman is to love herself, be herself, and shine.

One way to shine is by offering something valuable to the world. You have discovered and developed your talents. You have gained the confidence to step out there and start selling. You are doing it and you are amazing!

But, who am I and why do I care how brightly you shine?

Here’s My Story
I’m Ashley. When I was 30, I lost my husband to death, just nine days after I gave birth to our son. That man was my world and I was shattered into so many pieces I couldn’t fathom survival. One night, just after sunset, I sat all alone holding that newborn against my broken heart. I looked out into the darkness and my 18 month old daughter was standing there, literally glowing. I realized I had a choice. I could surrender or I could rise above it and shine. I choose to shine and my life transformed into something far more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.

What’s Your Story
I want to make your life more beautiful the only way I know how. I want to use my design skills to help you shine even brighter. Because of what I’ve been through, I have a deeper appreciation for life and living. I have a deeper drive to make the world and people in it, sparkle. I want to focus on the good. I want to have courage and be kind.

So that’s my story…. What’s yours?

In order for me to create my magic you’ll need to share with me a part of your soul so I can transfer it into visuals. Those visuals will help show the word your unique shine. With just one look at your branding designs your potential customers will get a tiny glimpse, a sparkle, into who you are and why they should care. And they should care, because, I guarantee, you are spectacular!

How I Helped Them Shine! AKA: A Case Study

I had the pleasure of working with the Tria Baby company. They created a simple product to help parents. Being a new parent myself I was thrilled for the opportunity!

As soon as I heard the name of this brand I knew we had to use triangles but triangles in their raw form are the opposite of soft and sweet. they do not allude to that newborn baby smell that I really wanted to channel. the look we needed for this brand to shine would not be achieved if we settled so we didn’t settle.

I made the triangles look slightly hand drawn and grouped them together, similar to building block toys. the curves of the fonts add to the overall light, airy, playful feel. The colors are cute and classic. They say ‘baby’ without being generic. I love how it all comes together in simplicity!

Here is what the client had to say about the experience and outcome.

“We hired Branding Designs for a branding package and they were a dream to work with. They helped me narrow down my audience, took my thoughts about my brand, and gave me branding that was better than I could have hoped. I plan on using them later for some of my other graphic design work.

If you are looking for someone who will take the time to understand you and your company and transform that into amazing imagery that can take your company to the next level look no further. Thank you Unicorn Branding Designs.”

But it’s just images, appearances. Isn’t there more to business than that? ABSOLUTELY! But people form their opinions based on their senses. The quickest sense is sight. No matter how skilled you are, if people don’t like what they see, chances are they won’t stick around to find out what you are selling. Having the right look is imperative to business success. It sounds shallow but having the right look is an important key you need to success.

More About Me

My prices are reasonable and my client satisfaction is extremely high. I’m honest and dependable. I’m easy going, don’t mind nit-picking (I’ll do plenty myself – I’m a bit of a perfectionist – bonus for you!) and can stick to a deadline. I’m addicted to my new husband and completely adore our five children. I enjoy swimming, leisurely bike rides and eating ice. I believe in light and love and shining from the inside out. I strive to be positive because by having faith and looking on the bright side I’ve always been able to find beauty in even the darkest circumstances. I’m obsessed with gold, Gilmore Girls, and the color pink.

xo, ashley
