design is nothing without process.

we don't just design logos or websites, we build brands with strategy behind them, and here's how. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3...4, 5.

First things first, start by filling out our contact form here. In order to give each project and brand the attention that it deserves, Brighten Made takes on a select number of clients each month. In order to secure your spot on our calendar, a non-refundable deposit is required to start your project.


It’s time to learn more about you + your vision! Brighten Made will send you an in-depth questionnaire to learn more about your business. It focuses on what makes you passionate about what you do, who your target audience is and how you serve them, and your future business dreams. Brighten Made wants to know ALL THE THINGS so that we can build your branding with strategy and a deeper meaning.


A crucial step to establishing your brand is narrowing your focus based off your target audience and exploring your limitations within that. To do this, Brighten Made will present you with a brand discovery document that summarizes key points in your questionnaire, as well as a moodboard and in-depth explanations that describe the meaning behind the imagery, colors, and typography pulled. This will set the overall tone for your branding.


With a clear vision of the impact that we want your brand to have, we’ll begin by mocking up three different concepts. These concepts give us the opporunity to let our creativity run free, exploring all the possibilities for your brand. We’ll work together to refine initial proofs and make sure that the design is meeting all of the goals that we outlined in the explore phase of your project.


Cheers to your new brand! Now it’s time to show it off. Once your project is complete, Brighten Made will provide you with all final files you'll need for print and digital use, along with a branding guide that outlines how to use your logos! Now is also a time for collateral items! Most of Brighten Made's clients add on additional design services such as web design, media kits, print or digital collateral, packaging, and more.
