Why do you think top brands invest so much in brand identity ?

because if your brand sucks, so will your sales.

eShop owners have to be as good, if not better, at creating a visual buy-in than brick-and-mortars.







most Shopify stores suck at visual brand identity - leaving $$$$ on the table.






90% of your brand stickiness is visual.

FACT: Physical product margins are slim, so you can't afford to lose even one buyer ...

Save time and frustration when shopping props and designing sets with the style guide

Create a style guide that’ll be your visual identity bible and can be easily handed off when you’re ready to hire a professional photographer

Your brand identity is so much more than your logo, fonts and colors. Find your voice and design a recognizable brand aesthetic that’s immediately identifiable as yours and prioritizes your customer. This is the exact process that the graphic designers at national ad agencies use to define brand standards, but you don’t need to know the first thing about marketing or advertising to create your own unique and memorable style.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't have a big camera, is this course for me?

Absolutely! This course is focused on teaching you how to create a cohesive and compelling visual brand identity and you can do that with either a phone or a big camera.

I’M PRETTY GOOD AT TAKING PICS OF MY PRODUCTS, IS THIS COURSE FOR ME?

It sure is! This course is so much more than the tech of taking a picture. Although we’ll talk some tech, this course is a holistic approach to designing and effectively communicating a signature brand story using visual assets.

CAN MY EMPLOYEE TAKE THIS COURSE?

Of course! The objective of this course is to build a repeatable and reliable visual brand identity blueprint that you can follow yourself or hand-off to an employee to manage.

WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THE COURSE?

We’ll have a series of six live 2-hour, hands-on workshops over the course of 8 weeks. I’ll walk you through each lesson step-by-step, while you work along on your end and ask questions on the spot.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS IN-BETWEEN SESSIONS?


This course includes a private Facebook group, especially for our cohort. You can post your pictures and questions and ask for feedback directly from me (and the other shop owners) in the group.

DO I NEED SPECIAL SOFTWARE FOR THIS COURSE?

We use Adobe Lightroom in this course. There’s a free mobile version available, but we’ll be working in the desktop version of the Lightroom Workshop. There’s a minimal subscription fee of about $10/month for Lightroom, but you can download a free trial for the course - I’ll let you know when to do that.

I DON’T HAVE A MAC. CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE IN THE LIGHTROOM WORKSHOP?

Absolutely! Adobe Lightroom is available for pc’s, too.

DO I NEED ADOBE PHOTOSHOP FOR THIS COURSE?

Nope. This course is about getting the shot right in-camera and not relying on Photoshop to fix an image.

IS THE COURSE PRE-RECORDED?

I teach the hands-on workshops live, so you can ask me questions in real-time. Don’t worry if you’re not able to join live though; every session will be recorded and loaded into the member’s area.

WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE RECORDINGS?

Yes! You’ll have unlimited access to your own personal members area, where all of the lessons and accompanying worksheets will live.

I FEEL OVERWHELMED WITH MY BUSINESS, HOW WILL I KNOW IF THIS IS WORTH MY TIME?

It’s completely natural to feel overwhelmed - you wear a lot of hats in your business! I created this course for people just like you, because I want to help systematize the creative process, so you have more time to do alll the other things.

I DON’T HAVE A TON OF SPACE - CAN I STILL BUILD A STUDIO?

Yes! I teach you how to build a studio anywhere, whether you have an entire room to dedicate, a single wall, or just your dining room table. You don’t need a house that looks like it came out of Architectural Digest.

i want in!

This is the only time I'll be running this workshop series at this low price!
