Beautiful Brands

Whether you’re starting a new business, or are currently already in business, there’s no doubt you understand the importance of developing a cohesive brand identity. Your brand identity includes everything from the colours and typefaces you use, to even non-visual elements like the tone of your copy, and will affect how your audience perceive you or your business, and in turn how they interact.

With social media such an big part of marketing, the way businesses present visually is becoming more and more important. A half cocked DIY logo can actually damage your business’s ability to speak to your ideal customers.

I’m Emily, owner and founder of Upon A Time, and graphic designer. I’m passionate about helping creative entepreneurs start their dream businesses with a clear and solid brand identity so they can be confident in their business. Our packages include options for brand discovery, brand design, print marketing design and web design. And if you’re starting your first business, and not sure of all the ins-and-outs of that, we can help with that too.

We offer graphic design services to small businesses and individuals wanting to either brand or rebrand. We have a unique and distinct style and love working with clients who want to move away from the commercial logo styles and into something unique with a boutique feel.

We currently offer some starter packages for logo design, with optional add-ons. These prices are a starting point to give potential clients an idea of pricing, but please be aware that some jobs may incur additional costs if we foresee a more difficult design or process, so please contact us for a quote to get accurate pricing for your project.
