You could continue to DIY parts of your brand and website only to have it feeling flat and disjointed. 

You know relying on friends and family for favours without a solid vision and strategy is not going to get you what you want.

If only you could ignore the issue and simply do nothing but that sinking feeling you get every time someone asks if you have a website tells you this isn’t the way.

What they said - VBC client feedback


"The entire process has been wonderful! You took random ideas I had and created a brand identity that beautifully reflects my personality and the values and mission of my business. You’ve made this incredibly daunting and overwhelming task fun and exciting!”

kavita mohan

"​​Working with Vanessa has been one of the greatest experiences in my career!"

Claire Whittaker

"My website is now gorgeous! I love sending people there to learn more about my business and offers. I booked 2 discovery calls in the first 2 days - both through my website. I feel ecstatic! It is just what I wanted. It feels like the perfect transition into being full time in business.”

How do we ensure great design?

Our creative process has a natural ebb and flow where we work together to distill and refine from first concepts to final product. Sometimes we get it right on the first try or sometimes it takes 2-3 rounds of revisions. Regardless, we check in with you every step of the way to see if you’re ready to move forward or would like to continue refining. Our open communication and feedback loops ensure your utmost satisfaction.

how long is the process & what's my time commitment?

Here’s what others have asked before working with us.


Brand design typically takes about 4-6 weeks. Branding with web design takes about 8-12 weeks but will vary depending on the complexity and size of your website. Your time commitment will be about 1-4 hours per week as we'll be looking for ongoing design feedback along with some homework items throughout the process. Some clients are quick decision makers where as others need time to reflect and process. If you're the later, then we'll budget a little extra space in our project timeline. 




We do! We've built shops with a just a few products to full blown Shopify stores with hundreds of items for sale. To discuss your e-commerce needs, please reach out via our contact form.




A logo is one small component of a complete brand identity. Our process is comprehensive and not ideal for clients looking for just a logo. We truly believe we can best serve you through our Brand Design packages which include colour palette, typography styling, logo design, and more. Please refer to our Services page for more information. 




We work with Showit, Squarespace, Shopify, and WordPress websites built with the DIVI theme builder by Elegant Themes. For real estate clients, we use the My Real Page website builder or for custom WordPress the My Real Page or KV Core plugin. We also have experience working with WIX and WordPress Elementor.




Social Media Design can be quoted as an add-on to your Brand Design package. 




We've worked on projects requiring business cards, notepads, magnets, thank you cards, and even bus stop signs! We'll provide you with the final PDF files ready to be sent to your favourite printer. We'd be happy to provide a quote for print collateral as part of your Brand Design package. 




Yes! Once we decide on the deliverables in your project, we'll break down the amount into milestone payments. A deposit is required to book your project and any remaining amount is divided up in equal payments over the course of our time together. We accept electronic fund transfers and credit card payments. 


You’re so worthy of a new season in business and all that it holds for you. Let us create your cohesive brand and website so you can focus on doing more of the work you love.
