Portfolio: Brand Identity Design for Amy Paine
Amy Paine is a portrait photographer, who loves helping others and making a difference.
In addition to doing portrait photography, she also offers her "Just Me Experience", where she helps women realize their beauty and make them feel loved, worthy, and enough.
From the moment I read Amy's branding questionnaire, I knew that she would be one of my favorite clients. Like her, I enjoy conversations around body image and hearing stories about my own clients.
Why I'm excited about sharing this project
As a brand designer, my mission is to provide my clients an experience.
A journey from what it was previously to what it is.
Confident, clear, and consistent. An empowering new brand identity and design.
Amy provides the same experience for her own clients.
A journey who she was to who she is and will become.
Empowering, strong, and confident. A transformational journey and experience.
Amy wanted her brand to feel genuine, simple, beautiful, and comfortable. Emotional, safe, and monochromatic, so I stayed with the basics and kept it simple, clean, and modern.
ideal client attraction
All her of clients are unique, but they all have one thing in common: they want the Just Me Experience.
Women who come to her are in a transition period: from hating their bodies to realizing just how powerful and incredible it truly is. They're starting to appreciate their bodies and wants to experience life to its fullest.
Her ideal client is between the age of 30-60. Someone who has been trying to prove her worth in a job that would historically and societally be deemed as a man's job (CEO, project manager in a construction company, or a go-to in the tech industry). Has a few close friends she is constantly making plans with, which usually involve an outdoor/energetic activity and drinks afterward.
her client experience — prep guide
Branding is all about experiences and how people see you.
For her Just Me Experience, we wanted her clients to feel empowered, inspired, prepared, and ready to have a great time in Amy's studio.
Within her prep guide, we included:
A welcome letter from Amy
How to prepare for the photoshoot
Before the session: 1 month, 3 to 5 days, and day before
What to do the day of
How to get ready, what to bring, and a few reminders
Pricing - both collections and individual prints
Info about additional products that are both timeless and empowering
Portraits, wall art, albums, and legacy boxes
When you are able to present all the relevant information in a beautiful, clean format, it sends a message to your clients that you know what you're doing and that they're not just paying for another service.
They're here for your brand experience.
“I am very excited to start giving my branded welcome guide to my future Just Me clients. I know it presents my work and all the information in a simple, cohesive, and pretty way. Having Molly find the perfect fonts and create these branding elements saved me a lot of time, and that’s what I valued most! Now that she has my brand elements, it would be so easy to send over inspiration for another design idea, and for her to run with it. She’s such a great resource—and also a lovely woman to know.”
