WE BELIEVE

that finding your values is the first step to creating both a lasting brand, and a life you’re in love with.

At Pinegate Road, we build brands for creative businesses by starting with the foundation. 

Do you hear about how important branding is when it comes to your business, but don't know where to start?

Have you been building your business for a couple months, or even a couple years, and KNOW that in order to get to the next big steps with your business, you need to get your visuals matching with the great things you KNOW your business can provide to the world?

You might feel scattered, like you're trying to work on 'all the things' at once, and generally wish your fairy godmother would pop in, hold you tight, and wave a magic wand and bring everything together so you can build that perfectly put-together business you know you have in you. 

WORK WITH PINEGATE ROAD

                                                                                                                We believe that in order to build a brand that is lasting, and one that truly connects with your audience, you have to start with the basics. You need to find your values to know why you’re building a brand, you need a great brand strategy to make sure everything is working towards your goals, you need a beautiful identity that visualizes your values, you need a website that converts your audience into treasured clients, and most of all, you need the passion to bring your dreams to life. At Pinegate Road, we help you build your brand so you can make your big dreams a reality.

ABOUT KELSEY

My name is Kelsey Cronkhite, and I’m the creative director here at Pinegate Road. Graduating with an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design, you could say visual design has always been my passion. I love helping creative entrepreneurs discover their brand vision by doing deep dives into your values and figuring out the foundation of what actually makes you a brand. I bring my passion for design details and strategy into all that I do. A designer who is a little bit of a nerd at heart, (yes, when you work with me you will not only walk away with swoon-worthy brand elements, but the graphs and data to go along with it), I make sure that each of my clients gets a branding experience that will not only give the face of their business a visual rehaul, but will also solidify their core values and vision.

THE PINEGATE ROAD STORY

This story has a sad start, but has a happy ending. When Kelsey was in the 3rd grade, her mother was diagnosed with cancer. Faced with this diagnosis, her parents decided to stop living the life they thought they 'should' to start living the life they knew they wanted. While her mother was going through treatment, her dad left his job, and her family decided to start over. They built a house on Lake Erie — their dream come true, and started a family business in Pennsylvania. This new life was the foundation that Kelsey grew up in, and is her first experience of people taking life into their own hands to create something spectacular and truly unique. Pinegate Road was the road the house was built on, and the first place that Kelsey really called home. With a cancer-free mother, a father who still runs his family business, and the original house sold to move on to new life adventures, Pinegate Road still fosters a celebration of new beginnings, and big things to come. It's where Kelsey fostered her creativity, and grew up exploring nature in its full glory. Now, she takes the spirit of Pinegate Road with her wherever she goes to help other's build out their big dreams through brand strategy, identity design, and web design. If you're ready to go down Pinegate Road to continue on your journey or start over and build your dream business, she'd love to help you along to keep the Pinegate Road story alive!
