What is it really like to rebrand your business? Ashley Pardo is a certified nutritional therapist and she’s also a Pinegate Road client! Over the past several months Ashley and I have been working together to launch her new brand. She’s transitioned her business from being “The Grizzly Kitchen” to operating under her own name and we’ve done everything from working through her brand visioning to creating her new experience design, logo, website, and social media strategy. This episode will give you a sense of what it’s like to work with Pinegate Road but also more generally what it’s like to go through a rebranding process. You’ll also gain insights into the impact this can have on you personally, such growing your confidence. Ashley offers a really clear “before and after” snapshot that will help you determine whether hiring a graphic designer is right for you. She also shares her process of working with clients and helping them have a happier, more intuitive relationship with food.

Topics we cover:

— Tips for choosing a color palette for your brand
