Dare to Imagine

  • What if you knew exactly how to connect with your audience and build excitement around your brand?
  • What if you could clearly communicate your value to help convert your audience into loyal customers with staying power?
  • What if you had more time to focus on running your business while also being able to market yourself and stand out from your competitors?

Effective brand design is about more than the look and feel of your brand. It’s a holistic experience that helps you see (and communicate) the big picture.

Memorable brands speak to the heart and soul of their ideal customer, while remaining authentic to their own guiding principles, values, and vision.

Uncover your brand's superpower

For some businesses, branding is a superpower. For others, it’s an obstacle that gets in the way of their success. I take great pride in helping business owners elevate their brands through intentional and elegant design.

If you’ve outgrown the DIY branding solution you used when you first started your business...

If you don't want to work with a big, expensive marketing agency where you don't feel seen or heard...

If you’ve been spinning your wheels online trying to get your ideal customers to notice you...

My process has been carefully curated to create a guided, worry-free experience.

01. Onboarding

We'll start out by scheduling a free consultation to get to know one another and talk about your goals for your business. If we're a good fit, I'll send along a proposal, contract & deposit invoice for your review. Typically, a 50% deposit is required upfront to confirm your booking, although I do offer payment plans as well! When it's time to begin your project, we'll schedule a kickoff call to go over the project timeline in detail, so you can feel informed & confident about what to expect moving forward.

02. Discovery

You'll start by completing my Onboarding Questionnaire before your project begins. This questionnaire gives me a chance to learn more about your company, your customers, your goals for the project, and your vision for your brand. Based on your responses, I will create a brand blueprint that summarizes your brand goals, customer profile, tone, etc. and put together a mood board for your brand that will help guide us through the design phase. You'll have a chance to provide feedback on the brand blueprint & mood board so that we can nail down your design direction.

03. Brand Design

I’ll create your main logo and variations, your brand color palette, and select your brand fonts, and put them all together into a beautiful presentation for you. You’ll be able to see how everything fits together and forms a cohesive impression that aligns with your brand blueprint & mood board. You'll have the opportunity to provide feedback and we'll go through up to two rounds of refinements until everything is perfect. Once your brand design is finalized, I'll create your marketing collateral pieces to match.

04. Web Design

If your package includes a website, you'll complete my Website Workbook while I'm working on perfecting your brand design,. The workbook will help us nail down your website goals, desired features, technical details, and roles & responsibilities for the website build. When the workbook is complete, I'll create a suggested sitemap and homepage design outline to present to you. We'll then hop on a 1:1 strategy session to go over your workbook responses together and finalize the sitemap. After you've provided content for each of the agreed-upon pages, I'll execute the rest of the site design.

05. Launch

After your final balance has been paid, I’ll send you your brand assets – logo files, all of your marketing collateral pieces, a completed Brand Manual – and transfer website ownership to you. Now it's time to share your gorgeous brand & website with the world! We’ll select a launch date to make your website live and debut your social media launch graphics announcing your new brand. You’ll have two weeks of post-launch support in case any questions arise.

Your brand design roadmap

Once we embark on your brand journey, I’ll devote one-on-one time to gain insight into your business, your customers, and your unique vision. I will also clearly outline each phase of the design process to ensure you feel informed and supported every step of the way. 

BY THE END OF YOUR JOURNEY:
  • You’ll have a custom-fit branding package that makes you irresistible to your ideal customer
  • Every client touchpoint will be thoughtfully branded & visually appealing  
  • You’ll be positioned to convert more casual website visitors into loyal customers
  • Your existing customers will be engaged and even more excited to interact with your brand

Does this sound like you?

You’re looking for a creative partner who can help you grow your business through captivating and purposeful design.

Maybe you feel that your website is outdated and provides a clumsy user experience.

Maybe you’re a small business owner who knows you could make a BIG impact if only you had a little help.

Or maybe you’re looking for a passionate creative who can help guide your brand’s evolution and decide when to shake things up.

hey there!

I'm Molly Drake, the designer & branding expert behind Parson Lane

I founded Parson Lane in 2018 to help purpose-driven small business owners develop brands that elevate and inspire. 

Since then, I’ve worked with dozens of small businesses to help them discover their limitless potential through great design. 

As a small business owner myself, I understand the amount of passion, grit and fortitude it takes to build and maintain a successful business, and I would love to help you build a distinctive brand that can help take yours to the next level.

The Elevated Branding package is a 6-week intensive. In just 6 weeks, you’ll have everything you need to launch a successful brand and take your business to the next level! For the Elevated Brand & Website package, expect a 10 to 12 week timeline, depending on the complexity of your website.

Building a custom, strategy-led brand together requires honesty, engagement, and input from you! You’ll be asked to complete several workbooks/questionnaires throughout the project, and to give timely feedback on the designs. If you’re including a website, you will also need to provide all of the text content. Each package has a set timeline with benchmarks along the way, and I will hold you accountable to the project deadlines! If you’re feeling like you don’t have the bandwidth to devote 2-3 hours per week (or more during the web design phase) to this project, I would definitely recommend waiting to book until you have more time available. Trust me – taking the time to develop a strategic & thoughtful brand will be so worth it in the end.

Currently, I am not offering standalone web design. I’ve found that I can do my best work and achieve the best results for my clients when we start with the basics of brand strategy & design, and go from there to create a fully customized website. My branding & web design package is carefully crafted to provide a cohesive brand experience for your audience. I would encourage you to consider the value that custom branding would add to your business!

At the end of your project, you will receive:

  • Your logo files in PNG, JPG, AI and SVG format for every variation, as well as plain black and plain white versions of select variations
  • An in-depth Brand Manual PDF, with your full brand identity design laid out and over 30 pages of practical information about how to use and understand your brand assets
  • Print-ready PDFs of your business cards, branded card, and one-page collateral PDF
  • Social media launch graphics and cover photos for the social channels of your choosing
  • If including a website, you’ll also receive a Website Manual PDF which includes important technical details about your website, as well as the video recording of your website training session
