Design Opens Doors

Collaborative re-brand experience for
creative entrepreneurs who want a brand that’s
as unique as they are.

Does your current brand represent where your business is going?

Maybe it did when you first started your business, but that feels like so long ago.

You’ve grown so much since then, and you can feel that you’re on the brink of another transformation.

You have the vision for where you want to take your business, and you’re ready to make it happen - which feels exciting, but also scary.

You have the vision and know where you want to take your business, but do you ever feel a little unsure what your next step should be?

You know it's time for a rebrand, because you need that credibility and recognition that comes with a professional brand in order to get to the next level in your business.

But you’re not even sure how to articulate your vision clearly, much less translate that into a visual brand.

What if your brand could grow and evolve with you?

What if the process of creating that timeless brand could give you more than just a visual representation of your vision, but also give you clarity and focus to move forward with that vision and make it a reality?

The truth is, getting clarity is the first step toward creating a brand that truly and authentically represents you.

In fact, the only way to create a timeless brand that evolves with i is to dig deep and get clear on who you are and where you’re going.

When done right, your brand can open doors and take your business anywhere you want to go.


Sharing your brand and feeling confident that it accurately reflects your strengths as a business owner and the direction your business is going.

Knowing your strengths and having them visually represented through your brand.

Feeling proud to share your brand with the world and excited knowing that you had everything you needed to grow your business, gain visibility and get the recognition your business deserves.

Building an elevated brand starts with diving deep and looking within.

Before you even start thinking about the visuals of your brand, you have to get to the core of who you are and where you want to take your business.

You have to dive deep and get insanely clear on your strengths, your vision, and what you have to offer.

This is the foundation on which you can build a visual brand that truly represents you, no matter where your business grows.

You deserve more than a surface level brand, that only lasts a year or two,
before you outgrow it again.

You deserve a brand...

  • that authentically tells your story and that grows with you.

  • that builds connections and credibility.

  • that’s infused with your personality and voice.

  • and that opens doors to possibilities you never would have imagined for your business.

Let’s build a timeless brand that that evolves with you as you grow your business to the next level and beyond.

Design Opens Doors

Design Opens Doors is a rebranding partnership where you’ll be intimately involved throughout the entire design process.

We’ll work together through an organic process of intense collaboration, and dive into the core of your business, your strengths, and the things that make you truly unique.

From there, I’ll translate your uniqueness and your vision into a timeless visual brand that embodies who you are now, and can evolve with you as your business grows.

You’ll be intimately involved at every step of the way, so that you can take true ownership of your brand and what it represents.

Here’s what to expect:

Design Opens Doors follows a 5 Step Framework, that starts by digging deep and getting personal, and allows room for organic collaboration along the way.

We’ll start with a strategy session where we get to the heart and core of your business. Be prepared to dig deep and face some tough questions. Because in order to create a timeless brand that truly embodies your vision, you might have to get a little uncomfortable. But I promise, it’ll be worth it. You’ll get a lot of clarity into the core of your brand and who you are as a business owner, and I’ll get a lot of clarity that will allow me to create a visual representation of your vision.

Get comfy in your Co-Pilot seat, because you’ll be right along side me through every step of your rebrand process. Once we’ve agreed on a shared vision and mood board for your brand, I’ll get started on the first sketches. You’ll get to peek inside my designer’s brain, see the early pencil sketches, and understand the process that goes into creating your brand from the start.

You’ll start to see your creative vision come to life through your logo. By getting involved from the very start and seeing the early sketches, you’ll be able to take ownership of your brand.  I’ll take your favorite sketches and develop them further until we land on a logo that you love. We’ll also create a custom pattern (or three) that’s inspired by your logo and creative vision.

This is where your brand really starts to come together. Your designs will become tangible as you see them in action on business cards and social media templates. You’ll start to see your visual system falling into place, and be able to picture what it will look like to put these designs out into the world.

You made it to the end! Now you get to see your full brand - logo files, social media templates, + style guide - neatly packaged and ready to launch. By the time we finish with your brand redesign, you’ll not only have a timeless brand that represents your vision for your business, you’ll have the focus and clarity you need to bring that vision to life.

Who is Design Opens Doors For?

Design Opens Doors is not for everyone. It requires you to dig deep, answer tough questions, and be really honest with yourself. But if you trust the process, and you’re willing to get uncomfortable, you’ll end up with a brand that is truly unique to you, because you’ve taken ownership of it.

Design Opens Doors has gotten great results for creative entrepreneurs who:

  • Have been in business for a few years and feel that their current brand no longer represents them.
  • Have evolved as business owners, and want a brand that will continue to evolve with them.
  • Have a vision for their business, but have a hard time articulating exactly what it looks like, and need to find clarity in order to see it through.
  • Are willing to get uncomfortable, and look within in order create a brand that is a true reflection of themselves.
  • Want to be involved in the process and take ownership of their brand.

These are some of the results creative entrepreneurs, like you, have gotten after rebranding through the Design Opens Doors process:

“When we started working together, I just thought I needed a new logo. But I've come out on the other side of my rebrand collaboration with Illiah of C&V with a clearer vision of where J’Adorn Designs is headed and where I want to take it, plus the confidence to take the steps to get there. The visual brand Illiah created for me is so strong and polished, like what I want my work to be. It's given me a space to grow into as an artist instead of just being a banner over top of what I'm already doing. My new brand has opened a new chapter for me as a jeweler that I don't think I could have imagined if I hadn’t worked with C&V.”

Alison Jefferies

Owner and Designer, J'Adorn Designs

“After months of keeping an eye out for a designer that could potentially match my vision for a rebrand - I knew Illiah from C&V was the one! Her ability to incorporate a lot of color was what drew me to her initially. Once we started working together - I felt confident that together we would create the perfect new Oh Yes. Illiah is an incredibly talented artist and designer, she is quick to listen and encourage, but also not afraid to step in when design is compromised. It was a total collaboration from beginning to end and we both walked away with a total sense of pride in the final product. Best of all - I found a genuine friendship in the process! She continues to be a cheerleader for Oh Yes and I cannot wait to continue finding ways for our worlds to collide.”

Kathy Dixon

Founder & Creative Director, Oh Yes Communications

“I decided to work with Illiah by recommendation from a friend. After speaking with Illiah and seeing some of her work I knew I had to hire her. She has gone above and beyond when it comes to my YouTube branding and more. My YouTube videos have tripled the amount of times they get clicked since using her graphics, and every time she sends me a new graphic, I'm constantly amazed by her talent! I've tried for three years to create graphics, and in one week, she's taken my brand further than I could have ever imagined. There is no price I could put on what Illiah has done for my brand.”
