Nice to meet you, I'm Tes — I'm here to help you uplevel your
branding so you can step into your authentic power and attract your soulmate clients.
After years of creating brands and launching creative campaigns in top-level advertising agencies, I quit my job to see more of the world.
Fast forward 3 months, feet in the sand, coconut in my hand, I had this big moment of clarity.
I was grinding my life away for businesses with values often wildly different from mine run by people I sometimes never even got to meet. So I decided I was not going back.
WORKING FOR CAUSES
I BELIEVE IN WITH
PEOPLE I ADMIRE.
Starting my business did not come without struggle, but making this step was one of the best things I ever did.
My heart explodes if I think about all the amazing women I work with and the cool things we create together.
I no longer work for people, but we put our energies together towards creating something better than we both could have imagined.
“Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple, and it is also that difficult.”
— Warren G Bennis
A CREATIVE MIRROR
And the best thing is not just creating beautiful branding. It's what happens after we finish our project.
I once read a quote that really stuck with me: "Becoming a leader is becoming yourself", and I think that describes beautifully what I help my clients do.
During our time together, clients are compelled to evaluate every aspect of their business, and I am right there to give them a creative reflection of what they're giving me. Turning them into visual identities that give them that 'wow' upgrade, attracting clients they're stoked about.
Starting my professional life off in advertising I had to work with clients given to me, which taught me how to adapt to any style and not just the one everyone is rocking right now. But there is a big butt, and it is not just mine. I do have two styles I love the most and therefore create the best results:
Boutique style design:
Elegant, feminine can be very detailed but still organized.
Colourful & bubbly design:
Bold colours, minimalistic design with a nice big font baby.
Synergy — I don't build magnetic brands. We do. Putting our energies together to create is essential for yummy results.
Distinctiveness — Making your brand fit in is easy, but what will make it stand out? What makes you distinctive? I created a system to helps you uncover this with ease.
Businesship — I want to call it friendship, but I'm trying to keep it professional over here ;) I don't mean I'll come to hang out at your place for some wine & cheese, but I do believe trust is what makes a good process.
Yes, I made the right decision! I hired Tessa. Choosing a brand designer is a tough choice. Can they understand my vision? Are they able to come up with different directions? Can they actually deliver on all the necessary brand assets? And are they fun to work with? She delivered on every wish I had. She was genuinely interested in my story. She could quickly turn it into diverging branding routes. She designed the core branding aspects, but also all the digital assets I needed to launch. And I enjoyed every session we had together.
Let me introduce you to my split personality ;) I have this one side that likes to wake up early, eat healthily and go on peaceful mountain hikes, pets every single dog, and gets very excited about good chocolate.
But then there's this other side, a forever nomad with an excessive coffee drinking habit that loves crossfit and riding motorcycles and stays up all night to listen to some dark electronic music.
Think we'd get along? Ready to make this official?
