Your clients walk away from the project with a design that you aren't 100% about.

You feel drained after each client - creatively and emotionally.

You feel like your work got watered down throughout the project.

Your projects start out with you at the helm but end with you just taking orders and executing.

You feel like your work is looking a little too much like everyone elses'.

You want your business to sustain, not just survive. 

Does this sound familiar?

Hey there, fellow designer! I have a question for you.

Is your work strategic? 
Or is it just scratching the surface?

It doesn't have to be this way. I want to show you how to deepen your design process with strategy and story so your business can thrive and your work can be magnetic. 

Want to know more? 

Where do you see your business in 5 years?
Will you be working for yourself or someone else? Is your design process built on trends and "what's in right now"? How will that sustain you - now, in 5 years, what about in 10 years?

Designers - I see you out there. You’re in a crowded marketplace, with lots of talent, trying to do killer work that to attract new clients and create work that will set you apart. The only way to rise above this ever-growing sea of competition is to add more meaning to your process. Meaning and thought can't be copied and only add to the value of your work. When your design is built upon a strategic story aimed directly at customers, your entire process becomes stronger. Your clients trust you, rely on your opinion, and want your expertise. 


You get more referrals, you control the outcome of your work, you become known for your unique design style, and you make more money. Sounds pretty perfect, right? Despite what it might look like online (ahem - Instagram), not everyone knows (a.) what brand strategy REALLY is and (b) how to actually implement it in their own design business. Sure, everyone can call themselves a strategist but if you aren't doing the work you're just another designer. And there are lots of those out there.

And what happens when your work is beautiful and works for your client's business?

I have reworked, launched, and concepted brands for over 100 clients who have spanned industries, expertise and personality types (that’s over 20 clients a year!). Saying those numbers makes me a little uncomfortable since it’s not my style to toot my own horn, but I am proud of the breadth of work that has been created with and for my clients.

I am Ann Parker, the founder & creative force behind Anthem Creative Co.
