Artistic Branding for Small Business

You deserve the tools that will give you connection to the people that you want to work with the most.    

Strategic & Artistic Brands. Sophistication & Consistency.

Headshot Jess Malli Mercier

Do you wonder how you can get your business to stand out? 

Do you spend hours working on a single graphic? Does your social media look like a different person is posting every single day? Do you have a logo but still feel like you are missing the thing that pulls it all together?

A full strategic and artistic brand can be the thing that brings your business to the next level. Your font choices will be less haphazard and more cohesive. Your color palette will be designed with you and your ideal clients in mind. You will have a roadmap both conceptually and visually that will cut through the noise and make your business stand out from the competition.

You will know more about your ideal client. You will have clear goals, a true identity, and a voice that will help you reach your dreams faster and with more confidence. You will have the consistency you deserve, and you will spend less time designing and more time doing what you do best, serving your clients.

My Approach

The space where artistic intuition meets strategy.



The importance of clear and open communication between myself and clients is the key to my process. I encourage people  to express their ideas, preferences, and concerns openly, fostering an environment where feedback is constructive and welcomed. Effective communication ensures that everyone is aligned with the project's goals and vision. Scheduled meetings ensure that all areas of the design are covered, and that nothing gets lost in emails.



From the initial stages of brainstorming and conceptualization, I believe that intuition often leads to fresh and innovative ideas that can set our work apart from the competition. I foster an environment of creative thinking without the constraints of conventional norms or limitations. It is my secret sauce. I listen and solve problems through exploration and energy.



You are the expert in your business. I am here as a catalyst. Promoting collaboration between myself and my clients throughout the design process is paramount for success. Clients will be a large part of discussions about concepts, drafts, and revisions, as I seek their input and feedback at every stage. Collaboration ensures that the final marketing materials meet the client's expectations while leveraging my expertise and creativity.



While emotions play a significant role in marketing, I believe it's essential to balance emotional appeal with rational thinking. I encourage designers and clients to critically evaluate the emotional impact of their ideas and ensure they align with the brand's values and objectives. I emphasize the importance of authenticity and genuine connection with the audience, including telling stories through visual representation.

Robyn White - RDW Design Studio

My standards are high and I know I can be hard to please but from the very beginning of working with Jess I felt I could trust her. She asked all the right questions and had a clear process that she guided me through. Her artistic intuition gives her a unique ability to see the whole vision, something many brand strategists lack. I highly recommend Jess if you're looking for a first class experience from an intuitive brand strategist with an artistic vision who will just get you.
