As talked about on Logo Geek.

The Brand Style Guide Builder makes it easy to produce a brand style guide. Sections are already written, laid out and ready to go! Just add logos, client-specific information and review the copy.

Charge more for branding work

Designer making more money.I’ve charged clients more than $1,000 for a style guide alone!

But when you bundle a brand style guide as part of your brand identity work, your logo designs, you add so much more value.

And you should charge for that!

Providing a guide to help them have consistent branding has tremendous value and helps protect the investment they just made for a logo design.

Stand out from other logo designers

Male designer standing out from other designers.When clients see that you’re anticipating their needs by providing a brand style guide, you’ll stand out from all the other logo designers out there and get more respect.

Many designers do not provide a style guide or they just provide what the client asks for.

You’ll go from being seen as a “logo designer” who’s just drawing a logo and sending them the files to a branding expert who knows in advance what they need!

Maintain brand integrity

Group of designers.With a brand style guide, your design work is less likely to get messed with by an employee or subcontractor gone rogue.

They will all be able to refer to your brand style guide to keep things consistent and looking as good and as you intended.

You’ll be helping them be successful at taking what they’ve just invested in for branding and understanding how to use it.

Be more profitable

The Brand Style Guide Builder will pay for itself many times over the first time you use it. You will add value to your logo design work, so you can charge more, and save tons of time creating a brand style guide, so you can be more profitable.

What Customers Have Said

“This style guide is as good as anything I’ve seen from big agencies. The time saved on one project pays for itself. In the past, I would have just winged it and end up with a hodge podge of fonts, colors, and spacing.”
