Branding and Website Designer

"All I want to be focusing on is my business and giving the hands on care and time to my clients"

“Holy hell Mel! She has taken care of my logo, my branding, my site and walked me through every process of getting myself branded. Really, all I want to be focusing on is my business and giving the hands on care and time to my clients healing and not having to worry that I have to put hours and hours, oh so many hours, it takes to work on branding yourself when you have no idea what you’re doing.

She is beyond worth your time and she gives you such a personal touch that you’re going to feel like she is instantly your friend! Thanks again for helping me. I’m actually excited to show my business off now.”

"If you’re considering hiring Melissa with The Branded Academy, JUST DO IT!"​

Oh where to start? I coordinate weddings, I am not a web designer. Coding is not my thing, so this was a daunting task. From the beginning when I connected with Melissa and told her my vision, she knew to use layman’s terms with me. She made the process simplified and easy for me. She asked me questions like “What does your ideal office space look like?” To draw out the style I wanted for my new look.

Melissa redesigned my logo, she plugged her own extensive knowledge of WordPress (in my instance), and designed a beautifully crafted website for my clients to discover. I am thrilled with the outcome, but was delighted with the process. Melissa is a one of a kind and I recommend her to help you with your branding process with no reservations!
