{branding} look professional. be consistent. stand out.

as soon as you pop up your logo image on your facebook page, or send out your first package to a client, you have started creating a brand. like it or not, you are making an impression. one of the easiest things you can do to have a professional image is to be consistent. consistency builds trust and recognition. recognition will help you stand out and be memorable.

i read this on moo.com's twitter feed today: packaging should make you want to see what's inside. brands should do the same. shouldn't they?

i am creating a workbook that will help you create a kick ass brand, which will be coming out very soon. but in the meantime i thought i would share an example of some of the branding for my little biz. perhaps it will give you some ideas. put your best foot forward, be creative and memorable, be consistent, and think about the image you are sending out to the world about your biz.
