Effective by design
Brand design is about more than just your logo. It’s about resonating with your audience and connecting with them in unforgettable ways. Because of this, Maya takes the time to learn about your business story and branding goals before working with you to evolve your brand.
Partnering with Maya means you can be confident in your branding. Every design decision is based on research and direct insights from your team, positioning your brand for long-term success.
A collaborative, research-based process
This is an example of a typical process. Projects are tailored to each client’s needs.
How much does a brand refresh with Maya cost?
This is like asking how much building a house costs—it depends on scope and timing. Maya has worked on logo-only projects, lighter brand refreshes, and comprehensive brand designs to serve a range of budgets and priorities.
How long does a brand refresh with Maya take?
A comprehensive rebrand can take 3-6 months, depending on deliverables and timeframes. Logo-only and lighter brand refreshes can take 1-2 months. Maya outlines a potential schedule after an intro call if a fit seems likely, accounting for any critical dates on your end.
What am I going to get?
Maya tailors deliverables to be most useful to your priorities.
A comprehensive brand design project often includes:
✳︎ A visual summary of market and audience research insights
✳︎ 100% copyright transfer (no royalties or renewal fees—ever)
✳︎ Logo design (and all versions of logo files)
✳︎ Color palette selection and color codes for digital and print usage
✳︎ Accessibility testing results based on current WCAG standards
✳︎ Typeface selection
✳︎ Ownable icon/illustration suites (custom-drawn)
✳︎ Photography or imagery style identification
✳︎ Brand voice strategy and voice examples
✳︎ Mockups of material with your branding for inspiration
✳︎ Guidebook detailing best practices for implementing your brand
✳︎ Other items requested, such as podcast icons, business card templates, etc.
Can we skip the Discover phase?
Sure, if you just want Maya to make random art for you! (That’s a joke…kind of.) The Discover phase is essential to effective brand design because of the insights uncovered in this phase. Your brand will be strategically designed to resonate with targeted audiences while standing out from your competition.
Where did Maya learn branding and marketing?

She developed her brand design and strategy chops over years of working with Landor & Fitch, the renowned branding agency, and her marketing knowledge grew exponentially when she helped Seth Godin launch his Marketing Seminar course.
