Waverley Design Co » Custom websites and branding

I was so excited when ErynLeigh asked me to do her branding! She is so rad and and amazing photographer. There’s something so amazing to me about destination wedding photographers. These people just KNOW how to capture love in the best most authentic way, and Eryn is no exception.

Her brand is very organic, clean, and genuine. We got a lot of inspiration from the Pacific Northwest–that’s why we’ve named it “The Portland.” A lot of green and gray, moody and beautiful images as well. We started out with a mountain logo and made a complete 180 and ended with what you see below.

Go check out her website! I also was able to take her head shots, you can see those here.

ErynLeigh is an amazing photographer–I’m so happy I’ve been able to work with her! I loved all the inspiration we gathered for this brand. Come see our board on pinterest to see where it all started! One thing that I love is that we actually got a lot of inspiration from her own work!

When talking to Eryn the words that she used to describe her ideal brand were clean, organic, and simple. I really think we achieved it with what we have!

I loved Start With Why!

I posted about Start With Why once on my instagram and thought I’d do a review–mostly because I think everyone should read this book! I ask all my clients, “Why are you in business?” and “What keeps your creative juices flowing?” and I think too few of us know WHY we’re in business. We know HOW we do business and that’s where we start. But we need to Star with WHY we are in business.

And newsflash it’s not, to make money.

Start With Why by Simon Sinek¬†really came to me at the perfect time. I have just graduated and I’m building this business and it feels like it’s helping me get off in the right foot. I love that it’s aimed towards business and not just generalized but it also can help me in other aspects in life as well.

Star rating: 5/5

Inspiring: 5/5

Motivating: 4/5

Who should read it?: Anyone! Especially if you’re an entrepreneur! But anyone thinking about what to do with their lives would benefit.

Would you read it again?: Yes! I think I read it at the perfect time for me. I just finished school and have been working on being an entrepreneur full time. I think I’d read it again if I get in a slump or I feel lost. I also think I’d read parts of it when needed.

Easy to read?: I think so! Lots of examples and a clear understanding of what he’s explaining.

What’s the gist of the book?: Well put simply by Simon Sinek, people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. It talks about being an inspiration to those around you, and about how having your heart and mind in the right place help to make business better.

How did you hear about it?: I heard about it a fair few times from other entrepreneurs while attending lectures at school. I also had a professor talk to me about it!

So what’s my why?

I help other business owners live their dream lives. I help them by getting their businesses running and building their online presence. This gives them the freedom to do the work they love while I take care of the website and brand.. So they can live the life of their dreams.

 

Ok everyone, Jennifer Funk Designs is now LIVE!! I’m so happy with how this website and brand turned out. I named it “The Cinque Terre” because of all the bright pops of color!! It reminded me so much of Monterosso Al Mare that I just couldn’t resist. Jennifer is an amazing woman and her art is fantastic. I was really so honored to be apart of this brand.
