About us

Our purpose is to empower your brand to be a leader, energize your audience and staff with purpose, and speed up the rate you reach your goals.

We’re passionate about all things brand.

Your brand is the identity that you are presenting to the world, and it’s the foundation of how you connect with your audience, lead a team, and make your mark in your industry.

Through many years of experience and working with dozens of clients, we saw a common thread. Many businesses are misaligned with their purpose and lack a strategy and visual identity that represents them properly and sets them apart. We’ve had the privilege to solve this for businesses in many different industries, and our clients have seen great success as a result of the work we’ve done together.

Whether you are a small business or a large enterprise, our training covers fundamental principles that will align your brand, vision, people, and marketing. With this newfound clarity, your business will have better results that are built on a solid foundation to grow.

A powerful vision to unlock your potential and live your purpose

In 2017, Hannah and DJ left their well-paying jobs to risk it all and start a branding studio. People said it’s impossible to do this in Saskatchewan. But the drive to fulfill our purpose overcame any lingering doubt. Fast forward 5 years and we’ve become a full-service branding studio, serving clients across Canada.

It was far from easy, and now we want to empower entrepreneurs, leaders, and teams to overcome obstacles and align with a shared vision to fulfill their purpose.
