Charley and Co. – Premade Branding Package

Charley and Co. Logo Mark by Melissa Carter Design

This design is fresh, modern and crisp. Utilizing this logo has given my brand life online and in printed materials. After understanding my business, Melissa assisted in suggesting logos that might work best and we landed on The Lauren Logo. Melissa was understanding, patient and presented creative ideas throughout the logo and brand board design process.

Melissa was incredible to work with on That’s the Idea’s rebranding. She provided a variety of logo and colour scheme options making the selection process both fun and efficient. Melissa’s attention to detail and out-of-the-box thinking resulted in a clean and accessible design for my website. With Melissa’s expertise, my brand translated better to customers and visitors to my website. I would recommend Melissa to entrepreneurs and businesses at all stages who are looking to brand from scratch or rebrand their businesses and who are open to modern, minimal and crisp designs.
