Why The Brandstorming Agency came to be

I was inspired to create The Brandstorming Agency after Taimy and Joan, two brilliant dancers and friends of mine, asked me for help.

When I first met Taimy and Joan, I was totally blown away by their talent, work ethic, and creative genius. After immigrating to the US from Cuba just a year prior, they were working insanely hard to build something for themselves here in Phoenix. The pair approached me and asked if I could help them set up an online presence. They realized it was something they needed to succeed in the US, but had no idea where to start. I wound up building them a website and setting them up on social media with a cohesive brand. Taimy and Joan now market themselves as Sentidos Dance and have since moved to New York City!

I only did this small amount of work for Taimy and Joan, but the experience left a huge impact on me. It really affected me to see such a clear example of a pattern that I've since observed on countless occasions: artists, creatives, and thinkers with potentially world-changing ideas and massive amounts of talent are held back from their true potential for impact because they often don't have the right resources to develop a strategy that will allow them to be seen, heard, and PAID! Frankly, I think it's B.S. that people who know how to gain influence using highly effective branding, business strategy, social media and digital strategy are out there impacting the world (potentially for the worse) while there's a huge community of artists and creative thinkers like Taimy & Joan sitting in relative obscurity right under our noses.

I was pretty pissed about this, so I created The Brandstorming Agency - and now I'm pursuing strategic branding and design work full-time. My end goal is to help creative makers, thinkers, and performers like you be seen and be sustainable so they can continue to create, make the biggest impact possible, and be empowered to change their world and THE world.

How we work

Process

Step 1. Free consultation

Every project begins with a free consultation. We sit down together for at least an hour and chat about your goals, budget, and thoughts on initial project direction.

01

Step 2. Brandstorming time!

Depending on the project, we will work together during one or more initial Brandstorming sessions. At this stage, we work collaboratively with you and your team to develop your personalized brand plan.

02

Step 3. Stylescaping

Using insights from previous Brandstorming sessions, we will create a visual direction for the brand or project with a stylescape. Once approved, this direction guides all further design choices.

03

Step 4. Design & development

This is the part where ideas become reality! Dependent on project scope and budget, we'll have 1-3 rounds of design revisions and testing for any design deliverables that are necessary for the project. This is usually the longest stage of the process.

04

Step 5. Launch

After the final design review and approval, it's time to launch your new website and/or other brand solutions. Pop the champagne! 🍾

05

Step 6. Support

We include a post-launch coaching session for most clients, where we will walk you through how to manage your new website and/or other solutions we implemented. If you don't want to do the work yourself, there are also ongoing product management solutions we can discuss at this stage.

Perfect template for creative studios and marketing agencies

A successful marketing plan relies heavily on the pulling-power of advertising copy. Writing result-oriented ad copy is difficult, as it must appeal to, entice, and convince consumers to take action. There is no magic formula to write perfect ad copy; it is based on a number of factors, including ad placement, demographic, even the consumer’s mood when they see your ad.
