Danika first came to me wanting to do an overhaul of her existing branding - which at that time, was essentially just a logo. She was feeling embarrassed to direct visitors to her site and was generally feeling disconnected from her business.
During our initial chat, we also identify that she didn't want to necessarily be known as the "lash lady" anymore but rather be positioned as an authority in the skincare space.
Through our time together redefining her brand from the inside out, we found out that the big "WHY" behind her brand: To defy the status quo and change the way skin clinics operate - where estheticans act as experts rather than "order-takers".
The "dream" clients that she absolutely adores working with are those that are suffering mainly from acne, as it was also a condition she grew up experiencing - which really positioned her as being a practitioner that has been in her clients' shoes before. With that, we really wanted to highlight Vanity Skin Clinic as an education-first clinic. All treatment plans are backed by science and research -- and Danika make it a priority to educate her clients every step of the way so they never have to feel alone or confused when maintaining results.
Knowing all of this, we curated a brand that was modern and sophisticated. The “V” in her logo illustrates movement, grace, and growth, as VSC is not one to stay stagnant and providing cookie-cutter solutions to clients. To pair with that, a molecule structure that symbolized vitality, science, and transformation -- a true reflection of VSC's mission and ethos in her business.
"Confused, overwhelmed, defeated, like I was behind the 8-ball. I originally came into this just "wanting a new logo". Jess made me realize it's SO much more than that, and I am forever grateful for her knowledge and leadership."
"Im no longer embarrassed of my brand or confused by it. I feel like I can sit at the big-kids table and actually show up confidently! I have learned so much from working with you... I feel like I have such an advantage over other businesses just because I have a much better understanding of all the aspects of a good brand!"
