branding portfolio

Your brand identity design forms the essential foundations for you to create a full brand experience for your customers. Your digital assets (website design, photography, social media pages etc) are often the very first experience your potential customers have with you, so they need to look amazing!

Without having a strong brand identity design for your business, this is where you can get confusion and find it hard to create a consistent look and feel through each touchpoint of your customer journey.

I work with bespoke cake designers, foodpreneurs and luxury artisan entrepreneurs to uplevel their businesses with a unique and recognisable brand.

Here are some of the designs I've worked on with my clients and what they had to say about working with me.

Brand Identity Design

Averil wanted something modern and luxurious to reflect her beautiful bespoke cake designs. Specialising in beautifully handmade sugar flowers with a particular love for orchids I wanted to make sure these were also included in the brand identity. The colour palette included a deep aubergine, navy and soft neutral with silver foil accents. The flowers were all hand illustrated by me to give Averil a completely unique and elegant brand identity design.

It was the best investment I've made and one of the best experiences I've had. I have the most gorgeous brand from the logo to the font and colour scheme. I love everything about it. I am more confident in my brand and my business.
the whole process was clear and easy and Jacquie immediately put me at ease. By the time we got to the design phase I felt that Jacquie really understood my business and what I wanted to achieve for it.
I am no longer unsure of presenting my business to people as the brand reflects what I want.

Brand Identity & stationery Design

When I had an in person consultation with Jaina to discuss her new baking business it was so clear Jaina was all about the details and her beautiful cakes and sweet treats really stood out from others in the industry. Jaina wanted something a bit different with a luxurious feel with gold details and colour pops since many of her creations were brightly coloured (and reflect Jaina's bubbly personality!)
The brand identity design was modern with the fuchsia pink, canary yellow and golds which became the signature colours for Cocoa & Silk!
For the business cards I designed these to be kept minimal in design but with the gold hot foil printing of the logo onto the bright pink, yellow and a grey colour option it really encapsulated Jaina's brand personality perfectly! The notecards were printed with the same hot foil print finish with a quote onto white and grey cards to balance with the rest of the brand identity design. An absolute dream project to work on!

I have been privileged enough to work with Jacquie to create a brand identity and logos for my baking business. The entire process was a dream from start to finish, and it was so easy to freely speak with Jacquie and get her advice on all of the little details as well as the larger decisions. She understood my vision and style from a mere 10 minute conversation and the first proof I received so perfectly encapsulated me and the brief that only a few minor edits were required, It was magical! Jacquie genuinely made the whole process so much easier with her lovely and friendly nature and I truly look forward to working with her again soon. Thank you so much!

Brand Identity design & personal brand shoot

Claire had an established business as a South African street food and event catering business but she really wanted to create a stronger brand that would reflect a more premium look and feel whilst still having a relaxed and fun vibe.
The old branding was the typical bright African colours but lacked the full brand identity design that was needed. So we went for a more muted colour palette with tribal patterns and pops of colour with the green and yellow to keep the fun and lively elements to the branding,
As well as the brand identity design I worked with Claire for her personal brand photoshoot where we used these colours and textures to create a gallery of images that really took Bokkie Foods to the next level!

Amazing from the outset! Now i have a professional brand identity and images that all fit together to take my business to the next level. From the brand identity session, to working with me to create my new brand, to the photography session. I felt that Jacquie really listened to where I was looking to take my business, at times asked questions to draw information out of me that I hadn't really thought about and delivered an amazing experience, brand identity and photography.

Brand Identity Design

Specialising in modern, elegant and beautifully detailed cakes, Sue's branding needed to have a big impact and really create that luxury brand feel to reflect her stunning cakes. The colours needed to be striking and elegant but not the typical wedding colours so we used a more muted colour palette with taupe and a muted pink.grey with the deeper navy which was teamed with the gold foil to create that beautiful luxurious feel. The geometric detail reflected the modern cake designs Sue loves to work on and this GORGEOUS font was an absolute winner with the modern and elegant, yet slightly alternative style.

Amazing! Amazingly talented lady. With my new branding came a whole new amount of confidence.
I am very hard to please... I am the first to admit I am not the easiest person to work with, but Jacquie was absolutely amazing.
I was totally spellbound by the whole experience. my Instagram grid has totally transformed! Totally worth every penny.

Brand Identity Design

Giulia really wanted to create a more luxurious brand for her business to reflect her style of whimsical, modern and textured cakes. The branding needed to work for her wedding cakes as well as for her celebration cakes, dessert tables and sugar flowers but texture was a key element that needed to be featured in the branding.
Using a deep emerald green teamed with copper and the palest of mint shades the colour palette really reflected the style of cakes Giulia wanted to produce more of. The brand identity design featured circular shapes and textured copper floral illustrations to reflect Giulia's love for floral finishes on her creations!

Jacquie is so helpful, kind, professional and respectful. The quality of her work is excellent, and her branding advice is priceless.
I have learnt so much about creating a great brand experience and really honing in on what I want my brand to represent.
