Logo & visual identity

In 2014, Karen confidently took the entrepreneurial leap to focus on her vision full-time. She needed a business name and brand identity to formalize her consulting work and level up her personal brand. She already has a strong network, reputation, and involvement. A consistent brand groundwork to set her up for success.

After a few bombilla brandstorms, we landed on Racy Conversations, a company name that captures Karen’s authentic, bold approach to addressing racial equity head-on and hands-on. Logos, brand colors, photoshoots, and marketing materials followed as Karen continued to grow her business.
