The Brands we've Built

We create brands and we tell stories that are as unique and powerful as you are. Whenever a potential customer encounters you, they should feel like they are talking directly to you. Your brand is an extension of who you are and what you want to be known for. We create brands that look and sound like you and speak directly to the people or companies you want to work with.

Our Contributions

Visual Identity, Brand Positioning, Website Design, Email Marketing, Social Media Branding, Branded Email Marketing, Packaging, and Signage

Courtney, owner of Houston’s most sought after cosmetic tattoo artistry studio, Her Velvet Hand, brings meticulous detail to the world of brow & lip tattooing. Courtney is meticulous about tailoring her work to appear natural for each of her clients and using luxury practices to maintain the integrity of the skin.

The result of her careful craftsmanship is naturally appearing, face-framing brows and lips that highlight her clients’ facial characteristics. Referred by one of her closest friends, she immediately knew DesignGood was the agency with whom she needed to partner to help her bring her vision of full, natural beauty to life.

Kate Eckman
Our Contributions

Brand Positioning, Visual Identity, Website Design, Sales & Outreach Tools, Branded Email Marketing, Social Media Branding

Kate Eckman is a powerhouse in the field of personal development. As a leadership development and performance coach, mindfulness expert, television personality, professional model and writer (Whew!), Kate’s multifaceted background gives her uncommon insight into the challenges faced by high achievers. With the upcoming release of her first book, The Full Spirit Workout: A Ten-Step System to Shed Your Self-Doubt, Strengthen Your Spiritual Core, and Create a Fun and Fulfilling Life, Kate came to DesignGood ready for a brand refresh that could capture her essence, expand her marketing reach and help her connect with new audiences.

As the online home for her personal brand, Kate needed her website to build her clientele for coaching and motivational speaking, and as a point of sale for her book and courses. But just as importantly, it needed to reinforce her credibility as a subject-matter expert and introduce Kate to readers and media outlets interested in booking her for interviews and guest appearances. We helped Kate clarify her brand language and developed a visual identity system that conveyed her mission, services and unique mind-body-spirit approach to coaching. To drive engagement and promote book sales, we created a pre-release landing page for Kate’s book, with an option for readers to pre-order. Over on her website, a lead magnet provided site visitors with a free chapter download and the chance to experience Kate’s powerful work firsthand, while building her email list. To close the circle of good, we followed up with branded email marketing so Kate could stay on-brand while continuing to inspire clients, readers and fans alike – including the team here at DesignGood.

Eric Winterling
Our Contributions

Brand Positioning, Visual Identity, Website Design, Branded Email Marketing, Photography Art Direction

As one of New York’s premiere custom costume studios, Eric Winterling came to DesignGood ready to update their look. In three decades of creating costumes, Eric’s business had grown into one of the largest and most well-regarded studios in Manhattan. But along with the sartorial trends of days past, he’d left his branding and website far behind.

Eric heads up a team of master drapers, dressmakers and stitchers who construct each costume by hand. And while their completed costumes are seriously impressive, we took a fresh approach to showing off their work, telling the story of their craft through a highly customized portfolio experience that includes design sketches, detail shots, works-in-progress, performance photos and video. The customized portfolio treatment, along with a separate showcase of details, demonstrates how the studio’s unwavering attention to detail and quality plays well to camera and stage alike. Like his studio, which grew from 400 square feet in its earliest days to more than 8,000 square feet today, we updated and expanded Eric’s brand through a new visual identity, website design and copy to tell his story in bigger, brighter, more colorful fashion.

Ample + Rooted
Our Contributions

Naming, Brand Positioning, Visual Identity, Website Design, Sales & Outreach Tools, Social Media Feed Design, Branded Email Marketing

Neathery Falchuk came to DesignGood with a vision: To create a brand that would reflect the warmth and inclusivity of her therapy practice while feeling big enough for future expansion beyond a single office. With a growing team of therapists, Neathery knew it was time to make the shift from a personal brand to one that would provide space for every team member to define their own niche within the business.

We began our work with developing the name and the clarifying language that would serve as the foundation of the new brand. “Ample & Rooted” grew out of Neathery’s belief that each of us is whole and beautiful and that therapy provides a way to become grounded and connected to ourselves and one another. The logo and overall visual identity sprouted from the name and serve as a symbol of the healing and growth clients experience through counseling. The visual identity was extended throughout the new website, with a calming, grounded color palette and imagery that reflects the tone of the brand. Website copy was mindfully developed to acknowledge the diverse audience of the practice and convey a sense of affirmation and belonging. The expanded site gives space for each therapist to showcase their individual approaches and areas of expertise, as well as the company’s growing meditation and yoga offerings. For clients and therapists alike, Ample & Rooted serves as “A Home for the Whole You.”

AmRisc Group
Our Contributions

Visual Identity, Branding System, Brand Guidelines, Positioning, Copywriting, Presentation Design, Internal Communications Design, Website Design and Development, Photoshoot Art Direction and Styling

Nimble by Design. As experts in the field of insurance underwriting, the folks at AmRisc have a well-earned reputation for developing new products in response to the changing needs of the marketplace. Yet while they were busy advancing proprietary modeling techniques to track risk and manage portfolios, they spent a little less time thinking about their brand image. Over the years, the company grew to include multiple sub-brands, and it became clear they needed to find a new way to communicate the unique value proposition of each one – and the role of the parent company.

When they came to DesignGood, AmRisc was also experiencing some brand confusion: The parent company and one of its sub-brands shared the same name. We led AmRisc through a process of clarifying the messaging behind each of their four brands and launched the process of renaming the wholesale arm of their company. We developed a suite of logos and a comprehensive identity system to unite each of the brands under AmRisc. Then we brought them all under one roof online, with a clean, modern website organized to clearly communicate the role and purpose of each entity. It's not always easy to rebrand an established company. Often, internal preferences and processes can make it difficult to make changes – and to make them last. That's why our work included a complete style guide to get everyone on board with using fresh taglines, logos, color palettes, graphic treatments and everything else that goes into maintaining a strong brand image. True to their mission, the folks at AmRisc stayed nimble by design and let innovation lead to great results.

What Our Clients Say

Even as a writer I'm finding it challenging to put into words how much I've enjoyed working with DesignGood. Thank you for your expertise, love, and kindness.

Kate Eckman

Author of The Full Spirit Workout

"Even as a writer I'm finding it challenging to put into words how much I've enjoyed working with DesignGood. Kristin and every member of her team not only embody top-notch talent, but are also a complete dream to work with. From start to finish, I felt so cared for, never felt like an annoyance even when I was being annoying, and absolutely love what they created for my brand. Being able to launch a website this stunning, this polished, this professional during the biggest month of my career (the launch of my first book) felt so gratifying. I couldn't wait to show it off! There simply aren't enough words to adequately sum up how thrilled I am with my new brand and website. Thank you for your expertise, love, and kindness."

They took a dated and neglected website with minimal branding and social media promotion and created an industry best! We wanted our designer clients to envision themselves in our studio with their projects - mission accomplished.

Michael Peck

Managing Director, Eric Winterling

"Kristin and her team have an authentic ability to quickly hone in on who you are and what you are trying to accomplish with your business. Working DesignGood has been a game-changer in terms of how we will showcase our projects to clients and sales prospects moving forward. They took a dated and neglected website with minimal branding and social media promotion and created an industry best! The team worked through a daunting process with us, sorting through 30+ years projects to decide which best represented the breadth and scope of what we do. Kristin and the team literally brought our studio to life by showing the beauty of our process. We wanted our designer clients to envision themselves in our studio with their projects - mission accomplished. Sometimes creative businesses are so busy creating that they never take a pause to access where they’ve been and where they want to go with their business. DesignGood helped us to do that. We look forward to working with them on many more projects with them in the future."

The girls at DesignGood have LITERALLY brought my vision to life and I could not be more thankful for the talent they have put into this project. From the get-go, the team at DesignGood has given me the most divine experience...

Courtney Maguire

Founder, Her Velvet Hand

"When I reached out to Kristin and the team at Design Good- I was in the FRESHEST area of planning my business. I was just barely starting my business plan and had just made my business name, Her Velvet Hand, official. I was referred to the team by one of my dearest friends- and after seeing her branding- I knew I was in exceptional hands. As a creative artist, it was paramount that I find a branding company that I could connect with in more ways than just business. From the get-go, the team at DesignGood has given me the most divine experience, not only with the creative artistry behind their designs, but their professional, patient, and supportive approach as I venture into this new journey. The work that has been put into my brand has exceeded my expectations and has been absolutely worth the investment.

Neathery Falchuk

Founder, Ample + Rooted

We couldn’t have achieved this without the creativity the DesignGood team!

Laura R. Beckmann

President & Chief Operating Officer, AmRisc Group

"Kristin and the DesignGood team are incredibly creative and really strived to fully understand our business and cater specifically to our needs. While insurance may not be the most exciting or glamourous line of business, they delivered results that were still modern, vibrant and innovative while still aligning with our business purpose. We have received so much positive feedback, not only the website, but the branding as well! We couldn’t have achieved this without the creativity the DesignGood team brought to the table!"

We’re Thrilled With The Results

Nicole Giordano

Founder, StartUp Fashion

"Our most recent project with them was not only a branding refresh, but also a complete update of our website to better showcase all that we have to offer. And we’re thrilled with the results. It’s strong, professional, and clearly shows our community all the ways in which we can help them. Most importantly, over the last two launch periods our sales page's membership conversion rate was an average of 11.4%! Based on my research, that’s the upper echelon. #hellyes"
