All About The Business

First, let's knock out the whole letter to brunch thing. Sitting at a cafe in London for brunch and writing a letter back home ending up addressing it Dear, Brunch is where it all began. I wish I could tell you that's our story, but it's not. It's actually way less fabulous but equally as loved.  In college as a design student I worked on a lot of "passion projects" at the request of my professors. This always had me thinking of dream clients and brand design. That's where the name Dear Brunch came to life. It wasn't until a few years later it was considered seriously for this branding studio. I debated for weeks on this name and at the last minute went for it. Like I said, way less fabulous, but it's our story, and one that I will forever love because now I get to invite you and other amazing business owners to brunch with me every week!

Today Dear Brunch is a thriving design studio run by me, a passionate designer who loves coffee, family, and homemade ranch! On top of that I love my job and having the opportunity to work with dream clients from all over. My goal while working together is to serve you well with an experience as pleasant as brunch. I truly believe design should be fun, creative, and functional. That's why we take on the design process for you freeing you up to focus on what you love to do in your business. We implement design psychology in your brand and work 1x1 to take the stress and overwhelm of knowing it all off your back. Our goal is that you leave better than when we first met with a beautiful brand along with peace of mind!

FOUNDER, DESIGNER & BRUNCH BESTIE

First, welcome to Dear Brunch, I'm the passionate designer mentioned above. I love design, colors, and will always be a little too over excited to talk with you on a Monday morning. I hold a Bachelor's degree in graphic design with a minor focus in marketing and public relations. A native of North Carolina living in Norfolk, Virginia with my amazing husband and our newest member of the family, an apricot Schnoodle named Lou! I love all food and will most likely be dipping it in ranch...yes, I'm serious. My everyday must have is coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Currently  working on the "drink more water" thing!
