Color Inspiration | Cocoa + Cookies

Before we start on any project big or small, we dive into planning each of the 7 (yes seven!) design elements. Color is one of the design elements that sets the stage for projects. Every color has its own story and mood on its own. Combining multiple colors together we are able to visually tell a more complex story and begin to bring projects to life!

Project Using These Colors

Occasions by Shakira pulled together this amazing event for a fun holiday celebration! We created a custom invite to set the stage for the upcoming fun, festive, and warm event!  As a bonus, we created the “cup of cheer” signage that will make the perfect decor not just for the holidays, but a year-round coffee bar staple!

Hi, I’m Tara, the Brand Strategist +
Designer of Olive Fox Design!

I use strategy-based design to help you and your customers fall in love with your business. My formula isn’t rocket science but my extensive background in accounting does infuse a bit of nerdery, data-obsession, and color-coded spreadsheets to deliver a unique brand identity and strategy. And a little extra fluff from my kitty Willow doesn’t hurt either ;) 

How can I help you? Drop me a note here and let’s chat!

How much do your services cost?

I know, the million-dollar question! Don’t worry, my services don’t actually cost a million bucks 😉  I don’t believe in cookie-cutter designs; therefore, I stay away from a one-size-fits-all pricing structure. I create a customized plan to meet your distinctive business goals and needs so each service cost does vary. But to help you know if Olive Fox Design is a good fit, I’ve created a Welcome Guide! This will give you all the details about my process, packages + pricing.

By providing your email, you’ll also start to receive my branding + business brief emails with the latest resources so you can confidently build your business!
