Thinking about developing or evolving your brand? Check out our guide to a successful branding process.
#1: Hire a Professional
It can be very tempting to look for a DIY or low-cost solution to branding, especially if you are a small business or nonprofit. Trust us when we say this: It’s worth the investment. A professional designer will provide you with logo variations for different occasions, font treatments, a color palette, and a Style Guide. These elements are essential to developing a cohesive and recognizable brand that will stand the test of time.

As concepts developed, Paz (meaning ‘peace’) became a much better fit for this practice.
Since emanating peaceful vibes is what this practice aims to share with both animal and human clientele, we adopted St. Francis as our patron Saint and symbol and coined ‘Peace to All’ as our new tagline.
Look for the new Paz signs on Cesar Chavez and South 1st in Austin, and take a moment to check out the incredible interiors as well. There is a beautiful painting by Mississippi artist Ginger Williams-Cook in the new S. 1st lobby, and there are are fine art prints throughout the building.
Erika Wennerstrom came by the studio in November and selected a piece of art as an inspiration for her solo tour poster. The tour, Sweet Unknown, begins in December 2016 and will continue through early 2018.
The piece this poster was derived from can be viewed in Sarah Presson’s fine art portfolio, sarahpresson.com. It was part of a diptych titled ‘The Desert in Bloom’.
