Nela in a few words

Brand identity designer with 17 years of professional experience creating logos and brand identities for businesses, nonprofits, as well as governmental and educational institutions.

My design studio brings beauty, humanity, values-driven strategy, and resonant meaning into the brands of expert consultants and authentic leaders. In other words ➡ I can help you figure out what is unique and special about your work, guide you through the branding process, and create all the assets you need to clearly communicate this to your audience and clients.

What my clients have said about working with me:

👩🏻 “Better than anything I could have imagined!”
👨🏿‍🦱 “Nela provided a stunning logo.”
👩🏼‍🦰 “She understood the essence of our work.”
👨🏻‍🦲 “She’s been brilliant to work with.”
👱🏼‍♀️ “Collaboration with Nela was excellent, professional, and very enjoyable, based on mutual trust.”
👩🏻‍🦰 “I don’t know anyone else who manages the creative process so clearly.”
👦🏻 “We were pleasantly surprised by constant improvement of her services, and her personal and professional integrity.”
👱🏼‍♀️ “I was blown away that there is a way to combine beauty and efficiency. It never occurred to me that a creative person could be both.”
👩🏻 “We love our new brand! We are inspired to come to work every morning and work on fulfilling it's full potential.”

If branding is high on your priority list, I'd love to learn more about your business and see if we would make a good team.

Note: I'm typically booked around 2 months in advance, so I'm not able to accommodate urgent work. If you're the sort of business owner that plans ahead, we'd work wonderfully together.
