We need a bit of help!


Hi! We've got two logos and a really naff slide deck. We are starting to grow up a bit (over 4000 followers worldwide) and are presenting regularly at conferences. We also run our own study groups. We need: - a slide deck template - brand colours - a roller banner design - a "scenario" design (basically a document - will explain) We want to incorporate our existing logos, but we have no brand colours. I'm also wondering if there's the opportunity to design a font. We're good at ideas. Just need the expertise behind them! We've been getting by using our Canva subscription and that's been really fun to date, but not something we have expertise in. We would love to work with someone who can take a look at our values (diversity, inclusivity, technical prowess, hard work, determination and friendship) and existing brand (sunflowers, books, women, mountains, hard hats) and help us weave this into our materials and brand.
