We create premium brands for knowledge based businesses
Our clients' main products are their services, ideas, and advice. We are an award winning design & brand identity agency based in Toronto, that help consulting & advisory businesses create premium brands so that they can stand out and be rewarded for their expertise.
We help our clients during defining moments.
Our Toronto branding agency’s strength has always been in working directly with the founders & CEOs of professional service firms, in helping them during defining moments.
A moment that will impact your company's reputation for years to come. Perhaps you feel your current branding has gotten too stale and is no longer resonating with your target audience. It's time to give your brand a facelift, inject some new energy and bring a faltering brand back into the limelight. Or perhaps your organization is going through a directional change, and trying to target a new market segment with a new offering. Many see these moments as hurdles. We see them as opportunities to build and strengthen your brand, and deliver long-term value to your business.
First, our branding consulting firm will help you identify what makes your business extraordinary. What positioning do you currently own in the marketplace that makes you superior to your competitors? Who are your customers / clients, and why should they care to do business with you?
Our brand identity agency will then craft a premium brand for your business, that will appeal to your ideal clients. Yes, that means we will work with you on your:
brand identity design
social media content design
Selected Branding & Design work

This is a 2 hour deep-dive interview where we will get to know everything about your business - where you are, where you've been, and where you want to go. We will ask you a series of questions where we will get to know all about your customers, your competitors, your industry niche, and your long term goals for your business.

Here's our process ...
Our branding firm will take a week to go through all the material that we've gathered in Step 1. We will do our own research, and validate our findings. We will then get back to you with a brand strategy to attain your business goals. This direction will include a unique brand positioning for your business, 3 look and feel mood-board options, and voice & tone that your business needs to communicate to appeal to your ideal audience. We will also put together an initial UX wireframe for your website landing page.
Once you pick a mood board direction, we will create 3 logo design options that appeal to your ideal audience. On finalizing the logo, we will put together a brand guide, that shows the logo variations, primary & secondary typeface, color palette, and how the brand manifests as a website header. All digital assets will then be delivered as open source Ai files.
COST FOR THE ABOVE 3 STEPS:
Please Note: This is our branding firm’s minimum cost of engagement. If you are looking for additional deliverables, below are 3 design packages we offer, and this cost will be deducted from the below amounts.
If you like our thinking, then you can hire us to execute it into a fully manifested design. We have 3 tiers of design packages you can choose from:
For Startups & Solopreneurs
FOR CLIENTS WHO NEED THE FUNDAMENTALS.
This includes your brand identity design (logo, color palette, fonts, graphics, imagery, brand style-sheet), a simple website (designed & developed), and how your social media content should look like.
For Professional Service Firms
FOR CLIENTS WITH AGGRESSIVE BUSINESS OBJECTIVES.
This is our most popular branding package, because it fulfills the need of most professional service firms.
These are for clients with a larger or more creative website needs, additional collateral and/or higher level strategy needs.
FOR CLIENTS WHO WANT TO PLAY IN THE BIG LEAGUES
This is the ultra-deluxe package, which is a level jump like no other. A complete rebrand with strategy and execution with bells and lots of whistles.
May include a high-end photo shoot, manifesto brand video, a much larger website, and/or a marketing campaign that will set you up for success moving forward. This is only for those looking to play in the Big Leagues, completely conceptualized and creative directed and implemented by our team.
Our clients have nothing but good things to say about our services ...
New York Times bestselling author, Hall of Fame Speaker, CEO & Founder of How to Fascinate.
"First, I’ll share a confession… After a decade as an advertising creative director leading some of the world’s coolest brands, I’m hard to impress. I've worked with numerous designers & branding experts in the past who failed to deliver what they promised. Yet working with Denny and the Rayvn team has been an absolute delight. Denny is an attentive listener, fiercely responsive, and savvy with fickle digital marketing trends. Our teams worked closely to transform ideas into a gorgeous portfolio of images and digital content, for social media and presentations. We're thrilled with the results!”
“I previously tried to work with local design agencies, but found their processes to be immature. There was also a lack of follow-through on their deliverables. Denny & the Rayvn team were systematic and thoughtful, and exceeded my expectations when it came to delivery. They listened, took my feedback, did their research and help me create something special. They added their own creative spin on ideas & concepts that I had built, and improved every part of my brand. It has been a wonderful experience in creativity & professionalism".
"I didn't know what my business's unique positioning was, till after I met with Denny & the Rayvn team. They really helped me hyper-target who I was going after. Once we were done with the Discovery & Strategy Package, it gave me complete clarity & confidence to go ahead with the design & implementation phase of the project. They were extremely professional, and created a brand for my business that fit me, my company culture, and my vision like a glove. I highly recommend them for any consulting firm who is starting out, or looking to scale up their business and play in the big leagues."
"Denny & his Rayvns have a way of understanding and evolving the vision you have in mind and show you something that completely exceeds your expectations. We got 20x return from the clarity we gained from our new brand positioning. They have made us feel as good as we want to
look! What started out as a logo design project turned into a full
branding exercise simply because it was easy to trust their collective
strategy and direction. Our new brand is bold & timeless, and will
serve us well in years to come. I highly recommend them”
We are a small team of designers, developers, and social media mavens. We pride ourselves on being able to distil complex problems into simple & logical solutions. Solutions that separate our clients from their competition. Solutions that engage and inspire the customer. Solutions that cannot be ignored.
