Nichole was full of life, personality and charisma and she wanted branding that would help portray that to potential customers. Local Collaborative revived the copy, marketing approach, delegated a target audience and receiving referrals and reviews from past clients.
Here are some mock-ups from our logo ideas. We played with her favorite color, turquoise, glitter, traditional house shapes and non-traditional realtor logos.:
Her goal in the future is to start up another creative edge to her business so we focused branding around her name, purchased and adapted a URL and always had growth on the mind. I always like to create a mood board for clients on ideas for content, cover imagery, and an overall feel for their brand’s archetype.
I had a great time working with Nichole and her high energy. If you’re looking for a realtor in the Kansas City area,
This Branding + Positioning project was just as adorable and fun as the name sounds.
This mini farm and start-up floral business in Petal, MS (Again…how perfect) is starting out with a tough sell as the new guy in a good ol’ boy town. They’re biggest challenges when they approached Local Collaborative were needing a logo, branding package and creative ideas on how to approach their new market to bring in business.
We wanted to bring a feminine, floral and dainty logo that we could use on all digital and printed marketing materials. Here were a few mock-ups and logo options.
We developed fun copy for her bio and projects, outlined a marketing approach including seasonal product ideas and focused on their tagline
“Homegrown In Petal. Handcrafted With Happiness.”
Even if the locals were difficult to hop on board we focused on bringing in nearby college students and young females as the target audience. This was a brand full of personality and exuding a fun experience. We had a great time supporting another female and military-spouse owned company and are excited to see what they do!

During my undergrad I had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients through Kansas State University creating campaigns, copy, designs, social media approaches and much more.
One of these courses included a summer internship with the highly awarded and recognized Bailey Lauerman Advertising Agency. My internship team and mentors allowed me to work with high-profile clients including Cuties, Mighties, Panda Express and meeting Alex Borstein as a representative for our non-profit event at the College World Series.
While these were not clients through Local Collaborative (in fact several years before we even existed) it still fueled my passion for creatively marketing businesses and gave me the strategic background to assist my clients.
Sedgwick County 4-H is the second-most populated county in Kansas however they were struggling with youth enrolling in their program and balancing a demanding workload.
Local Collaborative worked with their extension agent to create graphics, marketing approaches and provide a variety of services including video edits and photography for outstanding projects. One of our main focuses was on their school enrichment programs as well as fundraising auctions and the county fair. We continually create graphics for their website, social media, printed materials and marketing approaches for different events and programs.
One of the larger projects we collaborated on was overhauling their curriculum guide and program booklet. Here are some examples of the Before and After.
If you’re not already familiar with Local Collaborative’s passion for giving back to 4-H, please reach out here. We drop our rates for clubs, extension offices and more!

While working at REFERCO, I was tasked with promotional strategy, public relations and indirect sales for The Miracle Morning for Real Estate Agents (MMREA).
