You have a logo and some colours you like—but calling it a brand identity would be a stretch
You feel overwhelmed every time you have to assemble anything remotely creative
Your content creation and marketing are all over the place
Your brand seems to attract all of the wrong people
You’re tempted by every new trend out there and suffer from serious brand envy
You’d love to rebrand but are nervous about hiring a designer
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been bootstrapping your business since day one. And look how far you’ve come!
But if there’s one area of your business that’s begging for an upgrade, it’s your brand.
Maybe you can relate to this...
You know your business deserves better—but you don’t know how or where to start.
This is your chance to find out!
The Pilot Brand offers you a strategy-led creative direction that reimagines what’s possible for your brand identity. It’s your chance to work with a brand strategist and designer, without the financial commitment or contract.
Each quarter, two solopreneurs will get to test pilot the branding experience completely free.
I’ll guide you towards the horizon of possibility as you gain the clarity that’s only achieved in flight.
We’ve all seen what a truly authentic brand can do for a business.
Imagine what it would feel like to have a brand that people get excited about.
Beyond that—imagine having a brand that YOU get excited about.
That’s what the Pilot Brand is all about.
This is your chance to:
See your brand through a new lens of possibility
Feel inspired and connected to your brand based on a strategic creative direction
To test drive a rebrand without the financial commitment or contract
The Pilot Brand program serves to inspire possibility while giving you a glimpse of what it’s like to work with a designer. I’ll take you through the same branding framework used with my studio clients and present you with a creative direction that reimagines what’s possible for your brand identity.
Hey! I'm Jenny
I’m a brand strategist and designer who works with service-based solopreneurs who are struggling with brand awareness. I use the branding journey to not just design memorable brands, but to empower you to think like a brand for a more magnetic, connected, and sustainable brand experience.
The goal of the program is to give you the opportunity to:
test pilot a rebrand for your business
learn how creative choices can be used strategically to appeal to your ideal clients
get a feel for the branding journey without spending a dollar
empower you to think about your business through the lens of your brand
equip you with the resources you need to give your business the brand it deserves
apply for the program
your flight gate
reach brand new heights
Only 8 solopreneurs get accepted for the program per year.
Here’s what Pilot Brand program recipients receive:
30 minute Strategy Call with Jenny
We’ll work to unlock the best avenues for your potential rebrand. On our call, I’ll ask strategic questions based on your discovery questionnaire to increase clarity and ensure the creative direction aligns with your goals and offers solutions to your current challenges.
X-page Creative Direction
Your creative direction will include a brand mood board, typography direction, colours, imagery and other visual elements to convey the feeling and aesthetic I feel is best for your brand. Each creative choice is backed by strategic insights for extreme brand clarity and connection.
Brand Implementation Plan
Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging. I’ll equip you with an action plan that outlines specific resources, checklists, and discounts to ensure you have what you need to implement your creative direction.
You don’t need a clear vision for your brand.
My discovery framework and strategic insights are how we translate your business into a memorable brand identity. One that feels like you and serves as a beacon for your future clients.

1. When can I apply?
Applications are accepted during the first two weeks of each quarter: January, April, June, and October. If the doors for applications aren’t open, I recommend getting on the Standby List to be notified when doors open again.
2. I don’t have an existing brand, can I still apply?
The studio is looking for applicants that have been in business for at least one year and have an existing visual identity.
3. I’m not a solopreneur, am I still allowed to apply?
You can apply, but the Pilot Brand program is looking to help solopreneurs and companies-of-one take their brand to new heights.
4. What criteria are you looking for in applicants?
The ideal applicant is a solopreneur who’s been running their business for at least one year. They are actively invested in their business and have an existing brand identity in use, even if it’s relatively basic.
5. Do I receive a free brand identity from the Pilot Brand program?
No. Those selected will receive a strategy-led creative direction that outlines recommended fonts, colours, and design aesthetic that I feel is best for their unique business. They will also receive a brand implementation plan filled with resources to DIY their brand in addition to significant studio discounts should they want to move forward with the proposed creative direction.
6. Can I reapply if I don’t get selected?
Absolutely! All applicants will be notified when selections are made. If you don’t get accepted, you’ll be automatically put on the Standby List and be reminded when applications open again.

Applications are accepted during the first two weeks of the respective quarter. All applicants will be notified via email by the end of the third week.
