Branding is so much more than pretty logos and fonts. But what does branding really mean?
Polly Arnold from Wild Sand Studios, is a 23 year old brand designer and educator from the UK. She started her business two years ago where she packed up her bags and flew to New Zealand with a dream of working remotely and living life on her own terms. Fast forward two years later and she now runs a successful, online creative business with a small team that helps purpose-driven businesses develop brands that are timeless, versatile and effortlessly cool.
I interviewed Polly all about brand strategy and what branding really means. HINT: It’s more than just a pretty logo, colors and fonts.
