We seek out partners who share our fervor for social progress. Let's work together to develop a strong identity to share your message loud and clear.
aybe your brand and web design don't yet reflect your personality, your expertise, or your one-of-a-kind approach to your small business. Maybe your brand and web design aren't quite helping to move your small business forward in a meaningful way.
At Studio Humankind, we wholeheartedly believe your purposeful, one-of-a-kind online presence should help you experience a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and joy in your business. Your brand and web design should communicate with your ideal client clearly and openly, sell your products and services genuinely, and help boost your sales seamlessly.
Put simply, we equip creative social business owners — just like you — with a brand and web design to help your purpose-driven business flourish. And to create a meaningful and lasting legacy through transparency.

After our initial meeting, we’ll invite you to our client management system and send you instructions to get started on your brand strategy including time to outline your unique voice, ideal clients, and develop brand-inspired mood boards, which we will take into the design process.
After the discovery phase is completed, we’ll use your developed brand strategy as a reference to start working on your cohesive brand identity and full collateral development. We’ll present concepts via an in-depth presentation and revise with your specific development feedback.
As we are wrapping up, we take a few days to save all of the different file types you will need as well as create a detailed brand standards guide.

What do I need to provide to begin working with you?
We have a strong design process in place, walking you through each phase of the project, from the minute you're onboarded to the time you're customizing your brand. We'll start with a comprehensive and collaborative brand strategy session with you and/or your team to get valuable insight towards your mission, audience, and goals moving forward. So all you need to get started is a willingness to listen, get inspired, and help CREATE!
What if I only need a logo design?
When businesses ask us this, we always follow up with this question – how big of an impact do you want to make on your audience? If standing out from the crowd and creating a memorable experience is your goal, then you’re going to need more than a logo. Our goal is to create a well-rounded brand that gives you all the tools and flexibility to have a cohesive identity without being repetitive. If you're looking for a smaller design package, check out our semi-custom brand templates!
How many rounds of refinements are included?
We include up to two revisions for each phase of the project. We emphasize brand strategy and creative direction from the beginning to create a strong foundation for your brand development. This helps ensure the first designs delivered match the needs for your audience, vision, and style.
What website platform(s) do you develop on?
We have extensive design and development experience in Showit and Shopify. After strategy planning, we will determine which platform is most sustainable for your business. Typically, social enterprises operate using Shopify, while nonprofits and social entrepreneurs will choose Showit. Each of the above platforms bring their own value and benefits to your work and will streamline your communication process.
Do you offer payment plans?
Absolutely! Working with a designer is a big investment, so we try to make payments as simple as possible for our clients. First, you'll pay an initial deposit to reserve your spot in our schedule. From there, we'll break it up into monthly payments.
How soon can we start?
Our availability varies throughout the year, but we typically book projects 1-2 months in advance. To get an idea of our current availability, fill out our client application form.
Will it be easy for me to update my website?
Yes, of course. Our mission is to provide you with high-quality designs that you can learn and implement into every aspect of your brand. Included in every package is a personalized training session for how to use your new website and how to make customizations to every page once it is live. Video recordings will be saved and sent to your team to use as a reference.
do you have any smaller offerings?
Yes! I offer strategy workshops, custom workbooks, and premium design resources. If you love the work I do but aren't quite ready to invest in my larger packages, you can take a look at my semi-custom brands and Showit website templates for social entrepreneurs on my online shop and/or email us directly with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
