We start on Wednesday, April 20th
Elevate your business
into a brand
designed for small businesses that would like a more cohesive and consistent brand that builds trust & loyalty with their customers
the three key steps; Brand Awareness, Brand Definition and Brand Visual Strategy, will help you to be more aware of how to use your brand to its full potential and have more confidence in selling/promoting who you really are a brand
The idea is that you take a step back to really look at your brand as a whole so you can communicate more effectively and resonate better with your ideal customers.
Sound like the kind of know-how support, and step by-step process you need to elevate your brand?
This is the first time I’m offering MAKER Elevate which means it’s a great opportunity for you
For starters, this round will be much more like a group programme than an online course.
Because I want to make sure it that this course gives you everything you need (and nothing you don’t), your feedback is key to shape the course around your needs. You also get more online face-to-face time with me as I teach all of the core content live on Zoom and hosting live Q&As. Because of that, you’ll have the opportunity to shape the content as we go.
Yep, the course price of €197.00 is an introductory offer and next time I launch Maker Elevate, the price will be increasing significantly.
Hey! I’m Kate
I am a multi-award winning graphic designer and Creative Director of MAKER, specialising in branding and graphic design.
After 6 years in business, I realised there were a lot of businesses out there not using their brand to its full potential. Enter Maker Elevate…
I wanted to be able to help more businesses to thrive by building strong brand foundations to create a more cohesive and consistent brand.
My passion is to help businesses and their brands to thrive, through the graphic design and brand strategy. I created Maker Elevate to help small businesses to take a step back and create a brand themselves that resonates with their ideal customers.
“Kate gets to the heart of how you can create your brand and be consistent, with a no nonsense step-by-step approach, she can demystified the process. If you are thinking about creating or switching up your brand”

When does the course start & end?
What makes MAKER Elevate different?
What makes MAKER Elevate different is where graphic design meets branding strategy. There are plenty of ‘templates’ and quick wins online, however MAKER Elevate is an investment in a long term strategy for small businesses and teaches valuable brand foundations that you can use again & again as the business grows.
What if I am not happy?
Is this course for designing a logo?
Unfortunately not, this course is about building your brand. Your brand is more than a logo and it runs much deeper. Visual strategy is part of the course but is about your colours, typeface/font presentation and not designing your logo. MAKER offers a high-end branding service to create your businesses brand identity if this was something you were interested in pursuing.
I’m a little busy in my business right now… should I wait until next time to join you?
Can this be for more established businesses as well as start ups?
How are the lessons delivered?
What happens after I enroll?
I have another question…
Great! You can email me at email@example.com and I will aim to get back to you within 24hrs.
While creating MAKER Elevate I ran a series of mini workshops to develop the course further, here is what my lovely students had to say
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to learn from someone so passionate and knowledgeable about design and branding. I’ve got so much out of this session. I now have pages of notes and ideas to implement for my own brand!”

“The workshop has given me all the tips and tools to work with my brand, analyse what I have done so far and think of all the improvements that could be implemented”

Ready to elevate your business
into a brand?
HEY! YOU’VE MADE IT THIS FAR
Are you all the way down here because you’re not quite sure whether Maker Elevate is the right fit for you?
First of all, Maker Elevate may NOT be the right fit for you if:
You are joining the course to create a logo. (See FAQ’s we will not be designing a logo on this course).
You are not willing to step back and take an honest view at your business.
I can’t think of any more reasons why you shouldn’t join this course.
On the other hand, Maker Elevate IS right for you if:
You are a passionate and ambitious business owner who wants your business to succeed.
Your marketing seems all a bit disconnected and inconsistent.
“Kate is very good communicator and has a very clear vision of the influence that branding has on your marketing needs. She makes the branding process less daunting and sets out clear and easy pathways
to achieving your goals”
“Very useful information delivered in an excellent manner. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is interested in improving and defining their branding. I am thankful for having the opportunity to attend”
