Ready to feel organized?

Brand Specs is a mini course + template (built in Airtable) to organize all the things that make up your brand. I'm talking the values, words, templates, copy bank, etc. more than the visuals.

A's for your Q's

  • Q: Is this a course or a template?
    A: Good question! It's a mini course that includes a template. This way, I can show you how to set it up & put it to use. 

  • Q: What kinds of things are included in the template?
    A: Here's a list of the sections in the template: Brand Cues (what words describe your brand?), People Cues (what words describe your people?), Your Client's Words, Word Bank, Story Bank, This/Never That, CTA's, Web Page Planner, Email Templates, Color Cues, Type Cues, Moodboard (for documenting your photography style), and File Links. Whew! That's a lot. But don't worry, you can build each section up one at a time.
  • Q: Is this for me?
    A: Brand Specs is for you if you have a business. It's equally helpful for those just starting out & those who've been at it for years. It's also useful for the solopreneur or the biz owner who's stepping into that CEO role. 

  • Does it include graphics (logo template, icons, etc.) to use for my brand?
    Nope. Brand Specs doesn't include any graphics. It does give you a space to organize the things that make up your brand personality. Remember, a brand is more than just a logo or graphics. 

  • Q: What is Airtable?
    A: I'm glad you asked! I built Brand Specs in Airtable because it's the best tool for the job. It's powerful, expandable, easy to learn the basics, & easy on the eyes. (Google Sheets, I'm lookin' at you 🤨) It also has a mobile app if you're on the go.

  • Q: But I prefer Trello, Asana, Google Sheets, etc...
    A: I get it; new systems are hard. I'd encourage you to give Airtable a chance. The video walkthrough should get you up & running quickly. But! I've got you covered with an intro to copying it over to your fav platform.

  • Q: How long do I have access to the template & mini-course?
    A: Forever. As long as I'm around, it's yours!

  • Q: Can I get a refund if I don't like it?
    A: I would definitely be 😟😟😟 if you didn't like it! But because it's a digital product, I don't offer refunds. If you're struggling, reach out to me & we'll get it sorted. Cause I want you to be 😃😃😃!

  • I have a different question.
    Awesome, there should be a chat bubble in the bottom, right corner of your screen. Hit me up! If you don't see it, you can email me at hello@katieschwarzdesign.com.
