idApostle is an Ottawa-based graphic design studio specializing in branding. Services include brand strategy, brand naming, brand positioning, and brand engagement. I partner with people who are—or want to become—passionate about what their company is doing. I am always keen to meet startups, or established companies looking to better define why they matter through branding. My clients are varied but all share a belief that design can improve their business. (more)
I would love the opportunity to hear about your business, its obstacles, and your goals. We can arrange a time to swap questions either by phone, Skype or email. My clients are located around the globe, but if you happen to be in the Ottawa area, we can set a time to meet up. (more)
