Our Story & Culture Fresh. Focused. Friendly. Fun. Family. tay·lor–made adjective \ˌtā-lər-ˈmād\ : made or fitted especially to a particular use or purpose In so many ways, everything about Taylor Made Branding was meant to be. Both Kareem and Audrey were entrepreneurs at heart with aspirations to start their own web and design agencies respectively. But something was missing. In 2011, Kareem met Audrey in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. It just clicked. They realized that they were the missing pieces to each other’s puzzle in every aspect of life and business. Following their trip, they shared their business ideas and life passions with one another, and soon after Taylor Made Branding was born. With both of their loves so deeply rooted in art, design, travel, and family, one of the most important aspects of Taylor Made Branding is ensuring that everyone stays true to who they are. They are true believers in the non-traditional working environment, allowing people to express themselves creatively in a welcoming family atmosphere.

Without knowing the complete details of our client’s business, their reasons for seeking our branding services, and expectations of the process and ﬁnal design, we cannot possibly be successful. Gathering these details takes a significant investment of time and patience, but it is a very critical stage in our process.
The next step of the information gathering stage involves conducting our own ﬁeld research. We learn as much as possible about the company, its history, its current brand identity and brand message and the effect it has had on market perception. We’ll then narrow down our findings to the client’s core elements and present them as
After receiving your feedback on the moodboard, we’ll revise where necessary and put the finishing touches on our plan of action.

At this stage our creative group works their magic! They take all of the information that we’ve gathered from our previous steps and begin to develop and design the most fitting brand identities for the client at hand. This is your cue to sit back and relax. Regardless of the medium, we focus first on building a solid foundation. From there, we build up and out in a way that allows your brand to shine.
After a final round of testing, revising, and refining, the only thing left to do is launch! It’s time to show off your brand to the world! We are there through the implementation of introducing your brand to the world and offering advice as to the best strategy to ensure success.
…with champagne, hugs and high fives! This is only the beginning for the journey you have set out to do. But it is a big step in letting the world know that you are serious about your business.

Growing up Kareem would sit and sketch for hours until his pencil would become a little snub, these key moments are when he fell in love and discovered his talents.

So, after dedicating 12+ years to the retail management world, he finally reconnected with his true love: Design. He hasn’t looked back since.

Portfolio Colliers International Branding, Proposal Template Design, Print Production, Keynote Template Design, Marketing Collateral We were responsible for designing proposal templates for one of the top 3 commercial real estate brands, Colliers International. Being one of the top commercial real estate organizations, working on jobs like these comes with huge responsibilities and expectations. Although we may not have played a direct role in closing their big deals, we like to think that we played a huge role in presenting Colliers International in the best way possible to its clients in order to help close significant deals. It takes a true skill to be able to take pages full of notes and numbers and pull them together to look aesthetically pleasing during meetings to negotiate multi-million dollar contracts.

Portfolio Mr. Potato Spread Brand Identity, Planning, Logo Design, Web Design & Development, Stationery Design, Social Media This project has a bitter sweet story to it, but in the end both parties were very happy. Mr. Potato Spread is a new fast-causal, lunch delivery-only company. Unlike pizza delivery and other fast food type delivery services, Mr. Potato Spread takes pre-orders at least a day in advance to ensure that every potato received is mouth watering and fresh. Keeping it simple and very minimal the owner just wanted a website for online ordering, some business cards, a menu and t-shirt design. They already had a logo design in place, but being the design team that we are we saw the full potential for the brand and decided to sketch and design a full brand, including a logo redesign. The finished
16 | Taylor Made Branding
result was a logo with a hand drawn curvy script to try to symbolize butter, to be used on the menu, business cards and various marketing collateral. The unfortunate part of this story is that at the end of the project the owner decided to go with a logo that was done by their daughter for sentimental reasons, which we completely understood. We are still in collaboration and are working on different avenues to help with the growth of their brand.

Portfolio Henin Realty Branding Strategy, Print Production, Social Media Design, Marketing Collateral Design, Magazine Layout Just as it’s true in home sales, that initial reaction is critical. As designers that are familiar with the real estate industry, we understand that, just as your listings should convey great “curb appeal,” your real estate marketing materials should communicate the same message. We also realize the look and feel of your marketing materials play a big role in how effective they will be as selling tools. Your beautiful properties should “invite” prospects to come inside to take a closer look, your website, flyers, ads, and postcards should solicit a response and encourage the prospect to take action! This is what we kept in mind while designing the marketing materials for Henin Real Estate to help drive traffic into these listings.
