Austin and Jessica founded We Are Creative Studio, a Strategy, Branding, & Showit Web Design studio for fellow wedding creatives in the space. Catering to their clients through wedding creative education it opened the door with Austin's background to create beautiful digital identities to his fellow peers. Sounds like a good deal to me. Austin and Jessica are a powerhouse duo managing multiple businesses with their main focus being Wedding Videography & Photography. With lots of hats to put on Austin came to me wanting to add a valuable team member to his growing team. With the goal of having some major support in Website Design and creating the infrastructure they didn't have the time to spend on before they were booked and busy. This partnership is new so I am excited to update it as it progresses.

Design Partnership

First things first, these two businesses (The Creative Wedding & We Are Creative Studio) needed a proper digital home to showcase work, show a united front, allow their audience to find all the information they are looking for and so on and so forth. This started with the BEAUTIFUL website for The Creative Wedding. This Showit site started as a very cool coded horizontal site that was a bit janky on the back end and needed a bit of love. Within a short amount of time we straightened out the horizontal homepage, put a lot of love into it and now it is a jaw dropper in the wedding community. I won't be offended if you take a quick peek over at this website because it is a beauty.

the project that had

Next was the Branding & Web Design business's website which started as a template but, needed a little bit of strategy, flow, and an overall transformation to make it feel like theirs.

Very quickly we realized that between Austin, Emily (Branding Designer), and me, we are a dream team in the making. Truthfully I haven't been a part of a long term team like this before. Typically I work with a designer who is looking to hire their first member of their team BUT, working with a team in this new environment is teaching me a lot and I am excited to come back to this case study and update you in a few months.

For now, we are pumping out brands and creating digital homes for fellow wedding creatives to call their own.

Booking out with clients fast is a blessing and a curse. First, it is a blessing because this risk you took by launching your business is paying off almost immediately and that helps the imposter syndrome immensely. Second, you realize very soon after that you wished you could've eased into your business a bit more because now there is too much work to be done and not enough time in the day to take care of clients and ALSO put in proper infrastructure to have a smooth experience internally and externally. Once we get our head above water with client work we will be able to take a step back and strategize what is working, what programs should we be using to cater to our goals, and how can we provide a smoother experience for our clients. This is something we are exploring in the coming months.
