To be completely honest I didn't know jack shit about web design or branding, not to mention I had no idea there is a whole strategy behind it. My idea was to simply create some beautiful logos and websites. So that's how I came up with the name Brand Me Gorgeous.
Funny enough I have since learned that's not how this works. You can't just throw a pretty logo and website together and call it a day. Now, after more than 5 years in I can say that the work I put in isn't a natural skill I have. It's a combination of passion and what I have educated myself in along the way. I have taken courses, made mistakes and turned that into creating profitable brands and websites for my clients, the right way.
My journey in design, started with photography in 2008 when I bought my first digital SLR camera. I then created a Facebook account, joined several photography groups, started learning how to use my camera in manual settings and what RAW images were, as well as, editing in Photoshop and Lightroom. I went on from there growing and learning about the business side of photography.
After I felt comfortable enough with my work I decided it was time to open up a photography business, so I did and I realized I needed a website and logo to showcase my work for potential clients to see. So, I started building a website and designed a logo. That's when I realized my passion was in design.
I started something I wasn't ready to do, but here we are. Looking back what got me here today was a lot of sleepless nights, tons of coffee, and being inspired by the community of my follow Showit Designers.
"Mindy is my fairy godmother. I had so many issues with my website (built by another designer) and it was a very stressful time trying to understand why my site wasn't working as it should. Mindy uncovered a lot of issues in the site build, SEO, site structure and came in and took all the stress away. She is super responsive to messages, delivers exactly what she promises and REALLY knows her stuff. If you're looking for support on your ShowIt site, or SEO assistance look no further - Mindy is your girl. "
"This woman is phenomenal! By far, the best website building experience I've had. She got the job done quickly, beautifully, and well within my budget. Her personal skills and work integrity made this an immeasurable experience for me! Thank you, Mindy Vassalle for Branding Me Gorgeous!"
"I found Brand Me Gorgeous on the Showit FB group and reached out to her after taking the Showit template as far as I could. She was very warm and supportive and I felt she understood exactly what I was trying to achieve. Mindy was able to pick up where I lelt off and finish my web site quickly. She saved me time and frustration and I have also enlisted her services on other projects such as SEO and advertising materials"
"Mindy showed talent, insight, patience and excellent follow up during this whole process. I was pleased that we could view the site bit by bit as she constructed it. This gave us the opportunity to provide feedback and make changes according to our vision. We truly have never had a website that represents our company more than the site that Mindy produced."
"Honestly, from the beginning of being referred to Mindy, she was willing and ready to tackle my website needs. After one design and deciding to switch it up and remove a few things, she was very patient, responsive and on point with every change. I am definitely going to use her again for any updates or changes. She made the process so easy and she is a light overall, so I would recommend her again and again!"
