If you visited with us at our booth during the Natural Fiber Extravaganza this past weekend in Lebanon, TN you probably recognized the quality of the brand identity that represents our company. The majority of this was designed by Lauren Blackwell. After interviewing several aspiring creatives, we selected Lauren to work with us in developing our brand. We wanted to be able to provide a new up and comer the opportunity to gain a great experience of working with a new company from the ground up in that design process. While working on the project she received training via a StoryBrand workshop hosted in Nashville. These workshops are amazing and they are designed to help companies “clarify your message”. We are so grateful for the results that Lauren was able to create for our business.
In an effort to continue providing these kinds of services and more to our customers we have partnered with Chad Kohler. Chad is a freelance motion graphics and animation designer by trade with over two decades of experience. I (JC) will continue to focus on “quality product construction”, “strategic process deployment”, and your “customer service toolbelt”, while Chad will focus on all your creative design needs – digital, print, video editing & website design… your business’s facial furniture if you will
“As a seasoned veteran in the design industry,
I enjoy creating and coordinating unique approaches to solving problems
and do so with efficiency and enthusiasm.
In my years of experience, I have specialized in all areas of design,
including branding, print, web, and motion graphics/animation. “
Chad Kohler, an excerpt from his About Me page
We’re excited to have Chad as a part of the team. I (JC) have known Chad for over 20 years, and I’m confident he brings to the table skills and gifts that will be a huge blessing to your business. A graduate of Ohio University, Chad designed the original content for Morning Star Fiber when we first started our mill in Apple Creek, Ohio. He married my sister-in-law and we’ve continued to become better and better friends ever since. I’d encourage you to check out a sample of his portfolio on his website and see his work first hand.
“Companies need to distinguish but also tie together their brand identity (what you want customers to think about you) and brand perception (what they actually think about you). You’ll spend a significant amount of time and money determining your brand identity, deciding on the image and promise you give to customers. If all goes well, your brand perception will match your brand identity and people will believe your promise to them. You’ll be rewarded with continual sales and brand loyalty. “Forbes, Nov 15, 2018
At the Master Crafted, we believe that having a solid brand identity that is attractive and cohesive across all your media products and represents your company perfectly is critical to reaching the current digitally native demographic. This type of brand recognition allows you to share your story with authenticity and transparency, and it gives them the platform upon which they can connect and engage with your business in meaningful ways and share it with their friends. Over time your dedicated and consistent customer service and products that you provide to your customers will marry your true identity and their perception based on the experience.
