As a wellness advocate passionate about healthy living, Annie Bri’s blog inspires women to reconnect with their inner goddesses. By eating a whole and nutrient-dense diet and getting serious about self-care, Annie is sharing her story as she works to heal her digestive issues, mental health and hormonal imbalances — all while encouraging women to walk the path to wellness alongside her.
While Annie helps her readers build healthy habits, she came to us to create a brand and website that reflects her journey. With a thoughtful, timeless new brand and website, we’re delving into the journey of creating this beautiful branding project!
During our deep dive into the heart and soul of her blog, Annie expressed that she wanted a brand that was comforting and feminine. Beginning with a soft, earthy and feminine feel, we went to work creating a brand that felt intentional and representative of the healing journey.
Annie’s wellness blog branding is all about reconnecting you to best version of yourself, both mentally and physically. That’s why when we began crafting her colour palette, our intention was to create a comforting, feminine and unique feel.
Annie’s colour palette consists of earthy greens, dusty rose, a soft peony pink and creamy whites. Firstly, we began with a beautiful dusty rose and soft peony. Above all, the pink hues in Annie’s colour palette represent femininity, kindness, warmth, gentleness and calm. Because her brand focuses on creating a safe space for women to navigate their wellness journey, gentle pinks were a staple to this palette!
To ground the pink hues, we paired them with shades of green that represent nature, growth, harmony and balance. As a blog focused on mindful living, bringing in earthy greens was the perfect way to communicate what she creates! After that, we brought in creamy whites that convey clarity, peace and hope — all beautiful embodiments of mindfulness.
Together, these hues work harmoniously to represent healing, balance, mindfulness and warmth while channelling Annie’s approachable, grounded and warm brand personality. As one of the first things people notice about your brand, building a colour palette that tells your story is key!
Annie was drawn to cursive, so when we were choosing her brand fonts, we fell in love with this script reminiscent of hand-lettering. In the world of font psychology, every font evokes a different feeling. With its hand-written nature, this script font represents femininity, elegance, creativity and thoughtfulness — which are all important values to Annie and a key component of her brand personality!
To add a sense of balance to Annie’s typographic hierarchy, we paired this beautiful calligraphy with clean, modern sans serifs. Along with providing a foundation for her script to shine, sans serifs communicate an open, friendly feel that represents Annie’s warm nature!

Above all, Annie’s goal is to cultivate meaningful connections and inspire her readers’ path to physical and mental wellness. As a result, community-focused elements were key in her website design!
Firstly, we created a place to encourage partnerships and sponsorships to help Annie grow her blog and support her readers on their wellness journey with helpful products, services, ingredients and resources.
Additionally, we always recommend integrating a newsletter signup into your site to build your email list. Email marketing is a super effective way of building a tight-knit community around what you do.
