Does that sound like you?

Monarch Design Co. was the perfect choice for me to refine my brand. I had started my business quickly and never had a true branding experience. Ashley used her expertise to ask all the right questions diving into not only the fun visual parts but the core attributes of my business to make sure what we created would help me serve my ideal clients. When I received the initial concepts I was blown away. Ashley had put together so much my heart and soul into those concepts and truly nailed it. Any time I had any subsequent questions or changes with the branding or website, Ashley was so helpful and quick to tackle the issues. I would highly recommend their branding and web design services if you are looking for a cohesive and beautiful brand & web experience.


Ashley helped me with my logo design / branding strategy and website design. Our story and our journey was one of the most soul searching, rejuvenating, and amazing experiences ever!!!!! If I am being honest, prior to meeting Ashley it was a bit scary to invest in myself/my brand and company - when I was looking for a designer and came across Ashley. She created a custom package tailor to my needs; pushing the needle forward in the right direction of my brand. Ashley gave me the sense of hope, and little shove to really embrace and get out of my comfort zone. Targeting on the market, client and stories I really want to tell. This experience was sososososo worth it on sooooooooooo many levels!! You truly cannot put a price tag on Ashley’s talents!!!

I truly enjoyed working with Ashley to rebrand my business. I needed it to reflect my current level of business while keeping it timeless so it can grow with me. Not only did she listen to my needs, but she also showed me how changing a few small details or even the colour can make a huge difference. I didn't have a set deadline for my rebrand, but she still kept me on target with weekly tasks and a checklist of items. This really helped me see what needed to happen and how long it was going to take.Since Ashley created a new, fresh brand for me and completely overhauled my website, I have had an increase in website traffic. I have also received numerous compliments on my new branding and get asked for my business card often (which Ashley also created for me).I can't recommend Ashley enough. Not only is she friendly, but she listens to your wants, and shows you your needs. She works with you, not for you. It was a team effort to create this new brand for me and I am so happy with the process and result.


I worked with Ashley on my business rebrand. Ashley took all the information I provided and built off that. I was so happy with the end result - exactly what I was looking for. Ashely was great to work, quick to respond and offer ideas. If you are looking for someone to work with for your rebrand or wedding stationery, I highly recommend Monarch Design Co.!
