Welcome to the first blog post! It’s great to have you here but you probably want to know what you’re potentially going to be spending your precious time reading and whether you should even bother? Let’s dive in….
Who we are?
Let’s get the formalities out of the way. I’m Nicola, I own and run Love Luna Designs and we help female led, small businesses create brand loyalty through strategy and design.
I live in Yorkshire, am married with one fur child and coffee and Disney run through my veins. I’m probably only about 30% actual blood at this point haha.
I ventured into branding in 2021 because as a small business owner, I have been there just like you. I owned a cupcake business around 10/11 years ago and if I knew then what I knew now, I might not be here typing. I feel so passionately about helping other small businesses not struggle the way I did, watching other people seemingly thrive while I sat like an outsider not knowing what I was doing wrong. I know now that I had no strategy and I hadn’t really got a full grasp of the foundations of my business before I went out into the world. We can follow all of the expert advice out there but if we don’t know what’s at the heart of our business and everything we stand for, who our audience actually is, we’re shouting into the abyss trying to be heard in a world full of noise.
What will I be blogging about?
I’ll be sharing everything from behind the scenes in the life of a branding business, to tips and guides for certain industries, and even providing you with content that helps you get a solid foundation without needing to invest at the outset because I get it, branding is an investment. It’s a worthwhile investment, but it’s an investment nonetheless.
Why should you read the blog?
If you’re running a small business that’s female led, feeling a bit caught up in self doubt and wanting to attract attention, this blog is for you. If you’re in the food & drink or lifestyle industry then you should definitely hang around because these are our jam (no pun intended!)
The blogs will be fortnightly so you don’t have to worry about your inbox being spammed and the first official post will drop on March 6th. Sundays will be the day we post and send them out so we’d love it if you stuck around and subscribed.
Speak to you all soon,
