MISHKU STUDIO

 
 
When I first started my business, I didn’t have a huge portfolio and I knew people wouldn’t take me seriously unless I had good images that really told the story of my brand. Sandra was able to use her personal brand of magic by taking my raw ideas and creating imagery that showed my audience that I was legit and that my business was legit. I have doubled my bookings and even doubled my prices since my branding shoot with Sandra and my calendar is booked out for the next 5 months!! I feel confident that I can command those high prices because I am worth every penny I charge. I’ve already made back my 4 figure investment in my images (and then some!)

Michelle's branding shoot is a representation of everything that Mishku Studio is and truly reflects the heart of her work. She wanted to create imagery that would not only represent her brand and story, but one that would also inspire an authentic connection with her audience. Drawing inspiration from the wild beauty of her Irish background, the refined and minimal aesthetic of the Japanese and her love for all things tactile, I designed and styled an environment that was delicate, natural and one that showed strength. Through the use of wild foliage, minimalistic Ikebana inspired arrangements, different mediums of texture, a curated selection of Japanese ceramics, I created a studio to tell the story of Michelle's passion as a graphic designer, illustrator and maker. As an artist's process is just as important as the final product, I felt it important to showcase Michelle's process in her work - whether she's putting together the inspiration board for each of her client's projects, designing logos or whether she's hand crafting beautiful illustrations. It was such an inspirational shoot and the images that resulted show how powerful it can be to have imagery that speaks true to your brand.
