What is a brand?

Just as scents and sounds can trigger a memory so too can a brand. Your brand speaks for you. The question is does it say the right things? A brand is more than a name…it is the sum total of a consumer’s experiences with a recognizable product or service – and it is powerful! Good branding is valuable to a company. Likewise, bad and/or ineffective branding can be equally costly! With Coastal Blue Media our business is branding!

What our customers have to say about us!

Karen Morgenstern

“Working with Erin Kellie has been such a pleasure. Her attention to detail and creative abilities along with strong professional attitude made our experience positive. I like how Erin took our concept for a book and walked us through the process from beginning editing to a final professional looking printed book. She offers suggestions and opinions in a respectful and considerate manner where you don’t feel pressured to change how you think your project should look. I appreciated how Erin followed through in a timely manner and was readily available to answer questions. I would highly recommend working with Erin in any of your creative endeavors.”

Scott Davis
Architect

"The main purpose for any reference is to answer the question – would I work with Erin again?. Yes, because Erin has collaborated with me on several projects each one challenged her graphic design and technical skills with good results. I expect the best and receive it. I encourage you to work with Erin and see for yourself."

Melissa Tripp
Director, Ways and Means - Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey

“We would like to thank Erin Kellie for her wonderful work on our new logo. Erin was very easy to work with and produced a logo that has gotten rave reviews. We were very happy with her service and would recommend her to anyone for all design needs.”
