Your brand is not what YOU say it is, it’s what THEY think it is.
If you have a business, you already have a brand whether you’re conscious of it or not. A brand emerges from every point of contact between you and your audience. Each interaction informs the story they’re writing about you in their head.
“Perception starts with the eye.”
It doesn’t take tens of thousands of dollars to have a kick-ass brand. It takes a kick-ass visual identity.
- Have you been frustrated by designers that make things pretty but don’t know anything about marketing?
- Have you been left in the lurch by web developers that seem excited at kick-off and then disappear for weeks or months?
- Have you played the comparison game with other people’s websites and lost?
- Do you think you need a seven-figure business to have an awesome brand?
“The traditional view of design is that it has four possible goals: to identify, to inform, to entertain, or to persuade. But with branding there’s a fifth: to differentiate. While the first four are tactical, the fifth is strategic, with its roots deeps in aesthetics — a powerful combination of logic and magic.”
- Marty Neumeier, The Brand Gap

“I wanted to do something totally unique with Experts in the Raw and I knew that I needed amazing visuals to communicate the awesomeness! I made a great move with Vanessa. She got me and what I was trying to do right from the start — and she created a website that’s bringing in thousands of new subscribers and has EVERYONE talking!
Great, innovative work — and she was an angel to work with. Great service, always there to help with small changes here and there, and I felt very supported. I seriously wouldn’t touch one of these projects without her. She’s a freakin’ genius!”
- Anastasia Netri, ExpertsInTheRaw.com
“Vanessa has been an invaluable asset. In brainstorming sessions, her fast thinking, creativity and positive attitude bring out the best in her colleagues and in the projects she works on. She’s expert at taking big ideas and making them a reality. And — unlike most ‘creative types’ — she manages her time and priorities well.”
- Brent Miller, Hook Line Marketing
“Vanessa is a supremely talented designer and developer. She has conceived, developed, designed, built and launched three websites for me that directly serve my professional path. The sites she has produced have been mentioned numerous times by business contacts as one of the key reasons they wanted to meet with me.
Vanessa not only produces great results, but she follows a buttoned-up professional process of creative and technology development with her clients that an agency or digital solutions vendor would envy. From brief to post-launch tweaking, Vanessa is on-strategy, on-time, on-budget — and is inventive, creative, and inspired in her craft and skill.
She is also a warm human being with a great sense of humor and a desire for collaboration and partnership with her clients. I highly recommend Vanessa and her work.”
- Katie Rogin, writer, filmmaker and marketing strategist
I started Zamora Creative to help business owners create stunning visual identities that make them wildly successful. I’ve seen too many entrepreneurs and small business owners struggle with branding. Either they spend way too much money on fly-by-night “designers” that don’t know jack about marketing or the internet, or they do the best they can with free tools that leave them feeling unsure and unsatisfied. Ultimately, they’re left with creative that doesn’t serve them — it’s not beautiful, it’s not useful, and sometimes it actually drives their ideal clients away.
I’ve been a computer geek since childhood, internet geek since high school, and graphic designer for over 16 years. I learned branding and marketing through my work in the dotcom and telecom industries and went back to school in my late 20s to complete a degree in English. Coming from a family full of business owners, I just couldn’t stand the thought of working in a fluorescent-lit cubicle for 40 hours a week again. I started this business because it became time to step out of the cubicle and up to the plate, to serve business owners that create positive change in the world, and to make sure that they manifest the kick-ass brands that attract, inspire, and make for wild success!
