About This Class

Welcome to Visionary Branding Course with Nadia Payan!

This course is perfect for those of you interested in learning a branding process that creates a brand that is truly aligned to who you are. With my guidance, you will create a brand that stems from the inside out, starting from a self-reflection and inner knowing foundation and allowing that to be your north star as you create a visual identity for your brand.

I’ve used this process for companies, people and organizations with amazing results. The class is complete with downloadable worksheets to support your brand building.

By the end of this class, you’ll have clarity about the creative business you want to build and how you can do it in an authentic way, how to create a consistent visual story that aligns with your brand, and make your very own brand board that ties it all together.

It’s time to create a brand that is unmistakably you!
