about

Simon Trask

I am a graphic designer by trade, creative in nature, and motivated in spirit. I have built and sold a couple of businesses, and am now getting back to my roots. This is a time in my life to deliberately invest branding and design passion into people, brands and industries that I care deeply about.

I believe that brand perception is the brand itself, and that authenticity is paramount to effective branding and marketing communication.

02.BUSINESS

I believe that business is about finding needs and serving people, and that honesty, humility and transparency pay off in the long run.

03.RELATIONSHIPS

I believe that human connection builds purpose, and that tireless devotion to family, friends, clients, vendors and neighbors is worthy.

04.COMMUNITY

I believe that we are built to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, and that investing in people yields unending dividends.

Through 14 years I have logged over

my values & process


01.

TRUTH
Research. Discover.

I am on an endless quest to find truth. When it comes to my work process, learning everything I can about the brand and tribe is the first step.

02.

PURPOSE
Define. Clarify.

When you find purpose, it drives every decision. For brands, a clear purpose creates vision and establishes a strong foundation with the audience.

03.

EMPATHY
Understand. Relate.

Understanding other people is key to connecting with them and sparking change. As a guide, a brand must first relate to it's audience and prove it's worth.

04.

RELATIONSHIP
Connect. Invest.

Connecting with people around us is what life is all about, and branding is no exception. A brand is a living, active two-way relationship with an audience.

05.

GROWTH
Results. Proof.

As a human being, there is always a new frontier for growth. As a brand, growth can take many forms, and is the premier measuring stick for improvement.

06.

QUALITY
Value. Worth.

If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing right. As a brand, quality will always help a brand stand out and last the test of time.

I do what I do first and foremost for my family. They are the source of my drive and passion for what I create.

THAT'S WHY I AM COMMITTED TO QUALITY.

I have built two design businesses in my career by gaining a reputation of premium quality, concierge service and attention to detail. This is my promise to anyone I partner with: I will pour my soul into your brand so that we can watch it flourish together. Let's connect and build a relationship.

Never stop growing,

Brand & Design Consultant
