What's Your Path to Ryse?

Lauren has lived up to her reputation in every way! she rebranded Manka Interiors, developed a beautiful, user friendly website for me with all new photos, and also, took my hand and showed me a much more effective way to utilize social media to engage and grow my business! I have been absolutely 100% thrilled with EVERYTHING she has done for my company and at a reasonable price point. She is also a kind hearted individual that gives back to her community and to charitable organizations. I would, and have recommended Ryse Design co. to anyone wanting a fresh, new image to their brand!"

I'm Lauren!

I was born and raised in the heart of the Midwest with a heart for giving back through creative storytelling.

My passion for creating is what led me to photography and videography. My curiosity is how I became good at it. Design taught me how to direct and compose my work and how to present the story you uncover to the world, while journalism showed me the importance of telling stories truthful and completely.

I’ve been developing my practice in a variety of creative outlets for over six years and I enjoy learning and exploring our world every day.

A Look into my pRocess

#1 - RESEARCH & AUDIT

We begin with reviewing your brand platform, including your purpose, position, promise, essence, values and value proposition. This will help you measure whether or not your marketing communications and touch points remain in alignment with your brand strategy and vision.

#2 - CREATIVE DIRECTION

Creative direction is where design meets strategy. Marketing a company means having a lot of moving parts. Creative direction is the process of overseeing it all, guiding all the pieces so they create a beautiful picture while still maintaining the company goals — and bottom line.

#4 - STYLE GUIDE

Maintaining quality and consistency in your brand’s content is a challenge. A brand style guide takes the heart and soul of your brand—your mission, vision and values—and translates it into design. It also tells everyone exactly how to communicate your brand.

#5 - CONTENT CREATION

Brand photography is a suite of professional images that represent your business visually, and fit with your visual identity through their use of art direction. These can include photos of you, your team, your products, your process, your space and other things that make your business unique. 

#3 - BRAND DEVELOPMENT

Branding is more than just creating a logo and slapping it on a website. Brand is about a consumer’s perception of your company. Connecting emotional with a brand takes dedication, a brand leader and relentless following the style guides rules and guidelines. That is why it is essential to understand the brand development process and how to do it successfully.

#6 - WEB DESIGN & SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION

Everything about your website - including the content, the way it looks, and the way it works - is determined by the website design. By implementing use of interactive features, your web design can create a positive and consistent user experience online. This, in cohesion with your branding and style guide, creates trustworthiness and credibility in your industry and across the community.
