Hi, I'm Marbry Walker. I create logo, print, digital and brand plan packages for owners & entrepreneurs. 

You may be launching a small business or a new product, or simply needing better branded elements for your already-growing business. I plan and design the brand elements that get you looking and feeling good about what you sell and do.

I LOVE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO PUT THEMSELVES INTO THEIR BRAND, BEFORE THEY PUT IT OUT THERE.

Whether you need a new brand from scratch, a brand overhaul, or simply an update, we always work together to get there.

We’re going to take an honest look at what makes your business special, and get to the heart of your brand before we make creative decisions (and take some creative risks)!

You want your business to look & feel legit

But after all the hard work you do, the risk is playing it safe with a brand that goes unnoticed, because it never really felt like you.

As a designer and strategist building her own business from the ground up, I get that. I work hard to stick to my purpose and make common sense choices, and brave choices, too.

So, let's start with your purpose: to know where you’re going, and create a brand that makes sense, and makes a change for the better – for you, and your business.

My experience

  • My past experience includes: creative consulting and branding for corporate collateral materials, marketing communications, public relations, and special events.
  • My design expertise spans the local, regional, and national markets on consumer, business-to-business, technology, social, and sports marketing projects.
  • I’m experienced as a project manager and team member.

The path that brought me to design

I graduated from Portland State University with a degree in graphic design in 1999. There was some temp work in there somewhere. Then in 2000, I began designing in-house for NEEA (Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance). I transitioned to a freelance arrangement, thinking I’d look for something more permanent. That was over 13 years ago. I think it has all been for the best.

What I love about design

I love to show my clients how wildly successful they could be if they’d stop and take the time to lay the proper foundation for their brand. I love to bring both guidance and flexibility to a client’s brand and communications.

What I do when I'm not working

You’ll find me spending time with my daughter and my husband, riding my bike, and trying to get someone else to cook me breakfast. TV is my guilty pleasure. Oh, and I love movies in the movie theater.
