Submissions and Guest Posts

The Brand Stylist is an inspirational and accessible blog for entrepreneurs and graphic designers. As well as bringing you the very best of personality packed brand identity design I’ll share my expert tips on exactly why these designs work and how to up your game.

My focus is on unique, stylish and distinctive brand identities. Engaging designs that authentically capture the essence of the businesses and create a powerful impact in the market.

This is about more than smart and it’s about more than the latest design fad. It’s about creating a contemporary look that makes your unique business irresistible to the people that matter the most.

Brand Styling Submission Guidelines

If you’re a graphic, web or brand designer and you have a project that you think would fit within the ethos and style of The Brand Stylist I’d love to hear from you.

I feature brand styling projects, logo design, packaging and web design so if your project fits within that then please follow the submission guidelines and get in touch. If you’re photographing your products I love to use light, bright and clear photography with a light or pale background. Texture is good too and I try to avoid dark backgrounds where I can help it.

Projects featured on The Brand Stylist:

  • Are packed with character and have a very distinctive style
  • Are well crafted and follow basic design principles
  • Reflect the values of the company they represent
  • Place typography, colour, pattern and illustration at the very heart of the design

To submit your project

Please send me an image 1200 pixels wide (any height, within reason) at 72dpi with your brand board, website design or packaging project along with with a concise summary of the brief (max 250 words).

You can email submissions at fionahumberstone dot com. If I am interested in featuring your project I will come back to you within two weeks.
