The most important difference between designer and leader is one word: brand. Even though traditionally, 80% of a successful interior designer’s business is repeat business, the rapidly shifting digital landscape gives a whole new urgency to the saying, "out of sight, out of mind".  If you want to attract ideal clients, consistent income and opportunities like publication or licensing, you must get the story of who you are, and why you’re doing business, right. 


In this 1-hour branding and visibility strategy session, designers will be guided on how to bridge the gap between designer and leader.

We’ll uncover what a visibility strategy is and why it’s important and then, how it differs from traditional marketing.

Next we’ll look at the beginnings of your brand DNA and review a series of case studies for comparison.

Designers will learn how to define their audience of ideal clients and the power of online engagement. Finally, you’ll learn how to structure your business as a “circle of opportunity”.

This class is taught in a virtual classroom and is interactive so your questions are welcome and there is an opportunity for live coaching

Kim will be asking you questions to consider in the group conversation, these will be varied depending on the individual requirements of each session but could include:

  • What’s more important, your logos or your photos?
  • Is your online home a reflection of your best work?
  • Are you using the right internet marketing tools?
  • Do you have a consistent shelter publication strategy in place that takes into account the timing of your finished projects?
  • Do you know how to use social media to attract sponsorship and clients?
  • Do you skip networking events because you don’t want to hang with the competition?
  • Does your brand have the emotional DNA necessary to be licensed into products?


A laptop or desktop computer and a good internet connection. You will also need access to a speaker on your device and may find that the use of headphones will benefit the audio. The link for the webinar will be sent to you after you have booked your place and prior to the event.


Interior designers will work on establishing their brand DNA; learn how their blocks to being visible are impacting their bottom line; how to identify their audience of ideal clients; and how to create a circle of opportunity both on and offline.


This class is suited to designers with a residential practice and/or boutique hospitality and contract work.
