What you offer to the world is gorgeous & extraordinary. Together, we can tell a visual story that reflects that.
Hello, fellow creative dreamer!
I'm Nela Dunato, a multi-passionate visionary artist, designer, writer, and teacher from Croatia (EU). My mission is to empower creative people to express themselves authentically in their life and business.
I help passion-driven service-based businesses and independent creatives by crafting expressive brand identities and exceptional client experiences. Among my clients are writers, musicians, artisans, consultants, coaches, counselors, inventors, lawyers, and non-profits.
My superpower is combining artistic creativity with technical knowledge and problem solving. This enables me to create design solutions that are beautiful, functional, and meaningful. I translate the language of words, emotions, and sensations into the visual language.
I've poured over a decade of experience in design, marketing, business, and personal development into the book “The Human Centered Brand”, a practical guide that teaches small business owners everything they need to know about branding.
I teach graphic design as an Adobe® course instructor, lead in-person workshops, and speak at conferences, schools, and companies.
So that's me in a nutshell, can we talk about you for a minute?
Here's why I think (hope) you're here...
You have brilliant ideas you want to share with the people that get you.
You know that you could reach many more of them through your website and online marketing, but you're overwhelmed just thinking about all the options that exist out there, and how you could possibly stand out in a crowd of similar offers.
You've spent all these years improving your skills and developing your creations, and you know you can make a huge difference in other people's lives. You're ready to take the spotlight. Now, if only your brand and your website were up to this task...
You feel a disconnect between what you and your business are like on the inside, and what other people perceive on the outside. While your current brand has served you well up until now, you've overgrown it. Like a caterpillar whose destiny is to turn into a butterfly, you need to grow a new set of wings to take you further. That's where the art of Human Centered Branding comes in.
Masks are meant for Halloween, not for your business.
With my branding approach, you’ll never have to pretend you’re someone else. Human Centered Branding is not about pure cosmetics. It communicates clearly with your dream clients – the people that appreciate you as you are.
Forget relying on passing design trends and cookie-cutter templates. In my design studio every detail is custom crafted just for you, and your clients will be delighted and impressed by your marketing. We'll build a brand founded on your core values, unique skills, and personality traits.
If you need an ally to take care of your entire visual brand identity and all of its applications, I'd be happy to accompany you on your business adventure. Check out my creative services.
