How I Help You

Choosing a Branding and Design Partner is a Really Big Deal.

You want a blend of smarts, talent, and commitment to your success. Through listening and asking the questions that get to the heart of issues you’re needing to solve, with trust and vision, I can deliver compelling creative solutions that will make your brand shine.


“Kristin Peterson is one of those rare designers who is the whole package – she’s brand savvy, thorough, passionate, and focused on the end result. Her astute marketing sense belies the fact that she is a true artist. Her unique and refreshing take on design is not only thoughtful but full of insight, wit, and a keen attention to detail. She is always ready to tackle something new, is precise with specs for both print and digital projects, and she can write. In short, she is an indispensable partner.
I trust her and highly recommend her.”

Grand Ciel is a creative brand identity design studio, offering strategic brand marketing campaigns and smart design solutions for both web and print.


I work with SMBs owners and teams, women entrepreneurs, marketing directors and project managers in the for-profit and non-profit sectors.


Creating strategic branded marketing communications that inform, are memorable and incite action — whether that means getting your audience to buy a service, a product, an idea or simply fall in love with your brand.


I take a holistic approach to your business – understanding your business’ funnel for generating revenue, (and / or donors, supporters, fans, brand advocates), and work to create a solution that spells success to you.


Would we make good partners? I offer a free 30-minute “Getting to Know You” consultation to hear about your business and needs to help shape a course of action that works best for you and your organization.
