BRANDi Design is all about helping startups, small businesses and medium enterprises (SME) to portray a great perception about their brands online. We believe “Perception Is Everything” #PIE. Every business has a unique brand message and a story that is authentic, original and sets them apart from the rest but in most cases, it is communicated wrongly to their desired audience which invariably stagnates their brand.

At BRANDi Design, we strategically extract that amazing story and translate it visually using design and online advertising to engage with your targeted audience and inspire them to do business with you.
Our vision is our client’s SUCCESS. That is what motivates us to be the best at what we do because we believe our brand is a reflection of our clients and their results.

We are also very passionate about inspiring and training startup entrepreneurs, arming them with the knowledge they need in marketing and advertising to grow their businesses FAST.
