BRAND ARCHITECT for individuals, small business and corporations. [tlbx5] exists to inspire, capture and connect ....Inspire through vision, capture through education, connect through building relationships.  I design the concept, the strategy to implement websites, social media, project launch, company launch, individual personal branding.  TLBX5 partners combine to create custom teams to execute. My clients have included: The Weather Channel, Southern Living Magazine, HGTV, The Brookings Institution, Reynolds Metals, Northwestern Mutual, Mobile Oil, French's to name a few.

"BRANDING is about anything that someone touches, sees or hears about you or your company. It is about relationship. You can't buy that it has to be earned. That is all in the details, no facades. you can't hide who you really are, but you can manage you brand in such a way that people will respect your boundaries. It is called developing brand equity, disrupting the general perception and creating a space just for you that is not relied on the market."

DIRECT TO THE CORE, balanced with emotional intelligence and a designer's brain. Sense of humor built in. I work from referrals and keep my client list confidential. From private individuals to corporations, my work is best done, when you don't know it's me and the focus is on my client. Which sometimes are the agencies who use us for outsourcing. One of our biggest brands sold for 3.5 billion. I won't take it on unless I believe in you or the company.  An introvert at heart, would rather be the ghost, than be center stage. Happy to chat though,  hate when people take the wrong step for fear of asking a question. 

I HAVE been a professional designer since I was 16,  a teacher thought I was a good fit for a city project -things just blossomed from there. I grew up at the beach, the ocean runs through my veins and will forever inspire. My mentor and first design instructor once said to be a success in this business, you have to be a chameleon-do whatever it takes. It has worked for me for 40 years, through raising a family, tragedy and natural disaster...mainly, because the basis of my work is DSRPTN. My niche is new concepts, new ventures, life challenges, brands in chaos.

It is the designer's duty to  bring order to chaos. Disruption brings order as the saying goes. 

The vision for  TLBX5 has been always been to be The Power Behind The Brand
