Poster for Johanna White and Jason Barnard

Johanna White talks with Jason Barnard about leveraging your brand to magnetize your dream clients.

Johanna White is an award-winning graphic designer and visual branding strategist who designs premium brand identities that create impactful first impressions. She is the founder of Design By Jo Studio and believes that if someone is the best at what they do, they deserve to look like it! Johanna knows that there are no limits to success. She proved this a few years ago when she took life by the horns and founded three companies within a year while battling a brain tumor. At a time when everyone else in her life was suggesting she quit her job and live on benefits to pay the medical bills, she chose to do the opposite and defied the odds. The result is that Johanna is now a “Branding Magician and Dreamer Extraordinaire” for top performers, elite experts and companies looking to maximize their impact.

The concept of personal branding has taken center stage as an incredibly crucial element for both individuals and companies. A well-crafted personal brand not only reflects the collective personality of the company, but also serves as a beacon to attract dream clients and retain top talent.

In this wonderful episode, Johanna White shares her three-step branding process to ensure your brand message and narrative accurately reflects your personality: Know Your Value, Show Your Value and Live Your Value. Johanna explains the huge importance of understanding and embracing what sets you or your company apart from the larger competition and focusing on effectively communicating that unique and groovy value through your messaging and visuals. She emphasizes the significance of consistently embodying the qualities of your brand in every action and interaction in order to build trust and a strong reputation.

As always, the show ends with passing the baton… Johanna passes the virtual baton to next week’s super insightful guest, Letitia Boardman.
