Our Work

clients are saying

“Heart + Matter brings far more to the table than just pretty logos. They deeply care about brand being an expression of why we do what we do, and they want the solutions they put in place to be truly workable and beneficial for the business.”

clients are saying

“I loved the strategy process - it was such a good opportunity to get out of my head and onto paper where I'm going with my business. I loved the clarity that came throughout and Lauren's attention to detail and willingness to work with me even as ideas changed. I am proud of my new brand.”

If this sounds interesting, we’d love to hear from you.
