i'm so glad you found your way here!

And it shows. My work is to adventure with you through to the heart of your business. Together we'll shine a light on all the big and small dreams, then we'll roll up our sleeves and get to work creating a digital identity for you to thrive from!

core values


My superpower is finding beauty, and amplifying it through design, strategy + intention. Think of me as the new sidekick creator in your business. Let me take away the burden of creating a cohesive brand and strategic website, so you can get back to sharing your story, building your business and attracting your ideal clients.

After many week nights spent creating, and week days spent in the classroom, eager and excited: I made the leap to design for myself with bright eyes and big dreams - and I've never looked back. I loved my days spent teaching, but believe there is a more sustainable way for me to connect, create, educate, empower, annnd make a living. It was in 2019 that I launched Golden Hour Designs with a heart for adventure and some big dreams. I strongly believe that life and work should be enjoyable, meaningful and fulfilling. I have a feeling you do too.

how did I find design?

"All the deliverables she sent were right on target. I felt seen and respected. Brannan was such a safe person to share my hopes and dreams with. I was so, so grateful to work with her!"
