Because this isn’t some generic workshop with twenty other businesses. It isn’t about labouring through stuff you’ve heard before. It isn’t something you could get from watching a few YouTube videos. And it isn’t about giving you a short-term feelgood boost that doesn’t change a thing. Lightbulb is an intensive, tailored process that gets right to the heart of you, your business and your brand, finds out what’s stopping you from getting booked, and shows you how to fix it. And because we want to make sure you succeed, we include a 30 minute catch-up call one month later. But just to make sure it’s the right fit for you (and it isn’t always!) we’ll jump on a call together before you commit – to book yours, just click one of the “Schedule a call” buttons you’ll find throughout the site.

Can you afford not to invest in your brand? Businesses that invest in their future are often the ones that come out stronger. A business with a clear, compelling brand is one that resonates with its ideal customers – and tends to get the work.

On its own, no. Lightbulb doesn’t include any branding or copy (that’s taken care of in our Spotlight packages). Instead, it’s focused on the foundations your branding will stand on – because there’s no point paying for great-looking visuals that still leave clients in the dark. But we will act as a creative firestarter during Lightbulb, providing you with the inspiration, ideas and vision you need for a remarkable visual brand. And if you choose to stay on board with Creative Mongrel for our Spotlight branding and copy services, the full fee for your Lightbulb will be deducted.

If you’re in business, you have a brand. And if your plans include getting more clients, brand clarity is a must.

Branding needs a strategic approach. But not everyone can deliver that. Few designers are expert in brand strategy or take an overview covering everything from choice of images to tone of copy. Creative Mongrel provides a vital strategic view, bringing clarity, looking at the big picture and the little details, and making sure you get exactly what you need. Think of us as your independent creative advisor.


Our aim is to get you where you need to go as quickly as possible without compromising quality. Lightbulb is designed to take the bull by the horns, and bring you brand clarity in less than a day. For our Spotlight design and copy packages, timescales depend on the services involved.

Our services are built around the needs of individual coaches and consultants, so each website will differ. Typically, it will be a simple but beautifully designed site that showcases your message perfectly without unnecessary clutter. Facilities such as e-commerce are not included. If your needs are more complex, we can discuss this during our initial call.

Lightbulb is £500. Spotlight design and copy packages start from £2,300, and the cost of your Lightbulb will be deducted in full from your final invoice.

No (but the brand message we create for you will).

We only offer brand consultancy and design services, but we can connect you with some great professionals in the areas of PR, marketing, social media marketing / management, and copyright advice.
