Elizabeth Miner

I’m the Owner and Creative Director of Silvermine Creative, providing captivating design, language, & brand identities for visionary people and projects. I’m a digital nomad, wife, and mom of two little boys. I love exploring the wilderness, artistic projects of all kinds, and a good cocktail.


Done Messing Around

I love it when a new client decides, right there on our first call, that they want Silvermine Creative for their design or branding project. That can’t always happen, and when it doesn’t, it ok! But when it does, it’s something special.

To me, that says there’s a good chance that THIS project will be especially synergistic and fun to work on, and produce show-stopping results.

That absence of hesitation tells me they are SO ready to get started on their brand identity, their next-level marketing assets, their website, whatever it is – because they’re ready take their place among the best, and finally be recognized and rewarded for all their hard work.

In short, they are DONE MESSING AROUND.

People in your industry are going to experience that triumph this year. Could you be one of them? If not, why? What’s the fundamental difference between you and them?

  • Is it that their brand identity is just so clear and compelling that it makes them the immediate, natural choice for their customers?
  • Is it because their online presence is well-crafted to captivate and convert, while giving their audience a genuinely great experience?
  • Or, is it simply that they’re SUPER CONFIDENT selling their whatever they’re offering, because it presents so well?

When your marketing stuff looks great and feels totally aligned with your work, telling others why they’ll love it, too, just feels like second nature.

  • Of course, it’s possible they “just have more experience than you”. There’s only one way to solve that problem – start bringing in LOTS of opportunities to do your thing!

It all begins with a captivating and clear brand identity, and beautifully designed assets that empower you to sell, authentically and with confidence.

Washington state has such a huge variety of landscapes, climates, wildlife – it’s incredibly inspiring. The smoke rolled in on the second morning of our stay at Crescent Bar, on Wanapum Lake and the Columbia River.

Three Considerations for Rebranding

You’re doing it again. Staring blankly at your branding. Something is just OFF about it. You LOVED your branding when you started
