Testimonial - Style Savvy

Before coming across Olea and Fig I was lost as to where to go next with my business. The plethora of information out there was confusing, technical and didn't really resonate with me or my values. I was trying to do everything at once and not very successfully, it was overwhelming and at times frustrating. Frankly I was ready to give up defeated and put it in the "too hard basket".

Enter Annie and Terrie whose content and expertise is relatable, breaks it down into easy steps and comes from a genuine place of wanting to help and empower others through their own experience. I immediately realised these were my people and looked forward to getting their emails and updates.

By following their simple tips on brand messaging and strategies as well as differentiation, I was able to dig deeper and achieve clarity on what I actually offer and why as well as my unique background and methods of working.

It was a fresh approach and made me realise I already had it all there but needed some guidance and inspiration on pulling it together and communicating in a clearer and more authentic way.

Before I found Olea & Fig, I couldn’t figure out how to express my brand in a clear way while letting my personality and business values shine through. I felt frozen. Like I had all of these ideas, but no way to get them out of my head and onto paper; I never thought I could make my brand come alive and tell a story through images.

I immediately felt trust and passion come through during my meetings with Annie. She has an amazing ability to ask open ended questions that lead you down a path of self and brand discovery to allow the “real you” shine through. Annie was quick to respond to questions, fun, professional and kept me informed every step of the way. During our very first call I felt like it was a good match. The virtual calls combined with the “homework” gave me space to think out loud, reflect and refine until we nailed a brand that represents who I am and what I do in a fun and authentic way.

This branding work is the cornerstone for everything else I will do this year. I have so much more clarity and confidence than I did before I started working with Annie. I am so thankful for Olea & Fig for creating such an amazing experience.

A beautiful surprise at every step, Annie and Terrie are an absolute joy to work with. Olea & Fig has a remarkable gift of understanding a Brand and its true essence. From the Questionnaire, to the Brand Shoot, and the details trickling after, I was met with nothing but professionalism; their execution was simply flawless. Such an incredibly thoughtful experience, I recommend Olea & Fig to any Business Owner looking to explore their visual story. I've had the honor of working with both halves of Olea & Fig, and could not have asked for a more wondrous duo.

Before I found you guys, I was clueless about how to use IG as a business marketing tool. And my branding was abit all over the place.Trying to google or search for tips via Pinterest was frustrating as it wasn't a systematic way of organising the process. it was usually just bits of information that seemed helpful rather than a structured methodology.

Right now, I am clearer about the style and direction I am going for. and you have most definitely given me good tips and visuals to follow. I also love the fact that you took the time to actually "interview" me and ask the crucial strategy questions. It not only pointed me in the right direction but also got me thinking about what I should prioritize for my business.

I just wished we lived in the same city so I could use the full sweep of services you offer! I am glad we could work together and to be honest, the time difference (between Singapore & the U.S.) didn't really matter much so that was a pleasant surprise!

Annie has been incredible to work with! I've learned so much about the importance of branding from her. I went to her initially for images for social media but ended up getting a brand consultation as well. She is so knowledgeable in this area and has really helped me figure out my brand from every angle - not just the visual aspect of it. Annie was able to help me clarify my mission (which I didn't even have to begin with), my message and who I serve. This alone has helped me to become laser focused with everything I do. Her Instagram strategy session was also very helpful and helped me feel more confident in building my brand on Instagram. Everything she teaches is about building your brand with intention and authenticity and it totally makes sense!

I absolutely loved my experience with Olea & Fig! I worked directly with Annie, and not only is she an easy and great person to work with, but she's also an expert when it comes to creating your brand. I am a photographer and although I can create beautiful images, I didn't really know how to piece all of my work together to create a seamless brand. After working with her, my focus and message became clear and I know understand how to incorporate cohesiveness into both my Instagram and website. She walked me through every step and provided me with excellent resources. I could not be happier with my experience and highly recommend Olea & Fig to any business owner who is looking to set themselves up for branding success!

Olea & Fig were amazing to work with! I feel like they captured my brand essence to a T, and they’ve given me the incredible gift of feeling confident in the images I have of my work. I now have a bank of beautiful photos, custom made for my business to choose from, and I can’t wait to start using them to represent my brand! They were incredibly generous and quick to respond–I definitely plan to keep working with them in the future!

From brainstorming ideas to execution, Annie has always been on-point. Throughout the whole process, she was very professiona,l yet made me feel comfortable about sharing my ideas. She was very responsive, easy to communicate with, and explained everything very well - it made working together easy despite it being virtual. I was blown away by how she was able to bring our vision to life, complete with all the details - the result far exceeded my expectations! I feel blessed that I got to work with Annie, and I'm excited to know that there are amazingly talented creatives like her out there!

Where do I start with these two beautiful souls… Annie & Terrie. I had the most wonderful time dreaming and planning my new brand shoot with Annie & Terrie. These two beautiful humans gave me the direction I required for my much needed brand revival.

They Skyped from overseas and listened to every little detail about how VC started. Every emotional word was observed, and curated perfectly through their effortless styling. Their love for all things beautiful made this huge change for me seem like a simple transition. Once we met, everything was seamlessly and perfectly coordinated and styled, like they had known me and my brand for decades. Their attention to detail and simple tips are wondrous.

I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort you both invested into my brand.

I love the journey with you both so much.

Olea & Fig invaluable information and practical advice. They helped me understand the importance of building a cohesive brand and has completely changed my design mindset. Before, I used to take and post random photographs of my floral work on Instagram. I did not pay much attention to visual branding and always wondered how one could create such captivating IG gallery. I have now become much more intentional about my imagery style and choices on social media and I do think people are connecting to that better overall.

Olea & Fig’s eye and clean aesthetic is one of the best in the industry. Annie & Terrie’s signature elevated vibe is threaded throughout all they do and they effectively know how to cast that vision to the team. I was a photographer under Annie’s creative direction and was refreshed by her clear voice yet openness with collaboration. Her follow-through and attention to detail additionally elevate her design.  Would 10/10 work with them again!

I love working with Olea & Fig on my brand shoot. You really helped me get a clear idea on the imagery I needed and guided the stylistic direction of the shoot so perfectly. Everything went so smoothly and I was so in love with the photos at the end, and I know it was completely down to your overall vision and styling on the day as planned. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

I am so grateful to Olea & Fig / Annie for her help with my personal brand shoot. I have to admit, initially I was not convinced how she could help me with my branding but I was pleasantly surprised. After our first meeting, I was impressed how she had a clear vision of how to promote my business on a personal individual level. As a entrepreneur and a designer, it was hard for me to see the importance of my personal image outside the language of the product brand & image. During the shoot, Annie was extremely organized and made the day go so smoothly. I was incredibly impressed by the overall presentation and creative direction she provided, it was beyond my expectations. (I have worked with many creative directors who do not have the skill set to execute direction with finesse.) I highly recommend her to provide insight on how to improve your Branding Direction & Visual Style.

Dear Annie and Terrie, I should be sleeping but my mind is racing through all the events that have happened these past two days (at Élan Vital: Sydney). I just want to say a big thank you from the very bottom of my heart, for the both of you in pouring so much into me and into the rest of the group. We've been so blessed by you both! I wish you both the very best and may you continue to be blessed and be a blessing to the world in spreading beauty and uplifting hearts! Lots of love to you both!

I was new to fine art photography and so I arrived feeling uncertain of my own abilities. But Amelia and the Olea & Fig Team had created such an encouraging environment that we all felt safe and confident to learn and share with each other. I’ve gained so much more clarity in what I want to do next in just two days, which probably would take way much longer if I were to figure this out alone. And it doesn’t really matter how experienced you are in the industry, you will surely have something to take away. I would highly recommend Elan Vital Workshop to those who have a creative dream to pursue. It’s definitely life changing for me! I cannot thank you ladies enough for offering so much in the workshop!

I now have the confidence, as well as directions to start my flower blog/ community and will definitely keep you posted!

Such an honor to attend this class just before leaving Taiwan. Our talented teacher, Terrie, gently walked us through the language of visual flow. And the essential rules to apply when we try to compose the frame of our authentic design thinking. In the demo part, She showed us how to bring those everyday objects or beautiful props into a storytelling of a personal portrait or brand shoot that can speak to the viewers. Yes ! The ultimate goal to build a connection.⚡️ It was a playful afternoon full of aesthetic sparks !
