About Hawk Design

Small Business Branding Made Simple.

Hawk Design is an independent graphic design studio, run by myself, Cody Hockin. My studio specializes in brand identity design and works with small businesses in local markets. It has been my experience that most local small businesses don’t know where to start when it comes to creating and managing their brand identity. I have also come to find that most business owners don’t have an exuberant amount of time and money to invest all at once.


Hawk Design crafts scalable branding solutions for like-minded business owners to achieve greater success.

What you can expect as a new client.

This is my general onboarding process for new clients. Depending on the needs of your business this might change on future projects.

Initial Client Meeting

Discuss Project

The initial client meeting is a free consultation. I like to get to know my potential clients, understand their needs and figure out if we are a good fit for each other.

Written Proposal

Words of Agreement

At this stage, we are ironing out the details of what work is to be done. Any proposal given is not set in stone and can be altered per client's request.

Work Begins

Discovery Phase

In order for any work to begin, you will need to pay the initial down payment. This stage will look different depending on the project. I will have outlined the scope of work and timeline in the proposal. No work will be started until proposal is signed.

Work Continues

Client Feedback

Throughout the design process, I will be communicating with the client on the progress after each milestone is completed. I am looking for client feedback and approval to keep moving forward.

Wrap Up

Package Final Deliverables

Sign, sealed, and delivered. It is at this stage that the scope of work has been completed and the final payment has been processed. I will package all deliverables and send them to you upon final payment
