These one-to-one brand design surgeries are perfect for creatives who want to start making money from selling what they make, or for existing entrepreneurs and small creative businesses who would to review their current branding.


Jenny Smith is an award-winning graphic designer with many years of experience creating brands for a range of clients including Arran Aromatics, Fairtrade and Matthew Algie Coffee. Jenny also runs our soap-making workshops in her role as owner of The Scottish Soapworks.


In this 1.5 hour, one-to-one brand design surgery with Jenny, you will discuss your business idea, a brief to create your brand identity, and how you will apply your brand to ensure you have a recognisable 'look' across all your digital and printed products and marketing materials: everything from packaging to social media, and business cards to aprons. Jenny will follow up your session with notes from the conversation, and practical suggestions on how to design your brand, and how to apply it to various marketing materials.


Appointments are available throughout the day and evening starting from 9.30am. Email Lynn to book your slot or for more information.


Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.

  • The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.


    Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.


    The price includes all materials and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.


    All our experiences are also available to book as a private group for up to 8 people. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
