branding Package

Our design process is unique because we start by developing a solid brand strategy before any sketching begins. We partner with our clients to define in detail their brand’s personality and aspirations. This brand strategy will not only guide your business as you grow, it also serves as the foundation for all our design. This ensures our clients always make a great first impression, stand out from the crowd, attract the right customers, and get the most out of their investment for years to come, not just a new business card (although you get that, too). 


Our Branding Package Includes:

Brand strategy

Logo System

Branded Colors and Fonts

style & Use guide

brand photography

Business Card

Squarespace web design

If you need a website (or a revamp to an old one) we do that, too. With your brand as a blueprint, we can design and build you an attractive, easy-to-maintain, and responsive website built around your goals. Whether you want to look more put together, keep your customers coming back for more, gain more followers on social media or change the world, our websites will give you the confidence and capability you need to upgrade your online presence.

SquareSpace Web Design and Development

Social Media Launch Kit

Optimized SEO

need a little more?


Although branding and web design are usual starting points, the majority of our clients add on à la carte services (like custom illustrations, business naming, copywriting, hand-lettering, iconography, extra print and / or digital collateral, and packaging) for a more custom experience.

Together, we are Free The Robot Creative, a mom and pop design shop creating custom brands and websites for entrepreneurs and businesses both small and not so small. 

It’s our mission to design distinct, cohesive visual identities for business owners who are ready for their business to look as good IRL as it does in their heads.

Shay serves as the in-house web guru and project manager extraordinaire. Bobby handles the creative direction and copywriting. He also doodles a lot. Tobo looks cute. That’s his only job.

Okay, okay … some personal stuff.


We’re a husband and wife team based in St. Louis, MO (but we like to fly south for the winter).

In our free time we enjoy eating chips and dips of all varieties, listening to music too loud, and looking at dachshunds on Instagram. 

Our biggest dream was / is to run our own location-independent business and nothing charges our batteries more than supporting other entrepreneurs reach their goals.

That’s Us. now it’s your turn.


Don’t Take it from us:

 We don’t do cookie cutter.


Got something else in mind? We like to think outside the box too. We love working on custom projects like illustrations, packaging, festival posters, event promotion, editorial design, social media marketing, and more. If you have a creative project in mind, we would love to hear about it.
