When my brother and I decided to start a blog and I began researching how to build a website, I found Andrea “Dre” Beltrami and her Branded Solopreneur Society. After months of spinning my wheels trying to create the site, I decided I needed a professional with the skill and experience to build our site and brand right the first time. After taking a few of Dre’s mini-courses, I knew I needed a straight-shooting badass visual branding warrior named Dre.
Dre’s enthusiasm and responsiveness made this process not only painless, but downright fun! After a call to discuss our vision and our brand, I was able to turn my partially done site, and my scribbled diagrams over to her. After a few emails back and forth to go over samples and ideas, Dre came back with a logo and a website that brought our ideas to life. She made this a truly collaborative effort and far surpassed our expectations.
When I saw the finished products, I knew we would have to step up our content game to keep up with this design. I am so proud of the look and feel of our logo and website – Dre totally nailed it. As our blog and brand grow, there is no doubt who we will turn to when we need a badass in our corner. Dre is the best!

I hired Andrea Beltrami to redo my logo and website, and it was the best decision – I am so happy with the results! Andrea designed a logo that was in alignment with my brand promise. Then she completely overhauled my website promptly, professionally, efficiently and within a budget ideal for a startup founder and small business owner. Her communication style is outstanding, she addressed every question and concern right down to the last detail, and she made the whole process FUN. I highly recommend Andrea to anyone launching, branding and building a business.
We found Andrea “Dre” Beltrami of The Branded Solopreneur on social media and fell in love with her visual branding design sense and badassery. We immediately knew that she was the one to help us re-brand our business, BentoBox Media.
We needed a full rebrand including a new logo and new WordPress website. It was a huge undertaking that could have been painful, but Dre has a system and work style that made the entire process easy and a TON OF FUN. She created a brand that captures our spirit and helps us tell our story.
Visual storytelling is vital for anyone who wants to stand out online. If you want a brand that you’re madly in love with, like we are with our new brand, then we highly recommend that you work with Dre. She’s the REAL DEAL!

Working with Dre on my new brand was great. I never had to guess what was coming up or what kind of input she needed from me… she made it very easy to follow along with and always paid close attention to make sure what she was delivering was in line with my vision for my brand.
That, and everything is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. She sent over my new elements and the brand style board, and I couldn’t stop looking at them. I’m so excited to use them on my site.
I would absolutely recommend her work.
I approached Dre to create a brand/logo for my new business. I had researched a number of designers, but after reading several articles on Dre’s website, I was certain that she would be able to create a logo that symbolized my vision. From the start, I was particularly impressed with the thoroughness of the questions she asked concerning my wants and needs. She came back with a set of brilliant designs. I ultimately chose a design that was both eye catching, and perfectly captured all of the elements that I was wishing to portray. Dre is not only a pleasure to work with, but is such a talented designer. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for branding that will truly reflect who they are.
I loved working with Dre of the Branded Solopreneur. I’ve never created a brand identity or a logo so I knew I needed a lot of help. I’m so happy I found Dre. She was really easy to work with and explained all the branding components to me. She started with a questionnaire that really helped me to identify the key elements that I wanted to convey about my brand. Once that was complete, Dre created an amazing logo and helped me chose the right fonts and colors to bring everything together. My branding package is fantastic! Thanks Dre!
Well I have had the immense pleasure of working with Dre on rebranding myself and although I,m not all done, I just want to share with everyone what she has done for me. I have invested thousands of dollars in various online courses for business and in a one hour+ conversation, Dre made sense of my branding. I had not been able to find my way through the jungle and now I`m close to revealing my new look that she pulled out of me. She is like a magician pulling the rabbit out of the hat, we all know its in there but only she knows how to pull it out and make it look amazing, magical and beautiful. (I tried by myself and I killed the rabbit, lol) She is THE branding GODDESS. Hands down or … High Fives
As a new business, we encountered lots of trouble with working with consultants and designers and were overwhelmed with dealing with disappointments and inconsistencies while trying to develop our brand. After going through all the mini-courses and observing Dre, I realized she was the one who could take our hot mess and help us get our branding together!
After going through the branding refresh process and receiving a seamless look from our business cards, postcards to website header and blog image templates, we have a visual branding foundation to ensure brand recognition. We love our new biz cards, logos and variations, submarks, and blog image templates. I can’t say how awesome she is to work with, how keenly aware she is of how to bring the stuff in your head out and how to deliver it seamlessly AND in a timely fashion (which is a rarity among the designers). This is just the beginning! Thanks Dre for being such an awesome brand steward!
Andrea “Dre” Beltrami is one badass, and it works! She used her excellent graphic design and consultation skills to create a fantastic brand identity package for me that I am absolutely in love with. (Really, I can’t stop looking at my own website!). It perfectly projects the “edgy but clean” visual image that I want for Hub+company. Thanks to Dre I now have the flexibility and freedom to create brand-consistent collateral and social media images for every possible situation.
Working with Dre has been a pleasure. I am a creative person, so I started off trying to design my logo myself, which is how I stumbled across her website. She has great resources for those of us who are starting out and want to do things ourselves. However, I realized I was spending too much time trying to design my own logo, and that’s when I decided to hire her to design one for me.
I am SO happy with the final result. It is exactly what I envisioned, without the headaches of trying to achieve it. She involved me in every step of the way, sending me a few rounds of proofs with multiple, varied options. When I gave her feedback, she really listened to what I was saying and applied it to the design.
Her patience gave me the space to feel comfortable asking for changes. I’d never hired a designer before so it can feel a little strange letting someone else take the reigns, but I never felt uncomfortable telling her what I needed. Her lighthearted energy made it a really fun process. I highly recommend hiring Dre for your designing needs. Some things are better left to the pros! I look forward to working with her again in the future as my brand grows. Thank you Dre!
As a time management coach I KNOW the importance of outsourcing work that other people can do better than you.
When it came to branding of my website, the choice was easy – who other than Andrea?
She helped me with a brand new logo, submarks, social icons, colors and fonts on my website. Not only did she deliver HIGH QUALITY results, she also delivered it in RECORD TIME. In addition to her skillset, she is probably one of the coolest people I know online.
I like to develop and nurture long-term relationships, and Andrea has now become my AWESOME branding girl!
By the end of a mini-course taught by Andrea Beltrami, I knew I was going to hire her to help me with the visual branding for my blog and other marketing images. She is sassy and savvy, both qualities I like, and most importantly, Andrea is talented with a keen eye for what works. I hired her and immediately received feedback about what I wanted, what would work and what wouldn’t along with suggestions for how to improve my visuals all around. I appreciated that.
Andrea was quick to provide several variations for me to choose from, a video tutorial on how to use my new templates and delivered the final product on schedule. I love what she created for me and I recommend Andrea as a partner for helping you create a consistent branded look for your visuals.
I’m a complete idiot when it comes to design. Thankfully, people like me who are intimidated by it can turn to my mentor Dre for help in improving everything from your Pinterest board covers to creating blog post images, and much more.
I’m always impressed by Dre’s knowledge ( and wit) and don’t know what I’d do without her!

I came across Dre’s website when I was searching for branding for my blog, ever since I have been hooked on her articles and strategies. I love drooling over her portfolio and gawking at the amazing branding she’s created for her clients. I sooooo wanted to rebrand my blog with Dre, and jumped right in. What a fabulous experience it was. Dre understood exactly what I wanted for my brand and delivered it perfectly! And the whole rebranding was done quickly and efficiently. Thank you Dre, it was an awesome experience working with you! : )
A branding expert is far more than an artist. It is a visual storyteller that uses iconic symbols to convey the heart, emotion, and mission of an organization. Andrea Beltrami is one of those rare few that not only gets it, but who can combine artistic brilliance with creative vision to provide you with a platform upon which your story can be told beautifully.

I approached Andrea Beltrami, from The Branded Solopreneur, because I was lost when it came to logo design. Andrea helped me by drafting up a few logo ideas. I was very pleased with Andrea’s knowledge of visual branding. As such, I hired her to create my logo and watermark designs. One thing that I like about working with Andrea, is that she is professional and is readily available to answer questions that I have. I highly recommend Andrea Beltrami to any one who is looking for help with their visual branding needs.
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Andrea Beltrami when I hired her to design my logo for my new business. I found her to be personable, creative, and professional. When designing my logo, she gave me plenty of options, all of them based on my specific requirements and branding – yes, I created my own branding board based on the examples I found on Dre’s website – ahead of schedule.
I am very pleased with my logo and submarks. Dre is definitely my go-to designer for whenever I have a graphic design or branding need.
Dre has been my go to branding and graphic design resource for years. She’s so passionate it’s contagious and her ability to tap into your style, personality and passion is why she’s the only one I trust with my businesses visual content. She’s helped me bring my visions to life even though I’m never exactly sure what I want.

Dre’s teaching style is both valuable and unique because she makes it so extremely entertaining to learn about branding and design. I have never met anyone else who can provide so many “a-ha” moments while at the same time making me double over in laughter.

If you want to dominate branding and design the “right way”, then Dre is the one to go to. She’s so genuine in her design approach and training and always gives 110%, leaving nothing to guess or hiding behind the typical smoke screen of bull. Authentic and results-driven, she’s my kind of solopreneur. She’s got a fan for life in me!
Dre is the real deal. I’ve had dozens of private conversations with her- and it’s a breathe of fresh air to see someone who’s genuinely dedicated to helping people succeed. And I love her teaching style, it’s practical and free of the typical bullsh!t.
