THE STORY

If you know Austin Church you know that he is passionate about many things. One that has held true and risen to the top is writing. Over the last several years he has been working on a children’s book called, Grabbling. The story is one that his grandmother told him and his two sisters when they were young.

It's a true story—something that happened to his grandmother when she was a little girl, growing up on a farm in Fayetteville, Tennessee.

The story spans 32 pages of lush, colorful illustrations that send you into the world of Jeannie, her dad Julian, and another character who doesn’t show up until the very end.

THE CHALLENGE

Kent Mast is a filmmaker based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He got his start with wedding films, and he has worked as a visual storyteller for eight years. 

When the commercial side of his business began to eclipse weddings, Kent saw a need for a new website. He reached out to Balernum. We asked questions, looked under rocks, and realized that Kent’s needs went deeper than a new portfolio site.

His business goals had changed, and his branding and messaging were no longer relevant or attractive to the commercial clients he really wanted. At the same time, other media companies in Lancaster were putting out impressive work. Their brands had the sophistication and polish that Kent’s lacked.

Kent was good at telling other people’s stories but what about his own? He needed a strong brand and website to communicate the quality and artistry of his work.

I’d love for your children, your nieces and nephews, all of the rambunctious munchkins in your life, to go on a small adventure with Jeannie and to get the shiver at the end of the story that I always felt.

AUSTIN CHURCH - AUTHOR

"Everything changed after working with the guys at Balernum. Anytime I am asked big vision questions, I get nervous and shut down. I feel like I'm missing something, or I may say the wrong thing. Chris walked me through every stage of the process, and actually identified pivotal things that he saw, which tremendously helped me step into a full expression of our brand identity."
