WELCOME TO THE ASMARA AGENCY

The Asmara Agency is a boutique branding and marketing micro-agency that serves entrepreneurs looking to build their brands, impact, and profit through intentional strategy and stunning design. We believe that business at its core is about relationships and serving people well. We infuse that philosophy into everything we do and strive to create an innovative, creative, and generous environment for our clients to thrive in!

impact

We believe that business is about more than making a profit. It's about being able to impact people with your story and the unique gifts you bring to the world.

01

generosity

Being generous is a part of our growth strategy and everyday life. We believe that in order to receive you must first give and give generously. 

02

creativity

We approach everything in our business with creativity and curiosity. We are comfortable stepping out of the box and thinking about things in new and out of the box ways. 

03

sustainability

We don't only want to build things that are trendy or working in the moment. We are committed to building (and helping our clients build) things that are sustainable in the long-term so that we leave legacies behind. 

04

relationships

At the heart and soul of what we do are people. We have a deep love for people and the relationships we have built. Our business grew on the shoulders of the incredible people who came alongside us on this journey. After all is said and done people are what matter most. 

05

innovation

We are disrupters, world changers, and change makers. We believe that life and business are in constant evolution and we strive to match that in our work. The core of why we do what we do and who we do it for will never change, but the way we do things will. We want to innovate and find better and more effective ways to serve our clients and the world. 

06

thoughtful experiences

Whether its in branding (creating a really personalized client journey) or life (giving gifts) we are big fans of thoughtful experiences. We think this is one of the best ways to show people you care about them and we love infusing this into our work, life, and relationships.

07

Entrepreneurship

We are deeply passionate about entrepreneurship and what it means for us and the clients we work with. Entrepreneurship is the ultimate form of freedom (at least to us) and we are fiercely committed to helping those who want to pursue this path succeed in it. 

08

fun

We love to have fun! If fun could be our middle name it would be. We are serious about the work we do and results we get our clients, but in between all that strategizing and creating we are having fun and making sure our clients are too. We believe wholeheartedly in living this one life well and enjoying it to the fullest. 

09

our core values

WHO'S ON OUR TEAM?

We are a team of highly skilled and innovative thinkers and doers. As a micro-agency we bring on only the people who need to be on your project. This means that we can give you an agency level experience without the bloat of a traditional agency. Your experience with us is personalized yet robust at the same time!

Danait berhe

If there's anyone who truly lives at the intersection of multiple worlds, it's me.  Hi there! I'm Danait (pronounced da-night) and I'm the Founder & Principal Designer here at the HVC agency.  

The living in 2 worlds thing began early on when my family immigrated to the U.S.A. I quickly had to learn to navigate 2 cultures and 2 languages which taught me how to see the world through multiple perspectives and points of view and is a vital part of my process as a designer and a strategist today. 

I always thought I'd become a doctor so I got my degree in Biochemistry (Chemistry Concentration) and minors in Accounting & Psychology, but looking back I can see now that becoming an entrepreneur was always in the cards. 

 + I started my very first profitable business with employees in the 6th grade selling custom designed bookmarks to my classmate (ask me about the time I negotiated with my principal at 12 years old).
+ I was the first place winner at college business competition where we had to create a business and marketing plan for a brand new business when I was a Junior in high school.
+ I have close to a decades' experience working in marketing and visual merchandising  for brands like Aerie and Loft. 

If you can't already tell I've always been really passionate about entrepreneurship and building businesses. To me it was the ultimate way to create impact in this world while building a life and legacy that I could be proud of.

I realized that not a lot of entrepreneurs had the ability to see the world like I do- living on the edges of both creativity and analytical thinking. I saw so many of these entrepreneurs falling short of their goals and struggling to reverse engineer the success they wanted in their business. And so Heart & Vine Creative was born. Since its inception we've been able to serve hundreds of entrepreneurs and get them real results that allow them to build a profitable and impactful business that aligns with their legacy!
