Luma was created to help you and your brand shine. The term Luma was inspired by and stems from the word luminous:
Luma Social is a boutique digital marketing and design company. Focusing on website development, graphic design, branding, and social media management. Our goal is to build, market, and empower small businesses- one brand at a time.
As the saying goes- find your people and love them hard. The presence your business has online can connect you with a greater audience. It is a space to share what you love and why you do what you do.
Here at Luma we love to work with entrepreneurs who are making waves in their communities and help them build these connections from a place of intention. Together we illuminate your brand.

WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
We will meet with you personally to learn about your business, story, and objectives. From these conversations - the design, layout and style of your website is created. Luma aims to keep it simple and easy for your clients to discover and navigate your online content keeping them engaged with your creative vision.
We take what you love, from colours to design, and develop it into a functioning website. Your social accounts and activity are linked to the website to ensure your content is fresh and ever expanding.
BRANDING & GRAPHIC DESIGN
Your brand speaks volumes. It is the strongest representation of your company and what you do. Luma creates memorable brand identities coupled with bespoke logos and a compelling visual design focused on the user experience. We work with you to find your vibe and create a cohesive, solid brand. We experiment with different colours, typography, and features to find your unique tone within the marketplace.
From brochures, reports, and posters, to social media imagery- your graphics all tell a story. We focus on what makes you extraordinary and the best at what you do. We create fresh, long lasting, and stand out graphics for all aspects of your business.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
Social media is a meaningful way to connect with a greater audience by sharing what you love. But just posting doesn't cut it - connection only happens through conversation. An active online presence is essential to that conversation, and social media is at the heart of it all.
Your friends, followers, and potential clients are interested in your "why." They are drawn in by the people, stories, and passion behind what you do so well. Social media has the power to inspire your audience and to cultivate a real, lasting connection.
We will lay a solid foundation for when, where, and how you should be active online. With creative and engaging content the opportunities for your small business are endless and the results lasting.
COPY WRITING & CONTENT CREATION
One thing is for sure- having an online presence is all about content, content, content. Do you know what you want to say, but have trouble saying it? We will work with you to create content for your website, social media platforms, and all the things in between. Let us hone your writing and tell a masterful story of your business through copy writing, content creation, and editing.
Content that inspires engagement and conversation is the content that gets noticed. Luma's customer focused content contains keywords and phrases targeted specifically for your business. This generates SEO, leads, shares, and then growth.
Here at Luma we love working both face-to-face and remotely.
Whether you are in Kelowna, B.C or beyond don't hesitate to reach out.
