understanding your requirements

project scope

The branding project begins with an in-depth discovery phase, where we get to know your business and define the key aims for your new brand.

We define the key objectives of your project and specify any required deliverables, such as brand guidelines, logos, font libraries, assets, and other content. We also assess your current brand (if you have one), examining its visual and messaging aspects, identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement. During this phase, we analyse your key competitors, their strengths and weaknesses and look at relevant market trends to ensure a comprehensive approach.

how to make you stand out

brand strategy

A strong brand foundation is built on a clear articulation of its unique positioning: the 'Who,' 'What,' and 'Why.'

We collaborate with you to articulate these essential aspects of your brand, distilling the essence of what drives your business and sets it apart. By clearly defining these elements, we can effectively communicate your core brand message in a way that resonates with your target audience. This understanding will guide all subsequent creative work, form messaging and tone of voice through to visual identity.

creating your visual identity

visual development

During the design phase, we develop your visual identity by using the findings from our scoping process to visually represent your core messaging. This may include logo design, image treatments, brand mechanics, photography, colour exploration and other visual elements that we will develop and refine into a cohesive, engaging brand identity.

At the end of this phase we will have a defined look and feel for your brand, that aligns with the brand strategy setting you apart from your competition.

brand guidelines

Once we have designed your visual identity, we articulate the outcome in a comprehensive brand guide. Your brand guide will be created to include and define every aspect of your brand, from typography, logo usage, imagery and colours through to the application of brand mechanics image treatments and the creation of marketing assets.

The brand guide serves as your brand's bible, ensuring consistent application across all design work, whether carried out by your in-house teams or third parties.
