Let’s Tell Your Story
Our team of brand strategists combine business, marketing, communications, and design thinking to develop meaningful, differentiated, and authentic brands for companies big and small, start-ups or stalwarts. We don't just come up with what’s cool; we craft the message your customers want to hear and one that you can deliver on. We’ve seen firsthand how the power of brand can elevate a company from a commodity to a valued partner; how it can rescue a business from the trenches of an impossible-to-win price war, and how it can motivate employees and customers alike to become full-fledged fans. We develop the tools and show you how to use them. The rest is up to you.
Branding is about the promise of a distinct, memorable experience. It’s about creating an expectation and delivering it consistently every time anyone comes into contact with your brand whether it’s the way you answer the phone, how your website functions, your customer service process, how your office looks or how your product/service performs. It’s how you make your customers feel about themselves and their decisions when they are interacting with your brand. It’s why you shop at store A vs. store B even if the price or product might not be that much different.
Developing a strong, authentic brand and delivering it consistently is the foundation upon which every successful business is built. And we can help you lay that first stone. We’ll help uncover what makes you special, differentiates you from the competition and defines who you are and what you want to be, and what your target audience wants you to be. The development of this brand will be essential to consistently delivering the right message to the right people to create just the right reaction.
Scope of Services
The first step involves our team really getting to know your business, your industry, your competition and your customers. This involves meeting with your team, conducting some research, doing customer interviews and really drilling down to the core of how people see you now and how you want them to see you moving forward.
Once the discovery is complete, our team will develop a brand strategy unique to you. We’ll present what we feel the promise is that you need to communicate and suggest tactics for how it can be expressed throughout your business operations.
Once we’ve developed your brand strategy and you’ve approved this direction, our designers will move into interpreting your brand characteristics in a more visual way. A standard package includes:
Business card template
Once these steps are complete and you have signed off your approval, we’ll develop brand guidelines for you. This is your handbook for how to properly express your brand: where and how to use the logo, colours, fonts and just as importantly, how NOT to use them, in order to consistently communicate your message.
To complete the work outlined in the project scope, we'll need approximately 8 weeks from beginning to end, depending on when we receive feedback at each milestone. Upon signing the proposal we are prepared to start work immediately.
