OUR PROCESS

All our projects begin with developing an understanding of you, your business, competitors, marketplace and most importantly your target audience. Our 5 step process ensures that the right brand elements are selected for every consumer touch point, helping you to establish credibility and audience trust.

Identify elements needed.

Step two is quite important, we will identify many of the brand elements that you will potentially require for your brand journey.

Your brand elements may include items such as:

  • Name;
  • Logo;
  • Colours;
  • Image;
  • Tone;
  • Slogan;
  • Character / Spokesperson.

Build the Brand Strategy.

Next we build your brand strategy. We identify how the elements will work together working towards developing the type of tone and imagery that will make you pop!

At this stage you will see:

  • A response brief – just to make sure so that we are all on the same page!
  • Determination of brand attributes, pillars, positioning, mantra and building blocks and more.

Design concepts to client.

Then its onto our favourite part… Design. We will develop and present you with concepts that are appealing and functional, ensuring your message is audience savvy.

If your design is cross-platform with relevance to Graphic Design, we will show you how they will translate across various mediums be that from print to digital. Once we have an approved concept and designs, we’ll look to moving to Step Four.

Deliver to client or launch.

Delivery is exciting, it’s not to be thought of as the end of our journey together either! We look to develop everlasting, long-term relationships with you as our client, and helping your business and it’s brand grow to it’s full potential.

Delivery of your project will largely depend on its scope, however, it is important for you to know that we provide two options for delivery into your marketplace. And one of those options involves turn-key solutions where we will launch your brand or product on your behalf.
