Building your brand
Your brand is the culmination of the collective experiences of your customers, prospects, suppliers and partners. It’s the connection your audiences have with your organisation. It’s the emotional response you evoke in them. Building and managing a great brand is what sets you apart from your competitors.
A trusted team
We’ve worked with clients to design, develop, maintain and refresh their brands for over two decades. They trust us to deliver on strategy, identity and brand campaign work. We work as a unified team, bringing experts from every discipline to deliver a stellar set of brand services.
Our approach to brand
Crafting a truly great brand requires a good mix of strategic research and insight, coupled with the creative freedom to interpret and iterate a unique, ownable sense of who you are and what you stand for. We combine the best of both worlds in our approach to brand work.
A strategic foundation
No one should make decisions blind, especially not when they’re as important as your brand proposition or wider identity. That’s why we root everything we do in a bedrock of solid strategic understanding. Our strategists work closely with you, your team, your customers and your prospective audiences in order to truly understand your brand. By combining this with competitor and market research, we can create a purposeful, actionable strategy to get your brand to where you want it to be.
A crafted identity
Our brand design team has significant experience of delivering truly unique brand identity work for all kinds of organisations. Whether you feel a refresh is in order, or a total overhaul, we can meet your needs. By using your brand strategy as our foundation, we can design and develop the perfect-fit identity, all with an open, collaborative approach. We can then help to codify your brand into an easy-to-use document so that your identity can be rolled out across multiple touchpoints, both consistently and to a high standard.
Activating your brand
Once your identity has been carefully crafted and enshrined in your guidelines, you’re ready to start introducing it to the world. We can help by providing a dedicated team, or support your existing team, to create everything you need to reach your audience.
Awareness is everything
Obviously, prospective customers won’t buy from you if they don’t know you exist. And not every prospect is in market for your product or services. So brand awareness is key to driving long-term by giving you ‘top-of-mind’ status. We can help you achieve this by creating, implementing and managing creative brand awareness campaigns designed to put you in the right space, ready for the right time.

Frequently asked questions
Why should I care about branding?
Branding is what elevates your products or services above a simple commodity. It means you won’t have to compete solely on things like price or convenience. Your brand is the sum of every experience your customers have with your organisation, so should be considered throughout everything that you do, all stemming from your brand strategy.
What’s the difference between brand strategy and brand identity?
Your Brand Strategy will set out a series of recommendations based on extensive research of your market, your competitors, your own team, your existing customers and new prospects. By using your Brand Strategy as our foundation, we can then help you craft a visual Brand Identity that best suits who you are, what values you hold dear and what you have to offer your customers.
I already have a brand, can you help me?
Of course. Sometimes your brand may need a little fine-tuning in the form of a brand refresh, or sometimes it may need more of an overhaul in the form of a rebrand. Either way, our brand experts can help find the right level of change based on your objectives and current performance.
How do I know if my current brand is fit for purpose?
If you’re not sure how your brand stacks up against your intentions and objectives, and your competitors, we offer an audit service that’s like an MOT for your brand. We’ll speak to your staff, your customers and your prospects to get their perspective. We’ll also run a heuristic analysis of you and a handful of competing brands to see how you compare. Finally, our expert creative team will review your visual identity. All of this will be presented to you, along with our key insights and recommendations for the future.
