Ongoing customers and employee satisfaction surveys

We advocate a collaborative approach and will work with you to debate and define a solution to your brand challenge. After all, it is your brand, not ours, so the ideas and ambitions of your people must be at the heart of the process.

Stage 1 – Brand research

We help you to understand people’s current perceptions of the business and brand, taking into account both internal and external audiences.  We get everyone on the same page, so we can agree on what needs to change.

Stage 2 – Brand strategy

We facilitate the high level discussion with your leadership team so you can align your business and brand strategies.

We then articulate this back, so you have a compelling story to tell backed up by a strong messaging platform. We resolve the brand architecture and any naming issues.

Stage 3 – Brand identity

We bring the strategy to life with a distinctive look and feel across your communications, physical spaces and brand experiences. This may include an update to your basic corporate identity.

Stage 4 – Brand planning

We help you to plan internal and external communications that will inform, engage and inspire your key audiences.

We maximise the impact and integration of different channels.

Stage 5 – Brand activation

We deliver specific design projects to clearly defined briefs, timetables and budgets.

Stage 6 – Brand management

We help you put in place the systems and processes that will support the brand long-term and add value to the business.
