Brand Identity Creation

Brand Identity Creation

A strong brand is not just a logo. It’s a positioning for competitive advantage. Your brand defends against commoditization and helps you dominate in your market category.

The goal of a Brand Strategy Roadmap is to make your company more valuable to customers, employees, and investors. Our approach is practical, hands-on, and backed up by research.

Our methodology facilitates discussions and achieves consensus among stakeholders. Workshops, market research, and interviews conducted by an objective third-party are often exactly what’s needed to motivate an organization to re-think their brand.

If your business is new or if you feel your brand needs renewal, let us work with you to create a brand that’s irreplaceable and irresistible to your market.

How Does a Brand Strategy Roadmap Work?

A Brand Strategy Roadmap can take from one to two months. This is a highly-customized engagement; we don’t use ‘canned’ content. We develop workshop content and deliverables based on information specific to your situation. We make sure we cover issues relevant to your company, customers, positioning, and customer experience before we work on brand development. Outcomes from this engagement depend heavily on timely feedback from stakeholders.

Your Company

Preliminary industry research, workshop, and interviews focus on your company’s brand vision, mission, and values. We audit existing marketing collaterals. The questions we bring to the table at this stage often lead to productive internal discussions.
