Building brands that stand out

Brands have been created the same way for decades and – to be quite honest – we don't think that's always such a good thing. Most people will first engage with your brand on a phone or tablet screen, rather than a letterhead or shop-front.

So instead of creating an offline brand a crowbarring it into a Twitter avatar, we start working on your brand in the digital sphere first – the end result is a future-proofed brand that works hard, wherever people see it.

Brand Identity

Imperial College London - Dyson School of Design Engineering Brand

Get noticed for the right reasons

What makes you stand out? Find the answer and you've taken the first step towards creating a brand that works for you. We can help you distill what you're about and get it across to the people who matter. That means making sure your messaging and design work together as perfectly Statler & Waldorf – making you a magnet for the audiences you're after.

  • Strategy

    Before getting down to the nuts and bolts of your brand it's important to step back and look at the big picture. We'll help you get things into perspective, identify your long-term goals and devise a roadmap to get you smoothly to your destination.

    • Nailing down your purpose
    • Achieving consistency
    • Making it emotive
    • Being flexible
    • Cultivating loyalty
    • Clocking the competition
  • Messaging

    If you want to be heard it's not just what you say that's important, it's how you say it. We pride ourselves on our pitch perfect communications – so turn to us to tidy up your messaging. We'll make sure your tone of voice is distinctive, appropriate and chimes with your audience and your identity.

    • Expressing personality
    • Reflecting values
    • Standing out
    • Being persuasive
    • Speaking to your audience
  • Identity

    If your brand is up to scratch it will reflect your organisation's values and ideas, while sparking the emotion and response you want from the people you're communicating with. If you're experiencing an identity crisis we can help you establish who you are and how to harness it for real competitive cut through.

    • Getting to grips with your goals
    • Identifying your personality
    • Developing your look and feel
    • Establishing your tone of voice
