our approach

Branding was about publicity, but we believe the future is about authenticity. Successful brands need to be built on purpose and value.

How

Thinking

Uncovering what’s essential about your business, what matters, what success means. Internal discussion to reach consensus, and external interrogation to achieve clarity. Exploring your values and ethical and environmental limitations, creating a succinct expression of your offer, and clarifying what you need audiences to understand.

Creating

Pinpointing the essence of your organisation as an entity and how it can be understood in terms of the roles it plays. Transforming this into a strategy to guide all design, story telling and choice of channels, and how this is expressed verbally and visually.

Doing

Developing a detailed communications plan and identifying the most effective on and offline channels, including social media, PR, ads and mailings. The production and activation of just the right collateral, in the right place, and at the right time, be it print, video or digital.

Authentic branding

Very few people and organisations can clearly articulate WHY they do what they do. WHY is your purpose, your cause or belief. It’s WHY you get out of bed in the morning, it’s WHY your company exists, and it’s WHY that should matter to anyone else.

Making money is NOT a WHY. Revenues, profits, salaries and other monetary measurements are simply results of WHAT you do. The WHY is what inspires you, and what will inspire everyone else.

In the right place at the right time people will share what inspires them. Authentic branding effects change because authentic brands are what people value and share. We’ve created our own brand building process based on these principles.
