We employ a thorough strategic process for brand development. This guarantees that your new brand works both as a tool to engage with your ideal clients but as a tool to help you achieve your business objectives.
It all starts with a half day of consultancy in our offices, just outside Oxford, to help us get to grips with your business goals and to understand who your ideal clients are.
First impressions are important, and for many potential customers, your logo will provide the initial glimpse of your brand. A company logo is essentially the face of the organisation, and it should tell prospective customers everything they need to know about your business right up front.
Our branding team design logos that support your business goals by effectively engaging with your ideal customer to create brand awareness and to build brand identity and purpose.
Everything your company says should have meaning for your target audience. They should understand clearly how you help them and why they will benefit from buying from you.
There a lot of factors that are wrapped up in brand messaging, including:

Brand positioning is best summed up as how you set yourself apart from the competition. Having a clear brand position differentiates you from others and helps your target audience build empathy with and loyalty for your brand.
Our team of branding experts use a blend of market research and organisational analysis to determine the most effective brand position for your business and develop a strategy to implement that.
Brands are like people – they all have their own unique way of expressing themselves. Understanding what your brand voice is and applying it across all of your marketing touch points builds understanding, empathy and loyalty amongst your target audience.
Our team of branding experts thoroughly analyse your industry, customer base and company culture to determine what the right approach should be. We then help you put that into practice across all of your outward and inward facing communications.
Once we’ve helped you define your brand voice, we codify it so every employee and stakeholder understands what your brand position, messaging and tone of voice is and how to implement them. We do this by creating a comprehensive set of brand, or style, guidelines.
Our brand guidelines are much more than the font and colours of your logo. Often referred to as a branding bible, our brand guideline documents create detailed style guides so there’s never any confusion about how to best represent your business. They convey the ‘who’, ‘why’ and ‘what’ of your brand in a way that your wider team can really buy into.

What does brand design mean?
Brand design reflects how your brand looks and feels – how it portrays itself.

Why do I need a brand identity through visual design?
An impactful brand identity is a critical part of your brand success. It’s not just about a nice logo or a pretty brochure. It’s what your customers think and feel about you when they see your brand.
Your brand needs to be instantly recognisable and reflect your values as an organisation. It needs to work hard across all platforms so that if someone visits your website it compliments your products they have recently bought from a retailer, or your app they have recently opened, or the direct mail you recently sent – all of your marketing collateral needs to feel joined up and have a purpose from a design perspective, otherwise your marketing will always feel one dimensional.
Brand design evolves, what may have been right a few years, or even a few months ago, may not be right now.
