What it does

Commercially driven designs elevate your sales

Good brand design gets you noticed, brilliant brand design brings your brand to life, building an emotional connection with those who matter the most. Otherwise, you are just another brand in a world of competitors – struggling to make your mark.

Brand identities evolve. What was right a few years ago might not be right now.

We dig a little deeper than most and get to the heart of your brand – who you are, what you stand for, what makes you different, and why should people care – in order to create designs that reflect your values and takes your brand to the next level.

What they say

The team at Urban Element were great at bringing together many very different ideas on what the visual identity of the business should or could be, and uniting us around a global option that works well for our existing business and that will serve us well as we grow in the future.

A strategic process

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 and 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.

Logo design

First impressions are important, and for many potential customers, your logo will provide an 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 build brand identity and purpose.

Effective brand messaging

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 are a lot of factors that are wrapped up in brand messaging, including:

  • Value proposition
  • Key differentiators
  • Brand principles
  • Organisational culture
  • Target audience
  • Product positioning

Our team of branding experts works closely with you to create the most effective brand messaging for your marketing campaigns.

Brand positioning

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 uses 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.

Brand voice

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 touchpoints builds understanding, empathy, and loyalty among 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.

Brand guidelines

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 they say

We've worked with Urban Element for over five years now, and found them to be a very responsive company with impressive design values and an excellent understanding of client requirements.
