If you’ve been experiencing any of these in your company, chances are
you don’t have a strong positioning in the market and are being perceived as a cheap brand.
Often when this happens business owners opt to lower their prices.
But that starts a race to the bottom, and nobody wins. Neither you nor your competitors.
Your competitors will lose business to you but you will not make ends meet anyway.
It could even drive you out of business.
Imagine you instead invested in your Brand and made it more desirable to find a stronger place in the market.
You focus on really describing the benefits. Add a strong tagline to your logo, create a
sexy-looking brand and some nice packaging.
You invest in your brand to make it look really slick. Analyse your target audience and create
different packaging flavours to service different industries. You create professionally branded slide decks for your
sales team. Throw in a nice recorded video demo of your product and start wowing your prospects.
You do this so well that you can increase your prices by 25% and buy that cool office slide
you saw on entrepreneur.com in a picture of the Google offices.
Now imagine you don’t do that and opt to keep a cheap brand and weak messaging,
people won’t aspire to buy from you, no matter how cheap you go.
Your LOGO is the simplest and most tangible reflection of the brand and needs to do a great job of being the core symbol
and message that introduces you in a way that instantly applies to
the kind of people you want to attract. It usually contains a visual symbol and a short message.
Your Brand’s IDENTITY is the image of your business, the collection of its visual touchpoints:
All of these things make up an identity and together support and deliver the brand.
The logo is your mark, the thumbprint of your business.
You can probably tell from our name, we love brands. We invest a lot of time and love into finding the right one for your business.
We believe that a brand is not just the expression of everything your business aspires to be, but it also carries the blueprint of the
entrepreneur that envisioned it. Before we embark onto the journey of creating your brand, we take the time to get to know you.
We ask about your story, your business’ journey and your company’s aspirations, its core values.
We want to know about your clients and your industry and especially inquire about the clients you aspire to win over in
the future or new industries you intend to break into. We leave no stone unturned to make sure we give you
the best set of Logo Identity options we possibly can so that you have plenty of choice and room to explore your personal taste.
We begin by brainstorming with you. We invite you for a real or digital coffee,
where you can sit back and simply answer our questions and explore ideas. We then move to the sketching phase where we explore different forms, shapes and colours.
We show you our best ones and move forward based on your feedback. At this stage, the brand starts taking shape and we add in the messaging.
Once you have given us feedback about the second stage we finalize the options and present you with mock-ups of what your
new business density will look like on a business card, website and letterhead. At this stage, we look at revisions and finishing touches.
We add imagery and develop your Brand book.
Et voila, you have a Brand that attacts like a sexy french model.
Our team provides an all-inclusive creative design services, beginning with the Logo identity, stationery and Brand Guidelines,
extending into Product Branding and Packaging, Brochure and Leaflet Design, Posters, Banners and any other form of print or digital design requirements.
