I already have a logo, why do I need a brand strategy?

Your brand is much more than your logo, your name or even a slogan. It is the entire experience your customers and potential customers have with your business, product or service.

Your brand strategy defines what you stand for, a promise you make, and the personality you convey, and determines how your employees will interact with customers. 

A brand strategy is both a road map and a compass to guide your business to its objectives.


I don’t have a logo yet, should I sort that before starting on a brand strategy?

Definitely strategy-first.

Once you have a compelling brand strategy then a skilled and creative graphic designer can develop your brand identity, through colour, fonts and other visual elements that match your business’s personality and bring your brand story to life.


My business is part of a franchise, can I still benefit from a brand strategy?

Regional communities often have a preference for dealing with local businesses and this preference has become more entrenched as a result of the pandemic.

We work with local franchise owners to help communicate their local identity as local employers, their engagement and contribution to community, while highlighting the benefits their franchise has to offer.

We can help you stand out of the crowd locally while still ensuring fit with the businesses overarching franchise brand, as well as compliance with their visual identity requirements.
