It’s important to the success of your branding project that we gather all of the relevant information, including your target audience, your goals and the challenges you face.

Planning phase

Based on the information we gathered from our initial meetings, we’ll now begin to plan what needs to be produced and how your identity project will be delivered. This may simply be the production of a suite of stationery or may involve an integrated launch of print collateral, direct mail, e-shots and website. Every project is unique and we tailor our approach to suit your needs.

We will then produce a document detailing exactly what your design project will involve and setting out realistic timescales, responsibilities, target dates, objectives and goals. This document will allow us to carefully manage the various elements of the design and production, ensuring a successful outcome.
