From the Ground Up
Back to the basics. The first step in building a successful brand system is to gather information and develop a strong communication. Many things need to be taken into consideration before the look and feel of your company is created. This first step is actually the most important one, as it creates a solid understanding of your incredible company, who your targeted audience is, and how you can best serve your customers. We work with you individually or with your executive team to get bottom line results for your brand.
Katie’s workshop utilize some of the best brand strategy techniques from top international branding and design companies around the world.
Katie starts by looking at your brand and where it stands against your competitors and the marketplace. Through this research Katie helps to develop your brand’s Purpose, Idea, Belief, and Inspiration (*Utilizing the Brand Driver ® Platform Technique designed by world renowned company, Landor). Rounding out this process, Katie finishse with your ‘Why’ statement. Your why is what shapes your company’s culture and builds a solid foundation for your entire team members to stand on.
Now that you have a firm foundation for your company’s brand to stand on, Katie next begins to tackle your brand’s Mission Statement, Core Values, and Company Culture. This is where your company stands out from the rest. Katie looks at your target audience and help define your communication to reach that market for your business to succeed.
Last but certainly not least is putting all these beautiful pieces together. Katie creates your individualized brand strategy document and work on the next steps for building your brand assets that will most benefit your company’s needs. Company’s brand assets are not all identical. Each one is as unique as a fingerprint and complex as the human system.
