Phase 1

Branding Strategy

Know thy audience. And have a plan to reach them. We start every project by building a solid foundation of research to support your success.

With a deep understanding of your offerings, your team’s lived values and culture, and the people you most want to reach, we build your brand confidently: delivering creativity that hits the mark, illuminated by a strategy that’s rational, focused, and smart.

Your brand’s visual and messaging elements should tell your story at a glance, resonate with the people you need to reach, and advance your goals.

Based on the research we perform and the strategic insights we uncover in phase 1, we’ll develop a toolkit of visual and messaging elements that truly encapsulate your identity, communicating your best to your target audiences in ways that matter to them.
