  • Description
    A branding project starts with the development of your brand strategy or BATTLE TACTICS.

    This stage is all about putting the fundamentals in place and getting to know each other. During a SPARK-session, we get to know the ins and outs of your brand. It involves exploratory discussions to establish the brand’s framework and intelligent questioning to clarify the objectives of your brand. We look and listen to everything happened and happening within your brand. This knowledge serves as the foundation from which a remarkable brand grows. We gain deep insights into your business by examining the competitive landscape and research the target audience. We turn our findings into smart battle tactics as brand personas, a brand positioning and brand promise.

    - Induction meeting:
    The induction meeting is intended to get to know each other. We are being fully immersed in the world of your brand and business.

    - SPARK session
    A workshop where we uncover the core of your brand and detect its opportunities.

    - Stakeholder interviews
    By using a pre-developed interview questionnaire, we conducts a series of similar conversations across a range of company stakeholders. This results in valuable insights that indicate areas of alignment, strengths, challenges, opportunities, and threats.

    - Brand personas
    We develop a realistic representation of your target audience. We get a clear idea of who your brand speaks to and what they expect from you. Based on your brand personas, we can define relevant and targeted messages aligned with their needs/challenges.

    - Brand positioning
    Find a way to differentiate your brand from its competitors. Stand out among the others and convince your target audience to connect with your brand.

    - Brand promise
    It’s you, telling your customers what they can expect when they purchase your products or services.

    Once the Battle Tactics are defined, we can start on the BRAND DEVELOPMENT.

    In this stage, we get creative with all the things we’ve learned. We give free rein to our creativity and start (re)developing your brand. Following few rules, we make, build, shape and craft a visual world accompanied by a powerful brand story, aligned with the core values of your brand. Once we’ve built your complete brand identity, we translate your new world into an activating campaign concept.

    - Brand name
    A name turns a product or service into a brand. It needs to stick in the minds of your target audience. If you don’t have one yet, we will find one for you. One that’s original and not yet taken.

    - Brand concept
    The simple, bold idea that serves as the fundamental basis for your brand. It should make sense immediately, resonate with your customers, and engage your audience to learn more. The brand concept informs your tagline, in addition to the visual tone of your corporate identity.

    - Brand manifesto
    We turn your values into an inspiring brand manifesto. A story that reflects the core of your business.

    - Visual identity
    We develop an authentic aesthetic that instantly communicates the tone of your brand. From typeface to imagery, color to hue, we consider several visual directions that are cohesive with your tone of voice and overall brand concept.

    - Tone of voice
    We develop a dictionary for your brand, filled with words that only your brand can use. It’s not only about what you say, but also the way you say it, and the impression it makes on everyone in your audience who reads or hears you.

    - Campaign concept
    To activate your brand into the market and to inspire your target audience to take action, we need to develop a campaign concept.

  • Description
    The brand's ambitions need to be translated into a communication plan. This plan defines what to do first by putting every step into a detailed timeline. Together we define which target group you want to reach. By defining smart communication mechanics, we are sure to reach the right people, through the right channels at the best time, with a remarkable message. We clearly define: what’s in it for them. In order to guarantee an optimal brand coverage, we make a recommendation for the right media mix, accompanied by a content plan.

    1. Phase mapping
    We start by mapping out all the phases of the plan. We decide when to communicate to which target audience. All the different phases are being visualized in a timeline.

    2. Target audience
    For each phase we define all target groups we need to reach/influence.

    3. Message framework
    A message framework indicates the message we want to communicate to all different target groups in each different phase.

    4. Communication mechanics
    Once we’ve made all the strategic decisions, we need to activate the brand to our target audience. We come up with different creative ideas to ensure your brand gets the required attention.

    5. Media plan
    A media plan is the process of identifying and selecting media outlets, aligned with the media used by your target audience .

    6. Content plan
    A content plan will assist you in setting and programming the information that you will provide to your target audience. It is a schematic overview of which message you want to convey to which target group through which medium.

    Creation and execution
    This stage will turn strategy and concept into practice. We turn your visual identity and your tone of voice into your brand book (how cool does that sound?). It serves as a playbook to how your brand is presented to the world, ensuring brand recognition across all platforms. Now it’s time to bring your brand to life and create deliverables which you can really implement.There is nothing creative we can’t do. Online or offline? We create and produce content for every environment. Besides an ongoing presence of your brand, we can also help you develop a campaign, which helps you to boost your business.

    1. Brand book
    We create a brand book that serves as a guideline for all future branded communication. This reference ensures a united brand identity across all platforms.

    2. Creative concept
    It’s the big idea that captures audience interest, influences their emotional response and inspires them to take action. It’s a unifying theme that can be used across all campaign messages, calls to action, communication channels and audiences.

    3. Content creation
    You need a lot of content to stay relevant. Content to get your story out to the world. Content can take many forms today.

    4. Campaign production
    We create what you need to activate your brand in the form of a website, social media campaign, video animation….Whatever we think you will need to get noticed by your target audience.

    Campaign management and reporting

    This stage stands for constantly monitoring your brand. The discipline of deadlines and budgets makes sure our creativity fulfills its purpose. Once your campaign has been rolled out, the real deal starts. We take a close look at numbers and analysis to make sure every effort achieves its objective. We look critically at our own work and we adjust when something is not working (we’re not that stubborn). We strive to make our work, work, for your business to grow and to make your people behind the brand proud.

    1. Planning execution
    Mapping out what media outlets will be launched in what timing, based on the available media budget.

    2. Campaign rollout

    5. Content optimalisation
    Finetuning the planning of each media outlet in regards to timing, media budget, target group, …

    6. Reporting
    Campaigning is only as effective as it’s reporting. By monitoring our campaign closely, we’re able to deliver a detailed report on a regular basis of the results of each media outlet and finetune where necessary to reach our goals.
