Whether you’re just starting out or are realigning your business, strategically building your brand is a critical step to starting a successful brand. A brand strategy design helps you develop a blue print for your organisation to help you create a strong framework for your brand design and marketing to stand out in the marketplace. Developing a brand strategy will deliberately and clearly define your brand, which will in turn: enable you to communicate your message consistently and easily across all your graphic design marketing, help you become more recognisable to your audience, and provide the tools to distribute and align your brand internally across your team.

A visual brand identity is the visible representation of a brand, from the logo and colors to the website. It encompasses everything you can see in connection to a company. A brand’s visual identity is a powerful tool for telling a company’s story, building customer trust, and increasing revenue. We create stand-out logo design for small businesses and brand identities which resonate with your audience. We design brand identity systems which can work cohesively across a range of print and digital touchpoints. If you are looking for a branding agency that specialises in logo and brand identity design then gen in touch.

The success of your website greatly depends on its appearance. Having the right color combination and theme will keep your visitors on your site for a little longer. In addition to your site’s color palette and structure, the font you choose also plays an essential role in keeping your audience engaged.From wire-framing, to copy writing, custom design and development. We build custom websites tailored solely towards your business. We specialise in designing websites in WordPress. WordPress is a leading website builder and content management system. It powers over 40% of all websites on the internet. WordPress is designed with search engine optimisation (SEO) in mind, making it an ideal choice for those looking to improve their website’s visibility in search engine results.

If you’re planning to build a new website, we can provide expert guidance and support. Our expert web designers will help you take advantage of this powerful platform and create a website that meets your specific needs, is visually stunning, easy to use and grows your business.

We are an experienced graphic design agency in Auckland. Designing marketing communications that push boundaries and affect change. Whether you need a logo design, brochure design, a new responsive website or an advertising campaign, get in touch. We can express your brand in a constant manner across all media, with optimal communication to your target audience.

Brand photography is a suite of professional images that represent your business visually, and fit with your visual identity through their use of colours, tone, props, sets and more. These can include photos of you, your team, your products, your process, your space and other things that make your business unique.

Our process and approach is flexible and depends entirely on what needs done. That said, projects tend to include research, creative strategy, design, and implementation.

As a branding agency, we believe that the most important aspect of our job is to listen, to learn and to explore. At this stage we’ll go over our detailed branding questionnaire with you (and any stakeholders) to define your brand. As you build and promote your business, you’ll need clarity on what it should look and sound like. We’ll explore your vision, goals, audience, how you want them to feel, your company’s personality, unique strengths, positioning and more. Once we have a good understanding of your brand and your needs we’ll put together a design brief outlining the core details and expectations of the project.

The first step with brand design, is to create a brand strategy that will make you stand out from the crowd and give your business a unique identity. Just as an architect draws out a building plan before they start building, we need to develop a brand strategy for your business before we start working on any of your brand’s touch points like a logo or a website.

Whether you’re a brand new company or an existing brand with well-established customer loyalty, having a winning brand strategy is integral to sustainable business success. We will present your brand strategy in an easy to follow document. Your brand strategy may include the following: brand purpose and values, brand voice and tone, brand personality, clearly defined target audience and buyer persona, competitor analysis, brand position, brand personality and point of difference.

Once we have the brand strategy completed, we have a blue print for how the visual brand identity should look and feel. A brand identity is an intricate design system. Each element influences the other, but it always starts with your logo, colour palette and typography selection. Every brand’s needs are different, so your brand’s touch-points will be different too.
