How I work with brands and create a visual identity
We become a member of your team with the goal to uncover things you don’t even know, you don’t know, about yourself.
- Initial Meeting. We dedicate one hour with you to get a high level understanding of your business, it’s challenges, goals and values. You also get the chance to ask questions to make sure we are the right fit for your business.
- Project Proposal. Providing you with a price estimate and timeline.
- Briefing. A series of questions to get to the core of who you are and what you do. This is an essential step in our creative process, the more time and thought given to the answers at this stage directly affects the outcomes for your business.

- Mood-board. Setting the right mood, tone of voice, the business’ culture and values. This step helps to visualise and give creative direction to your thoughts presented in the brief.
- Sketching and setting the key visual messaging. With the chosen mood in mind we set out designing the logo. We provide you with three unique ideas to choose from. We often work with quick hand drawn sketches, which provide flexibility for change and help to focus on the concept rather than it’s execution.
