Brand.

Beginning with market research, running stakeholder workshops and producing surveys, we use simple creative strategy to define the point of difference for your brand. We work on defining brand positioning, values and beliefs, brand essence, photography styling, name and identity and tone of voice. We’ll then bring your brand to life with a well thought out and innovative solution which will work across all media and deliver real commercial results. Finally we create brand guidelines and digital templates to enable you to take hold of the reins and make use of the brand assets.

Creative.

We consider your brand vision before even beginning to apply our creative skills to your project, so that the result is truly unique to your business. Whatever the form of communication, be it a digital campaign, a brochure, an exhibition, event or a promotional leaflet, we tell the story of brands in an innovative and compelling way, engaging both current and future customers. Whether it’s generating an innovative creative proposition for a campaign, or defining a unique tone of voice for your business, the final design will be meticulously crafted. And if it means commissioning a dynamic photographer or amazing illustrator to ensure the quality of the final design is second to none, then we have access to some of the best in the country.

Visual Language.

We discover the unique story, spirit and voice of your destination and elevate it with a cohesive visual language. Our in-depth research process enables us to find key insights into the history, spirit and essence of a destination. This is translated into a clear, unique visual language, communicated through guidelines incorporating any illustrations, icons and photography and rolled out across all relevant platforms, ensuring consistent and strong messaging. This creates a truly unique visual interpretation that captures the imagination and tells your story, so your visitor is inspired and engaged from the moment they arrive.

Experience.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to customer experience, wayfinding and signage. We’ve produced signing schemes for entire ports and liveries for ships! Your brand doesn’t just live on printed pages or online, it should extend to your business environment. Ensuring customers have a positive experience navigating through your destination is key to the success of a business. We create signage and wayfinding schemes that are simple to use and easy to navigate. Importantly our interpretations tell your brand story in a breathtaking and vibrant way.
