Successful brands start with answers to the questions “Why?” and “How?”
During our brand strategy phase, our brand design agency will verify we all have a clear understanding of things like customers, culture, and competition. We will further define your competitive edge and crystallize your brand DNA in an outtake document that will guide all decisions moving forward. The GreyBox Creative team can help accomplish this by leading a brand discovery workshop that leverages the key individuals on your team, internal, and sometimes external resources if needed.
Our Customizable Approach
It’s our custom approach toward a brand strategy that allows us to address the specific needs of each client. We recognize there are several stages of a business’s life cycle and varying levels of progress in establishing a targeted brand strategy. In most cases, Greybox Creative will start with a brand discovery workshop that helps articulate the hierarchy of needs through brand development exercises, while defining your company, culture, and story while drawing your audience into your offering. The work often helps identify your unique role in the market landscape and helps to enrich it as a “jumping-oﬀ point” for a larger brand positioning while establishing key messaging and in some cases a tagline.
There are times when a more extensive deep dive is needed and we are able to lead additional brand strategy workshops for things like naming a company or product or a workshop that focuses on operational alignment. If needed, through our expert partners we are able to deliver quantitative and qualitative research to further inform and/or confirm assertions made during the initial discovery workshop. In cases like this, it requires a certain level of commitment of time and budget for this type of work since it often can take a month or two to complete before any creative work can begin.
In all cases, before we move to the conceptual design stage we make sure we deliver an approved outtake document that acts as our playbook or brand bible that informs and guides all executional work. This document makes sure we have a solid brand strategy established. In some cases, the brand strategy outtake document can help while making hiring decisions and establishing a company culture and values to verify organizational alignment between your employees and the aspirational brand that is being established.
