Your brand is how people recognise your business, so in an ever-crowded marketplace it has become even more important that you stand out in the right way. A good brand should communicate who your business is, what you do and how you do it. It should be unique to your business, a fingerprint that runs through all of your business and its communications.

The Process

We have a tried and tested method for developing brands that starts by getting under the skin of your business and results in a differentiated brand that builds loyalty and drives a return on investment.

Discovery, Research & Strategy

We spend time getting to know a business and its objectives. This is an incredibly important step as it’s essential that the brand suits the business itself. We also look at competitor brands and similar industries to ensure your business stands out against the crowd.

Creative Options

Our merry band of creative grafters work up a handful of soft options to be presented to the client for feedback and comments. It’s not expected that the final design will be chosen here, but that we will gain a clear idea of what it needs to be based on feedback received

Final Design

With feedback from the client in place, work commences to complete a finalised design based on the option that’s chosen. At this stage, there is still chance for feedback and amends, but we should be working towards a finished brand identity.

Brand Guidelines

Brand guidelines are essentially a set of rules and guidance that help designers to ensure that your brand is always spot on. Especially useful if you think you will have multiple designers working on collateral for your brand. Workhouse can supply a comprehensive brand guideline document that will help your business to remain on brand for years to come.

Tone of Voice

Your brand is so much more than the way it looks. It’s also about the tone you use and your unique voice. The key is to communicate in a consistent voice that people might recognise even without the visual aspects of your brand. Our copywriting team are experienced in developing unique brand voices that suit our clients.
