Creative Brand Platform Development for owners who need to get their companies to the next level and have neither the time nor the budget to spend months and months getting to a solution that we know, by experience, can be achieved in weeks and can deliver for years.
Discuss where you and your business are aiming to get to.
Decide from a series of options which creative route to take.
Deliver an agreed suite of brand assets enabling you to get there.
We begin with questions. We’ve got plenty (See below) but you’ll soon start coming up with more of your own – The more searching, the more fruitful the discussion.
Who do you think you are? Why did you create your business? What do you offer? What do you stand for? Where are you headed? What’s your next business goal? … and the one after that? What’s in your way? Who do you think you’re talking to (To get there)? Your business audience? Your consumer audience? Which comes first? How have you been talking to them so far? Then…
…We’ll come back with some options. That will be a mix of manifestos, ideas, endlines, and key visuals. Don’t worry. Our process is designed to make sure broad areas are covered. All founded in the truths of your company – as we’ve discussed.
The important thing here is that we talk about everything. And get to decide on next steps/which truths are most relevant and important. We often find that at this stage we’ll be taking a little bit of this one and mixing it with one of the others. That’s fine… It’s a nuanced business, and in reality, you’ll know what feels right.
But this is process of elimination and we all have to be prepared to let go of some previously precious ideas.
This part is straightforward, as the variables will have been removed at this stage and we’re delivering what’s been agreed.
Importantly, this shouldn’t be when people start to think seriously for the first time about things, just because suddenly they’re all looking fully designed and finished.
We deliver a suite of ideas and assets based on which media contact points are most relevant to your immediate needs and ambitions, as already agreed.
Discuss. Decide. Deliver. Deferred.
We’re about giving more start-ups and growth companies the opportunity to get their comms in line with their aspirations at an earlier stage – when money is a consideration.
With efficiencies and without overheads, we can offer our services at a fraction of the cost. We have a standard fee (available on request). We provide top London agency creative expertise that has been honed through experience working with businesses who are on their way up.
Also as standard we offer deferred payment of fees – where money conscious start-ups can spread the cost by only paying an initial 50%.
Here’s how it works…
FEE OPTION 1 – Standard terms.
50% of the standard fee to be paid prior to the commencement of ‘Discuss’. With the remaining 50% to be paid on fulfilment of ‘Deliver’. Full copyright and usage of ideas is transferred to Client following the receipt of 100% of the fee.
FEE OPTION 2 – Partial deferred payment terms.
50% of the standard fee to be paid prior to commencement of ‘Discuss’. With a second payment of the remainder plus 25% to be paid on the expiry of 6 months from the date of ‘Deliver’. During the 6 months, Client will have the licensed use of all copyrights and ideas within ‘Discuss’ ‘Decide’ and ‘Deliver’, but not thereafter, unless the balance plus 25% is paid in full. At that point, full copyright and usage of ideas is transferred to the client.
There is also no long-term financial commitment. After ‘Deliver’ you have the tools you need to conduct all your day-to-day comms in-house using your own resources.
