Our Process

 

We are curious by nature. We start by trying to understand the purpose of a company through research and interviews. We then define the brand and build a strategic foundation that aligns with the overall vision for the company. We ask questions, uncover hidden gems and challenge your thoughts before we can provide a fitting solution for your problem. In a world overloaded with information and messages, we use the power of design to cut through the noise and help your brand stand out.

 

From positioning to identity design —our approach ensures that every part of your brand is precisely what it should be. Every project is different. Nevertheless, we use the same framework for each project. A method that has proven itself in practice. It provides clarity, alignment, and control over the creative process, so our collaborative efforts lead to maximum results.
  1. DISCOVERY
  Exploration & Alignment
Let’s start digging! Before we can design, we need to explore. In this phase we look into the direction in which the brand should be moving. Discover and learn more about your business and culture. Strategy is essential for creating, developing and managing a brand. We hold workshops with clients in order to reach the right insights. We map out your brand values and goals and create alignment and focus for the whole team. It answers questions like: Who are you? What makes you special? Who are your customers and why should they care?
