A process tailor-made for ambitious fast-growing companies
Don’t believe us? Ask our clients. The companies we work with love us for our process: decisive, professional and quick. They value our approach: that branding for tech companies should be treated as a product. This means merging client and agency teams into one uber-focused, collaborative crew. Doing weekly, or even daily check-ins to get the ball rolling fast. We bank on the latest insights to learn on the go.
Our lean approach goes hand-in-hand with the storytelling side of branding. We believe this aspect is essential for tech brands, they are often challenged to make their high-tech innovations, low-key digestible and impactful. That’s why we help strengthen companies by digging deep until we find their true nature and help them to put their best foot forward by putting their brand values and vision into words. Our clients find that these brand stories are “‘part and parcel of everything they do”. The brand stories bring focus into marketing efforts: from Tone of Voice and Messaging Frameworks, to targeting the right audience and creating a consistent look and feel throughout campaigns. The only way to build a community and turn fans into brand ambassadors is by involving them in your bold brand vision.
A team that knows business (and means it too!)
We have a multi-disciplinary team that's been working together for years. We've worked with some of the world’s fastest growing brands in categories from Fortune 500’s to SaaS, from B2B to Financial services and from Fintech to MarTech and Cultural institutions. If you're a brand looking to grow fast and attract great people, we're the place.
We’re also the team that took home the title of European Agency of the Year at the European Design Awards. Twice.
How is your brand perceived in your audience’s minds? What are the first words or visions that pop into their brains when your brand is mentioned? Positioning is a great starting point to begin the journey to a new Brand Strategy. Besides looking into the minds of your audience, and formulating their needs and preferences, positioning is also about planting your flag in the playing field your company operates in.
Positioning is about deciding how you want to differentiate your brand. In which way you want your brand to be distinctive.
Brand naming or renaming
Living brands are adaptable to their changing surroundings. This can ultimately mean also changing your brand name. For instance, renaming to make your brand better suited to venture into new markets. Or it could simply be that you outgrew your current brand name.
We do naming in-house, so we can move fast. But we also work closely with the world’s leading branding agencies: Globrands, Reed Words and A hundred Monkey's. What the best solution is for your company depends on your specific challenges. The experienced naming agencies we work with of course, take care of all necessary legal checks.
Our experience in brand naming allows us to quickly assess which process will help you best. Some successful naming trajectories in which we where involved:
Living brands are leaders, who walk the talk, all day, every day.
Putting your branding into words
Let’s be honest. You already have personality. You are running an innovative, change-making company that’s out-competing the rest. All you need to do is put it into words. Words that ignite action, inspire and connect. That’s why we always start by defining your brand story. This all starts with us listening to you, and listening very well. Whether you know it or not, you already have a point of view on the world, a reason for doing what you do. And we know how to ask the right questions to uncover that story.
Our way of working involves merging your industry knowledge and our branding expertise into one dedicated team that knows exactly what you need, and has the power to deliver it.
