Brand Guidelines from ClearBrand

Define, design and activate your brand

Why We Rebrand?

Your brand is more than just a creative name, novel logo or complimentary card – it’s a promise of value.

Branding needs to be updated to reach new target audiences. Brand Guidelines can also aid target sector focus.

Brand builds a unique personality for a company, and is essential to the success of any venture.

Brands are one of the most
critical (intangible) assets a company owns.

Strong and consistent branding helps clarify what your business stands for – your purpose, your personality, and your promises. Brand Guidelines will help this.

Rebranding can be used to highlight a change in company direction, development and the services provided.

Where we add value

History of brand guideline campaigns, leading to our unique guidelines 6-step process.

We will capture and provide the emotive aspects of your audience into a cohesive narrative

Our global portfolio and client-base allow us to understand a range of organisations and setups.

Our geographic understanding of projects allows us to adapting the messages

We go over and above our clients requirements including our free brand audit process for reviewing current branding.

Our project management and processes ensure each stage is clear and structured (see image below)

Highlights:
Initial Concepts

In our initial research we will create an Our ‘ideas wall’ that shows competitor and peer communications, inspiration and potential visual direction.(see image left for close up). We explore imagery, typography, colour and graphic language to show how these elements can be combined into a distinct look and feel. This stage is about the bigger picture and no design will occur here. It is important for setting the brand tone and style, using visual references for the design phase.

Highlights:
Project Management

We use different project management software to help work collaboratively with all our new and long standing clients. Used for any size of project Trello and Asana allow clients to comment, share attachments, set due dates and much more so all the details of the project are kept in one place.

This type of working helps keep work organized, up to date and transparent so you’re always kept aware of how projects are progressing.
