Brand Building Services

We can help you differentiate your brand through strategy and storytelling.

At SpellBrand, we work with our clients to help them identify and implement a brand strategy that would differentiate their brand from the competition.

We dig deep, research, brainstorm and then come up with a positioning and brand strategy that sets down a path to stand out in the marketplace and achieve business goals set down.

Differentiation is the key. If you do not differentiate your brand and stand out amongst your competition, your brand would wither and die!

Each stage is carefully managed to create a comprehensive and impactful brand identity​:

  1. Moodboarding: This is the first stage where the design team gathers images, text, color swatches, and other visual elements that represent the brand’s intended aesthetic and emotional appeal. It serves as a visual guide that ensures everyone involved in the project shares the same visual understanding and direction.

What is the significance of a Brand Strategy Workshop in SpellBrand’s Branding Service?

The Brand Strategy Workshop offered as part of SpellBrand’s Branding Service is critical in laying the groundwork for the brand’s development. It is the foundation upon which the rest of the branding process is built.

Here’s why it’s so significant:

  1. Brand Essence Discovery: The workshop helps to identify the brand’s essence, which includes its purpose statement, vision, and mission. The brand essence is the “soul” of the brand – its core values and what it stands for. By defining this, the business can ensure that all future branding efforts align with these foundational elements. This helps to create a consistent and authentic brand experience for the target audience.
  2. Ideal Customer Persona Definition: In the Brand Strategy Workshop, the brand strategist works with the client to identify and define the brand’s ideal customer persona and archetypes. Understanding the target audience is crucial for shaping the brand’s messaging, positioning, and overall strategy. It allows the brand to create a personalized and relevant experience that resonates with its audience.
  3. Competitive Positioning: The workshop involves researching the competition to understand how they are different or not so different. This knowledge is then used to carve out a unique positioning for the brand in the market. It’s about identifying opportunities where the brand can stand out and offer something different or better than its competitors.
  4. Brand Differentiation: The workshop helps to identify the brand’s “onlyness” – the one thing that sets it apart from others in the market. This is a crucial aspect of brand strategy, as this uniqueness can draw customers to the brand and make it memorable.
  5. Brand Voice Development: The workshop also involves creating a brand message playbook that represents the tone and voice of the brand. This ensures consistency across all communication channels and helps the brand to establish a unique and recognizable identity.

By conducting a Brand Strategy Workshop at the beginning of the branding process, SpellBrand ensures that the brand’s identity and strategy are clearly defined and understood.

This provides a solid starting point for all subsequent steps in the branding process, from logo design to marketing strategy, ensuring that everything aligns with the brand’s core essence, values, and goals.

This service includes several key components, each serving a unique purpose in enhancing your brand’s identity:

  1. Primary Logo Design: The primary logo is the most visible representation of your brand, appearing on virtually all branded materials. As such, it must be visually appealing and accurately represent your brand’s essence. SpellBrand works to create a logo design that is not only visually stunning but also effectively communicates your brand’s story and message.
  2. Secondary Icon/Mark: A secondary brand mark offers versatility in your branding. It can be used in various applications, from merchandise and apparel to social media. This mark is a powerful visual representation of your brand and can take forms such as a seal, stamp, or embossed decal. This secondary mark enhances your brand’s recognition and appeal and is a key component of a strong brand identity.
  3. Color Palette: The color palette is critical to your brand identity system as it evokes certain emotions and associations. SpellBrand will help you select a color palette that resonates with your brand’s personality and appeals to your target audience. Consistent use of these colors across all brand touchpoints helps to reinforce brand recognition.
  4. Typography: Typography is another crucial element of brand identity. The fonts used in your brand communications should align with your brand personality and be easily readable across various mediums. SpellBrand assists in the selection of typography that complements your brand’s identity and enhances readability.
  5. Brand Collateral: Brand collateral refers to the collection of media used to promote the brand and support the sales and marketing of its products or services. This could include business cards, letterheads, brochures, and online graphics. SpellBrand ensures that your brand collateral is consistently designed in line with your brand identity, reinforcing a cohesive visual narrative.
