Brand Clarity & Direction

Your thoughts:

‘I have a great business idea that I am really passionate about but I am unsure of where to start on the process. I am not sure if I have everything I need to start communicating my offering.’

How we can work together…

Option 1

Self-exploration

We will provide a thought-through questionnaire and worksheet to think about your brand, and you get to work on it on your own. This is beneficial for people who are fully aware of what they do and why they do it. If, on the other hand you would welcome a couple of external eyes and ears to ask you thought provoking questions before you answer the questionnaire, we wholeheartedly recommend to go for option 2.

Option 2

Facilitated workshops

We help you through the process and arrive at well formulated thoughts that can be used, when designing your brand and/or your website. With this option, you can be sure that new perspectives and insights will come to light in your thinking about your business.

We can facilitate bespoke workshops in the following areas:

/ Value Proposition Design (target market and your offering): Design of who your customers could / should ideally be;design of your strategy on the market you are competing on; design of the right business model; and perhaps the design of how you want to grow your business and yourself – understanding who you are and what matters to you most. Benefit: you will come out of this workshop equipped with knowing who your customers are and how you can serve them…feeding into designing your website properly to meet their needs.

WEBSITE DESIGN

A fully customed design website

The process

We begin the design phase of the website. Client to provide all copy and imagery for website pages unless otherwise requested. I can provide stock imagery if required.

I first prepare scamps (hand drawings) and then wireframes (which are electronically produced plans/ blueprints for the website (void of design until planning is complete).

It is integral that the website design is completed and prototyped before the website build can commence, to ensure that the build runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible, and this is a matter of best practice. This allows us to have full control over the look and feel of the website and ensure that every eventuality has been considered before the building phase.

The website design is produced with a program called Abode XD, which is the industry standard in website design. This software will allow us to review the design and see how it will look before it has been built through WordPress.

What you receive

You receive a purposeful, visually pleasing, appropriate website design, crafted in the style of your visual identity, created with a strategic approach to layout and hierarchy, user experience, engaging call to actions, customer journey, and in accordance to industry standard and best practice.

Next steps

Website assets (all design elements) handed over to Benedek to begin your website development and build.
