What we do
Follow our Brand Building steps below to see how we typically take a project from concept to delivery.
D1. DISCOVERY – UNDERSTAND THE CURRENT SITUATION
Every journey starts with open and honest examination of the landscape in which you operate. We research and investigate your business plans, audience, vision, values, your people and competitors to establish an understanding of your current business context.

D2. DEFINE – BE CLEAR ABOUT YOUR STRATEGY
We’ll help you articulate the authentic purpose of your business in a meaningful and tangible way to provide traction for the creative process of brand creation to begin.
Business strategy – goals, products & services, audience
Business branding – style & tone
D3. DESIGN – ESTABLISH A BRAND IDENTITY
We develop a set of guidelines that govern your new look and feel. This identity framework includes tangible outputs like naming, straplines, tone-of-voice, logos and their usage, images, colour-ways, typography and layout.
A brand is also a state of mind. Connexxions can work with your HR department to establish strategies for internal communication and cultural change management.
D4. DEVELOP – APPLY THE BRAND CONSISTENTLY
We have a full service delivery capability, and can help you create imaginative campaigns that work, or simply design a great brochure, website, or other output. Whatever it is, it will be compliant to your brand guidelines, whether you’re blue chip or young fry.
