Branding

Put simply, branding is a process which enables us to create differentiation from competitor products or services. It’s done by creating a physical set of attributes:

01

What is
branding?

A brand name

A strapline

A brand identity

02

Why do we brand?

There’s multiple reasons for branding, the conversation could honestly be endless. But here are the 6 primary reasons we focus on.

" Products are created in a factory. Brands are created in the mind."

Walter Landor (1913-1995)

Acclaimed brand designer and a
pioneer of branding and consumer
research techniques.

The ultimate
brand.

The ultimate successful brand is one that achieves a high degree of recognition, fulfils consumers expectations with each experience and becomes the consumers first, and possibly only choice.

Multisensory
branding.

Our multisensory branding process aims to appeal to as many of the human senses as possible.

Sight is the foundational sense that branding appeals to. Elegant creations appeal to the human eyes and great branding is appreciated and recognised. Elegant brands work in conjunction with sight and memory making them memorable.

Tasteful tongue

Taste becomes involved in particular for marketing activities such as free samples or tasters. It can also be used to engage with your audience to send a message on certain products. Skoda in 2009 created a cake of their car to project it as "sweet and tasty". Their sales grew by 160% after the campaign.

Just as you've been enthralled by the background music on this site, shows the impact of sound when relating to specific brands. You'll remember this site not only for the visual experience but in particular for the sound. Sound plays a big part in branding and can wriggle into your consciousness to manipulate your emotions and connect you to a brand.

Enthralled ears

Tenacious touch

Elegant eyes

Touch is a firm secondary sense in the multisensory branding process which can induce a highly personal association with a brand or specific product. The quality of product finish, materials, shapes and sizes all are considered as part of the branding process.

Nostalgic Nose

Smell is the most sensitive of all of our senses, linking strongly to pleasure and well-being. The citizen-M hotel chain uses a specific fragrance in its hotels which has a big impact on emotion by triggering good memories of previous experiences.

Encompassing as many senses as possible helps to communicate messages in the most powerful and effective way allowing to successfully build strong brand recognition.
