  • What is a brand?
    A brand is like your business's personality—how people perceive it. It's not just a logo; it's the vibe, the feelings, and the impressions that stick with your customers. Think of it as the unique stamp that sets you apart in a crowd.
  • Why do I need a brand?
    Your brand is your first impression. It's what makes you memorable. In a world full of options, a strong brand is like a magnetic force—it attracts the right customers and keeps them coming back. It's the secret sauce that turns a one-time buyer into a loyal fan.
  • Isn't my logo my brand?
    Nope, your logo is the face, but your brand is the whole package. It's the way you talk, the colours you use, and the emotions you evoke. A logo is just the starting point; your brand extends to everything that shapes how people recognise and remember you.
  • What exactly is a brand identity then?
    Your brand identity is like your brand's wardrobe. It's the look and feel—the logo, the colours, the fonts—that gives your brand a consistent style. Imagine it as the cool outfit your brand wears to stand out at the party of products and services.
  • What is a branding studio?
    A branding studio is like a creative HQ for your brand. We're the squad that helps craft and amplify your brand's vibe. From logo design to creating an overall game plan, we're here to make sure your brand is the talk of the town (or the internet).
  • What does a branding studio do?
    We're the behind-the-scenes magicians who cook up the perfect blend of strategy and creativity. From designing eye-catching logos to mapping out your brand's entire journey, we're here to make sure your brand not only looks good but also feels just right.
  • Why hire a branding studio instead of a graphic designer on Fiverr?
    Fiverr is cool for quick gigs, but your brand needs more than just a quick fix. We're the full-package deal. We dive deep into your brand, understand its soul, and craft a unique identity that screams "you" in a way that clip-art logos just can't match.
  • What are the different types of branding?
    There's corporate branding for big players, product branding for specific gems, service branding for the pros, personal branding for the solo acts, and cultural branding for those who want their brand to be a lifestyle statement. It's like picking the right flavour for your brand vibe.
  • What are brand guidelines and why are they important?
    Brand guidelines are the rulebook, your ultimate brand Bible. They keep everything on point—logo usage, colours, fonts—so your brand stays true to itself. Think of it as the roadmap that ensures your brand doesn't lose its way in the crazy world of marketing.
  • Can you revamp my existing brand?
    Of course! Whether your brand needs a makeover or a full-blown transformation, we're up for the challenge. We will cover all deliverables in our quick off; we'll sprinkle some creative magic, give it a fresh vibe, and voilà – a brand that's ready to steal the spotlight all over again.
  • What's the secret to a killer brand strategy?
    Shh... it's not really a secret. It's all about understanding your brand's heartbeat. We delve into your goals, audience, and competition, mix in a dash of creativity, and whip up a brand strategy that's not just effective but downright legendary.

  • What is a retainer?
    A retainer is a pre-agreed arrangement where you reserve a set amount of our services for a minimum period of three months. This ensures priority access to our expertise and dedicated resources for ongoing support. Invoices for retainer services are typically due upon receipt, allowing for a straightforward and transparent billing process. The specifics of each retainer are project-dependent, tailored to your unique requirements and the nature of the ongoing collaboration. This model provides stability and consistency, making it an ideal choice for businesses seeking continuous, reliable access to our services.
