Your brand matters

Does your brand represent the real you?

It's wayyy too easy for a good business to be let down by terrible branding. WE won't let that happen.

Let's talk

When you talk about branding, most people immediately think about your logo. But your brand is a lot more than that. 

Your brand is who you are. It's what people think or say about you when you're not around. It's what you stand for. It's even how you make people feel.

Get it right: you're memorable to the right people. They feel more comfortable with you, which makes them more likely to take action.

Get it wrong: you're forgettable at best, put people off at worst. You end up fighting an uphill battle for results.

You never get a second chance at a first impression, so let's make that impression count.

How it works

Strategy

Before we can do anything else, we need to understand who you are, who your targe audience is, what you stand for, why people should be working with you, and how you want to be seen in the industry. 

That lets us figure out what your brand actually is, which gives us what we need to start working on your brand identity.

Identity

With a clear plan in mind, we start working on some brand concepts. We identify color combinations that will pass on the right message to your target audience, fonts that convey the right emotions, and start working on some options for your logo.

We then review the concepts together, do any refinement that might be necessary, and come up with a final choice for your identity that we can be confident will hit the target.

Execution

With your brand and identity taken care of, we can prepare the final brand guide to tell you how to implement your brand. 

This gives you the rules on how to use and not use your logo, how the colours work together, what types of images you should use (and what to stay away from). It's your complete brand bible.

LEvel up your brand

Let's be real: it isn't hard to find a cheap logo that looks decent. Heck, there's even free logo generators out there that can sometimes make something that will look... okay.

But remember, your brand isn't just your logo. And it's easy to make even a great logo look terrible, if you don't know how to use it.

Having an experienced pro develop your brand means it's going to be way more likely to actually convey the message and feelings you want conveyed. It is way more likely to give the right impression, and actually stand out (in a good way). And it's way more likely to work and look good consistently.

Do your business a favour and make sure you're representing your brand in its best possible light.

The basics

Our brand guides include

Color palette

There is a lot of science about colors and psychology, and we use that to help us develop your brand palette. Making sure your brand colors not only work together but also give off the right vibes is a key part of a good brand.

Fonts

Fonts often seem like they aren't all that important, but it makes a huge difference to the feelings your brand inspires. We match the characteristics of fonts with those of your brand for the ultimate result.

Logo

Often one of the biggest examples of your brand implementation, we develop a logo that works on a variety of different mediums, in a variety of different sizes, and (of course) helps your brand stand out.

Image usage

Your brand guide will include some ideas of the images that represent your brand, and what sort of styles they are and how to use them.

Mockups

To help visualise what's possible, our brand guides also include some example mockups of your brand being applied in the real world.

Dos and Don'ts

For each section of the brand guide, we includes "dos and don'ts" to make sure you don't apply your brand in ways that diminish its quality.

Frequently asked Questions

We've been doing this a long time, and are used to the questions. Here are the most common questions we encounter when it comes to branding.

How much does branding cost?

Branding is an extremely broad term that can include your company name, tagline, logo, brand guide, brand voice, color palette, fonts, copywriting, photography, videography, sales & marketing collateral, and more. There is no one size fits all but we promise once you get on the phone with us and we discover your goals we'll be able to provide a recommendation... including the investment needed. Contact us to get started.

How long is the branding process?

The scope of branding can include forming your company name, tagline, logo, brand guide, brand voice, color palette, fonts, copywriting, photography, videography, sales & marketing collateral, and more.

Depending on the work that needs to be done and the size of your company this can range from 6 weeks to a year. Quite the range!

Let's first narrow down your scope and then we can talk timelines.

Will I own my branding assets?

Absolutely!

We understand that owning your assets, even for a small business, is a critical part of solidifying a future online.

Once we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:

  • You own the graphics and other visual elements that we create for you for this project.
  • You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided unless someone else owns them.
  • We’ll give you a copy of all original and vectored files and you should store them very safely as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files we used to make them.

Can you work with my existing Marketing team?

We can extend your existing marketing firm with graphic design, copywriting, photography, and help from our SEO specialists to get you more traffic.

However, there is a benefit in combining your internet marketing agency with your development company.

We can provide that solution for you.

Online marketing services require a different set of tactics than what some traditional marketing agencies are equipped to handle.

We are happy to talk and work with your existing internet marketing agency.

Where is your team located?

All of Thrive's staff work remotely from their home-based offices, primarily between the USA, the UK, and Australia.

Nick is our strategist. He lives in Sydney, Australia (and has a fabulous accent). Our strategy and design sessions are held via video conferencing sessions.

By having our team across three major time zones (US, Europe, Australia) we always have the bases covered for your company.
