Branding & Messaging

Companies often try to simply “draw a brand out” from a website redesign. Whether it’s for cost reasons or timing, we’re here to tell you that this simply doesn’t work; in fact, it’s backwards.

A true and memorable brand isn’t just an incidental outcome of some other project. It should be strategically created based on a company’s core values, and it informs all other marketing initiatives.

That said, a website redesign does create a great opportunity to check in and see if your brand is really meeting your expectations:

  • Do you stand out amongst your competition?
  • Do your prospects really know what makes you different?
  • Do they know “what you’re all about” as a company?

If you can’t confidently answer “Yes!” to those questions, we may have an opportunity to work together.
