WHAT IS A ‘BRAND-IN-A-DAY’?
The Creative Collective has developed hundreds of brands for businesses of all sizes and heralding from all industries. Our creative strategists and designers have years or experiencing coming up with brand strategies for clients with differing visions for their brand mark. Over time, we have managed to fine-tune the process of brand development into an eight hour period (9am – 5pm). You can participate in one of our “brand-in-a-day” developments in person where geography permits (from our Sunshine Coast or Newcastle offices) or online from anywhere in the world – we will share our screen with you and communicate via Skype. Working with our experienced and fun team, you will be amazed at what can be achieved in such a short space of time!
- Do you need a brand or logo in a hurry?
- Do you have a limited budget?
- Do you hate faffing about and would rather get things like this over and done with so you can move forwards with other business?
- Is your current brand looking rundown and in need of a makeover?
GOOD GRAPHIC DESIGN IS THE FOUNDATION OF SHARP MARKETING!
By working with us, you are accessing a team of experienced, forward thinking creative graphic designers. We handpick which designer works on your project by matching your vision for the design with the designer who is best suited to achieve that design.
You’ll no longer need to understand the difference between a PDF and a j-peg, or your dots per inch to your pixels. Working with professional vector based programs; Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator & Adobe InDesign to name a few, our graphic designers can create designs for you in any required format.
We’re also big on protecting your brand through appropriate brand protection such as trademarks and house style guides so that once we do graphics work for you, forever after you have a clear guide on how to maintain a consistent corporate identity.
A professional graphic design service requires creative intelligence, and asking the right questions, to ensure we can achieve a design that you love (after all you have to look at it each day) but more importantly which will resonate with your target market and existing clients.
There are basic brand style guides which are just a couple of pages of colour palettes and typography and there are comprehensive brand style guides which expand on the proposed journey of your brand to document and unify how you present on not just traditional channels such as print, but in the digital age we live in, your website, social media, and more. Things such as the imagery you use on social media and hashtags need to be considered, as does the imagery and copy on your website. Do you have a brand style guide? Does it communicate all of this. If you are serious about looking cohesive and professional, you need a comprehensive brand style guide to ensure all of your brand style elements work together for greatest impact, whatever the medium.
Professional marketing collateral will be ‘on-brand’ and effectively communicate your messages to your audience.
We have extensive experience designing all sorts of documents and formats including but not limited to business cards, stationery, presentation folders, capability statements, annual reports, prospectus’s, visual identity kits, duplicate or triplicate pads, books, bound documents and cards/invitations to name a few!
Given our intimate knowledge of the printing process, we can also advise and design your collateral in a way that will be most cost efficient for printing, if that’s a requirement.
We have a range of wholesale printing partners giving us access to fast turnaround times and cheaper rates than you could otherwise get from a retail printer. There are price efficiencies if you are wishing to print standard items such as business cards, flyers or stationery. However if your job is a little more custom, we can also quote and arrange this.
Oh, and we deliver all over Australia or Internationally!
When it comes to printing, you don’t know what you don’t know. Leave the printing jargon to us!
