Brand Style Guide
A formal ‘rule’ book to ensure brand consistency
YOUR BRAND COMMUNICATES YOUR IDENTITY.
MAKE SURE IT DOES IT WELL WITH A BRAND STYLE GUIDE.
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.

Let’s Start with What You Need
By working with us, you are accessing a team of experienced, forward thinking creative graphic designers who specialise in the development of brands. We handpick which designer works on your project by matching your vision for your brand with the designer who is best suited to achieve that design. Some clients get us to work on a Brand Style Guide in isolation, bringing existing design elements they may already have together and evolving it more.
Others get us to create their brand from scratch, and then we develop a brand style guide to ensure future consistency. Others get us to make over their existing brand and roll out a range of marketing collateral – both printed and digital.
OUR BRANDING PORTFOLIO
We have been privileged to work and grow with a diverse range of clients on their brands and brand style guides. We have worked with all sorts of businesses; from small operations to national and international brands and heralding from all industries. See some examples below.
TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR BRANDING CLIENTS
“The Creative Collective had a complex challenge to pull together a brand for us given the number of stakeholders and different target markets the brand had to appeal to. The workshopping process was thorough and The Creative Collective were very responsive in our requirements to finalise the end result. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback as we’ve used this brand out in the marketplace. It really seems to be resonating with the target markets.”
“Yvette and Kat are the most energetic, vibrant and trend-setting team I have ever encountered. Always cheerful, smiling, superbly intelligent and on-the-ball they make the graphic design process a wonderful and happy adventure of discovery. What’s more I feel “safe” in their capable hands as beyond their obvious talents they work to the highest standards of ethics and integrity which can be a rare commodity in today’s commercial world. I retained the Creative Collective on the basis of my initial impression of Yvette herself and as such my expectations were set “very high” – I was not disappointed – my expectations were met “admirably”by both Yvette and Katrina. What more can I say – they are the best! “
“We’ve been working with The Creative Collective for 12 months now and have been very happy with the results from the campaigns they have managed for us. The team are very professional and easy to deal with.”
“If the concept wasn’t enough, the marketing has blown me away. I’ve received an enormous amount of positive feedback from all genders, young and old who all comment on the name/design The Creative Collective came up with for me. I love driving around in my Brew Captain branded vehicle and handing out the professionally designed marketing items. This is my first time in business for myself and everything from start to finish was very simple, and easy working with these guys. It was a real pleasure and we’ll continue to use them as the business grows from a one man show to hopefully a full franchise.”
“I am so thrilled with what this company can do in a day. It has been such a breeze working with them and they have made everything really easy and simple. I have unsuccessfully tried previously to get my websites up and running and I finally have a stunning website and branding. Couldn’t recommend you guys enough! 10/10!”
“Could not recommend this amazing company enough.
