How can we help

Firms are at different stage of their journey. Some have dedicated teams and brands, others are just starting out. No matter where you are, our services include:

Brand strategy

Defining or refreshing your positioning, proposition, messages, personality and brand architecture (structure and taxonomy) for your list of services, solutions and products.

Brand identity

Creating or refreshing the visual identity of your brand, and mix of services, solutions and products.

Brand implementation

Creating or refreshing (design, copy, production) your mix of online and offline applications.

Brand engagement

Creating or revitalising partner and client engagement plans using fresh content and media.

In Action

Following scenarios show how we can help whatever issues you face.

Over time, you’ve developed and expanded your capabilities; but awareness and understanding are not where you want it to be. You need to sharpen your positioning, narrative, messaging, brand strategy and identity, including how you structure and name your group of products, services and solutions and how you use design, copy and imagery to bring your refreshed story to life.

Your practice area or sector group has developed a new online tool to guide clients on new regulations or similar. You now want to bring it to market. Other groups have plans to create their own products. But the firm has no structure or framework for naming and visualising its products. Neither does it have brand identity, narrative and messaging for its new bundle of products, services and solutions.

You have a collection of existing capabilities, but levels of engagement between practice and sector groups and countries varies enormously. Greater commitment is required for revenue and client growth. Making sure partners fully understand your portfolio of capabilities, including how and when they can be deployed, and have the right tools to help them confidently tell your story, is key to opening up fruitful conversations.

Clients are inundated by claims and requests. You are not getting cut through with your own content. Telling your story persuasively and creatively using thought leadership is key to developing brand awareness and understanding.
