Creating a brand that influences perception, changes behaviour and communicates a compelling story to engage with is at the heart of our approach. At Davy & Chapman, we recognise that relevance and engagement with your brand will help position you at the forefront of your industry and that genuine relationships, a deeper understanding of your needs and those of your customers is the first step.
It’s about listening, questioning and understanding the challenges and forces at play with your business. Those could be to do with your business strategies or how you communicate with your audience. Research and insights provide the starting point to achieve a balanced view of the landscape and the world around your brand. Some of those key areas include your customer’s viewpoints, demographic profiling and your business plan.
It’s now time to evaluate those answers and begin to explore our thinking both strategically and creatively to ensure the steps we follow create a genuine connection between your audience and your brand. We question, critique and assess, which then forms the framework for our creative expression. Areas that we explore include your vision and mission, what your unique value proposition is and looking at your brand architecture and what this means to you and your customers.
We begin to apply design to our thinking, looking at colour, styling, typography, tone of voice, manner, messaging and overall design expression - everything that contributes to the essence of a brand and helps to communicate your story. This now gives your brand meaning, relevance and context to not only your business but those you are targeting with your product or service.
Connecting your brand with your audience through meaningful engagement is paramount and this means exploring and choosing the right channels in which to communicate. Tailoring your brand to the most appropriate channels will amplify your brand in the market and resonate with your audience on an emotional level.
Service excellence and beautifully crafted creative is what we experienced working with Mike and the team at Davy & Chapman. They truly have put their heart and soul into creating a world class website, underpinned by clear and articulate strategy and blended with creative passion.>
