Announcing the Brand Strategy Kit, a tool to facilitate the branding process for designers and strategists - LIVE on Kickstarter!

 
 

Today, we’re very excited to announce the launch of the Brand Strategy Kit on Kickstarter. I invite you to stop by and have a look around.

The idea for the Brand Strategy Kit was born after working with clients world-wide for 15 years now and after organizing the Brand Strategy workshops in various cities (London, Santiago de Chile, Barcelona, Paris, Casablanca, Beirut, etc.).

I wanted to standardize the branding process I was using to help my clients uncover and define their whys, authentic points, target audience, positioning statement, and crystallize the next level for their brands.

Instead of going down the tedious route of creating traditional brand briefs that are full of paradoxes and clichés (‘we want innovative yet trustworthy’; ‘young and dynamic;’ - who hasn’t been there, right?), this Kit enables you to try out a faster and more fun approach which speeds up the branding decision-making process - as well as rests your eyes from the screen time.

Giving birth to this Kit ended up being much longer than expected, but better later than never, as they say!

I’d like to thank my “besties” sprinkled around the world for helping me to make this happen: Aiste, Pedro, Ana, Haley, Carmen, and Marita. Couldn’t have done this without you!

So here we have it. I hope you will support us!

At the end of the process, you’ll have created a Brand Canvas, which clearly communicates a brand's vision. At this point everyone experiences that "aha" moment of blissful clarity. Using the Brand Canvas it is very easy to get everyone on board for the next move and then put together a comprehensive Brand Brief for leveling up the brand.
