The project is now live on Kickstarter.
Brand briefs can be tedious. Most times, they are full of paradoxes, clichés and overall vagueness. If you’re not too keen on playing buzzword bingo while your client is laying their cards on the table, the Brand Strategy Kit will let you reshuffle the stack, helping your client to articulate their aspirations in a way that leaves no room for misinterpretation.
Hi, I’m Egle Karalyte (call me EK), a results-driven brand strategist and experience designer.
I’ve created this Kit for the fellow brand strategists and designers who have a burning desire to level up their practice, serve world-class clients and catch the next wave of success.
This Kit will take you through the inside-out brand strategy process. You’ll cut through the clutter of all floating ideas, get to the essence of it all and create a solid foundation for packaging a product or service into an authentic brand that drives action and excites people to come back for more.
The Brand Strategy Kit ensures smooth sailing for any branding project, cutting branding time in half and making any branding decisions easier to follow for everyone involved.
Are you a designer or a brand strategist? Do you need a tool to facilitate the brand strategy sessions in a successful and fun way?
Are you launching a new brand or upleveling an existing one? Do you need a tool to help you define your brand, visualize your target audience and prioritize your goals?
Are you craving to go solo from your existing job and need a solid action plan for making your next move?
Do you want to diversify your creative business but can’t find a way to unify its components under one umbrella in a way that makes sense?
The Brand Strategy Kit saves both designers and strategists time as well as head-scratching troubles by making options tangible and concrete. Whereas Behance, Pinterest and other tools to put together a mood board feed you an endless scroll of possibilities, this toolkit jump-starts you in the right direction faster by narrowing down your scope. In the box, you’ll find six buoys to keep you afloat.

Your brand isn’t just a product or a service, it’s also a story of who you are and why you are. The pillars of every brand story are the principles that define a brand’s personality. These 40 hand-picked personality cards will help you define your brand’s core principles.
The premium version of the Brand Cards will be coming out with a nicely designed box. It will have enough of space for you to add your own cards and customize the box on your own. Have fun with this!
