(without hiring an agency)

Many organisations find it hard to communicate. It's not their fault. They are simply not designed from the ground up to work that way. Getting from an initial idea on paper to a great branded product or business can be tough. Inertia, politics, limited resources and the day-to-day running of a business can get in the way. That's where Brand in a Box comes in.

Brand in a Box is our proprietary outcome-based marketing communications strategy tool. It is a collaborative and tested process that repeatedly delivers innovative and tangible outcomes such as brand concepts, clear messaging, media solutioning and much, much more.

How does it work?

The trick is to get the right people in the room all focused in the right direction. So before we start, we'll spend some time defining the brief and collating a team of creatives, researchers, subject-matter experts and, of course, you. This preparation allows us to run the collaborative workshop efficiently, making sure we squeeze every bit of value in the limited time we have. We will also prepare a brief outlining the objectives before we start.

How do we do it?
