The Brand Method teaches you the brand strategy knowledge AND the skills to confidently make it a core part of your business model.
This isn’t just top line theory and fluffery. This is about repeatable efficiencies and profit growth. You will get practical know-how to make your money back with your first 1-2 clients.
Your Brand Strategy Expert
I’m not a self taught brand strategist. There’s only so far books and YouTube videos can take you. Really learning the trade takes outside guidance. It doesn’t have to be learned in the classroom, but it can’t be crafted in a vacuum either.
I’ve spent 20 years in the brand and design industry. I’ve working in the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia on some of the biggest name brands… Unilever, Nestle, Pepsico, Woolworths, Tesco, to name a few.
I’ve been mentored by some brilliant brand minds and worked with brand models from the Brand Square, the Brand Onion and the Golden Circle to the Brand Key. I’ve talked brand in big boardrooms and with small and micro business owners.
In that time I’ve redeveloped my own approach to brand strategy based on what works and what I saw as the gaps. My approach is repeatable, predictable and results-focused. Clients enjoy the journey, see the value and reap the rewards.
Now, having created brand strategy solutions for my clients and fine-tuned my approach over 2 decades, all I really want is to share it with you.
Brand strategy is THE game-changer for graphic designers who want to be more than the design doer.
BRAND STRATEGY FLOATS MY BOAT
Maybe it’s a controversial opinion but I don’t think Brand strategy is something you can wing.
And it’s not as simple as a list of values and personality traits that your client shares with you in a questionnaire.
Brand Strategy, done well, is the unseen fuel behind any spot-on brand. You can’t see brand strategy, but when you meet a crystal clear brand that leaps out from the crowd, you know it’s there.
Being the person responsible for creating that kind of impact and value feels pretty damn good.
And here’s the kicker… not only does it push your client well above the parapet, it also does the same for you. You go from producer to consultant. A cost to a valuable investment. Being directed by your clients to being the creative leader. Justifying ever hour and dollar to charging a premium and making no apologies.
So we better get started don’t you think?
A glimpse Inside my brand strategy model
Folklore is a shared narrative to make a message more meaningful, through our shared experiences, hopes, desires and fears as humans.
The Folklore Brand™ calls on the same methods for message sharing that have shaped cultures and communities to build brands that are meaningful. A force for human connection.
So, are we doing this?
The world of design is crowded, and clients are looking for the promise of more meaningful value for their investment. There has never been a better time to make brand strategy your thing.
