Our Solution

Research

To achieve the result, we decided to undergo a complete 360 research of the business. We ran Instagram story surveys to understand the audience and engagement level. The next stage required the study of the external market, which includes the Market, audience, and competitors.

Strategy

The next stage requires the development of a strategy for the design. The Brand Strategist met up with the Client on a couple of occasions to understand their expectation of the project. The team moved with the Agile mode of communicating with the Client when it was required based on our definition of approving a feature created. We decided on using a flower as an inspiration.

Design

The design team was split into three to have different specialists focus on their roles in delivering the project. They all utilise the rules issued by the strategies to ensure a uniform brand design. The illustrator created the Brand Animation before sending it off to the Graphics Designer to adopt and Develop the Brand Logo. The brand Designer follows the guide to building the Brand Packages.
