Brand Development Services
Brands should grow and develop along with the companies they represent. When things are working well, your brand is an accurate and memorable representation of your company and what it is about. It communicates your values, your vibe and your mission, both explicitly and symbolically. Your brand is a promise from your company to your customers about the specific benefits, quality, and value that you offer.
New Brand Needed
But sometimes your brand may be out of sync with your company. Maybe your company went through a merger, or you’ve added new product lines and new capabilities that aren’t yet reflected in the company messaging. Maybe the look of the brand has just become stale and outdated over the years. Alternatively, your company may be new, and positioning, messaging and branding need to be created from the ground up. In all of these cases, a brand strategy process may be needed to get your brand working for your company instead of against it.
“I was just spending some time on the Ziteo website after not reviewing it for a while. I am impressed at how really excellent it is. Not sure if I ever fully thanked you for what you did for the project. Well thanks! Your teamwork with Alyssa and Lucile was great.”

Let’s Talk about Your Brand.
Brand Development Services
Developing and deploying a brand strategy can be daunting. The brand strategy and delivery process is complex, but our proven process has methodically produced positive results for clients. We use agile-based project management techniques to stay focused while being receptive to feedback and tuned to shifting business priorities. Our Business Sprint process means you can count on us to produce high impact results, consistently, on time and on budget.
Remote Friendly Since Forever
Our track record of working remotely predates zoom and other tools that are commonly used today. We’ve worked on branding, websites, and other projects that span time zones and continents where it isn’t practical to bring people together in person.
Successful brand projects begin with a strong start. JUG Team marketing provides prospective clients with a questionnaire to help you perform an internal assessment on your own. If you like our process and want to learn more, reach out to us.
After you hire the JUG Team we set up your brand project for success. Getting the scope, budget and timeline in alignment is important so everybody involved has the right expectations. In the setup phase we discuss the stakeholders who will be involved and form the brand counsel. Your brand project might be weeks long or months long depending upon the scope. Either way, we make sure we define what success looks like and work toward that incrementally. We move in shorter cycles with frequent feedback and reviews.
Discovery – Design – Delivery
Large brand projects are delivered in smaller increments that are validated along the way by the client. During this phase we establish a rhythm of discovery, design, and delivery. Each time we go through this cycle we produce deliverables that are reviewed and validated by the client team. Discovery tools include surveys, audits, exercises, assessments, concepts maps, interviews, research, etc.
Design and Deliverables
In design mode we may be creating words, graphics, images, color, typography, icons, mood boards, or other explorations towards your brand project. With each cycle completed more deliverables contribute to the brand project. These deliverables are validated by your team and may include logos, graphics, naming, positioning platform, value propositions, boilerplate, web copy, or a brand experience.
Deploy and Maintain
By the time we launch your brand we’ve delivered on all of the elements of your brand project. Now it’s time to share the new logo, positioning, website, and brand experiences with the world. We may do this through events and communications with channels, employees, press, investors, and suppliers. As we launch we’ll also want to be mindful of performance. We’ll listen for mentions, monitor traffic, and pay attention to sentiment and monitor the brand metrics discussed during project setup.
Extending the Brand
By the time you launch your brand you’ll have a rich visual identity and powerful words that can be applied across assets and locations at whatever pace the company is comfortable with. Of course JUG Team can remain a resource.
