About

Our who, what, why, where, will, won't, how, how much...

You may have noticed our website isn’t like other design agencies. We aren’t going to waste your time telling you how wacky and crazy we are - it’s not all me, me, me. We’ll leave you to decide where you’d rather put your trust, and we do take what we do seriously because we love it so much. So our site is more geared up around you, you, you, and whatever your project, vision or direction you want to take your brand, talk to us in complete confidence and we’ll work with you to achieve it.

We listen to our clients, after all you know more about your industry than we do. We are deeply passionate about our work, regardless of the product or service we are helping to market. Working with some exceptional business

owners and marketeers, they have grown to appreciate the value we add to their vision. We strive to exceed their expectations creatively, on time and within budget, again and again.

We will continue to evolve our working practice across all areas. Any opportunities that we recognise to improve our relationships, ability and service will be fine tuned to continually define what we (and our customers) deem to be the perfect working model for a creative agency.

Where

We’re based in the South West and welcome client to our studios, a chance to meet the team and brainstorm over your favourite beverage, but we enjoy relationships industry wide, nationwide and internationally also.

However, there’s no substitute to ‘face-to-face’ briefings/presentations where we achieve real value in understanding the goal. If you’d like to talk through your ideas and projects, as you can see from the client ‘scattering’ below, we’re happy to come to you also - wherever you are to ensure your project is the best it can be.

For who

We’ve developed the BRANDE strategy to ensure a brand is as strong as it can be through Branding, Creative, Artwork or Web. We haven’t worked in an industry yet when our model doesn’t excel and our strategy is consistent to all industries (B2B/B2C) whilst the result is always unique.

Our diverse experience to date includes:

  • accountancy services
  • commercial cleaning
  • construction
  • engineering
  • equestrian ware
  • footwear
  • furniture
  • giftware
  • heavy/light industrial
  • housing associations
  • ironmongery
  • joinery
  • kitchenware
  • landscape supplies
  • packaging
  • planters
  • property development
  • retail
  • safety supplies
  • service consultancies
  • automotive engineering
  • etc.

Budget

Any design resource will base it’s price on the estimated time they want or need.

We’re flexible with our relationships and appreciate sometimes customers purchasing criteria means they just can’t justify a full service investment.

Typically, on estimating any brief, we provide our recommendation for time:investment for the project. This is calculated from a great deal of experience based on the time we anticipate it would take to fulfill the project and assume you’d like to experience the BRANDE full service we’re renowned for.

However, being realists, we understand we must be competitive and we all have to sharpen our pencils from time to time. Sharpening the brief and/or reducing the time in any way possible without compromising the result guarantees we can work to your budget, not ours!

Brande values

BRANDE was created with a very clear brief in mind, to embrace a strong moral ethic and to provide a ‘best practice’ resource, whatever the project. This has defined our mantra:

affordable,approachable,efficient,highly creative

Brande vision

To secure strong, lasting relationships with all our clients and help them to succeed and exceed their expectations, not their budget.

RETAIN COPYRIGHT: We don’t retain copyright of images, design, artwork or logos. When the project is complete and paid for, all ownership is transferred to you, the client. There are no additional release fees for artwork to you unless additional work is required and agreed by you.

CHARGE SOMETHING FOR NOTHING: The old adage ‘an honest day’s work’ sits well with us. We don’t ask for anything we don’t feel is justified or you haven’t agreed to.

HIDE COSTS: An agreed budget at the start of a brief is what we will invoice. If the brief changes or evolves during the process, you will be advised before any extra costs are incurred.

We will
