BRANDING

Standing apart from the flock.

Branding

Brand development, brand refresh, and brand messaging are among Harp’s core strengths. A distinct and compelling brand message, along with brand identity and “packaging” or thematics, are the foundation of everything that follows. When this is on-target, you get greater return on your marketing dollars.

Harp has honed a process that gets to the heart of your brand—beyond “what it is” and “what it does” to determine “what it means” and therefore, to connect, with those who matter most—your target audience.

Strategic brand development, brand evolution, brand messaging from Harp Interactive
A brand that captures your mind gains behavior. A brand that captures your heart gains commitment.
– Scott Talgo, Brand Strategist
 

 

Harp’s brand development, brand refresh and brand messaging are based on the critical level of “what it means.” While many agencies attempt to develop your unique selling proposition and messaging based around “what it does” or “what it is”, our proven Workshop process enables us to get to the heart of the matter.
 

 

Brand Development, Evolution & Launch
Harp’s Brand Workshop is a highly-focused, compact session providing an agency-guided format that brings to light and explores optimum branding opportunities by fusing the functional, emotional, and competitive arena for each product or service.

Deliverables include:

  • Brand Positioning Platform or Brand Story A succinct statement positioning the brand.
  • Naming Should a name for a new launch be needed, our creative team will generate go-to-market names that can be owned in the space.
  • Value Proposition A statement of the functional, unique, emotional, and self-expressive benefits delivered by the brand that provides value to the customer. This is the message to be actively communicated to the target audience.

 

  • Tagline Development The conceptual and creative execution(s) that "package(s)" the brand/value proposition. While the brand is ongoing, the campaign thematics may be refreshed as appropriate.
  • Brand Identity Art exploration to create or evolve the logo.
  • Brand Management Guidelines An electronic document (password protected online access) with fonts, colors, usage, and art for consistent branding across all media.

Successful branding differentiates you in a unique way that is meaningful to your target audience.
