Craft the right brand proposition and recommend the right media to reach our consumers. We write the integrated communication strategy and executing via agencies end to end. This will include briefing agencies, arriving at the campaign idea, developing executions for different media, developing the key visual and final designs for in-store collaterals, new packaging, digital strategy, website redesign etc. The fee quote will depend on a case to case basis depending on the scope of work needed.

Brands relaunch for several reasons – to shed old perceptions, create a new identity, to enable entry to new consumer segments, to enable geographic expansion, change business lines, expand portfolio, walk away from a scam or crisis etc. A brand relaunch is as much work if not more as compared to a new brand launch as it requires changing perceptions. This will mean rethinking the strategy for the relaunch, recrafting new product/ service bundle, the brand proposition, brand architecture, communication, and media strategy to cast aside the old and acquire a new identity, complete market and store roll out.
