Brand Specialists & Branding Experts

Every brand has a compelling story to tell but many businesses still focus on ‘what’ they do, but we all know by now that the value lives in ‘why’. Grey Coffee believe brand thinking is crucial to build significant competitive advantage and when implemented successfully is the catalyst for business growth and customer engagement.

Our branding expertise spans from helping businesses to define their brand and understand how to consistently communicate your brand across all customer touch points (including all marketing strategies, social media, digital marketing).

Grey Coffee will help you to understand the gap that exists between your business and customers. Building a cohesive brand will help you to reduce that gap and ensure your brand communication and identity is not diluted due to inconsistent implementation.

Working with a branding specialist will help you to shape a winning brand strategy, maintain relationships you build with your customers and gain the visual and verbal brand clarity you need to unlock your full brand potential.

    What does a branding agency do?

    A branding agency helps to define a brand and can assist with the brand identity and design implementation also. A branding agency is usually responsible for creating an identity and look and feel that is cohesive in its approach. Verbal and visual brand clarity is essential in understanding how to scale and grow your brand.

    • Determine and set out the criteria in which you will shortlist an agency.
    • Make sure you meet the people you will be working with.

    • Ask questions around the process and make sure you have a deep understanding of the work you’re going to undertake. Its essential to be aligned on what a successful outcome looks like.
    • Be clear on how you wish to improve your company’s reputation.
    • Identify the key stakeholders that need to be involved in the process and ensure they’re present in the initial meetings.

    What makes a good brand agency?

    A good creative agency (like any business) should be well presented. It’s true what they say that first impressions leave a lasting impact so the initial experience you have when interacting with a creative team should be professional, meaningful and memorable. A good agency will be able to display a good understanding of the challenges you face and have demonstrable experience (client examples, project case studies, testimonials) in delivering projects of a similar nature. They should have good communication skills and be able to easily explain their process and ideas with clarity.

    What is a brand specialist?

    A brand specialist is typically someone who has vast experience working with businesses specifically on the development of their brand. In many cases they become a guardian of your brand and can almost act as a brand manager!  A brand specialist will help businesses to grow a successful brand. A brand specialist will work closely with company founders, the marketing team and executive team to understand the challenges a business is facing in regards to the brand. Commonly these challenges can be with brand positioning, differentiation and communication. In any case a brand specialist will work through these challenges and help businesses find the clarity they need to communicate their brand effectively.

    How can a brand specialist help my business?

    A brand specialist can support your brand in a number of ways. A brand specialist can provide dedicated consultancy to help you understand the challenges your brand is facing. A brand specialist can help with any communication issues. Being able to articulate your brand clearly and with complete clarity isn’t as easy as you may think. A brand specialist can help overcome any issues around differentiation and positioning. Differentiation and positioning are crucial for customers to understand your brand offering. A brand specialist will help you to clearly define why a customer should pick your brand over that of your competitors. Brand specialist jobs rely on developing great collaborative working relationships to ensure everyone is aligned with the overall long-term strategy.

    What services does a brand specialist offer?

    A brand specialist will typically provide support in the following areas.

    Brand specialists work with brands to help future proof the business for long term success. Brand specialist jobs can fall into two categories. These are typically strategy or creative.
