Brand Strategy

CEPSM has extensive experience developing brand strategies for a variety of government and non-profit organizations. Many organizations tend to confuse branding with merely the visual identity components (e.g. logos and colour schemes), however in reality branding is a crucial strategic tool that can guide decision making and position your organization accordingly within your industry. A key step involves the development of a strong unique value proposition, values, character and overarching vision and mission, which should be genuinely lived-out by the people in your organization across all brand touch points.
