Is Your Business Starting a Marketing Project? Why You Need a Creative Brief

Posted by StellaPop on Jan 10, 2019 12:49:19 PM

You know what they say, a project without a plan is a wish. 

It happens to us all the time. A client asks us to design an ad, create a brochure or build a website. That's awesome - it's what we do, after all - but before we get started we need to know exactly what we're creating and why.

All of this information goes into a creative brief, which is the roadmap we use to determine the eventual creative output. What is a creative brief? It's a plan on what and how to deliver a project. Why is a creative brief important? As creatives, we're strategic partners. We don't just design for the sake of design. We want to ensure that what we create meets your business goals. A creative brief provides the foundation needed to make sure that we're delivering what you need.

Posted by StellaPop on Nov 6, 2018 7:37:00 AM

What do you think when you think of luxury? Sure, Louis Vuitton bags, Lambos, and bottles of Dom Perignon spring to mind, but the term may not be as regal as you think. By definition, luxury brands are ones that provide a sense of exclusiveness; they’re brands that have built a reputation out of offering a highly personalized service that typically exceeds expectations.

With the release of Interbrand’s yearly Best Global Brands report earlier this month, luxury was far and away this year’s best-performing category.  In fact, luxury products increased an impressive 42% from last year. It seems everyone’s hopping on the luxury bandwagon these days -- from tech companies to budget brands and more.
