At Creative ADM we value the importance of both strategy and design.

To have one without the other only gets you so far. But when you have both, you have a powerful force.

When great design is based on a solid strategy, it has purpose. It then has the ability to not only effectively communicate to the appropriate audience, but to initiate action. And that, is our goal.

Creative without strategy is called ‘art’. Creative with strategy is called ‘advertising’.

DIscovery

We begin our process with discovery. We facilitate workshops, gather insights, collect data, strategically review our findings and consider the target market, in order to gain a full understanding of the project – and to plan our strategy.

Only then, with our strong strategy as a foundation, do we consider design.

  • Workshop facilitation

  • Strategy and planning

  • Insight gathering

  • Data collection and review

  • Strategic review

  • Target market analysis

development

Next is the development stage, where we begin to look at design, as well as logistics and messaging. We think about how the brand – or project – will look, feel, sound and work. We do more planning and concept development, until we’re ready to implement it.

  • Brand positioning and development: developing tone of voice, narrative, associated look and feel

  • Campaign concept development

  • Visual styling

  • Key messaging matrix

  • Copywriting

  • Brand / logo design

  • Shoot planning and logistics

  • Imagery selection

  • Communications strategy

  • Infographics development

  • Visual mood boards
