Integrated Marketing Communication: Because it’s all about building a relationship
As brand experience facilitators IBD believe that process, if given supreme power, can become a restraining coop that ensures powerless advertising. Starting from secondary and primary research, IBD analyses the competition and understands the market trends, to formulate holistic brand strategies. A marketing communications plan is created, after which creative solutions are shared for the clients’ business. IBD believes that if the product does not have a personality, no one will remember it, and if the product has the wrong personality no one will believe it. Which is why IBD believes in executing work that gains both mind share and market share. IBD’s creative work engages, communicates, and sells.

    The brand as an experience:
  • Ensuring salience above all
  • Maximising differentials in the brand image

ByDesign. Creating identities that build lasting brands

ByDesign works with clients to develop or revitalise brand identities to be a true reflection of who companies or brands are, and most importantly, how they want to be perceived. IBD designs identity solutions that achieve perfection in their completeness, simplicity and elegance. And in the process create a ‘face’ for the brand that is memorable and builds a lasting relationship with consumers. The approach is simple: being strategically correct and creatively brilliant. IBD articulates a clear identity platform, designs a visual system, and plans the ideal launch for the brand, always making sure that every single touch-point for the consumer-brand interaction is configured so as to create an integrated brand experience. In other words, IBD doesn’t just design the brand and corporate identify, but also manages them.

Packaging Design

IBD has developed an evaluation tool - Packskores™ - a proprietary tool for developing the most effective brand packaging program. They begin by determining the values a consumer is looking for in the product category and the image that has to be portrayed. Next, they take into account a set of attributes that they have recognised in their studies of the finest packaging from around the globe - memorability, appeal, consistency, relevance and economy. IBD evaluates the packaging via their internal evaluation system - Packskores. This ensures that, from the simplest bottle label to the largest brand identity program, the IBD standards remain the highest.
