WE BELIEVE

ALL_to_scale_2
We believe all companies – no matter the industry, stage of business or size – should have clarity about their brand. We believe brand is the mothership that unifies how content looks, sounds, feels and behaves — your product, service, social media, PR, advertising, events and even your elevator pitch.

 

After many years of working in traditional brand agencies, we know that branding services aren’t designed for small and mid-sized companies in today’s fast paced world.

 

DriveThru is.

 

We have developed a process and product for today’s new normal – to get teams and content consistently aligned behind one brand – at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional agencies.

Q’s & A’s.

What is brand?

Brand is the mothership, unifying how you look, sound, feel and act. Brand is NOT your logo or colors or company name. These are only articulations of your brand.

What’s the difference between branding and marketing?

Brand clarifies and defines who you are. Marketing is the various ways you share and interact with the world. 

What is a Brand Story?

A crystalized, transformed version of your company story. More than a mission statement, it is your reason for being — what you do, how you do it and why it matters.

Why is having a consistent look and feel important?

If you want your company to stick in your consumer’s head, you need to constantly sing the same tune over and over and over….  

Isn’t branding for when my business grows up?

No. The first elevator pitch, the first tweet, the first email you send, is marketing. Don’t spend good money on bad marketing. Start with brand... We guarantee your road will be far smoother.

When should I be thinking about my brand?

Ideally, at the very beginning. By starting with even a simple brand foundation, you’ll have the right tools to get your team aligned behind a clear brand strategy. They’ll all be able to represent your company — through words, content and actions — clearly and consistently.

Doesn’t my designer create my brand?

No. Designers should be using your Brand Guide (and a solid Creative Brief from you), to inform their design choices. A guide provides the WHY. Your logo, colors, design of your website should ALL be based on your brand, not chosen because you and your designer like the color blue. If all your creative resources are starting from the same point, you’ll ensure clarity across the board. 

Isn’t my product & brand the same thing?

Yes and no. Your product is one articulation of your brand. Just like your logo, your name, your website and anything else you create that your audience experiences.

How can I get my creatives to give me what I want?

Write a Creative Brief for EVERYTHING you create. Your brief +  Brand Guide acts as a job description for content.

Can I build my own brand?

Yes and no. To save money, you might be tempted to build your own brand. And there are plenty of step-by-step guides available to help you do this. However, when you are deep in, with so many ideas you’d like to communicate, it is a challenge to see the brand through the trees. Brand Strategists have a thorough understanding of consumers, culture, marketing and design—as well as years of brand building experience. In a quick amount of time, they are able to distill lots of information into simple and clear ideas, and express those ideas with compelling language and design direction. It’s not as easy as it looks…

Hiring a brand consultant is like hiring a plumber who clears the clog by banging the pipe once. She charges $1 for the bang, and $99 for the years of training it took to know exactly where to bang.
