Rebranding: Refocus, Refine & Refresh. Rebranding a business/product can be an overwhelming task, but also a rewarding process that will create significant benefits. It can breathe new life into a business/product, but it helps to do it with a clearly defined strategy and process, a creative vision, and most of all for the right reasons.

A brand is the sum of all the touch-points that come into contact with your customers and potential customers. A brand is the big picture – but your logo is the front line of your business. We help businesses to re-brand – from a simple logo redesign to a full overhaul of a brand identity.

Getting a quality website is not an expense, but rather an investment.

Dr. Christopher Dayagdag

A creative and functional website design for your business is important. Your website is one of the most important components of your business’s marketing initiatives, so it is important to get it right. And striking the balance between a visually appealing design, and yet an intuitive an easy to navigate site, is critical.

 
 

Our web developers enjoy what they do, and strive to be good at what they do by keeping up with new developments and trends. This process of getting you online is one that should be enjoyed as well – both for you and us, and therefore we follow a well set out process to ensure this!  We also offer advice on domain name registration and hosting services, which allows a seamless process.  Putting your brand online efficiently is our focus.

BrandCafe Helped Rebrand My Property Development

When I approached The BrandCafe, I already had some limited branding and marketing collateral, but it lacked cohesion & clarity and was sending an inconsistent message to potential buyers into Windspur Estate. BrandCafe helped refresh and streamline the brand – from redesigning the logo, applying it to the stationery and marketing items (flyers & brochures) and designing & building our website to provide a simple, consistent & clear message that is instantly recognizable in the property development marketplace in Nottingham Road and surrounding areas in the KZN Midlands. Thank you Raewyn for your advice, expertise and friendly customer service. You have given our development the lift that it needed and the presence it deserves.
