Brand Audit – To know exactly where you’re going, you need to understand where you’ve come from. A thorough review of your brand, current messaging and creative collateral is the best way to identify where there’s room for improvement and plot a course of action.
Brand Workshop – These workshops, hosted, managed, directed and run by Journey in Henley or a location of your choice, form the foundations of your brand purpose. We like to involve a range of people from your business, from the shopfloor to the boardroom, to get a true understanding of the competitive landscape, who your target audiences are, and the values, culture and personality of your brand. This lays the groundworks for an impactful marketing strategy.
Tone of Voice – We bring your brand’s tone of voice together in one comprehensive, easy-to-navigate document, highlighting the key messages with a focus on your target audiences. It goes on to explore how to use this messaging and where, making it a valuable, practical tool for anyone in the business that communicates with customers and prospects.
Visual Identity – Your brand’s visual identity encompasses all those things that evoke for audiences the thoughts, feelings and memories associated with your company. Ranging from typography and language to user imagery, we define and develop your visual identity so that it resonates with the people you want to do business with.
Logo Design – It’s easy for an agency to design a logo that looks better than the one you already had. At Journey, we bolster expert design skills with reasoning and rationale to create a powerful logo that plays a vital role in communicating your brand.

At Journey, brand guidelines are integral to maximising brand impact on customers and maintaining the integrity of your brand now and in the future. This vital tool safeguards against brand dilution, ensuring that the valuable brand and marketing work we do with you represents your business for years to come.

- It’s all about the process
What sets us apart from other brand and marketing agencies is our focus on applying a logical process to all of our services. Not only does this provide you with transparency and the peace of mind that we’re getting things done; it transforms the topic of brand and marketing from something that can be left-field and abstract to an actionable process that is coherent and accessible to anyone from any business or industry.
- Your power lies in your differentiator
A concern for many businesses is standing out from the competition and cutting through the noise. At Journey, we see this opportunity in the unique differentiators that all businesses have, no matter how evasive they seem. Our knowledge and experience means that we’re able to locate, harness and convey that unique point of difference to create brands and strategies that work.
- Authenticity is key
You can expect a candid, relaxed and bull-free zone in our workshops. Allowing a business’s true, authentic self to take front and centre is half the battle when creating truly inspiring brands and strategies!
- Director-led commercial expertise
We put our most senior people on the job: this Director-led approach means that the wealth of knowledge you receive from our well-seasoned brand and marketing experts is also backed up with 30 years of commercial, hands-on, real-world experience.
