Your Brand Codex™ is a living, breathing incarnation of your Core Values, your Strategic Priorities, and your Purpose. It will be your Northstar; an adaptive guide that will enable you to articulate the company’s vision, goals, strategies, core values, and value proposition with clarity and confidence. It will be used to facilitate realignment when things get blurry, and it can evolve as the company navigates growth, ever-changing global markets and emerging trends.

OUR PROGRAMS

Tying In Your Why’s & Value Proposition

Communicating the why and how of things—why the company is heading in a certain direction; why certain strategies are implemented; how they will bring forth positive impact to both the company and customers; and HOW to adopt them—is extremely crucial to building brand value and achieving the company’s BHAG. The articulation of value, and means of delivery to shareholders, employees, customers, partners and vendors, must be consistent and clear. Effective communication (and sometimes over-communication) is mandatory for successful implementation of Strategic Priorities.  

ENGAGE

Connect to see how we can help you condense, contain and encode the strategic force of your brand into a communicable and empowering Codex that succinctly outlines rules of engagement.

Legacy vs. Heritage vs. Innovation

Blind adherence to the way things were done in the past can be detrimental to the brand. The Brand Codex™ will be your brand barometer: a constant fluid-but-focused guide that will allow you to recognize what needs to be changed quickly and what needs to be adopted as the company heads full force towards an ever-changing competitive landscape.

Fluid-but-Focused Communication Strategy

The Brand Codex™ goes beyond your ordinary Brand Guidelines/Playbook. It will serve as a breathing manifesto, outlining rules of engagement:

  • What can and must not be compromised,

  • What initiatives will align with the company’s core values,

  • How to execute those initiatives/campaigns at a global scale,

  • and on what medium, when, and by whom those initiatives will be executed.

Mel and her team did a fantastic job developing a comprehensive understanding of our brand and the personality we wanted to convey with our logo, branding, website, and other identity work. They really captured who we are, and who we want to be — and it was brilliantly expressed in the logo and design work they completed for us. Mel Lim Design has a real knack for capturing your brand essence and expressing it visually, and it’s a pleasure to work with them.
