We knit-pick* and better brands

through creative analysis and new ideas

*The exploration and prevention of brand-snagging and unravelling. 

TO TAKE CREATIVE STRIDES...

Over time, a brand and its purpose may become diluted, lost, tangled. Like a ball of string, the threads to our businesses have a role in weaving together the blueprint of what makes your business uniquely yours. What if, however, you've lost sight of this? Or, perhaps you're experiencing a lack of brand clarity and creativity, a spot of innovation frustration?  Preventing you from the attention you deserve and achieving the vision you wish. 

Well, firstly, my job is to bring to your attention that creativity can’t be an afterthought. Creativity isn’t a disturbance or a risk, a one-off publicity stunt or a quick fix. Creativity is the flamboyant, fancy, feathered hat you choose to wear in  a busy crowd for the purpose of stepping up and standing out. "Watch me go!" you shout. Only then, when you choose to welcome and embrace creativity like a dear friend or wear it proudly, daily, like a hat (or any other piece of clothing of your choosing) can you truly take innovative, change-making and positive steps forward for your business. And, believe me, I know you and I can do just that.

Allow your brand to step into places it may not have ventured to before. Allow it the freedom to try new things and breath into the space new and innovative ideas can offer it. An idea is a door of positive possibility. And, sometimes one idea is all it takes.

Now, for introductions. *Shakes hand* I'm Chloe, the Creative Consultant.

A Creative Consultant is the 'Hotel Inspector' of branding, marketing and communication, questioning everything from the subliminal messaging behind a logo, the emotions she feels when receiving a parcel, to why you decided to start your tweet with that particular choice in word. 

 

You see, the finer components feed into the overall perception of your brand and the experience you deliver, making detail just as important as the big picture. 

 

Which is why I pride myself in my ability to take all threads of your online and offline marketing to question and assess whether it's authentically and creatively connecting back to your brand. By doing so we will be able to gain you the brand strength, clarity and creativity to move forward. 

Why do I love my work? Because I'm incredibly passionate about seeing good brands and great ideas make a positive impact in the world. Ideas that spark emotion, conversation, and welcomed change. All starting with your business.

Chloe provided us with a social media comb-through for our brand at a time when we felt things were beginning to stagnate and we needed some fresh ideas. Not only did she provide these but she combed out the things which were thought were working and gave them a new injection of life. Overall it has given us a new enthusiasm for the brand.

TESTIMONIALS

I would highly recommend working with Chloe to anyone wanting their brand to go away from "the usual corporate messaging". I needed my brand to translate fun, play, professionalism and connection with people. Here, I had been struggling to bring together the different concepts and ideas that formed my brand. Everything felt a bit disjointed. For a while, I struggled to explain this to people and other marketers...until Chloe showed up. Chloe has a keen eye for details, unlike many other people.

For Bumble & Oak, Chloe went above and beyond. She is a collaborative visionary because somehow she unveiled my own vission before me. Without your creative guidance, input, editing, content suggestions and inspirations, the bumble box would not have been launched. Your input was truly invaluable and I really felt guided, listened to and supported.
