What is the difference between packages?

We offer three flat rate services: Brand Identity, Brand Strategy, and Brand Film 

  • Brand Identity is focused on designing the visual elements that create a cohesive brand image and message.

  • Brand Strategy is focused on developing and executing marketing and/or communications plans.

  • Brand Film is focused on producing high quality video content.

 Our final service is a non-flat rate package: Bespoke Branding

  • Bespoke Branding is for large scale endeavors that may require more time, resources, and budget outside of the scope signature of our flat-rate services. 

  • Examples include: organizing an event, focusing on PR, or even redesigning your office space. 


Can I choose more than one package?

Yes! You are free to mix and match packages as you see fit. Each one of our services are designed to compliment the others. 


How long does the entire process take?

Each package has a defined duration, which covers consultation to project completion.

  • Brand Identity: 30 days 

  • Brand Strategy: 60 to 90 days

  • Brand Film: 30 days

  • Bespoke Branding: defined after consultation


What to expect from your Brand Evaluation?

The Brand Evaluation is 60 - 90 minute session. 

During the session we will:

  • Set up your client profile

  • Evaluate the state of your brand using The Bird & Bear Method 

  • Define the deliverables that matter the most for you

  • Schedule our Weekly Status Report

  • Draft the Scope of Work Agreement


What is The Bird & Bear Method?

During your Brand Evaluation we use our Branding Cards to help us move through every aspect of your business while also unpacking your vision, values, and long term goals. Each card is themed and poses questions which challenge you to articulate the details that your dreams and work realities are made of.

It's an exercise that feels like '' a bit of brand therapy'' because our clients often come away with a renewed sense of clarity. Not only are your big ideas more tangible, it also provides Bird & Bear with the solid foundation needed to build a strategy that delivers what matters to you the most.


What is the Project Dashboard?

The Project Dashboard gives you interactive visibility to the project's workflow.

On your dashboard you can find:

  • Timeline

  • Task List 

  • Mockups

  • Documentation

Bird & Bear uses the awesome software provider ActiveCollab to create your dashboard. 

You will be invited via email to access your dashboard. Once accepted, you will have full access. 


How involved in the process can you be?

It's totally up to you! All our services include Weekly Status Reports but if a weekly call is a bit more than your calendar can handle, that's okay. We appreciate that everyone works differently, some delegate while others prefer to be super hands on. There's really no wrong answer.
