What our clients say about our process

Hardly you find a company or a team that deliver 100%, the way you did it.
I really loved the way workshops were conducted, because they involved all stakeholders. Challenges were narrowed down and solutions were found almost instantly. Workshops were like creativity on steroids. I never worked with any other company or team where I felt so relaxed. It was all because you were doing all the heavy lifting.

Go for it. You will not regret it. You will be amazed at what they can deliver.
You organised a smart process for us in a methodical way, such that we were still able to be creative and productive without rigidity. Your flexibility in the process allowed us to have the extra space to re-convene while figuring out what we really wanted. You took on everything that we gave you and rolled with it. I could see that you were truly dedicated to our project.

Trust the process. Be patient. Give 100% of your thoughts and ideas in every workshop.
The best part about working with Brandenstein was trusting them 100% with the process. It was amazing to see how all the activities during the workshops came together in the final product. The process is so well planned out that everything came together so nicely at the end.

Is your process good for me?

Brandenstein wondering

Yes if:

  • A brand refresh / new brand is needed
  • Positioning your organization to better differentiate is a must
  • You want a long-lasting brand identity validated by the audience
  • No time to hire different service vendors for everything that's needed to create a brand

No if:

  • You only need a new website and don't care about branding
  • You don't want to rethink everything about your brand
  • You and 2-4 of your team members can’t devote time for all the workshops and calls
  • You don’t want to work with us on a virtual board (Miro)

What do you get from all of this?

  • A lot of saved time & resources
  • An all-in-one digital branding package
  • All stakeholders aligned on the same goals, vision, and brand culture
  • Clarity of messaging - everyone will understand what you do & why
  • The accurate audience pain points
  • Momentum

Plus some tangibles:

  • Raw design files & user testing videos
  • Webflow website transfer & Custom Content Management System (CMS)
  • Brand Guidelines
  • Style Guide & Components Library
  • CMS, Editor, SEO, and Website Maintenance training videos
  • Brand Development Overseeing (2months)

FAQ

Why just 7 weeks? Won't it lower the quality?

Our process lasts a lot less than the ones most of the agencies use because we involve you and your team in our way of thinking so you can come up with ideas too.

Many agencies spend a lot of time learning about you and doing your part in the design process, which is to come up with solutions that you actually can provide instantly with the right way of thinking. We help you think as a creative with our process so you can come up with a solution in just 5 minutes per exercise during a workshop.

Because we involve you and also validate our solutions with the users at the end of the weeks, we’re able to focus on the right things and implement the things the audience actually cares about instead of launching and finding out that more changes are needed.

All of this shows why our process ensures higher quality.

How much do projects usually cost?

We have a MLE (minimum level of engagement) in place, which means all projects start at €15,000. This is the minimum figure that allows us to provide all our clients with a consistently high standard of work across multiple services, whilst allowing room for projects to change.

Why do you have a price range on the contact form if you have just one MLE?

Even if our MLE (minimum level of engagement) is €15,000 and we offer the same process and services for each project, our effort increases with the challenges we have to solve. We may need to collaborate with other service providers or use more expensive assets to help you solve your problems.

Choose the budget on the contact form that you’re willing to invest into solving your challenges, the one that you think it’s proportional to your goals.

How can you get so much done in just 7 weeks?

We do workshops instead of meetings. We don’t just call you and talk. We always look or write on sticky notes during workshops, then we vote and come up with the best solutions instantly.

Most of the design agencies take what you say and find possible solutions on their own. We find the best solution right there with you in ~5 minutes per exercise.

We also don’t take multiple projects at the same time. We work on one project at a time so we can better focus on you and get things done faster.

How can we all work together if we are remote?

At the beginning of the project, we have the first week to get ready, book all the calls and make sure everyone understands how everything works.

We use a virtual board (Miro) in which everyone has their own private workspace. It’s like real life, but digitally. We also do voice calls to talk and see one another during this time.

Also, all workshops are similar. You’ll get used to the process very fast.

I just want a new website. Why do you provide a full branding package?

To be better able to help you, we need to strategically position your organization away from the competition. This is why we provide web design along with branding services.

We’ll rethink everything to make sure you won’t need to do this again in the next 3 years.

How can we start a project together?

Great question! The first step is to get in touch by filling out our contact form. We’ll then get in touch for a free 30-minutes discovery call to talk about your goals, challenges, and to see if we’re a good fit. We’ll then proceed to share our cost estimate and schedule in a kickoff call with our teams. Once the paperwork is complete and the deposit payment is settled, we get to work!

What sectors do you specialize in?

We work primarily with social enterprises and socially responsible businesses.

We make especially great partners for companies who have a great cause and want to reach their audience better; those who struggle with explaining what they do to people; those who have an innovative idea, but struggle to explain it to partners and investors so that they can get the help they need to expand faster.

Our case study for Mindsum is a great example of the vital support and service we can offer to innovative social enterprises.
