We founded Grain in 2002 and specialise in branding and design for luxury, property and education. For any entrepreneur or entrepreneurial thinker to succeed, brand strategy needs to underpin all creative work. Therefore we start with creating or reworking strategy — or gaining a thorough understanding of existing strategy.
The next step may be naming a company or product, then creating your brand’s visual identity including brand guidelines. You then expand into digital areas such as an easily updateable and search engine optimised website, including responsive and ecommerce as needed; social media management; packaging; printed collateral and environments.
You benefit from working with our small and agile team of 8 talented people, always through direct contact with one of Grain’s owners.
