Creative and Design

The BIG IDEA, great creative and design shows itself as a matter of process during step-2 of ruminate, illuminate, advocateā„¢.

'Illuminate' is the stage where the brand comes to life from distillation of the brands newly discovered character, personality and brand story. It occurs only after the brand space is fully researched and the brands attributes are identified (step1- 'ruminate').

With the brands 'inner core' identified, our senior creative designers have terms of reference to unleash their artistry. The creative team develop the brand platform, a visual expression for the brand including development of name, brand hierarchy, iconography, imagery, look and feel, tone of voice, color palette, etc. They then integrate the newly developed brand platform with creative expression to form an idea, hopefully it's the BIG IDEA.

Often, inspiration for the BIG IDEA comes from our clients, being closest to their brand. The BIG IDEA is a creative expression that may manifest in one or all media formats from print to digital. Finished brand collateral is designed to support one of the most virulent forms of all rural communication; engaging farmers, agronomists and resellers to actively advocate your brand to others. Our guiding principals include: simplicity, authenticity, relevance and timeliness.

We are privileged with the calibre of our designers at RuralBrandā„¢. Each have graduated from fine art to graphic design with more than 20 years commercial experience. Each has worked creative from small to multinational accounts and even run their own design studios.
