Work Process


Extract Core Sample

Through an in-depth discovery session, we dig deep into what makes your startup truly different. We extract that essence and use it to define your brand's vision.

Analyze Raw Material

Most of the time, a startup's first attempt at branding is broad, inconsistent and doesn't speak directly to the desired audience. Analyzing the information you provide us is important, it helps us keep what's important and get rid of the rest.

Plan Best Approach

Even with our systematized Brand-Centric Strategy Blueprint, the needs of every startup are different. So we adapt the scope of the project to your business goals, the nature of your product/service as well as the characteristics of your audience.

Build The Brand

For a brand to come to life, the execution has to be flawless. We like to say that "Strategy without design is faceless, and design without strategy is blind". Here at uniqium™ we make sure to provide you with the perfect balance.
