Atomicdust is a branding agency that combines creativity and business strategy to make brands more meaningful to people.

The Atomicdust Branding Program

During our more than 20 years in this business, we’ve seen a thing or two.

And when it comes to branding, our key observation is this: if your business is like most, your customers don’t care as much about your brand as you’d like.

That’s ok. We can change that.

At Atomicdust, we give people reasons to believe in brands again. We leverage design and critical thinking to help you outwit the competition, strengthen your mission and make meaningful connections with customers that last a long, long time.

We’ve packaged this process in our branding program. Our formalized approach has helped hundreds of businesses express the best version of who they are, and how they are unique in the market.

A Program to Solve Real-World Problems

Branding is much more than logos and pretty pictures. Our branding program can help you overcome some of your biggest challenges.

How the Branding Program Works

Atomicdust’s four- to six-week branding program provides the foundation for all of our strategy and creative work, and is a mixture of consulting, marketing, writing and design.

The process will help you clarify business values, spark new thinking about your organization’s market position and see things from a whole new perspective.

Through interviews with key employees and stakeholders, we’ll help you gain insight and develop a brand that resonates with your most important target audiences.

Brand research

Brand Research

To get to know your organization inside and out, we’ll speak with employees, partners, investors and other key stakeholders whose insights could inform our recommendation. These simple interviews often uncover new and surprising insights, and go a long way toward helping our clients achieve internal alignment and adoption of the final recommendation.

Brand Strategy

We see strategy as a roadmap, and in the brand strategy phase we’ll look at how your brand – or brands – touch your core audiences, and how we can make each touchpoint more powerful and memorable.

Brand Positioning and Language

We’ll create a clear, concise language that skips the industry buzzwords and embraces what makes you different. This can easily become your “elevator pitch.” During this stage, we also create a brand narrative that captures the purpose behind what you do, and an ownable tagline.

Logo & Visual Identity

Building on your new brand position and messaging platform, our initial creative expressions will reflect your vision for the future. And because your brand is more than a logo or a website, we’ll also provide a roadmap that shows you where your brand lives in the market, where it should go, and how to get there.
