Corporate Communications

Enhance the customer experience across all brand touchpoints.

Akendi develops clear and compelling digital and print corporate communications materials that support and reinforce your brand and desired messaging – everything from financial and sustainability annual reports to internal communications, and from sell sheets to brochures. Our clients benefit from our strategic insight and in-depth experience in the development of high-impact creative solutions across a multitude of media and platforms.

ALIGN CREATIVE WITH STRATEGY

We deliver information in an approachable and visually appealing way to positively reinforce your brand and successfully convey your message. Our approach ensures creative is strategically aligned with your organisation’s vision and values.

CAPTIVATE & RESONATE

Working with stakeholders to identify key messages and the tone and manner of the communications, we get to the heart of what will captivate and resonate with your target audience and integrate these insights into an appropriate final design solution.

Where to start

We begin by talking to senior stakeholders to understand your vision, mission, objectives, existing visual assets, your brand and the tone, voice and ultimate feel you wish to achieve.

We may conduct research to examine current perceptions held about your organisation and to understand who your users are and may conduct a competitive analysis to uncover your strengths and weaknesses as compared to other brands in your space.

TIMING
The typical duration for a corporate communications initiative is 2-10 weeks.

how we do it

We develop several design concepts that uniquely and creatively express your brand promise.

Once agreement is established on a creative direction, we create comprehensive page layouts and establish designs for all page content, guiding messaging and the final illustrative and photographic approach.

what you get

Deliverables include a formal presentation of design concepts with a clearly defined aesthetic vision and the final print and/or online materials.

Visual design solutions, produced by consummate graphic designers who understand the user’s experience, deliver you a clear competitive edge.

Research has shown that ‘attractive things work better’, positively influencing how users respond to your communications materials, their impression of your brand and what they say to others about it.

Industry Experience

We have deep User Interface Design and User Experience in Mobility in a wide range of industries.
