Brand Proposition

As a leading Northwest creative agency we really do enjoy developing a brand proposition, it reaffirms the essence of a brand. We believe an effective brand proposition sits at the very core of a marketing strategy. A brand proposition provides a foundation for graphic designers to produce compelling creative designs, whilst remaining true to the brand identity. A brand proposition is the glue that holds together the brand message, creative design and marketing activity peeling apart the brand identity to produce compelling, consistent creative messages. The most successful brands have clear propositions, view some of our blogs, we'd be happy to send you an example of a brand proposition.

Brand Evolution

Perhaps the biggest challenge for established brands is the ability to recognise when a brand needs to evolve. Brand evolution is a critical stage in brand sustainability both in terms of logo development and adapting the brand proposition. Periodic brand evolution ensures a brand does not fade into obscurity. Brand evolution encompasses the current brand identity and future aspirations, current and future marketing trends. As a reputable Northwest digital marketing agency our creative marketing experience enables us to facilitate brand evolution, to deliver a compelling message executed with appropriate creative.

Social Media

Woven into the very fabric of today's marketing activity lies social media. An engaging communication tool, social media has revolutionised the opportunity to engage with customers and clients. The key to successful social media lies in knowing your target audience. Where can you find them online? What grabs their attention? How can you connect with them? Equally choosing the most appropriate social media tool is key to online engagement. Social media includes visual as well as written content, knowing which one to use comes from social media experience.

Social media has opened up new dialogue platforms, as a digital marketing agency we've learnt how to go far beyond the boundaries of website development. Although Studio 10 Design is a Northwest based digital agency our social media audience reaches the USA!

Digital Marketing

Against a backdrop of internet domination, digital now lies at the very centre of all marketing activity. For every business, strong digital marketing is essential in connecting with customers and clients alike. This includes any online activity, from emails to website development. As a digital marketing agency we ensure a unified approach is executed, in-line with business objectives. Harmonising creative with a compelling message in tune with the brand proposition is second nature to us. With some award winning campaigns, we relish the challenge of reaching beyond the norm. We enjoy trips from our Northwest graphic studio to London, especially to pick up an award!

Software Development

Our expertise clearly lies within creative graphics and website development, topped with strategic thinkers we're a formidable team. And yet we have another string to our bow, which is as equally strong as our creative talent and that's software development. Our software developer is a pioneering and highly reputable software developer. In his world anything is possible and everything achievable. Our software developer turns complex processes into simple solutions by utilising technology to producing bespoke software.

Direct Marketing

Direct marketing remains an engaging tool. Once the bedrock of activity direct marketing, executed with innovation still has the potential to generate and drive sales activity. Our experience and indeed creative ideas coupled with determination to go beyond traditional direct marketing has enabled us to produce award winning campaigns. Our creative designers stretch beyond the realms of graphic design to exceed client expectations time and time again. From our Northwest graphic studio we've established global connections to deliver new LCD direct marketing material at affordable prices.

Marketing Strategies

At the forefront of digital marketing, a brand proposition, creative, logo design or website development, should lie a strategy. Many small businesses embark on digital marketing or website development without recognising the need for a strategy. Some companies confuse marketing activity with a marketing strategy. We help many companies align their business objectives with marketing activity to produce a clearly defined strategy, which may include digital marketing, brand proposition, brand evolution, website development or direct marketing but which derives from a unified message.


Creative advertising can be the crucial element to business growth for many companies. Whether it's print or digital the ability to produce creative graphic design with an engaging message requires talent beyond creativity. Creative advertising requires strategic thinking in order to deliver a strong creative graphic which appeals to your target audience. Our creative advertising campaigns often span over 12 months, delivery compelling high quality creative without the expensive price tag.


Effective printed marketing material is essential for many companies. The balance of harmonising graphics with a coherent and compelling message is a talent evident within our award winning campaigns. We deliver innovative printed marketing material, understanding print technology ensures we produce creative but affordable results. Our global connections allow us to utilise innovative tools which don't cost the earth.

How do needs dictate the buying process?

How do needs dictate the buying process?

To achieve sustainable business growth companies need to engage with their target audience more effectively than ever before.  Understanding, their needs, wants, and their deeper desires which compel them to purchase.

Customers may think they need or want something, but sometimes they actually need or want something very different.  A Sales Director might spend hundreds of pounds to travel first class on a train, believing he needs the extra space to work, when really he wants the status of travelling first class.  








Successful customer engagement is driven by identifying and understanding company needs. Here are some different types of needs which drive a purchase decision.  Identifying these needs will determine the marketing and advertising direction.

  1. Immediate need.  These are short-term needs were immediate action is required. This type of customer will do very little research as speed is of the essence.  For example broken heating system during winter, a quick google search, and a phone call - the problem is solved.  Google ranking will therefore be important.  Advertisement may focus on fast efficient service.
  2. Long-term need.  Although these are real needs that must be responded to, immediate action is not required.  For example, house insurance is up for renewal next month.  This type of customer is more likely to do comparison research.  Price positioning and added value will therefore be important. Advertisement may highlight discounted rates for continuous renewals. 
  3. Perceived Needs.  These are needs we think we have but are not actual needs, ‘I need cosmetic surgery’.  This type of customer will be looking for expertise and assurance. Empathy and customer testimonials will therefore be important. Advertisement may be focused on quality and reputation, reference to improved esteem.
  4. Unrecognised Needs.  These are more desires rather than needs.  No one actually needs the latest ipad.  In this scenario it’s the product that has created the need.  Some individuals want the latest gadget to impress their peers.  It’s therefore important to emphasise innovation.  Advertisement may be focused on cutting edge technology, status and image.

Later we’ll discuss the things you should know about your target groups to stimulate engagement.

Now, I need a coffee - is that an immediate need or a perceived need!
