We specialise in strategic branding and packaging solutions for FMCG, retail and corporate brands. Our experience ranges from brand identity, evolution/revolution branding, new product development, range extensions, brand style guides and POS materials. Our personalised service keeps pace with today’s tight time frames. All projects are closely managed from strategy, design development, through to the production of artwork and ongoing brand style guides. Tweak’s extensive technical knowledge and strong relationships with printers improves speed to market, while reducing potential issues and additional costs clients often incur during the pre-press process. Tweak’s commitment to our clients is further demonstrated through additional value services i.e. complementary artwork copies and online PDF library.
At Tweak, we develop long-term relationships with our clients that allow us to understand the brand vision and deliver consistent branding across every touchpoint – from packaging design to point of sale (POS).
That’s why we design innovative and interactive POS displays that work hard to communicate key messages, are visually eye-catching and effective at engaging customers in-store.
Tweak focus on strategic ideas that engage your target consumer and complement your brand values. Establishing insightful positioning strategies is a key element in achieving effective design that connects with your consumer.
We work with you or your research company to uncover real consumer insights that reveal ways to communicate through emotions, interests and real needs.
We also review the way a brand is positioned within its visual environment and competitive set. Assess your brand’s equity and weaknesses to improve the brand image. Explore your brand’s dialogue with its consumer to find ways of interacting on a regular basis and strengthen brand awareness.
We work collaboratively with you to build our knowledge of your brand’s history to shape its future success. Having clearly defined strategy planning, design development and production processes ensure we consistently provide high quality solutions and service.
