The Counselling Collective is a new business offering counselling to people from all walks of life. The Counselling Collective is committed to providing genuine care, understanding, acceptance and confidentiality. Their focus is on building mutual trust and respect in a safe, supportive environment.
As a small start-up The Counselling Collective required:
- A marketing strategy,
- A website,
- Business cards, flyers, social media banner.
The start-up package and design needed to:
- Reflect the values of The Counselling Collective,
- be a collaborative process,
- appeal to a wide variety of people who may require a counsellor.
Here’s what Michelle from The Counselling Collective had to say about the brief:
Quite simply I was overloaded and had so much going on that I knew if the marketing and decisions were left up to me I’d still be writing ideas down and not knocking them into any real shape, and not coming up with some form of strategy to get myself up and out into the wider public domain.
And that’s where Brugel Creative comes in.
Our Business Development Manager designed a purpose-driven marketing strategy tailored to The Counselling Collective’s needs.
Our Designers, Copywriter, and Technical Team designed a website which told The Counselling Collective’s story: their reason for being, why people may need counselling, and the different approaches to counselling.
Here’s what Michelle from The Counselling Collective had to say about the solution:
Working together on the business cards was lots of fun. When they arrived via courier, and I started offering them out to people, the response was just as I had hoped it would be. I was so excited by the positive response!
The website development process helped me to refine and galvanise my reasons for wanting to go into business and what I wanted other people to know about me and The Counselling Collective.
Our Designers took the Marketing Strategy we’d developed, and in consultation with The Counselling Collective, began to create the organisation’s visual identity.
The logo and marketing assets were developed to build a strong and consistent brand presence.
Here’s what Michelle from The Counselling Collective had to say about the design:
By keeping me constantly in the loop – by checking and offering a variety of end user products – website, business cards, flyers banners, etc. and with the expertise of copywriting and design and website experts, I only had to give minimal feedback. The whole process was collaborative.
If you want people who know their stuff, who you can trust and who will take the time to get to know you and your needs/business, and who will turn around the end product efficiently and quickly these are your go to people. Its personalised and you are made to feel like part of their family as they get to know what you’re about and how they can best help you turn your concepts and ideas into reality that will inevitably bring you business.
