What is a creative agency?
What is Percept’s definition of a creative agency?
A creative agency helps an organisation formulate a message about itself and its products or services. A creative agency (also known as a; design agency, graphic design agency, brand agency, brand design agency, branding agency, marketing agency or advertising agency), such as Percept, then takes this message and communicates it to the target audience in a creative way that will achieve a favourable response.
The creative agency (or design agency, brand agency etc.), such as Percept, can develop and execute strategic branding through a wide variety of mediums, including branding, packaging design, graphic design, marketing communications and digital campaigns, just to name a few.
The creative agency also develops strategic branding in the form of positioning and brand identity, and a communication strategy of what the brand’s message will be, and what channel, medium and creative output should be used to best reach the target audience.
A good creative agency will also work as a brand agency to realise both short term brand identity and brand communications goals e.g. visual image and product release publicity as well as long-term strategic branding goals e.g. brand recognition, awareness, engagement and loyalty.
What is the role of an integrated creative agency?
Branding, communication design, website design and advertising are essential undertakings for any business, big or small. But as a business owner or marketing manager, you often don’t have the time nor resources to coordinate campaigns between separate creative agencies. This is where an integrated creative agency, such as Percept comes in.
If you’re assessing rebranding agencies, we could be a good fit because Percept is an integrated creative agency, we are able to offer a broad range of branding, graphic design and visual communication services (see our full list of creative and design services).
Percept has brand design expertise in both print communication and digital media. We are also connected to a wide network of external suppliers too. We have many contacts who possess specialist skill-sets, that are easily accessible as an extension of our team. The fact that we have worked with them for many years, makes it easy for us to provide additional services in specialised areas such as branding strategy, video, animation, printing, radio etc. Our access to this diverse team of multi-talented professionals works to your advantage because we manage the entire process. Percept has branding consultants, brand designers, communication designers, packaging designers, creative designers, digital designers and website designers. This means if you work with the integrated creative agency, Percept, you have access to infinite creative services, all from one source.
Why work with a creative agency?
Branding, digital design, communication design, packaging design and advertising are very dynamic areas, which means that a design agency has to be on its toes to make sure a client is across all areas at once. If a client uses different agencies for each service things become messy, alternatively, bringing elements in-house won’t produce optimum results. Providing more than a graphic design agency, a creative agency will work closely with your internal marketing team on all your branding and brand communications, to streamline all these outputs, making life easier for everyone.
• It’s Economical – For any business, regardless of size, cutting costs has a direct and positive impact on profitability. By working with a creative agency, you avoid the costs that come with employing in-house personnel or multiplying agency costs by using various providers like branding agencies, packaging designers, communication designers and website design agencies.
• More Creativity – A creative agency has a professional team of creatives; whose job is to take your brief and design a solution that will benefit your business. In reality, a team of professional creatives collaborating on an idea in the one design studio will produce the best outcome. Even where you have an original idea, a creative agency such as Percept – Brand Design, will make it richer in a way that will resonate with your audience, achieving superior results. You not only get better ideas but more of them, when you engage a single, external creative agency team.
• Specialist Skills – A well-established, full-service creative agency like Percept has dedicated specialists in different areas that are essential in creating a coherent voice across your branding, digital design, communication design and advertising campaigns. This includes brand strategists, creative directors, graphic designers, packaging designers, website designers, digital developers, photographers, copywriters, brand designers and many other technical specialties. Engaging Percept as your creative agency lets you access these specialists as part of one team, instead of managing separate contracts for branding agencies, design agencies, packaging design agencies, website design agencies etc, which can become a coordination headache.
• Time Saving – Do you have an upcoming product release and need to make changes in the copy for the brochures and website? This is an example of the unexpected that is often seen in marketing communications and advertising campaigns. A full-service creative agency can make these changes quicker and more efficiently than you can, courtesy of all production coming from the one creative studio.
• Objective Point of View – While you may have a biased view or attachment to something, a creative agency approaches a design branding brief from a neutral point of view, based on information and research. You get objective and more useful feedback from an independent creative agency, although this may sometimes be raw and honest, it will eventually help your business achieve its objectives and goals on your design branding brief.
• Winning Motivation – For the Percept creative agency Sydney, success with one client means positive publicity and validation. For us, we think of our clients’ successes as being directly pegged to our own success. This is because we are heavily invested in our clients’ branding, graphic design, website design, packaging design, digital design, marketing communications and advertising projects. A client who does not see successful results, will not become a return customer, nor will they recommend us to others. This is why we push for every brand design project that comes out of Percept’s design studio to have successful outcomes, which is a win for everyone involved.
• Flexibility in Engagement – You can easily change creative agencies if you don’t see positive results with your present partner. While businesses and creative agencies like Percept maintain long-term relationships, actual contracts are only on a per-project basis. This means that successive positive results is the only way creative agencies such as Percept sustain client relationships.
• Free Publicity – Creative agencies reach a very wide audience. Percept, for example, in conjunction with all of our clients, has a potential audience of millions on social media. When design branding projects get completed and are publicised, this free exposure can spark increased engagement with your company because of the exposure its design branding had been given.
• Always On Trend – Following the latest trends in branding, graphic design, packaging design, visual communications, advertising, digital design and website design is part of Percept’s job as a creative agency. A creative agency helps you remain relevant and appealing to your target audience, meaning all creative outputs from design branding to packaging design will resonate and be better received by your market.
• Strategic Brand Growth – Creative agencies can help your brand grow steadily in awareness and recognition through long-term creative campaigns. Having everything produced with cohesion from the one source across strategic branding, brand identity, packaging design, communication design, website design and digital design builds a consistent public image driven from a united branding strategy. This works positively for growing brand trust through loyalty and sustainable brand growth in both print and online environments.
What makes a successful creative agency?
Some factors that have contributed to the success of our design studio include;
• High Level Creativity – Clever thinking and originality in execution is crucial in putting across a message in a way that gets noticed and is well-received by the audience. Percept is a brand agency that has worked with leading companies on thousands of branding and graphic design projects that fit this criteria. You can view our work and read the case studies for a detailed explanation on why each project was a success.
• Strategic Thinking – Creative branding without a branding strategy is a waste of time and money, and it can also be detrimental to your business. You should work with a creative agency that has a team of branding consultants and critical thinkers, because it’s the strategic branding work that will determine whether the creative execution is effective in terms of the business goals of a project.
• Production Capacity – A creative agency should offer a range of services such as branding, graphic design, packaging design, visual communication design and website design. Percept is a design agency that offers this complete package from brand identity to digital design, with a multi-talented team and technical resources. It is also important that the Percept creative agency has a good traffic management procedure to ensure our brand designers, packaging designers, communication designers and website designers can meet the demands of a fast-pace environment that Australian design agencies experience, such as meeting deadlines, budgets, juggling multiple branding design, packaging design, visual communication, and digital design jobs at once and allocating the right talent for each project.
• Good Communication Skills – A creative agency helps your company speak with your target audience, so obviously communication design skills must be a strength. Furthermore, good communication skills are key to good project management. For a branding design project to run smoothly and arrive at the desired outcome, a creative agency should always maintain effective communications with clients. This can be to get input and feedback, adding value to the project, or it can be ensuring everyone has clarity on what is happening, when and why.
• Results Focused – Tracking the performance of branding, marketing communications and advertising efforts is crucial in order to modify what is not working and keep what works best. Percept is a creative agency that prides itself on giving its clients the best value for money whether it is a brand identity, communication design, packaging design or website design project. We focus on being an effective design agency Sydney and enjoy developing creative solutions and designing outcomes that our clients are happy with. Although we’re even more focused on being among the design agencies in Sydney that can deliver companies a return on their investment in the creative services that design agencies such as Percept provide, like brand naming, brand design, packaging design and digital design.
