Fuel powerful growth with a brand development strategy.
What is brand development? A fully developed brand forms the foundation of your business. Our brand development strategies refine and document the intangible qualities that make up your brand. Your company’s purpose, mission, vision, values, culture, positioning, voice, and visual identity will all align and become the most valuable assets to your company. Without a strong brand foundation, you’ll fail to make meaningful connections with the people you are trying to serve.
At Waypost, we offer several in-depth brand development services that we can execute individually or together.

Brand Purpose Development
Building a great brand relies on two principles:
- Know your brand purpose.
- Infuse that brand purpose into every aspect of your business.
Effective brand development always begins with purpose. Every successful brand has a powerful purpose behind it. Your brand’s purpose is why you get up every day and provide the good or service your company offers.
Brand purpose development with Waypost begins with finding your company’s “why.”
Why does your company exist? What services do you provide? What differentiates you from your competitors? Why do your clients/customers trust you? Why do they choose you? Do you have a healthy company culture? Does what you do matter?
A brand purpose exercise is an extensive, candid process to determine your company’s strengths, weaknesses, and aspirations. We then highlight misaligned values and define areas of growth potential. We use the good things about your business to inform our strategy for realigning every part of your brand toward a common purpose.
Some questions during the brand purpose development process can be challenging to answer and often elicit strong feelings. But this transparency will ultimately lead to a more substantial brand purpose and growth-driven results.
Once your “why” is determined, we craft a unique brand purpose statement. We then help you articulate that statement by establishing a brand voice and documenting your company mission, vision, and values. We take the resulting documentation into all of your future marketing, sales, and support strategies.

Custom Logo Design
Your brand is more than just your company name. Your visual identity plays a vital role in your brand development and reputation. With this in mind, we don’t just produce pretty logos that are all flash and have no substance.
Waypost takes a strategy-first approach to logo development. We discover what your company stands for and what unique value you provide. The brand identities we develop reflect our drive to treat every client’s business as if it were our own. Each logo we design represents a brand we are proud to support.
We provide a comprehensive brand style guide with every identity package. This guide includes color palettes, fonts, patterns, and everything else you need to maintain a unified visual identity company-wide.
