Just a few weeks ago, no one could have anticipated such uncertain times, and on such an unprecedented scale. Everyone is trying to maintain some kind of normality, whilst still navigating the everyday pressure of keeping a business ticking over, and trying to find a way forward.
Whilst these fast-moving and uncertain situations develop, we genuinely care about how this is affecting your business, so we want to help any way we can. In particular, we have some practical advice and tools to help your brand navigate this crisis.
Step 1: Stabilise
You are no doubt in the throes of adjusting to this new reality and doing everything you can to steady your ship. Here are a few pointers on some branding efforts during this initial period:
Step 2: Adapt
This is the area we can help most effectively. In particular, we use a design thinking tool and we would like to share it with you, free of charge — just email firstname.lastname@example.org. It will help you overcome problems, adapt to situations rapidly and design a way forward. It can be applied to any part of your business. For example:

Step 3: Rebound
Once you’ve adjusted to the ‘new normal’, you can prepare for the long term. Great brands build their equity during a crisis like this, you need to keep building your brand, protecting your employees and living your values. Doing so will mean you have a better chance of not only surviving this crisis but emerging ahead of your competitors.
We have created a simple yet powerful brand strategy framework that can help your brand rebound. Just get in touch for a chat and we can discuss the best way forward.
We recently recorded a Podcast to help Sussex businesses understand how branding can help them. In it, our brand director Michael Dale gives insights about how businesses can adapt and pivot in the current situation. Click here to check out our podcast.
