The first stage of any project is often the most overlooked one: asking “What is the problem we are trying to solve?” For example, some clients have decided they want an ad without having a clear picture of their their audience, the perceptions of their brand, and the best way to reach them. It’s important to begin at the beginning.

Once a strategy has been agreed upon, the design process can begin. Brandburst will often start work on a new project with brainstorming and a written creative brief. Next comes a Mood Board filled with visuals to guide the look and feel for the project. Headlines and placeholder text can be used at this stage to indicate the type style.

Professional copywriting enhances any project, and it can be done at this stage. Punchy headlines motivate audiences and tell stories. Text is written, edited and approved using data provided by the client. We understand that some project schedules and budgets don’t allow for web copy to be written before the design phase.

Web Design

User-centered web design that draws an audience and builds a brand.


Headlines that sizzle and body text that will actually get read. Usually.

Social Media

Posts, comments, and conversations that engage your brand audience.

Responsive Design

Why build a desktop and a mobile site when one site can reach all users?

Graphic Design

Because words, text, and ideas can tell amazing stories. Beautifully!

Brand Strategy

Sometimes you need to decide where you are going before you get in the car.
