Welcome to Northstar
We’re an award-winning independent creative brand agency based in Manchester. Whether you’re a start-up or an established brand, we use brighter thinking and clearer insights to connect you with people, build your reputation and gain you real results.
How we can help you shine
Our team has a wide range of talents, skills and expertise, applied across a number of disciplines to help you build your brand.
Every brand should know where it’s going; and strategy, based on in-depth insights, can provide the map to get you there.
Like people, brands need to have character and personality, or they become invisible – and eventually disappear. We specialise in building positive relationships with your brand that last.
A logo is one thing, an identity another. We’ll build your visual identity around shapes, colours, imagery and tone of voice, so it’s consistent across every touchpoint.
This ever-changing world is constantly throwing up new opportunities to interact with your brand. We’ll help you take advantage of them.
From message to media, we’re well-versed in all the ways to make sure your brand gets in front of all the right people at the right time.
The Branding Process
Of course, every brand is unique. And while we approach every project afresh, we use a proven structure and methodology to get you where you want to be.
In some ways, the most important part of the process. It gives us a chance to find out more about you, and for you to see how we think. It outlines objectives, sets out plans and allows us both to ask important questions to make everything clearer.
Looking at competitors, researching the market, finding the key insights and looking at where you can gain a competitive advantage; it’s all part of formulating your strategy. And it’s where we can make a real difference.
While listening and thinking build the framework, here’s where we bring your brand to life. Creativity is essential in making you stand out and get your message heard, and the possibilities are endless.
Co-ordinating, organising and executing brilliantly is all part of the on-going service we provide, working closely with you to make sure everything goes smoothly.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say. So here are some examples of successful branding projects we’ve carried out for a wide range of different businesses and organisations.
