With our RKD ICONIC BRAND BUILDING® process we cover every area of brand creation and development. It is the roadmap we use to reach the high standards we set for ourselves. We subdivide our projects into four essential process steps: BRAND ANALYSIS, BRAND STRATEGY, BRAND CONCEPT and BRAND EXPERIENCE. Each step provides clearly defined results, which we then align with our clients in intermediate meetings. Depending on the task at hand, various strategic tools are also utilized, which have been developed and refined by Roman Klis Design over the years. The goal, however, always remains the same: The rapid and successful completion of our projects for the maximum asuccess of our clients.
