The experience gained during the process of working with hundreds of businesses and brands – differing in size, market, and needs – has created a profound insight into the real-world examples of what works and what doesn’t. The problem for clients is that this experience and insight can only be earned – with time.
Luckily, Design Squad does have ‘legally acquired’ Experience and Insight For Sale!

The Problem Solving Starts Here
Think Thru These Questions:
1) Situational Analysis – Where are you? (market trends, competition, consumer trends, media trends)
2) Objectives – Where do you want to go?
3) Audience Analysis – Who are you talking to, what keeps them up at night and how can you better help?
4) Positioning – What is your point of difference and why is that better in the minds of your customers?
