    Project Kickoff Competitive ReviewNaming Strategy

    PHASE 1Landscape Analysis & Review

    Identify and understand existing name strategy,

    positioning, market research, potential for growth.

    Analyze how competing brands are presented, viewed, named, and accepted in the

    target market.

    Uncover insights and define objectives with key

    project stakeholders.

    Our team will ask a battery of questions in order to understand:

    What types of messages should the brand portray to existing and

    future customers?

    Who do you currently consider to be your customer base? The

    future customer base?

    What type of name do you believe would have the greatest impact

    (i.e., descriptive, made-up, non-English, and/or a real word)?

    Naming Brief Final Candidate ListName Creation

    PHASE 2Name Development

    Identify the framework for developing the brand name

    candidates, based on the insights from the naming strategy.

    Analyze the name candidates with regard to structural analysis, trademark, domain, and common law availability and harvest a short

    list of ten to twelve final candidates.

    Uncover naming candidates through three separate

    iterations of deep source mining and ideation exercises.

    A proper name and brand strategy hinges upon discovering the authentic essence and purpose of the brand across all of its receptionsits brand ethos.

    Name development will be performed through an iterative process. The first iteration will contain thirty to thirty-five brand name candidates. Our creative team will present each name and identify patterns of words or styles upon which to expand.

    We will continue to develop lists of potential brand names until we generate a finalized candidate list of ten to twelve mutually agreed-upon brand names to take into Phase 3.

    Our Approach Creative Process

    Using a combination of deep inquiry pursuits and ideation exercises, we seed and harvest a short list of name candidates that express the brands ethos across a comprehensive range of associations, connotations and evocations, in line with the conceptual target we have established.
