Creating and launching a brand?
In recent years we have worked with a lot of FMCG start-ups. It's great creating new exciting brands but we noticed clients often asked the same questions towards the end of a project... What next?
We realised we could design these beautiful brands but didn't really know what happened when they left us. What is route-to-market, how do we get buyers to take notice, what about social media, marketing, PR????
In 2018 we decided to address the gap in our knowledge and create our own brand. Matcha was something we were passionate about as a product, and it was a growing part of the tea sector.
Most brands on the market were very much in the health food area, we decided to create a more lifestyle oriented product. We went through a full branding and design process, which can be seen here.
We wanted to aim high, our target was to enter the market via a high end retailer. In 2019, we launched UKIYO Matcha exclusively in London's Selfridges. It is also now available on Amazon and various other independent boutiques. Ukiyo is also available across Europe and in 2020 we take the brand to the US market.
We would love to work with you to create your brand and help you bring it to market. If you would like to talk give us a call on 020 8989 2501 or email us here.
