Retail brand development

Powerful retail brand development made our client more recognisable nationally, leading to increased sales and recruitment opportunities.


Retail brand development requires more than skill and experience – it’s about knowing exactly who your customers are and how to earn their loyalty. Rather than treating consumers as a target to be hit, we help clients see them as individuals whose purchasing decisions reflect emotional needs and values.

To help national retailer, Home Bargains, bridge the gap between “a brand” and “my brand”, we delivered a comprehensive retail brand development strategy built on establishing connections with internal and external audiences. Our creative team knew that conveying key messages wasn’t enough, so we worked to build customer loyalty across a variety of traditional and digital platforms – ultimately strengthening awareness and boosting engagement.


As the second largest independent grocer in the country and one of the UK’s fastest-growing discount retailers, Home Bargains faced enormous competition. Stocking a wide range of competitively priced high street brands, the company wanted customers to feel good about shopping in their stores and associate it with delivering value for money. Home Bargains also wanted to extend its brand to the digital space with an attractive and friendly ecommerce website that mirrored the in-store experience.Home Bargains Ecommerce Web Design Cheshire


Updating and refreshing the company’s distinctive logo, we aspired to develop a brand that validated the perception of “Top brands, Bottom prices” in the minds of consumers. It was important to help Home Bargains sell a positive in-store experience, so we focused on fresh, simple design that was friendly and appealing. This creative approach addressed the customer’s need to feel comfortable shopping at a discount retailer and increased the store’s visibility and appeal.

Seen by millions of people on UK roads every day, Home Bargains’ cargo trucks were a perfect opportunity to reinforce the company’s brand presence. Plus, the attractive and distinctive company logo was almost exactly the same proportions as the sides of their vehicles. By wrapping the vehicles with the company colours and logo, we created a low-cost advertising resource that effectively disseminated the company’s messaging.

Our creative and digital teams developed everything from point of sale materials for in-store promotions to a new ecommerce website that showcased the company’s vast range of products. This ensured that the online customer experience was consistent with Home Bargains’ store image, enhancing key messages and validating positive perceptions about the brand.

We continued to identify opportunities to extend the brand and connect with customers, such as designing and implementing an email marketing strategy following the launch of the Home Bargains ecommerce website.
