Tone of voice development
When your brand 'speaks', what kind of sound comes out?
Your tone of voice is the way in which you speak to your audience.
You might be fun and quirky.

You might be wild and adventurous.
Or perhaps you're not quite sure yet.

These can then serve as your 'north star' as you navigate future communications. They give you something to fall back on when wondering how to run your business, and how to talk about it.

This is a very important question, and will involve a detailed look 'under the hood' of your brand.
When were you founded? Why? What need do you serve? How do you treat your customers? What do you do differently? What is the essence of your brand?
Remember: it isn't a given that a 'dull' sector requires a gloomy, serious brand. In the world of insurance, perhaps there is an opportunity to be the upbeat, quirky brand within your niche.
In the ultra-jolly world of children's toys and playthings, it may be that your approach is more focused on education and development.
