The 1st Question to Ask When Considering a Brand Refresh

Brand Worksheet – Question Number 1

If you’re thinking about the state of your brand and considering building, refreshing, or refining, the first question we ask is:

What is the project you are thinking about?

This might sound like common sense, and at the surface, this question may sound simple to answer. But taking a moment to put some thought into your answer will clarify understanding and get everyone on the same page. Let’s take a closer look at this question.

Ask Why? Why? and Why?

Some of the most meaningful answers we find are revealed when we ask “why” three times. Simon Sinek’s well-known Ted Talk describes how to get to the why, which is at the center of what he calls the Golden Circle. The first question is usually answered with what the customer wants, and the second question is often answered with how the customer wants it or the format they envision this project will be delivered. These answers are great, but it’s the answer to the third question that can identify why the customer wants this, which is the answer that offers the most helpful insight.
