Thoughtful Strategy

What is brand direction?

Strategy is the formation and execution of a plan to reach a specific goal. The goal is to engage your audience by influencing how they perceive you or your output.

G.A.Projects helps organisations, and companies express their authentic selves to inspire emotion, and connection from their audience.

Brand strategy provides clarity of message and direction for actions, giving organisations the ability to grow while maintaining consistency and quality.

G.A works with organisations to define and establish a robust verbal definition of their brand, which then turns into the blueprint for their messaging and behaviour.

Basically, it’s a great piece of work to invest in first.

Divergent Ideas

Approach

Graham Anderson is a skateboarder and has been for 22 years. Although Graham draws on a wide range of subjects for inspiration, his creative approach is in no small part informed by his immersion in the subculture of skateboarding.

He’s interested in its outsider relationship to mainstream culture and its hybridity with other subcultures. He’s also interested in the social dynamics within the scene, its strong sense of community as well as its inclusive/exclusive nature. He’s also interested in its complex relationship to commerce, society, and the spaces we live.

As well as a deep interest in culture, skateboarding has instilled an explorative, progressive, determined ‘fall off and try again’ attitude in Graham, which permeates through his approach to life, G.A.Projects and its output.
