Brand Strategists + Creative Professionals Since 2006

SHAPE work with ambitious companies to drive long-term profitable growth through a tailored brand development programme.

We're a strategic brand development and creative design agency based in Dublin, Ireland.  Our team is made up of skilled brand strategists, creative designers, project managers and support personnel and associates.  No assignment we work on is ever the same. That’s why we select and tailor the best possible team for you, depending on the specific requirements of your project.

"We’re neither puffed-up consultants, fancy-assed, self-absorbed designers nor tame keyboard jockeys.  We're business people just like you.  We see our professional work as always function-first.  Creative design should support and deliver a solid brand strategy. Let’s diagnose before prescribing.”

About SHAPE

We're actually "poachers turned gamekeepers" 

Before establishing our brand agency, many of us worked in senior marketing roles as clients of some of Dublin and London's top design houses.  This experience gave us a deep insight into client-side requirements and role pressures.  With this knowledge, we felt we could do a better job in terms of effectiveness and client care. That's why we founded SHAPE Brand Development.

 

Have we succeeded?  Yes, we believe we have. 

But don't take our word for it – see what our clients say. You'll see a number of their testimonials on this site.

Every day brings a different challenge, and we bloody love it!

Why Hire SHAPE?

Because our unique development services will grow your brand based on solid commercial principles. You don't engage an agency like SHAPE just because you want to look nicer. You hire us to improve your performance or fix the areas of your brand that aren't working.  It's our job to analyse what's wrong and provide you with the best solutions to succeed. When your brand succeeds, we succeed also. It’s why we treat your business as if it were our own.

What's with the name SHAPE?

Your brand image comprises of so many different elements - your name, logo, brochures, website, packaging, annual report, uniforms, signage, customer experience (CX), etc.  When each of these components is put together, they form the shape of your brand.  Our goal is to ensure all of your touchpoints appear consistent and align seamlessly to create that perfect Shape...  

The Shape of Your Brand.
