Why would anyone dare to pass judgment over your brand by introducing a series of simple questions? Well… you are right. There are no easy answers, no universal guidelines, no brand horoscopes, nor instant solutions. We can’t tell you which character from a book your brand is, but what we can tell already, that there is a lot that can be achieved to improve your brand.

Answering our brief questionnaire must have been quite a facile exercise but a one that proved there is focus and vision behind your brand. I guess the next question is: What is the next challenge your brand awaits? As we are all ears and excited to undertake the challenge together. Excited about the future of this benevolent acquaintance. NECON.

About

To design communication is to understand what abouts are about; to find out what abouts are doing wrong. Where, why, and what about? And finally: how about doing it right?

That’s what Necon is about.

We are a branding agency/communication design agency/identity consultancy? Something like that.

Since 2007 we’ve worked with businesses big and small on five continents, never deterred by longitudes, latitudes, cultures or challenges. Renowned and awarded for the quality of our work, we’ve never stopped improving and readjusting our process, remaining true to the ascertained steps: analysis > strategy > design.

We believe that well designed communication is a milestone in a company’s life, creating foundation for coherent brand experience, far stronger than yet another “stand-out” step one can trip over.

Whereabouts

Here and there. We got inspired and determined to make the world around us a bit more beautiful and a lot more intelligent. From a small design studio, we’ve expanded into a communication consultancy reaching all over the globe. Timezones have lost their significance, but we’ve never gone far from each other. The team works as close as possible at every stage of every assignment.
