Case studies

At times it felt like a therapy session, but that’s a good thing right?

We knew we did great work and a lot of it, but we needed to boil that down to something that said who we are as much as what we do. It needed to be simple and clear, but also bold and exciting.

Felicity was very clear about how she worked and asked brilliant questions to get the answers she was looking for — and ultimately the help we needed.

Now we have a brand language strategy, we have a clear set of guidelines that everyone can refer to and something that gives us inspiration when we’re putting together any set of words no matter the audience.

We went in looking for help with our tone of voice and came out with a lot more!

Working with Felicity was an absolute joy.

She gave us an opportunity to talk through our way of thinking and our complex messaging, and listened to the issues we had.

When Felicity came back to us with her finished work, it was exactly what we had been looking for and already its implementation is making a big difference to the way we work.

We would thoroughly recommend any organisation who is looking to develop a brand language strategy to reach out and work with Felicity.

I immediately felt calm, seen and heard with Felicity.

I have found it difficult in the past to articulate exactly what I do. Felicity provided a safe space for curiosity and to gain clarity on my brand voice.

She drew out my passion, my joy for my work and I felt empowered by my own voice. I now feel I can speak about my brand confidently and take the next steps towards achieving my goal of supporting multi-faceted creatives.

I launched The Brand Language Lab because after many years as a freelance copywriter, I'd noticed too many clients were investing in generic, tick-box tone of voice guides that didn’t benefit their business.

I knew I could do a better job and develop brand language strategies to help move businesses forward and achieve tangible results.

They're designed to capture your brand’s distinctive verbal identity, clarify how you communicate and make every word count.
