Farmer D

Brand Messaging | Marketing Strategy


Farmer D, a farm community planning, design and activation firm, was looking to grow their team and develop a solid set of values and messaging for their company. Brilliant conducted a virtual workshop with the team and created a brand messaging framework outlining Farmer D's vision, mission, values, elevator pitch, key messages and proof points. This framework is used in all their communication efforts from the website and proposals to their public speaking efforts.


Brilliant brought the new messaging to life through a strategic marketing plan. By conducting interviews and surveying Farmer D's target audience -- developers and private landowners -- Brilliant was able to gain insights on the target audiences needs and wants, and create strategies and channels that would be most effective for Farmer D's marketing.

Testimonial
Emily and Mikaela were incredibly easy to work with. They pulled so much information together and crafted a clear messaging framework for us to grow into. This is helping us to clarify how we want to grow and who we want to grow with as a business. It was a great experience, not only to have a final framework, but also for our team to work together to help craft it. Kasi Munoz
