Experiment, reiterate, pivot–It's the mantra of early-stage startups. Chances are that your brand has been through a whirlwind of changes. As your startup matures and you prepare for growth, it's time to gain clarity and direction.
At the Phoenix Brand Consultancy®, we offer a rebranding method designed for pre-seed and seed-stage startups. The Phoenix Flaming Startup is rooted in evidence, collaboration and speed. We’re going through three phases:
First, we collect data, interview founders and loyalists, and check on the competition. After the audit comes the actual strategy in the form of an intensive two-day workshop.
We align product-market fit, differentiate from competitors, and reconnect with your vision. We'll also carve out a creative leitmotif to guide the design and naming process.
Creativity always requires a healthy dose of uncertainty–that's how we create remarkable names.
We’ll also make sure you’re on the safe side by screening for trademark popularity. We also vet domain availability and cultural and linguistic viability.
We ask: What does your unique position demand of the brand today? And then, we apply it visually in a new, contemporary way. We uplift existing brand designs and push them to be more recognizable.
It's the more sensitive approach to rebranding and a long-term investment for your startup.

Fantastic! The next step would be to schedule an initial call with us here. The purpose of this call is to confirm that we’re a good fit to work together, discuss the project timeline (depending on your goals and our availability) and then we’ll send over the proposal for you to sign.
Our services are designed for pre-seed and seed stage startups with $500K-$2M in investment. After a call and talking about your needs and goals, we'll make you an offer with detailed pricing. A general rule of thumb is to spend about 5–15% of your total startup budget on a branding project.
Yes, we offer startup-friendly payment plans. We'll tell you more about your options during our call.
We offer significant price advantages for marginalized founders to help them navigate the funding gaps. You'll find more information about our pricing structure here.
That's a great question. Book a strategy consultation before a bigger project. That is the best way to find out if we like and trust each other.
No. But we prioritize startups with at least one female or non-binary co-founder or c-level executive. These marginalized groups of entrepreneurs are widely underfunded, overworked, and undervalued. We dedicate our energy to them. We're happy to connect you with highly-qualified professionals to join your c-ranks.
The Phoenix Brand Consultancy is based in Munich Germany (come see our beergardens ;)). We work remotely and collaborate with startups from Europe and the US.
