Verbal branding and tone of voice

This is where my passion lies. I love carving out a personality with words. Because to do that you have to get to the heart of things. You have to know who you are, what you represent, how you want to be seen. Digging deep: it's one of my favourite things to do.

FarmaForce's visual identity was edgy and distinctive, but it's tone of voice wasn't. My role was to bring the TOV up to speed with the visuals, to create a strong presence that stands out from the crowd.

Advert for COPD Day campaign (B2B)

Advert for COPD Day campaign (B2B)

The tone of this piece is quite grave. COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a life-long breathing condition. But research has emerged to help sufferers better treat their condition and make their remaining days as comfortable as possible. It's that new treatment option that provides some hope in a grave situation. So the tone is clinical yet hopeful.

Excerpt from Parent Guide for a paediatric healthcare product called Pixi (B2C)

The audience is parents of children who have illnesses that require them to wear breathing masks while they sleep, so the tone is intended to be informative, but also warm and reassuring to parents going through a difficult time. The parent guide was also accompanied by a story book for children, about a little girl who also need to wear a mask; a Pixi soft toy; and Pixi colouring books for kids. So all in all, the marketing for this product was understanding and supportive.
