Brand Design Consulting

The brand design consultancy is the essential starting point for each of our flanking projects. This first step creates your 'Brand Code', a strategic document that defines the essence, distinctive features and key values of your brand. The Brand Code guides every subsequent design, communication and positioning choice, ensuring consistency and authenticity in every aspect of your business project.

Product Development

Product development is the beating heart of our coaching service. In this phase, we work closely with you to bring your creative vision to life. Through in-depth research of inspirations, trends and materials, we explore the endless possibilities of fashion design together. Our experts will guide you in selecting the most suitable fabrics, defining the cuts and details that will make each garment unique and irresistible. With passion and expertise, we transform your idea into a market-ready collection, with attention to every detail and capable of winning the hearts of your audience.

We create your brand 'in a small way

We at Be a Designer have worked closely for years with international designers and creatives to find an approach to building a fashion brand that would work even 'small' with limited budgets and also allowed young designers to create and sell their collections on the market.

What all the greatest designers in history have in common is that they have been not only great creators but also great entrepreneurs and have combined their artistic sensitivity, their mastery of taste and their research into the choice of fabrics, patterns and cuts in a skilfully blended alchemy: the creation of a brand.
