It’s time to liberate your brand
The Chemistry Works will get under the skin of your brand and reveal your true brand essence.
AN AWARD-WINNING AGENCY, CREATED TO GET TO THE CORE OF YOUR BRAND ESSENCE.
Our rigorous patented Tri-Mid® system, designed by Strategy Director, Gill Heppell, strips your brand bare; then, through a unique and intelligent workshop process, exposes the fundamental assets of your brand.
Our tried and tested process focuses on the three vital commercial pillars of your brand:
From here, we can set about restructuring, reshaping and rebuilding your brand using the outputs from the workshop. This vital intelligence informs the rebuilding process and generates a new brand blueprint.
This will now open the door to a fresh, motivational marketing approach making you go down roads you may have never considered before!
Manage your brand and you manage your business strategy. Your brand is the power source that delivers your strategy – they work in tandem. Brands are your engine for growth and profit – how you choose to drive is all about making the right choices. But you need vitality to survive in the market.
Get to the core of your brand. Uncover what really makes it successful and then you’re in a position to define the way forward.
Whether you are a Consumer Product, a Business or even in need of Personal Branding, this works!
No brand exists in isolation. It is owned by a business, managed by its people and offered to a market to be chosen by its customers and consumers. The Tri-Mid is a model that covers all the critical areas of any business. It has three faces – one for the business, one for the market and one for the brand. To manage a brand successfully, all three faces of the Tri-Mid must be brought into balance.
THE BUSINESS FACE
You can manage your brand within the context of your market but unless it is also managed as an integral part of your business you will find it hard to achieve success. Here you need to think of your brand as a business in its own right.
THE MARKET FACE
The market face defines the context in which your brand operates. There are a number of building blocks that need to be taken into consideration. Perhaps the most obvious question of all, but so often overlooked, is to define exactly which market you are in.
THE BRAND FACE
What makes the brand face of the Tri-Mid unique is that you are able to define what really matters and why – it also takes you further than other models. Finally, but most importantly, we get to your true Brand Essence!

“An immersive brand workshop with The Chemistry Works really got to the heart of what I do, which made the creative process so much easier. I’m delighted with the end result – the coloured Triquetra icon perfectly encapsulates the essence of my business, representing warmth, dynamism and a holistic approach to therapy.”
Mark Johnson, General Manager
“Having decided to launch a new product to the market, we came to The Chemistry Works purely for packaging advice and design. It was amazing to see the work that went into their development and design process. Having a fresh set of eyes look over not just one product but the bigger picture, gave us a new focus and really got us excited about our brand again. The result was a consistent range of products that appeal to a contemporary audience.”
Adrian Ware, CEO
“I am in absolutely no doubt that hitting the ‘re-fresh’ button so firmly with the team at The Chemistry Works has been the single largest contributor for the growth and success we has seen this year.
