Full service pipe band branding and superior percussion design

What is a pipe band’s recognition, perception and retention really worth?

Like any business with employees, products and it’s customers, or favourite sports teams with their players and fans, pipe bands in fact, are not too much different. So too does your membership and supporters participate jointly in a very similar manner. Whatever the case may be, it demands a profound need to look consistently professional, while reinforcing a distinctive and unique identity, then when communicated clearly, continually builds profile and hopefully recognition over time.

With careful thoughtful planning and management, a band’s executive can address the importance of investing in itself and it’s image, an asset really worth protecting, to help visibly capture competitive awareness,secure further recruitment and garner greater public perception.

Simply, it’s all about recognizing two key words…. “commanding attention”, integral for brandishing any strategic profile with focused means and meaning. There’s more to it than merely putting a fat sticker on a drum…like once before. Every pipe band is different with an unique character and culture, as no two bands are the same.
