Place Brand Ecosystem™

A place brand is more than one team's idea. It can and should represent the whole community, all it's stakeholders, including private sector businesses. Brandkit is working everyday with place brands and we understand this tension.

It's complex to be sure, but Brandkit believes that your tools can and should be designed to enable you to engage your communities, aggregate the myriad of stories, and present them as part of your overarching brand story.

The 4 Pillars of a Place Brand Ecosystem™

Authentic Content

Content, whether writen, spoken or visual, should be honest, authentic and real.

Aligned Narrative

Storytelling should be aligned around a shared vision and beliefs.

Stakeholder Engagement

All parties, from the place brand team through stakeholders, local businesses and partners should be encouraged to actively contribute, engage with, repurpose, and share the content, and participate in storytelling.


It's vital that the ecosystem thrives and lives on, with more content added, and more story tellers engaged, and more aligned brand stories shared over time.

Place Brand practitioners need effective tools to develop a cohesive brand narrative and communicate this and it's various factors to stakeholders effectively.
