This is followed up by a proposed outline plan of action and we jointly agree ways of working and project timelines. We can work with you on a one off project based or retained basis. We can also act as your sales arm for specific targeted customers; gaining listings and managing relationships on your behalf.
How do I ensure I keep my brand integrity and ownership?
AFDA are here to be ambassadors for your brand. Product will be sold with your brand ethos at the centre and you can choose the direction you wish to take. Any packaging will be designed with your brand approval or you can be responsible for this yourself.
