Village Building Co Brand and digital marketing program

The Business

Village Building Co. works across the full spectrum of property development including land, house and land, apartments and mixed use developments.  Based in Canberra, they currently have 13 developments in their portfolio in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Coffs Harbour and Wollongong.  Marketing campaigns for developments often take a destination marketing approach to sell the benefits and features of the region and the emotional connection to family and place.

The Challenge

After 28 years the company’s founder and CEO Bob Winnel had decided to scale back his involvement and put in place a succession plan with new CEO Travis Doherty taking the reigns following a 12month transition.  We were tasked with the challenge of refreshing the brand and working with the newly appointed Sales and Marketing Director to transform the digital marketing approach to move with the times with the purpose of repositioning the image of the company and increasing sales leads and customers.
