Ironing out a refreshed brand identity
Working with White Stuff’s senior leadership team to align the business around the future target audience.
White Stuff is a multi-channel fashion lifestyle brand with a strong retail presence in the UK and Germany. The company was founded over 35 years ago and the brand has a heritage in colourful casual clothing. However, they had lost sight of their identity and who they were designing for.
We worked closely with their leadership team to understand who the target customer should be moving forwards.
We ran a quant segmentation study across the UK and Germany, and a series of leadership workshops with the CEO, CFO, and Customer, Design, Merchandising, People Directors. Here we prioritised target segments and generated initiatives to better serve them. We created video and pen portraits to bring the target to life and embed them in the business.
WhiteStuff’s target customers are now the focus across all functions and territories. We helped generate, prioritise and assign agreed actions for the leadership team so next steps were actionable across product, CX, brand and comms. The management team were able to make several transformational decisions off the back of this work, including to phase out childrenswear.
