Create and choose the right name to define your idea, company, brand, product or service with a naming workshop.

What’s in a name? It turns out, a lot! But that doesn’t mean you need an expensive naming agency to create a name and choose for you. Why not consider letting your team take control? After all, they are the ones who know your business and your customers best. We can take our decades of experience to design an innovative learning and naming workshop experience just for your organization. After learning our process you’ll be able to create names, names, names, and more names for anything new that pops up.

Our naming challenge can be directed towards anything that needs a name – from a business, product, website, feature, or even an event. We believe in this naming process so much that it’s even been used to decide on names for children! Whether your naming project is renaming or looking for descriptive names, business names as an entrepreneur, names for social media, or a brand identity that fits a brand strategy, we can help you brainstorm and converge on the best potential names. We can even invent new words related to your business, product, or stakeholders.

Lastly, this exercise can serve as a teambuilding activity itself. One of our favorite activities in the workshop is to help teams create a name for themselves, along with a visual and tagline. This serves to bring team members together in the process and structure the ideation itself.

Design Thinking for Naming

With our company, we’ve committed to using an innovative framework of design thinking to go step-by-step through a naming process. This begins with inspiration and empathy, continues with a brainstorming session, and ends with testing out the top name concepts with those we are designing the name for and with. The name result could be invented words or word combinations and even visuals.

Design thinking is a creative process utilizing personas for branding that will help us create and select the best idea from the input of your team. Our naming strategy approach keeps your client or target audience at the forefront from our naming brief stage to selection and launch of the new name for the brand, product, service, team, entity or whatever you need for your business.
