Design Technology Audit

A design technology audit is a new form of audit in Poland, not regulated by law and not strictly controlling. It is primarily a method of assessing a company in terms of awareness, resources, and the use of industrial design and practices related to visual identification, its potential, applied procedures, and realized and unrealized needs.

The aim of the design technology audit is to create a list of recommendations useful for the company in its daily operations, especially in activities related to broadly understood design and visual identification. It is very important for entrepreneurs to be aware of the importance of design and visual communication for the competitiveness of their company, especially in foreign markets, where design plays a much larger role than in Poland. A design technology audit may include:

  • Awareness of design in the company,
  • Resources for design,
  • The place and role of design in company operations,
  • Visual identification used by the company,
  • Implementation of a new design project.

Marketing Audit

A marketing audit is an assessment of the communication conducted by the brand. A marketing audit includes communication materials that the brand uses in its message to its consumers. The audit evaluates elements of visual identification such as the logo, as well as communication in terms of graphic, linguistic, and technical aspects of other materials: website, printed information materials, ATL communication (e.g., TV spot, radio ad, press advertisement) and BTL activities (online activities and their forms – owned social media profiles, mailing, remarketing, use of data from Google Analytics, display campaigns, etc.).

The aim of the audit is to examine and determine what message is created for customers by the used communication materials, what image of the brand they create, what are the strengths and weaknesses of the used communication materials, and how the brand can use them in a more effective way to achieve the set goals.

Intellectual Property Audit

An intellectual property audit is a systematic and thorough review of owned and acquired intellectual assets. A formal intellectual property audit serves two main purposes:

  • Identification and assessment of owned assets,
  • Forecasting and management of risks that can be associated with owned intellectual properties of the enterprise.


Other thematic audits are agreed individually.
