In a World of Limitless Options, Branding Creates Choice.

Your brand is so much more than just a logo and a set of design assets. It’s the creative expression of your company that sets the foundation for your customers to lean, to click, to buy, or to try.

Our Approach to Branding.

Your customer has more control over what they buy than ever before. To stand out requires more than just the bare minimum of branding, because in a world of limtiless options, your audience has the ultimate power: the power to choose.

This frees you up to shift your focus away from the red-ocean strategies of direct competition, to the blue-ocean strategies of speaking to you customers in a more unique way than anyone else.

Your company’s brand is the the foundation that ties together who you are, what you do, and ultimately why they should care. Get this part down, and the sky’s the limit in terms of empowering your customers and staff to choose you in a sea of sameness.

Naming

Naming seems straightforward — but appearances can be deceiving. The right name should be clear, ownable, and metaphorical enough to give you room to grow, while evoking the right emotions.

Positioning

It’s not enough to have a solid product or business. Striking the right balance of attributes, features, and benefits will clearly differentiate yourself in the eyes of your prospects and customers.

Strategy

Strategy contains all of the workshops, research, and recommendations that define what your brand should feel like and say. Get the first couple of steps right, and it will set you up for years.

Brand Design

Your identity is the sum of all of the creative elements that define your brand. Words, graphics, motion, and audio all have roles to play in creating the expression that causes people to perk up and take notice.

Key Language

Without the right words, even the best brand identities fall flat. The process of defining how your brand should sound and read goes hand-in-hand with visuals in laying the brand’s creative foundation.

Key Touchpoints

It’s one thing to create a brand identity, but it’s quite another to shape it over time. Key Touchpoints (such as stationary, collateral, or advertising) brings your brand out of theory and into practice.

Design Systems

A successful brand identity ties together big-picture concepts with a full design system that incorporates digital, print, advertising, corporate collateral, messaging, and more into a cohesive system of design principles, artifacts, and guides.

Brand Toolkits

The days of an agency being in charge of all creative expressions for a client are over — and rightly so. Brand Toolkits consist of assets and files that your teams can take and use, setting you up for success from day one.

Brand Guidelines

A Brand Guideline is a living, breathing document or microsite that outlines your brand strategy, audience, identity, the design system, and key touchpoint creative to inform all parties of the essence of your entire brand.
