Branding

ideas matter

Strategy and creativity builds brands

Branding has more frequently found its way into boardroom discussions, strategic plans and corporate priorities over the past number of years.

In spite of the increased focus on brands and branding, far too many companies and organizations struggle with understanding what it takes to establish, build or re-build their brands.

Branding requires deep thinking, process and discipline

In our years of experience of working with all manner of brands, we have consistently put forth the opinion that successful branding requires a carefully considered process and a deeper level of thinking than most organizations realize.

Too often the approach to branding is, to put it kindly, superficial. Starting with logo design, brand name or catchy tagline may be fun, but it almost never leads to a brand with depth, meaning and value.

Brands Are Valuable Assets

Building a brand that contributes to the success of an organization is a critical and long-term investment. Like people, brands are intangible assets but, also like people, a brand can make or break a company or organization.

Effective brands with equity are those with awareness, associations and, the loyalty of key internal and external audiences. Strong brands allow companies to resist the urge to compete on price and overcome mistakes.
