Brand Strategy

We believe that healthy brands must have a clearly defined place and purpose in the world – the best brands become part of the stories that we tell about ourselves.

Building brand strategy is a balance of vision, collaboration and precision. We understand how to tailor our role to different stages of your brand journey, from foundational purpose to positioning development, brand audit to developing creative platforms and briefs.

Brilliant brands need to be founded on strong cultural and audience resonance. We explore culture and category to define what the opportunity for the brand is now and into the future. We define tension and aspirations in people’s lives – framing how brands can find and express their place in the world.

Brilliant brand ideas must be realistic. We marry human insight to your internal frameworks and systems. We understand and work with the political, commercial and executional realities that clients face. We relish cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Brilliant brands are not born overnight. We are comfortable as the custodians of brand vision, deftly and delicately defending the core of an idea as it travels within, and beyond, organisations. We are experts at how brand purpose can, and sometimes must be re-expressed through brand extension and innovation. We also understand how to balance the tension between the soul of a brand and the journey to growth.
