Improve market share
Create a new brand
Time stands still for no man (or company), so the quest for profitable brand extensions or expansions is a constant business reality. But many companies, even well-established ones, have a clunker of a brand in their histories. When a seemingly good idea goes bad, the culprit is often poorly aligned brand architecture.
Building a new brand may start with an innovative idea, but that is just the beginning of a strategic process. Brand architecture guides how all offerings relate to your corporate brand and to each other—and how you present them to the world. We can help you develop a strong, coherent structure that guides decisions about when and how to add new brands. Good brand architecture protects value, builds cohesion and gives new brands a fighting chance for success. Of course, once its strategic position within your portfolio is well defined, your new brand needs a spot-on name and differentiating visual identity. We’ve got the skills and experience to help you bring it to market with distinction.
Redefine a brand
There are times when even the most widely admired brands—regardless of size or industry—need a reboot, a refresh, a recharge. Maintaining momentum without alienating or confusing current customers is a constant challenge in today’s ever-changing competitive landscape.
Our brand mantra: What does a company stand for? How is it different? Why should anyone care? Yes, great brands are grounded in the truth of an organization, but brands don’t live in isolation. We consider those defining questions through multiple lenses—including audiences and external environments as well as your organization itself. By looking at your brand as one organism in a whole ecosystem, we’re able to see how it needs to evolve or adapt to stay strong and relevant.
