what we do
A great brand is your most powerful asset. We are brand specialists with a passion for strategically-led creative thinking. Over the past 25 years we’ve worked hard to create commercial advantages for brands, large and small.
We have specific expertise and an outstanding track record of client success in:
- Creating brands that give start-ups the ‘legs’ they need to convince investors and engage early-adopters.
- Repositioning and relaunching brands that need to adapt, change and connect with new audiences.
- Naming and brand identity development that is brave, pushes boundaries and delivers results.
- Identifying and exploiting the most valuable opportunity space in an addressable market.
- Information design and simplified communications, translating complexity into clear, effective engaging communications.
- Transformation and change management with ideas-led communications that shift mindsets and drive cultural change.
- Digital platforms that audit knowledge and deliver effective attitude and behaviour change through micro-learning and gamification.
- International experience: almost a decade of work in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Japan, UK, Scandinavia, and New Zealand in addition to more than 25 years in Australasia, has given us the insights, knowledge and networks essential to successfully positioning your brand for consumers outside Australia.
