Brand Problems We Solve
how we think
For us, a brand is all about guts and glory because a brand is a person’s gut feeling about a product, service or company. It’s a gut feeling because despite our best efforts to be rational, we are all emotional, intuitive beings. A brand is defined by the individuals who choose it – not the company or the market, but by one person at a time. When enough individuals arrive at the same gut feeling, then you have a brand, and it is defined by what these consumers say it is. Great brands are not as they exist on an Excel sheet but as they exist in the minds of consumers.

Shape your strategy and tell your story. Great strategy is about making choices on what to stop doing, what to start doing and what to keep doing and sticking with the choices, that is.
