Our Story

Emotional Brands

What exactly does Moving Business through Emotional Brands mean? Well, it’s two-fold really. If your brand isn’t moving customers, it’s probably not moving business. But a brand that customers fall in love with – that’s the stuff legends are made of! When customers keep coming back for more it’s good for business, and what’s good for business is what we are all about. We infuse life into brands with a magical je ne sais quoi and don’t just settle for good, but push you to be great! Whether through a color, a feeling, a story, a hook, a line or all of the above, your brand image will get the love it truly deserves through all of its glorious touch points.

What We Love to Do

Logos and Identities

When it comes to expressing the real you through your corporate logo and identity, we recommend you be uncompromising – Idealistic even. After all, you didn’t just put up your shingle to blend in with the others. You set out to make that special statement about who you are and what you do, and we don’t want you to forget that. When you’re ready to either create that first identity for your organization, or launch an exciting new refresh, make it special – but more importantly – make it you.

Interactive Media

Our experts in emotional branding, digital marketing and media technologies ensure your business stays relevant and intriguing in the online world. Our focus lies in developing unique and substantial brand presence that resonates in today’s real world. Whether through games and edutainment, touchscreen technology, or a strong web presence, we recognize that interactive media solutions can be one of your most influential distribution conduits. And, consistently delivering in the digital media realm takes more than just passionate commitment to master constantly-evolving technologies; it also demands that we listen both to our clients’ business needs, as well as their customer’s true desires.

Advertising & Design

We pride ourselves in determining the most effective approach for any given business challenge, as well as finding unique identity and character within your brand in order to represent the true you. It could be through a targeted multiple touch point campaign, proprietary product design solutions, innovative customer service offerings, or simply strategic ideation and consulting support. No matter your marketing communications vision and goals, we’ll help you design, develop, and harness them for optimal results. Our emotionally intelligent design approach helps guide our clients by defining their ultimate needs and developing strong strategies to suit each and every business style. Every communication solution is different, but they all have something in common: engaging, inspiring, and eye-catching manifestations that are impossible to ignore.

Videos & Trailers

In the digital world, words may not be enough, and the addition of video to your marketing or landing pages truly puts your best foot forward. With nearly 200 million people in the U.S. watching and sharing video content online each day, it’s easy to see the potential power even the simplest video can leverage. Personalize your connection with visitors to cultivate repeat clicks and boost site popularity and rankings. Whether your video is marketing and promotions related, or an internal corporate tutorial or performance incentive, we’ll add the emotion and creative dimension to help motivate, hype, and educate your customers and stakeholders to new levels of engagement.

Brandscaping

Imagine making a bold statement about your workspace or reflecting the brand image of your business ideals in the first impressive seconds someone enters your corporate domain. Imagine creating an emotionally inspired workspace your team members can embrace for years to come. Our themed workspace environments (or brandscapes) help build enthusiasm, reinforce corporate values and bolster morale towards a common vision for organizations of all shapes and sizes. We’ll help you add brand power to your conference displays and promotional signage, to cut through the clutter, reel in potential customers, and connect with them about who you really are.

Packaging Design

Purchasing decisions happen at point-of-sale, and they happen fast. Successful packaging is the only thing that differentiates two similar products. Think of your success when a consumer believes there is no other substitute for your product. We believe physical and visual differentiation is integral for your product to stand out in the marketplace. We also believe effective packaging has the potential to elevate a seemingly commoditized product into something consumers hunger for. We’ll help you develop the brand story, product launch, and retail programs to extend the brand at store level. We’re also experts in creative positioning of distinctive employee incentive programs, destination conferences, and invitation packaging.

Publishing

You’ve committed all that extra time, care and attention to develop a perfect manuscript. What if you could infuse your book cover and interior layout with the same love and distinctive emotional edge. We work with authors, publishers, business professionals, coaches, educators, consultants, speakers, and all others seeking to create that special legacy text. We’ve worked closely with world-renowned publishing houses on big brand publications, while at the same time helping launch smaller scale self-published productions. Some say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but our penchant for creating impactful visual imagery in combination with captivating titles has made several key authors rethink that ancient adage. Let us bring your manuscript to life and help take your readers where you really want them to go.
