A brand is everything from the story it tells and the promises it keeps, to the ideas it ignites and the emotions it inspires. Properly managed, a brand is able to increase its impact and remain memorable over time. When positioned successfully, a brand develops goodwill, trust, and allegiance in the heart and mind of its target audience—inspiring action and driving quantifiable results.
TAKING A BRAND FROM A TO Z.
Throughout the discovery phase I research, analyze, and synthesize an amalgamation of information to best define and distinguish a brand from the competition.
Brand Story ('Positioning Statement')
I create the powerful language that resonates with a brand's target audience, and then write the 'story' that will serve as the foundation for all communications going forward.
Once the groundwork is complete, the brand can be positioned in the marketplace with the desired perception—in perpetuity.
The Science of Decision-making
Contrary to all those rumors, good ideas come from hard work. This is no guessing game. A good idea is only as sound as the foundational information that supports it—so, it makes sense that only after miles of research and analyzing that research, that the real fun starts. Everybody knows that when an ideas is grounded in reality, even the wildest of ideas stick like a sucker-punch.
The Temperature of Words
Understanding the emotional associations people make when they hear a word, plays a critical role in bringing an idea to life And when that happens, words can tickle the imagination and dance right off the page.
IDEAS THAT GENERATE AFFINITY, TRUST AND ALLEGIENCE.
