About Us

We designed our brand with the ampersand inside but connected to the outside because brand value doesn’t come purely from the inside out but also from the outside in as the world that we live in influences how we express our values and also where the value shifts next.

We believe brands can have a powerful multiplier effect on a business through three key strategic tools;

PURPOSE, CULTURE & MEANING

PURPOSE plays an important role. A relevant Purpose embodies the mission of the organisation and should be closely tied to its products and services. These days, Brand Purpose ranges from Brands that are born purposeful to traditional companies embracing Purpose and then onto brands who’s Purpose is just a reflection of their marketing, not their companies Mission.

CULTURE is a strategic asset. Cultural relevance has become the new core product for brands and organisations to create, maintain and grow their value and equity. This is because, without relevance within the broader context of culture, in which your business is embedded, the value that your brands create will not be sustainable.

MEANING. We consume brands based on what they mean to us, for what they represent in terms of our own desires, values, feelings and mental images we create about the world we live in. When your brands meaning is in sync with culture it can provide a valuable edge for differentiation.
