Your business matters. Can it matter more?

Developing a brand, as you know, can really help differentiate your company or product. And, as a result, it can make your business more valuable. Between 30 and 40 percent if you’re a B2B and up to 70 percent if you’re Coke or Nike and a B2C. Building your brand requires a consistent investment in a brand idea that is totally relevant to your company or product and that matters a great deal to your target market.

‘Just Do It’ is still as relevant to us as a brand today as it was 23 years ago. In this case: Caster Semenya by Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam

Suffering from Typo-Rage

Typography has always played an important role in how I help companies to express themselves more distinctively. Good typography adds character and self-esteem to the message. But typography is often misused in mass communications, made by big expensive agencies that should know better. Poor font selection, poor kerning, and poor word spacing are the typical eyesores that infuriate me. Time to speak up and notice.

The Satrix promise

South Africa has almost no culture of saving money. With minimal social pressure to do the right thing, many people procrastinate and leave it too late. Working with a small budget – using outdoor, radio and social media – we have helped Satrix become a household name, synonymous with long-term investing made easy. With the promise of good things to come, this particular campaign encourages people to take the first step. (In collaboration with VH brand developers)

Corporate identity

The Simulated Sphere

Business strategy, no matter how well researched and articulated, is only as good as its execution. Many strategic consulting firms are frustrated developing strategies for clients only to see them struggle with execution. BTS Group AB in Stockholm, Sweden, is the world leader in customized business simulations that enable companies to test and try-out their business plans before anything goes ‘live’. Along the way, people practice alignment, build confidence, bolster competence and motivate action that dramatically increases the odds of winning… This BTS logo idea illustrates the business’ offering, showing one half of the sphere still in development.

The Road Less Lawered — the human approach to the business of corporate law

Founded in 2001, Axiom Law had experienced early success, but needed a more distinctive identity that could help them overcome some significant hurdles before taking their business to the next level. We developed a BHAG strategy that positions the brand as an organization that redefines the business and image of Law. Bring humanity, friendliness, and warmth to an industry that can be lacking – all the while balancing the joy and playfulness with an edge of intelligence, sophistication, and grandeur. In that way, Axiom Law matters and it reflects throughout its brand communication. As part of a creative partnership, we were able to help Axiom develop a clear visual aesthetic and pinpoint their company voice. Each piece of communication is seen as an opportunity to create a meaningful interaction with a client, employee, or potential recruit that sparks an emotional response, drives action, and forges loyalty.
