Branding provides a narrative platform for you to describe what makes your product, organization, or service unique. It defines what you offer that no one else does.

IT CAN…

 

GEEKS UNITE!

 

The world’s largest online comics price guide, Comicspriceguide.com asked us to assist them in taking their company to the next level.

In addition to providing a revitalized identity and brand platform, we restructured their website with rich media assets to enhance the user experience and deliver more content.

We then developed a digital ad delivery system that equipped CPG with analytics and geo-targeting capabilities to offer more value to potential advertisers.

Today, CPG is firmly established as THE premiere online comics price guide. 

 
 

A HERITAGE OF GROWTH.

Union County, Ohio was looking to tell the story of their agricultural heritage and economic opportunity in a contemporary manner relevant to young professionals and families.

Union County desired to be seen as a place businesses want to locate in communities where people are proud to live. We refocused the brand on the heritage of the region and the opportunities for professional and personal growth.

Then we crafted a positioning statement from which to launch the brand:

Built on a rich history forged from the land, Union County, Ohio offers many opportunities for growth. Businesses are encouraged to locate here in communities where families choose to raise their children and people are proud to live. 

Growth is our heritage. Grow with us.

 
 

A STEP WEST.

After 43 years of frontiers and prairies, Durango was widely perceived as a "truck driver boot."  We saw opportunities to revitalize the brand and target new market share.

Our research chronicled the impact of an "urban-western" movement in fashion, popular culture, and music. Growth opportunities existed in the young female segment and we moved to redefine the core consumer. We then repositioned the brand as the ambassador of an independent and fashion-forward lifestyle.

THE TRADITIONS OF THE AMERICAN WEST MEETS URBAN EXPRESSION.

Durango Boots enables consumers to express their western side by offering a cultural rallying cry to embrace independence and make a statement! Durango defines the urban-western fashion movement to “Head West.”

Durango is now a leading seller in its category.

 

A DUAL TRACK PROMOTION.

 

We conceived a NASCAR racing program for Georgia Boot as a means of speaking to their core consumers and elevating brand awareness among NASCAR’s 75 million fans. We also sought to equip the Georgia Boot sales force with a unique means of strengthening retailer relationships and increasing sales.

Partnered with Sprint Cup Champion, Kevin Harvick and driver Ron Hornaday, we developed a dual track racing promotion around a consumer sweepstakes and retailer incentive program.

 The campaign was supported with a TV spot featuring Kevin Harvick, VIP track events, radio ads, in-store driver appearances, point-of-sale materials, and social media.

Georgia Boot has experienced the ability of NASCAR to elevate their brand and drive sales with key retailers. The Georgia Boot sales team saw order volume increases as high as 38% in a single season!

 

RISE UP NOW!

 

Saint Michael The Archangel in Worthington, Ohio was seeking a new brand image to inspire active discipleship in their faith community and school.

We sought to reconnect the patron and modernize their message to reach out to the broader community with a brand story that was compelling and inspiring:

Saint Michael The Archangel
is a Catholic community on fire for the Lord that inspires people to rise up now and become active disciples to fulfill God’s purpose in their lives.
