Trend and culture expertise and brand audits

Trend and culture expertise is where we find and create moments to spark engagement between brands and their customers.

Brand audits provide a thorough measurement of a brand’s internal and external expressions, strategies, and actions to help benchmark a brand’s strengths and weaknesses against its competitors—resulting in actionable insights and KPIs to guide towards goals.

Multicultural communications

We understand that multicultural communications is about much more than race and language. It is about connecting brands with their audiences authentically, and addressing potential social and cultural differences that may be a barrier to open and inclusive communication.

We have decades of experience helping brands, organizations, and governments reach multicultural audiences and deliver messages that empower and inspire across languages and borders.

Brand platform development

We help businesses define the unique, authentic, and timeless components of their DNA.

A brand platform delivers strategic principles that serve as a blueprint for the brand.

This platform guides a brand's behavior and influences communications, product development, recruiting, and more.

Message development

To execute a brand strategy, organizations must communicate clearly and consistently across stakeholders, businesses, and channels—while tailoring their messages to different audience segments.

We design and develop messaging frameworks to create consistency in how the brand communicates both internally and externally.
