To know the soul of a person is to truly understand them; we believe the same can be said of brands.
The SOUL of a brand is the intrinsic emotional truth that gives a brand meaning. The POWER is the extrinsic identity that expresses the brand’s meaning through distinct and ownable equities. This gives brands visual punch, persuading the wavering hand and helping them win at shelf.
Our proprietary Soul Power™ process works in four phases – each informing the next to ensure a successful outcome to the most complex of projects. We investigate ﬁrst – listening, observing and dissecting the brief, the consumer and the marketplace. Next we deﬁne – distilling, building and shaping the strategic thinking. Then we explore – designing, directing and pushing the creative space. Finally we activate – ensuring your brand communicates with a cohesive look and feel beyond packaging. Every approach is individual, every process is engaging, every result is outstanding.
