We’re brand strategists who are tired of shallow design & meaningless content.

We’re brand strategists who are tired of shallow design & meaningless content.

Good branding involves great design, but it doesn’t start there and design alone does not make a great brand.

We help firms in the commercial building trade focus on the longterm strategy of brand building and creating a position of strength in the market. The short term ROI of referral and repeat business is great, but you must also be building your brand for the future, you know when those clients and your lead salespeople retire. How much business are you missing because you don't have an established brand? You may have a great rep with those that know you and that counts but without a longterm brand strategy, you are going to be sunk. 

Many of us at Branding & Beyond started our careers as designers so we approach everything with a critical-eye cultivated by years of designing and solving visual problems for clients. We also have serious business strategy chops. The melding of design thinking with business strategy makes for a fantastic combination. This comes naturally to us, let that be your advantage. 

Strategy first. Design second.

We focus exclusively on rethinking and rebranding successful medium-sized legacy businesses who have outlived their current brand and are ready to revitalize. They are ready to focus on longterm brand building because they know doing nothing makes them vulnerable.

When you work with us:

  • You don’t need to come with a plan, just a willingness to get started.
  • You don’t need to know where to start. We have a process called Find the Brand Within, a 1-on-1 program to define & develop your strategy, brand personality and core messaging.
  • We will create the project scope together based on your goals and priorities for the business and what is needed to meet those goals.
  • You don’t have to source and manage a team of writers, designers, and coders, then project manage the whole process... we take care of all of that.
  • All you need to do is show up to meetings, be available for questions and feedback, do a bit of homework, and be open to change. 
  • Our process is quite transparent, allowing you to see the projects as they form and collaborate up to the amount you have time and give-a-damn for. 
  • No matter how much of a hot-mess or non-existent your branding is right now, we will meet you where you are with zero judgment. Together we will build a marketing foundation that will serve you for years to come and make most other decisions easier. 
  • You are one call away from having a team that is here to help you identify what actually needs to be done to meet your business goals. No more guessing.
Warning: We don’t pull punches; we are honest and open with our findings, the good and the bad. We are not yes-men/women. We are here to solve real business problems not to just make things pretty or play office politics, although we are great at the pretty and excellent at aligning teams. If you are looking for a company to purely execute your already formed vision, you need to keep looking, that’s not us. 

We’re tired of websites that say nothing and brands that try to be everything to everyone.

Being everything to everyone, makes you blend in. You become interchangeable AND vulnerable!

But you ARE special!

There are clients out there that NEED you, let’s make it easy for them to find you and see you were built to serve them.
