Brand naming, brand language and research to verify what works. It's what we do best.

BRAND NAMING

Let's get it right.

Crafting the perfect moniker to help you rise above the fray, jump into your audience's head and steer clear of thorny trademark, URL, search and linguistic issues.

We dive deep with you to understand the ins and outs of what we’re naming and the impact we'll need to create.
We analyze the competition to uncover areas of opportunity. We research and brainstorm, distilling everything into a definitive naming strategy.
We share our findings and strategy, ensuring we have all of your input, and we’re all on the same page.
This is where the magic happens. We don our creative thinking caps and generate lots (and lots) of names. For a typical project, we create upwards of 1,000 names.
Before presenting candidates for your to consider, we screen them for trademark, URL, search and linguistic viability.
We present recommended names with stories and context. These are viable candidates for you to consider, and we show how each name could be brought to life.
When it comes to final selection, the decision is ultimately yours. But we’re here to guide you, every step of the way.

BRAND LANGUAGE

What you say & how you say it.

Your brand purpose and story. Your brand message and voice. That one phrase that says it all. Let's nail it.

Through interviews and research, we learn about your brand today, and its possibilities for tomorrow.
Based on our strategic recommendations, we explore a variety of territories for telling your brand’s story, and finding the right message.
Together, we hone in on the most viable avenues, and build out a brand language system customized to your needs.
When it comes to brand language, seeding it into your company or organization is key. We codify everything we've developed — from strategy and story to targeted messaging — into user-friendly guidelines.

DATA & RESEARCH

What works & why?

Applying advanced data, analytics and research methodologies to understand trends and opportunities. Validating which names, concepts and messages resonate most, and why your audience cares.

Together, we plan the scope of our research with you, mapping everything back to your brand strategy, target audience, business goals and budget.
Through a mix of quantitative or qualitative testing, and data and analytics, we uncover what’s really happening, and what your audience really thinks.
We crunch the numbers. We mine text. We see through the data to derive actionable insights that clarify your path forward.
Based on our analysis, we report back with clear, definitive recommendations that help drive smart, strategic decisions for your brand.
