ADVERTISING + BRANDED CONTENT
Let’s cut to the chase—most of the world’s advertising is forgettable. Your biggest competition for the hearts and minds of your customers isn’t other companies. It’s culture.
In today’s world, a gif goes further than a billboard. We happen to be good at both.
Advertising is no longer about hiring one brand spokesperson or sending out a single branded campaign — now, your story is told in hundreds of small ways, both by your brand and by ambassadors in the broader culture who align with your message.
APPROACH TO ADVERTISING
A Cure for the Common
Our approach to advertising and branded content breaks down into three steps:
Our team of researchers begins by identifying the conventions of the marketplace, uncovering the cultural edges and tensions that define an audience’s behaviours, beliefs, and values.
Then, we work with our clients to hone their purpose, breaking it down into everyday language that’s easy to understand.
From here, we develop branded content and advertising campaigns that disrupt the status quo and position our client’s brands to accomplish their purpose and move faster than the speed of culture.
