Build bonds, change mindsets, create connection
Brands in this space have the great promise of building strong emotional connections because often they are brands we ingest, wear, use frequently, or value highly.
Today, with increased competition, many consumer brands focus on generic benefits, dilute their offerings with multiple related products, and do not invite reciprocity into their brand relationships. The industry tends to have complicated portfolio structures and detailed segmentations and frequently lacks insight on emotion. We can help you optimize portfolios, name and align product families, link your brand to emotion, and establish strong connections with your key audiences.
As the Brand Intimacy Agency, our expertise centers on building brands that impact mindsets, drive decision-making, and bond with their stakeholders. We anchor your brand on a series of archetypes that matter most to the consumer market. We factor emotional drivers into content, design, and digital outputs so the result is not only distinct and compelling but also connected and engaging.
