We are brand engineers, because branding gives businesses a face, a personality, and the ability to be remembered. Without the right one, product awareness, customer loyalty, and effective creative are all but impossible. Branding is defined as the promotion of a company or product by means of advertising and distinctive design, so it is intrinsic to everything we do. Therefore, we create, we define, we manage, and we evolve brands by approaching all our work — from designing a logo to developing a website — with a focus on making sure that brand is memorable, appropriate, and strategically effective.

An important question to ask is, what isn’t branding? A brand is comprised of everything that people use to identify a company — and everything a business does sends a message. The truly successful companies realize that through careful branding, they can make sure that people are only identifying them by that which is carrying the right message.

    In 2010, we were at a poolside event and met an MBA student from a Kansas City college and he shared a concept for a bar & restaurant that he and a few of his fellow students were considering pursuing.
