Cultural relevance makes or breaks good advertising and global and social issues are on trend.

Around here, we often say, “You can’t read the label if you’re inside the jar.” In other words, if you’re only looking at your business from the inside, you’re probably missing quite a bit. That’s why we help clients look outside the jar. Our approach melds qualitative and quantitative research to help us better understand how others perceive what’s on the label, directing our strategy, our design, and our messaging. Our process moves beyond the subjective and takes a deeper dive into the how and why. We ask questions first and let the answers drive our actions, taking preexisting perceptions about who you are and what you do out of the equation. In addition, instead of being influenced by trends, we put a finger on the pulse of your audience and tap into their feelings, experiences and perceptions before pencil is ever put to paper.
We take guideposts from Thomas Gad’s 4-Dimensional Branding to deliver a brand that is authentic, and connects with your audience in every way that matters. We dig in to ensure your visual identity and messaging align with your mission, vision and values, including guiding you through a cultural identification process to get the heart of who you are, and communicate what’s most important. From identifying your Brand Archetype, to sharing deeper insights on the motivations and points of pain of your customers, our process offers an inside look into your brand and how we can best share your story. Willow delivers so much more than a logo. You get a comprehensive identity, built from the ground up.
