We live in a fragmented accelerating world that’s only getting more complex. In a time when the competition for our attention is fierce, how can we understand what really matters and inspire ourselves to rally around a common purpose?
Everything you do is an expression of your purpose. From the words you speak to the graphics on your website to the experiences you create for the people that matter to you. But these things are rarely considered as parts of a whole. They are often seen as separate. The result can be confusion that can go right to the core of your organization.
We are passionate about identity. We believe that organizations that deeply understand who they are and their essential human purpose are far more likely to achieve it. So we design purpose and identity.
It’s a process of discovery and invention. We start by understanding you you are and what you are trying to achieve. Then we help you craft your story in a way that inspires both the people you work with as well as the people you are trying to connect with.
The foundation is your purpose and personality. It’s an understanding of what makes you you and setting an ambitious destination. It’s understanding who you are, who you are trying to reach, and what makes you different.
Then it’s about the story you tell. It’s the messages that connect and inspire the people you are trying to reach.
Finally it’s the tangible expression of your story. It’s logos, visual identity systems, websites, spaces, and even the products themselves.
When you think and work this way, you have a much stronger sense of the big picture. You connect what you are trying to achieve in the world with the people inside and outside your organization. It’s efficient, and galvanizing, and inspiring.
If any of this sounds like you, we can help. Even if you have some of the pieces, but not all. Or if you have all the pieces but could use an outsider perspective. Whether you need to define and design your purpose, or simply express it in the form of a new visual identity, or website, or space, we get excited about helping tell exciting stories that move people.
