Let’s Chat


It's time to create a knockout brand

Around here, normal is considered a disease. Average is the enemy. In fact, the only thing we conform to is non-conformity. Why? Because bland brands blend in. With millions of brands vying for attention, it’s essential that you stand out from the pack.


So, how do you become a Spotted Zebra? First, we’ll start by taking a deep dive into your brand in order to build out your brand platform from which your own emotional connections will be crafted. Our typical toolset includes our Spotted Zebra Branding Workshop as well as interviews with various stakeholders and any additional research necessary to unearth the golden nuggets necessary to build out your Brand Platform.

We’ll get to the heart of the issues as we articulate your:

  • Brand Story: Every great brand has a story. What’s yours?
  • Brand Essence and Purpose: What is the underlying passion that drives your brand?
  • Brand Promise: Is your brand truly a promise, or is it a wish?
  • Brand Personality: Great brands have personality. Does yours?


To identify your “IT,” you must dig deep into your brand and understand what emotional, human reasons it has for existence. Move beyond a literal description of what you do, and into a deeper meaning.
Now imagine your ideal customer. Every brand has “ONES,” but how do you attract them? What resonates with them? Our process uncovers what motivates your “ONES,” their personality and all the traits that make them unique.


Once your “IT” and “ONES” are established, it’s time to get the creative juices flowing. It’s time to tell your story and forge emotional connections with the “ONES.” No boring brands allowed. Why? Because to truly connect, you must move beyond the descriptive and into emotion and meaning. No matter the industry, brands with meaning and personality always win.

It’s time to throw on your gloves and get in the ring!
