Humanize Your Brand and Connect with Customers

We all have certain friends and family members we choose to surround ourselves with. Similarly, we have relationships with product and service brands we interact with on a daily basis. Our friends have reputations, recognizable identities, style and voice. We know where they usually hang out and can count on them to make us feel a certain way. Don't we all have that friend who—regardless of how bad our day's been—knows exactly what will lift our spirits, give us confidence, make us laugh, feel more attractive, smarter, healthier, more connected, and so on?

It's a time of renewal, rebirth and excitement. As we're preparing our yards and sweeping out the garage, it's also a good time to consider if your brand and packaging could use a springtime clean up.

We were recently tasked by GameMaster Athletic to re-design their line of Louisville Slugger branded game-improvement, training and...

“Craft” is a word at the heart of the American experience, emphasizing the mix of skills, smarts and strength of character necessary to create something truly remarkable. A commitment to craft demonstrates that your work is not just “a job,” but rather a passion or true calling. It’s why someone chooses to work in a patient care field that requires difficult personal sacrifices, but the satisfaction of helping those in need strongly outweighs the hardship. We see the commitment to craft all around us. As a consumer and marketer, I relish spotting someone that has chosen a field that...

Does Print Still Matter?

Let’s face it, few smells in the world are as distinct as an overused stadium restroom or company breakroom when someone burns microwave popcorn. As your mother might say, “This is not good dinner conversation…” but the reality is, a savvy business owner understands that ensuring a pleasant environment makes good business sense. Cintas is the nation’s leading provider of products and services that help businesses improve their cleanliness, image and safety.
