Everyone and their ideated, synergistic brother keeps throwing the B-word around, and though we are certainly NOT an ad agency or a marketing firm, it is starting to make us a little crazy. A Brand is not a logo, it is not something you make in the computer, it is a cohesive corporate experience; a holistic collaboration of colors, logos, commercials, benefits packages and CEO hairpieces. From the employees to the customers, a brand is, at its best, a distinct, cohesive, and resonant voice.
So while we are not a dyed-in-the-wool branding agency, we routinely find ourselves in a position to offer valuable strategy and direction for clients of all varieties. From message strategy and positioning for start-ups and mom and pops, to audits, protocol, and implementation for established corporations, Ocupop has the acumen and experience to foster responsible brand stewardship far and wide.
