Never Go Extinct

For big companies who have the ambition to get ahead of the competition and stay ahead of smaller, start-up brands, Brand Now is the go-to agency for disruptive thinking and solutions that lead to achievable new products, brands, and opportunities for growth.

MORE TIME ≠ BETTER

Oscar Wilde put it best when he said, “Time is a waste of money.” Having lots of time is important when you’re contemplating the origins of the universe, but it can be a detriment when creating your next breakthrough idea. We believe working efficiently is the key to working effectively, and repeatedly see how strict timelines produce better, smarter results.

PROJECTS NEED PERSONALIZATION

Having a team of employees that fill needs as they come up means that a person’s strongest skills are only being applied to a portion of the work they are assigned to do. We keep mediocrity down and talent high by assembling teams of experts—not employees—who possess the kind of knowledge, experience and passion that brings real value to every project we work on.

FORGET FOCUS GROUPS

Consumers are invaluable as buyers, but most don’t possess the foresight to express deep-seated needs or envision breakthrough solutions. Our global pool of exceptional Consumer Masterminds possess the power to articulate insights and craft solutions at the highest level. By engaging them at several points in a project, brands gain future-forward ideas and thoughtful feedback that far exceed what ordinary consumers can deliver.

BREAK RULES PURPOSEFULLY

Disruption for disruption’s sake is equally as unproductive as playing it safe. Making real change within a big company structure requires understanding which practices are working, which need to be more adaptive, and which to replace completely.
