Branding is an area of strong expertise for us.  We are known for it.  We have helped make B.D.T. Smoke Shops, the Monroe Street Fair Hash Bash Festival, America's Medical Marijuana Championship Tournaments, and Verve Stars, (a Tommy Chong company) stand out in todays competitive industry segments.

For over 15 years we have worked closely  with our many Monroe Street Fair Hash Bash Festival cannabis related sponsors, businesses and industry leaders in helping promote their brand effectively, direct to the intended targeted audience.

We’ve created new company names and logos and built brands from scratch into household names.  We’ve also helped establish brands that have strength and resonance leading to significant growth of their brand in cannabis related target audiences and beyond.

We regularly help organizations clarify, define and come to consensus on their brand genetics, brand values, brand positioning, key messages, and target audiences.  Often we conduct in-depth brand research and lead one day branding sessions with the organization’s leadership to achieve this goal.  We then create the strategies that help plant the seeds of growth of the brand. We help clients successfully nurture and grow their brand internally and externally.

We help ensure that all marketing communications initiatives clearly and consistently grow from your brands unique genetics. This influential and fascinating advantage is inherent in your brands DNA and helps  increase the emotional connection you make with your target audience with the direct goal of positively impacting mindshare and marketshare.
