1: You’re an agency
Agencies use us to boost their internal teams where they need specialist experience they may not have in-house. We’ve worked with agencies of all types: brand, design, digital, PR, writing, advertising, policy and public affairs. We offer a ‘white label’ service so you can use us as an addition to your team and we also help agencies with independent customer audits so we can find out how you’re really doing, too.
2: You’re a business
Organisations of all shapes and sizes work with us – from corporates to charities, from small start-ups to established global concerns. We help them to unearth opportunities and to help make the most of them. We’ve picked apart customer and donor journeys for charities, created punchy messaging for industrial manufacturers, turned sales pitches upside down and developed brand and communications strategies for all of the above…and then some. We like a challenge. Hand them over.
“Working with Jo has been a breath of fresh air. She authentically and meticulously explored our organisation’s dreams, mission and values with all our staff and critical stakeholders and has brought this together in a clarifying and galvanising rebrand. We couldn’t be more chuffed. You’re a wizard. ”Holly Race-Roughan Artistic Director, Headlong Theatre, London
“Jo makes everyone feel good.Chris TozerCreative Director, Fiasco Design
She’s got a natural way with words and an affable charm that puts everyone at immediate ease. Using that to her advantage, she’s able to ask those difficult but necessary questions, to really get under the skin of any organisation. Be it in a stakeholder interview, a team workshop, a strategic presentation or within a brand voice, she blends insight, creativity and verbal expression to create lively and effective work. Always a pleasure.”
“Jo is one of those people every marketeer should have in their little black book of amazing associates.
We needed a major rebrand for our company following a landmark investment. Jo led our senior team and developed a bold and brave new brand strategy for our business: moving quickly but purposefully with us to full relaunch in less than 6 months.
Jo came up with ‘Ogi’ as our new name – and the core idea at the centre of our rebrand. It felt at once radical and also completely ‘right’ for a Welsh tech company that wants to change the game. She also helped us to bring our brand off the page with a distinctive tone-of-voice: giving us a multi-dimensional, characterful brand, that is so much more than a logo.
Jo’s vision and direction has given our company – and Wales - a stand-out brand to own. A brand that we hope everyone will grow to love as much as we do.Mari StephensCMO, Ogi
