Our vision is that every business owner and manager has access to a systematic and complete branding solution. Today, over 90% of companies do not use any branding services and kludge their brand together using diverse graphic design, printing and marketing companies. We aim to empower our customers by using our online tools and services to become masters of their brands.

OUR VISION

Our mission is to provide a world-class solution for a systematic and complete branding process without tying them to us.  All our solutions include the creation of a brand style guide, so business owners and executives can select their own favorite graphic design teams and printing companies but don't need to juggle several silo teams anymore, so they can finally focus on their vision.

OUR MISSION

Here is why you should switch to Brand Builder Box™

What's in the Box?

Logo Design

Based on your responses from the branding questionnaire we will develop a brand and create your official branding style guide.  You will work with our brand specialist via email and over the phone to find out and capture how exactly you want your brand to feel and look. 

Our design team will start working on creating your new logo. The logo is the most important visual element of your brand. This is why we will create the logo first. For us, creating a logo is not a process that happens somewhere in the back-office. Our approach to logo design is to involve a variety of people to capture its perception and possible feelings that a logo might create. When you receive the first set of logo suggestions from us, you might be surprised by the quality of their designs and how relevant they are. We promise that you will love your new logo.

The purpose of every brand is to create awareness. This is why our designers are very trend-perceptive. Styles in graphic design change constantly and customers tend to be aware of the smallest shifts. Our teams apply their experience, skills, and knowledge to create marketing material that will make your company or organization look relevant. And the best part is that we will make sure that all designs are 100% true to your brand. Since we developed your unique style guide, we not only follow all its definitions but also provide you with all the data you need to have other teams build artifacts that represent your brand.  

Our printing division has been in business for almost forty years and has served thousands of companies. The beauty of the Brand Builder Box™ is that you get not only all your online promotional material but also a whole printed marketing set. You don't need to worry about getting your designs printed or distributed. We will send you your branding box with all you need to get started. Of course, we make it also very easy to reorder any of your material from us online. We ship to the entire United States.

We will facilitate Brand Audits and Brand Workshops with your team.  You will receive full access to your Brand Audit Account, which you can entirely manage in the cloud. Our team can create and set up your own Brand Audit Account before we help build and lead a team to conduct research, clarify strategy, define identity, produce touchpoints, and manage brand assets. Our graphic design team will create and deliver all touchpoints included in your package.

Printed Marketing Material

We design all elements with the online and printing aspect in mind. Computers, mobile devices, and print require different color codes. For example, RGB colors are used for computer screens, CYMK is used for digital printing, and PMS colors are mainly used for offset printing. We make sure that all your artwork comes in all three different formats. This is why you will never be stuck when you plan to run online campaigns.

Online Marketing Material

A McKinsey & Company study showed that top-ranked brands consistently outperform the MSCI World benchmark* by 73%.

* The MSCI World Index, which is part of The Modern Index Strategy, is a broad global equity benchmark that represents large and mid-cap equity performance across 23 developed markets countries. It covers approximately 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalization in each country and MSCI World benchmark does not offer exposure to emerging markets.

*) We are able to provide you with almost every marketing product you can imagine. Check out our current catalog here.

Branding is why a customer buys from us.

Do you know what your company brand stands for? What are people saying about your business when you are not listening? Why do customers come to you and won't go to your competitors? They come to you because they trust your brand. Customers are not primarily interested in your products or your services; they are interested in the promise you make. It does not matter how big your business is, or if they know you in person or not. If people trust your company brand, they will come to your business.

Marketing is when a customer buys from us the first time.
