We work on a broad collection of projects ranging from complete brand or packaging system redesigns to new websites to single SKU line extensions. Our brand-building solutions strike a balance between strategy and design by blending well-defined branding and marketing principles with inspired creative execution. This approach allows us to deliver consistent revenue growth for our clients, garners industry recognition for our creative teams and forms the basis for our many long-term partnerships.

Leadership

At Murray Brand we keep things simple. By employing a flat organizational structure and multidisciplinary team approach, we give design, project management, brand strategy and production an equal voice in solving each creative challenge. This approach delivers more comprehensive solutions, compresses project timelines and reduces unnecessary costs and overhead.

Services

Our design and brand strategy services are built around a simple idea. Strong brands distinguish themselves because they deliver a consistent message to consumers no matter what the promotional vehicle.

As such, we know the imagery and messaging that motivates consumers, we understand the competitive landscape and we're skilled at avoiding the roadblocks that can derail a project or delay a product's release to market. Tap into our channel expertise, and we’ll help your next product launch be a success.

Total Branding

Perhaps your brand needs a facelift. Perhaps your competitive landscape has changed. Maybe you're trying to attract an entirely new target audience. Whatever the reason, you may be faced with the need to undertake a total brand redesign. At Murray Brand our vision and experience enables us to create and extend your new brand identity across all promotional assets. We know your identity needs to work on everything from a mouse pad, to a retail package to the side of a truck.

Brand Glossary

Our brand glossary is a compendium of the industry and academic lexicon frequently used in marketing, brand management, design and print production. Each term and definition leverages the research and thinking of industry thought leaders including Dr. Edward Tufte at the Yale School of Design, Dr. David Aaker, Dr. Phillip Kotler at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Leatrice Eiseman, consultant to Pantone Inc. and Dr. Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

White Papers

Expertise takes time and is honed through trial, error, refinement and success. During the two decades we've practiced our craft, we've remained alert to the importance of taking the best thinking from each of the more than 3,000 projects we've executed. The result? A series of perspectives distilled from thousands of hours of real-world design, branding, consumer research and print production engagements.

Brand News

Each week, members of our team scan the Internet for relevant news, innovative approaches and provocative perspectives to ensure we are up to date and developing solutions that are beyond conventional thinking.

Informed Creativity. It's at the core of Murray Brand's commitment to quality and partnership.
