You have a brand, but would like new impetus to gain more attention and strength for it again?
With creative measures, we give your brand a fresh boost and ensure that your brand triad is activated.
Many brands lose their attractiveness and appeal over time. This is often due to the fact that brand awareness has been lost within the company over the years and through day-to-day business, there is too much focus on product development rather than marketing, the initial entrepreneur is no longer active in the operative business, there has been insufficient investment in innovations, trends and staff development, there is a lack of (wo)manpower and marketing competence in the company, and strategic marketing is dealt with only sparsely or with insufficient professionalism or passion.
Through fresh impulses, various measures to strengthen the interaction with your analogue as well as digital brand touchpoints, we revitalise your brand, arouse interest and create new identification and enthusiasm factors as well as a re-sensitisation of your customers and stakeholders.
With over 16 years of strategic and operative brand responsibility in our own successful manufacturing and trading company, we can support you not only in the development and implementation of your long-term marketing goals and strategies, but also with concrete practical expertise in the implementation of methods to sell your products and services at the operational level.
We analyse your current status quo, provide recommendations for optimisation and take care of the pragmatic implementation of measures necessary to achieve the individual goals defined in advance by you or us together.

Megatrends in technology, demography, ecology, economy, society and culture are changing needs and requirements as well as target groups and business models at a rapid pace.
Therefore, it is important to continuously look beyond one's own day-to-day business and industry. For the right positioning of brands and the strategic orientation of companies, it is therefore important to invest in trend research in order to be able to identify developments at an early stage. This is the only way to check which ones could possibly change the business model, even disrupt it or, at best, contribute to the success of the company.
The longer companies skip innovation cycles, the higher the opportunity costs increase. Whether in product development, processes, human resources or marketing and sales: the consideration and, if necessary, transfer of trends to all areas of the business is therefore crucial and indispensable for success.
Sometimes, however, there is a lack of time and (wo)manpower in-house to continuously scan the market, analyse trends and check their relevance for your own business model. - This is exactly where we support you.
We offer you, from analysis to implementation:
- Trend scouting and reporting (in the area of mega and macro trends, marketing and retail trends).
- Creation of individual trend analyses tailored to the respective industry, target group and markets.
- Trend consulting and embedding/ innovation workshops
- Trend lectures and seminars for companies and institutions, also in-house as well as for (in-house) trade fairs, customer conferences and B2B events.
