How do you brand a professional service firm, really?



Five steps to a strong brand.

As marketers, we know that your firm’s brand is a lot more than the logo on your stationery. But the true meaning of a “brand,” especially for professional service firms, is difficult to define. Ask ten people and you will probably get ten different explanations.

A New Brand for a New Client – Take a “Peak”

We are excited to announce the launch of a cohesive, new brand for our client, Peak Financial Management!

Peak is a boutique, fee-only wealth management firm. Peak needed a completely new brand to differentiate them from competitors, resonate with existing and potential clients, and consistently position the firm across all forms of marketing.

When Peak came to us, their website was very outdated and generic. The site’s imagery, like many of their competitors’, relied on cliched photos (families, retired couples, clients talking with an adviser, calculators, and the like.) After getting to know the people at Peak and their core values, we created messaging and visuals that are unique to the firm and memorable to their audience. The homepage animation uses photos from nature that fade from full color to black and white (leaving one item in color) illustrating the tagline, “We see the difference.” Peak’s new website is engaging and elegant with an approachable, down-to-earth feel. It is appealing to sophisticated visitors such as college faculty, physicians, entrepreneurs, business owners, and C-level executives.
