Without an overarching architecture on how brands, positioning and messaging work inside the larger corporate organization, too often the answer is, “Ok.” The business/product/brand unit feels good.

At Cohesion, we have worked with complex, branded organizations since 1999. We’ve developed a process to develop corporate brand platforms, to consolidate and leverage equity across all audiences, issues, products and services. More importantly, this work creates an evolution that sets these efforts on the most efficient, consistent and relevant path possible.
