Episode 3: Important Elements of a Strong Brand with CEO Tracy Marlowe

By Sarah Snyder-Casteñeda on April 10th, 2019

A lot of Tracy’s initial discussions with clients involve the important elements of a strong brand. In about 80-90% of the initial conversations, brand in their mind is a logo and color palette.

“We really believe at Creative Noggin that a brand should be an authentic reflection of what your organization’s inner workings truly are,” says Tracy. “We feel that it’s very important that you brand from the inside out.”

A good brand exploration entails talking to members of the organization at all levels – from executives down to salespeople – to find out what makes them different. Here’s the thing: your brand is not your product or service.

“Your brand is your essence. It’s what it is that is evocative about you that makes people, when they step away from you, think and feel? It’s very intangible and no other companies should have it.”
