Why should cities, regions or countries work with CivicBrand?

Branding and destination marketing are all about implementation. You can have the greatest brand strategy but if it’s implemented poorly and has no support or buy-in, it will fail.

Our process is all about engaging stakeholders throughout the entire process. We turn residents and business owners into brand champions and arm them with the tools to succeed.

We also really focus on embracing and managing diversity and contrast. Diversity and contrast are what makes communities great, but it can also be a major challenge to picking a strategic direction if not managed properly.

For example, in some communities you may have conflicting viewpoints – those who want the city to grow and those who want things to stay the same, those who have been there for generations and those who are brand new. They all have different goals and opinions and a true brand platform needs to support them.

Our decade of navigating these challenges has refined our process so that we harness that contrast instead of being challenged by it.
