Who We are
Brands to life® define stories, create visual languages and develop ideas that make you laugh, make you cry and slap you in the face every now and then.
We’re a Melbourne based branding and creative agency who have helped bring some of Australia’s newest and oldest brands to life. Together, our team of Researchers, Strategists, Brand Managers, Creatives, Copywriters, Art Directors and Designers, uncover what makes a brand unique.
Our branding, advertising and digital thinking has launched, repositioned and refreshed local, national and international brands. We’ve intensified engagement, got more bums on seats, boosted donations, changed behaviour, increased sales, raised awareness (and a few eyebrows) along the way.
