A snapshot of our projects.
Waterfront Alliance is a US based nonprofit organisation with a growing coalition of more than 1,100 partners and shared goal: to bring about real change to the New York-New Jersey region’s waterways and 700+ miles of shoreline, and beyond on a national level.
The organisation required “direction, clarity and a clear message” to demonstrate that they are “much more than a convener”. One of their key challenges was connecting with the next generation, whom will be instrumental in advocating and supporting the organisation to drive its success long into the future.
Our process was deep and broad, including public brand perception research, staff engagement and multiple stakeholder workshops.

“The impact has been instrumental! Building a new brand is not an easy task. Sophie took all the necessary time to better understand what I was trying to build, achieve and communicate. She challenged the thought process, guided me in defining the path, and made it fun and enjoyable. She also helped us build a website that really reflects our identity.”— Georges Khneysser, Founder, QBIT Capital

Other work (with Grindstone)
Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA)
CERA required a brand narrative to generate more philanthropic income to support its world-leading research, and strengthen its presence and reputation with key stakeholder groups.
Their new tagline, ‘Hope in sight’, and complementing narrative symbolise positive ambition and instil faith.
Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority
The greatest challenge for the new Authority was to balance management of the liveability of local communities and enhancing the visitor experience, with its fundamental role of protecting the environment for the benefit of future generations.
Their new tagline, ‘Continue the story’, honours sharing the history, values, practices and lore of the Traditional Owners, and empowers present and future generations to collectively care for the Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks.
GMHBA required a employer brand strategy and powerful Employee Value Proposition (EVP) to invigorate their positioning with existing and potential employees to answer the question: “Why should I work for your company instead of somewhere else?”
After a challenging pandemic in which life experiences have been less than remarkable for most of us, their new tagline, ‘Rediscover remarkable’, weaves in one of their brand values and offers a powerful career promise at GMHBA.
