To-the-point strategies. Business topics, consumer directions, and branding and Positioning initiatives to anticipate important market shifts.
Aesthetic drivers. Creative stories geared for the development of design capsules, category updates and compelling presentation.
Beauty goes under the big top. The painted face is on a revival tour. Nothing—not glitter, gems or jewels is off limits. It’s a tight rope walk of sorts between artfully applied product and unabashed fun.
Gaudy, shiny, over the top sparkle to catch the house lights. Think tinsel, rhinestones, sequins and mini-mirrored manicures.
Think nymphs as the main attraction. Appliques and fake (or real) flowers become one with the face and hair. A more attainable version—Rihanna’s adorned pony tail in the This Is What You Came For video.
The ‘70s are alive and well. From Pat McGrath’s epic disco party with her done up squad to her golden girls at Paris fashion week, we see metallics and iridescence as an eye catcher.
TOBE live. In-person work sessions and presentations of key consumer-brand story lines with a focus on product, messaging and design implications.
Just for you. Fresh-perspective brainstorming for tailored takes on client-specific initiatives.
We know that brands and businesses have to find their place in the world and that means balancing fitting in with standing out.
Similarly, our bespoke projects pair an understanding of the business landscape with an interest in making each client shine.
We start each project with a clean slate and build a unique perspective on the topic.
