To outsmart the competition, you have to think better. And think differently. Change the context. Shift the viewpoint. Make unexpected connections. Challenge conventions. Visualize the extremes. Test the hypotheses. Leave ego at the door.


That’s how TKO approaches strategy development and the creative process.


Of course, it helps that our people have the sophisticated analytical tools and models necessary to prove the point.
Plus the digital mastery to help visualize solutions.

    The first step in building a successful brand is developing a strategy for differentiating the product or service from competitive offerings. At TKO, we work closely with our clients to identify or create differentiators, leveraging existing research, or executing quantitative or qualitative research studies. We dig deep, talking to customers, potential customers, partners, influencers, and our clients to build a strong brand strategy, positioning and personality, supported by an effective, persuasive messaging platform.

    We love creating packaging that jumps off the retail shelf. But before we ever start a design, we dig deep to understand the consumer audience, the competition, and the retail environment where the war for shelf space takes place. Armed with that understanding, we are often asked to develop product names, and create message hierarchies, ensuring that the words on every package impact, resonate with and persuade the target customer to make the purchase, framed by design that tells the brand story with immediacy. Look for our packaging designs on leading national brands including Newman's Own, Back to Nature, Litehouse Foods, Martinelli's and many more.
