Naming

Naming

You have six letters to tell a story. Go.

If you’ve ever named a newborn, a puppy or even a plant*, you know the struggle is real. Add in overused naming trends, pronunciation issues and trademark availability, and you’ve got one of the hardest tasks in the branding world.

It’s a challenge we happily take on – from baby formulas to body wash, private investment firms to portfolios of tech services.

Naming is about playing with languages, ideas and sounds. Balancing personal tastes with strategic briefs and brand identities. And often, leaping out of showers, beds and supermarket queues to jot down the perfect name when inspiration strikes.

* Our office plant, Fern-est Hemingway, was maybe not our best work. But we stand by it.
