Total Solar Eclipses are Rare; so is True Brand Alignment.

Total Solar Eclipse

Today, something remarkable happens — a phenomenon that won’t come again until August 23rd, 2044. It’s a total solar eclipse that will grace the skies over the United States. This celestial event occurs when the sun and moon are in perfect alignment. So, if you look out your window, chances are (and depending on where you live!) you will see the sun and moon in unison. It starts in Texas at 1:27 PM CDT and concludes in Maine at 3:35 PM EDT. The totality phase will last up to 4 minutes and 27 seconds, a duration that might seem short, but surpasses the amount of time most companies are in total brand alignment. 

Brand alignment means making sure that everything a company does matches its values and message. It’s about being consistent in how a brand presents itself to customers. This includes things like product design, marketing and how staff interact with customers. When a company gets this right, it builds trust with customers and keeps them coming back.

We evaluate every aspect of a brand’s positioning to ensure it connects with investors, attracts customers and draws top talent.
