St. Louis + Branding

Next-level branding for St. Louis businesses

From Riverview to Mount Pleasant, we’re putting St. Louis brands on the world stage

St. Louis has an economy most cities can only envy; a leader in manufacturing and healthcare, as well as a historic hub for both rail and maritime shipping, the Gateway to the West is on the verge of exploding into multiple global markets. How do St. Louis’ best brands handle that kind of jump? When they partner with TOP, our team of strategists, data analysts, market researchers, and creative geniuses supply designs that inspire, contagious messaging, and branding strategy that resonates, all in the name of a strikingly unique market position. From single-project consultation to complete brand overhauls, our team of local experts brings a wealth of experience and a global perspective to your efforts within St. Louis and beyond.

  • Full-service brand positioning and architecture
  • B2C and B2B brand strategy
  • Content creation
  • Asset design

At TOP we guide you through a multi-step strategic process where we’ll ask tough questions that allow us to solidify your unique positioning and redefine your KPIs for peak efficiency. Is your technology, product, or service new, or novel? What problems does it solve? How do we minimize costs, and where can we invest in order to accelerate the marketing of your product? Can we test messaging not just in the STL, but Chesterfield, St. Charles, and Springfield? Should you scale nationally, even globally, sooner rather than later?

When you execute strategies that aren’t tailored to your company’s unique value proposition, you waste precious time, money, and resources that should be going toward developing your brand. With TOP, you’ll receive a holistic analysis of obstacles hampering your growth, as well as a report on the opportunities available to maximize your profits.
