At TOP, we know Austin customers and companies and have the right combination of strategy and creativity to bring your brand to life with a single word. Your brand name has to work across multiple channels and in every possible format in order to reach diverse audiences.

We determine how Austin customers will engage with your brand and do a deep dive on the competitive landscape in order to create a name that simultaneously fits your industry and stands out from the pack. We test naming options across customer personas and generate entire narratives around your company’s unique story, values, competencies, and more. Then we distill these learnings into a single word or phrase that is both iconic and demonstrative of who your brand is and what you do.

What makes us different?

Austin is full of amazing names

Our approach to naming for our Austin clients is one part strategic exercise backed by years of experience and one part explosion of creativity fueled by our desire to create brand names we want to tell our Austin friends about. We view names as falling into one of four categories each with different parameters, levels of creativity, and audiences in mind. We do our research of your brand, your competitive landscape, your target Austin audiences, and suggest multiple names across this spectrum, each with clearly defined thinking and a creative edge.

Austin is a town that values the strategic and the creative. We’re a town of tech companies and artists, musicians and entrepreneurs. So a creative name without strategy won’t fly any more than a strategic name without art. Austin is a town of both sides and we know how to combine them.
