We create and activate
brands people love.
SIGNAL Brand Innovation is a brand consultancy and strategic design firm that helps organizations and their leaders align their brand with their business strategy to take great leaps forward.
A brand that powers great leaps forward is a brand that is loved.
because the brand is so crystal clear on who it is and what sets it apart that it attracts the right customers and employees, aligns the team around what matters most, and pushes away competitors.
because it tells a brand story they can see themselves in. A story that they’re proud of and they believe in. A story they own. A brand story they love to share, in word and in deed, with contagious enthusiasm.
because it makes a promise so magnetic and delivers an emotional experience so meaningful they can’t resist it. Consistency keeps them coming back for more — and inspires brand devotion they can’t help but talk about.
B2B or B2C, for-profit or nonprofit, established or emerging brands — it doesn’t matter. Today’s customers and employees alike demand nothing less than brands that earn their love.

Beyond the crucible
Founder & Author
“SIGNAL served as a true partner in building our brand. Not only did they help us discover and communicate what makes us true, meaningful, and different, but they also helped navigate the political landscape of our organization to make the brand real to stakeholders at the university.”Sharon Ayala
Point Loma Nazarene University
Associate Vice President, Marketing
“The SIGNAL team was tasked with brand development, and to say they rose to the task is an understatement. They were able to build not just one but five beautiful brands that had to cohabitate under the same roof yet remain independent of one another. The tools and structure they were able to create allowed us to remain flexible, while still maintaining a strong core brand ethos.”Amy Veal
