strategy

,

Strategy is mindfulness. It’s not only figuring out what you want to do, it’s about understanding ‘why’ you want to do it. Knowing (and believing) in your ‘why’ inspires new and creative ‘hows’ that naturally lead to a better ‘what’—because now what you do is rich with heart and soul. Your work can bring fulfillment when it’s done for love and not money. We’re on a mission to redefine success by helping our clients find richness first, then riches.

branding

Branding is the atmosphere surrounding what you do—it’s what people feel that causes them to interact (or not) with your brand/product. We work with you to make that atmosphere clean and clear so that people are not only drawn to your brand but also feel good and engage with it.

design

.

Design is how we create your brand’s atmosphere (see previous link). It’s not just one thing, design is involved at every level of what we do—it’s how we make sense of creativity. We help you get the idea out of your head and into the world through the design and implementation of whatever is essential (i.e.–brand, websites, photos, videos, etc.) to telling your story right.

Through our Branding process we implement the newly refined messaging from the Strategy process into a brand system that not only becomes your iconic visual identity, but also strengthens the culture and communications of your team so you can move forward together.

Futures Bright is an exceptionally thoughtful and creative design firm. I’ve worked with them on numerous occasions, and each time they seem to so fully absorb the DNA of my brand or project that the solutions they came up with feel both familiar and delightfully new. I always come away inspired and confident that we are heading towards a bright future.”

Futures Bright is a breath of fresh air in Asheville—intelligent, creative and cutting-edge! Plus they take pride in, and stand behind, their design approach. Each time I sit down with them I am able to reflect on the Center's work in a new way with fresh energy and excitement.”

I’m so grateful for the unbelievable creative work Futures Bright has done to bring both of my restaurants, Baba Nahm and Bimberibon to reality. Teaming up with Futures Bright has been a very memorable experience. Their energy in creating the total package, from the naming to the physical feel/design, and all our websites has been remarkable. It has been a joy to work with them throughout this process and I look forward to more partnerships in creating and birthing other concepts in the near future. May the Future be Bright for all of us.”

Ways to work with us

We work with brands in three specific ways. Some who desire  rapid growth and brand-wide creative cohesion prefer to have us on retainer, which includes everything we offer. However, it's a big commitment—for both of us—so we believe it's important to build up to this level of relationship with a single project or strategy session.

On Retainer

The best fit if you plan on growing fast and have a big mission. We’ll integrate with your internal team and help you strategize and prioritize goals on a monthly basis. Use our intuitive energy and 10+ brand experience to increase your impact and reach your vision.

Project–based

Starting with this option we can help you clearly define and accomplish a project. We'll help you create a single focus, a list of strategic deliverables and agree upon a launch deadline. Each project runs through the same mission-driven branding process.

Strategy Session

Imagine having a team on your side, resolved to helping you process and verbalize new ideas. Our strategy sessions make room for you to work through ideas and create a plan with pointed questions about potential markets, offerings and communication strategies. Many sessions lead to a project or retainer to build out your newly articulated idea.
