Who We Are. What We Think.
Most companies send you scores of product ideas, special deals, or simply provide catalogs for you to choose items. However, what’s really important here? It’s the message: the strategy and conceptual thinking behind the idea you need to communicate.
Our attention is on creating an emotional connection to promotional products that have utility and carry a meaningful message conveying the very essence of your brand. Branded merchandise rarely takes the starring role. Nevertheless, it has a critical role in the supporting cast of communication tools to help build and communicate your brand.
At On Brand Promotions, only the best creative thinking survives. We
take abstract thoughts, make them tangible, and pair them with other
ideas, changing light and arrangement until the big picture comes into
focus. Then we expand the concept, develop the creative strategy, and lastly, build the products to communicate the idea.
The time we spend with you collaborating on your brand voice and distilling your message makes our approach valuable. We are fixators on detail and flawless execution, connecting quality brand merchandise from our key suppliers to the marketing strategy we tailor to suit your exceptional brand needs.
In our business, everyone has availability to thousands of products. Our goal is to provide creativity and clarity in an industry clouded with complexity and confusion with too many products, too many vendors, and too little understanding and insight in connecting your brand merchandise to your brand strategy.
What We Believe
- The power of the imagination to see all the possibilities—thinking outside the box is fun.
- Embracing inherent constraints—thinking inside the box. It is hard work, but is the most rewarding and is necessary for creating real solutions.
- Making the simple complicated is easy. Making the complicated simple...that's creative thinking.
- Creative turbulence—proves we are passionate about our ideas, willing to defend them, and it allows the best ideas to rise to the top.
- Collaboration is the basis for all innovation—and joy.
- New ideas and new thinking often exists on the fringe of our organization. We must constantly look outside our own walls.
- The power of curious observation: just watching people—how they conduct themselves and the words they choose give you quick sense of what is, or is not happening.
- Taking time to think—about nothing in particular. Just let it flow!
- The inevitability of perpetual change: providing process and planning to guide our actions, while understanding that we operate in a dynamic marketplace where flexibility and adaptability pay huge dividends.
- K.I.S.S.—“Keep It Simple Stupid”—also stands for “Know If Something Sucks.”
- Know thyself—then get comfortable with it. Be true to yourself.
