To support World Storytelling Day, we've highlighted six videos that showcase the power of brand-driven video storytelling. We believe video is one of the most powerful tools to go beyond product or service and offer an experience. Video is the ideal way to showcase purpose, core values, and the mission of a brand.
We believe in helping CEOs and CMOs create brands that matter because they matter to people. We’re working to change the world for the better, one brand at a time.

For many companies, the core of every strong reputation is an exceptional customer experience. For medical practices and healthcare organizations, this can be tough to achieve. After all, culture defines behavior, and consistent delivery of that behavior is key to influencing all levels of the patient experience. Without a clear understanding of your organization’s culture, the expression of its behavior can run amok of your brand, as well as your customers’ trust.

Let’s be honest; designers are in the industry of endless feedback and iterations. We are the people who constantly look back and question, “How can I make this better?” It’s our second nature.
About 10 years ago, I started writing a book about idgroup’s approach to branding.
Well, they say all good things take time, and that is certainly true in this case. But it’s happening. Yesterday, the team at idgroup celebrated my signing of a contract with Maven House Press for the publication of The Next Evolution of Branding: Aligning Purpose, Performance and Perception. Over the years, the team at idgroup, colleagues, friends and family have challenged my views and cheered on moments of clarity as I noodled and doodled with ideas that have finally come life on the pages of this manuscript. I have learned it takes a team to write a book, and fortunately I am surrounded with one of the best!
