If a brand has lost its connection with its audience, Syndicate Sub Rosa examines why this is occurring. Once analyzed and understood, it can solve the issue and reconnect the brand with its people.
Alexei Orlov, MTM CEO, is incredibly skilled with the use of ‘applied empathy’ as a core marketing tactic. This connection very well could be what initially drew Orlov to Syndicate Sub Rosa. He acquired the branding agency in 2017 to make it an essential part of his specialist-driven brand-activating corner of the marketing world he calls MTM (Moments That Matter).
Once unearthing the breakdown of communication between a brand and its marketing message, Syndicate Sub Rosa looks at its data to create brand messaging solutions that will stay relevant, strong, and echo timelessly across the globe. In other words, while the company strives to remain culturally and contextually relevant, Syndicate Sub Rosa assists them in realizing that the most vital campaigns transcend time by focusing on the practice of evoking strong emotion instead of relying on temporary fads. Catchy advertisements work short-term, but long-term connections build a customer base that will follow a brand for life.
To this end, while building a new marketing campaign, approach, or platform, Syndicate Sub Rosa pays special attention to the responses of multiple test audiences and continually refines its approach before bringing a brand to life. The average marketing campaign for consumers consists of ad campaigns, digital experiences, creative copy, spatial design, and a strong new visual identity that embodies a brand. Syndicate Sub Rosa gives brands the essentials and so much more.
Syndicate Sub Rosa sports an impressive list of clients that includes:
- Tiger Woods / TGR
- Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop
- Herman Miller
