The Partners believes that strong brands are built through the seamless and continual combination of intelligent brand strategy and outstandingly brilliant creativity. The balance and fuse of these skills is what makes The Partners unique.
The Partners has collaborated with Millward Brown and BrandZ on the world’s first financially quantified analysis of how brand-building activities drive growth in brand value. Taking ten years of BrandZ valuation data and uniquely combining this with Millward Brown consumer opinions of these brands, the findings clearly demonstrate that investing in brand positioning and identity produces markedly greater returns in brand value when compared to, or used in conjunction with strong advertising.
