If you asked five prospects to describe your firm, would you get five different stories?
We can help you do something about that
Most professional services firms were founded by practitioners, offering similar services to similar audiences. So buyers can have a hard time telling firms apart.
That’s why we make differentiation a top priority. From strategy to aesthetics to language, we build multi-dimensional brands that turn heads, inspire trust and drive preference.Speak with a branding expert

What is a brand?
Okay, this is a big topic. So let’s cut to the chase and distill a brand to its essence. When you boil it down, your brand has just two base components:
At Hinge, we assess then strengthen these fundamentals. The resulting success? Well, that’s your problem.

How it works
At last, you’ll know what you stand for and see a clear path forward. Behind every great brand is a thoughtful strategy. Once we have a detailed understanding of your firm, we position you against key competitors and create that hook that will stick in buyers’ minds.
Your visual brand creates critical impressions in the marketplace. As we design your brand identity, we will consider your positioning, brand architecture and any opportunities in the marketplace to set your firm apart—then tackle your new logo, tagline and brand style guidelines.
We’ll equip you for the journey ahead. We design and build the sophisticated brand tools you need to take your brand strategy to the marketplace—from a high-performance website to the online and offline collateral you need to communicate your competitive advantage.
And we make it easy to attract and keep top talent
You may not know it, but your brand is as much about attracting and retaining talent as it is about engaging new clients. Pay attention to your “employer brand” and watch your team thrive.
At Hinge, we know winning the talent wars can be tough. So we deploy the strategies and messaging today’s new employees expect and demand.
