Starfish is an independent branding agency in NYC with a non-traditional perspective. We provide all of the services that marketing consultants, advertising agencies, and branding agencies deliver under one roof – without silos or handoffs.
The brand is the sum total of all of the interactions a customer has with the brand. We can help you define your brand, your brand experience, and improve your overall brand strategy.
You can’t impact every customer touchpoint. But you can manage the overall journey by defining it and focusing on the touchpoints that have the greatest impact on purchase. We can help you identify these through a customer journey audit and mapping.
Our rigorous approach to brand strategy development begins with you – sussing out your DNA and the attributes that make your brand distinct in order to deliver an impactful, differentiated, and true-to-you brand idea. This brand strategy is the foundation for a more compelling brand experience.
