About_Animation_C.gif

Since 1991, branding has been our focus and is the purpose for which Paragraph was founded. Branding is more than a logo, tagline, or advertisement. It is the bond formed between an organization and its audiences. Using our proven BrandBond® methodology we look to each client’s larger picture–its vision, offering, culture, and objectives to guide and frame the brand strategy. Our strategies are custom-tailored for each of our clients based on their business goals and developed through a collaborative and transparent process grounded in research and understanding.

 

 

TEAM

Our team works together to solve branding and communication issues for our clients. Different from most agencies, at Paragraph there is only an “A team;” our entire staff works collaboratively with our clients throughout every phase of the engagement to ensure a dynamic product, positive experience, and effective outcome.
