Borderland Expeditions


the story

Borderland Expeditions came to our team for help with their brand identity. As a hub for all things outdoor in a small town in Northeast Tennessee, Borderland already had an upper hand as a prime resource for the outdoor enthusiasts of the area. All they needed was a brand to make it official.


the process

Borderland was counting on us to provide an identity that would speak to their audience, so we strapped on our hiking boots and got to work.

Our Goal: To define the Borderland brand and to develop their website and promotional materials.

Our Strategy: We knew the brand basics needed to be approachable and convenient for the guest experience this company was going after. So we created a cool palette with plenty of bold pops of color, easy to read prints, a memorable logo, a mobile-friendly website, and trade show displays that would efficiently serve this small business.


the result

Since the decision to invest in the development of a true Borderland brand, the company has seen growth in profit as well as reputation. And we know exactly where to go for trail riding, kayaking, and hiking in Northeast Tennessee.

Did I hear a ‘field trip’ anyone?

The Value of Brand Loyalty

The Value of Brand Loyalty

The key to brand loyalty is value.

Establishing value, increasing value, sustaining value, retaining value, advertising value, communicating value… and so on. You get it.

The value your product and/or service provides is why the customer continues to come to you. Knowing the ‘why’ helps craft your evolving ‘how’ and the loyalty grows from there.

Brand loyalty requires value to exist, visuals to be recognizable and cohesive, and consistency to carry them all the way home.

Design Study – Our Take On Branding an Interior Design Firm

Design Study – Our Take On Branding an Interior Design Firm

We set out to create a mockup for an Interior Design concept called “Studio 27.” The name emulates innovation, sparking a sense of design experimentation and discovery. As seen in the mood board, the firm is eccentric when it comes to design. Unique colors, shapes and patterns are some of the main focal points of the rooms created. This plays into the overall brand as Studio27 remains selective over the projects and clients they choose to work with. When you see the room, you will know it was the work of Studio27.

Movie Set Aesthetics We’re Enamored With

Movie Set Aesthetics We’re Enamored With

When we think of storytelling we think of the obvious: words. Words that are shared to recall an event with a friend, words that are written into a journal for one’s future self, words that are typed in courier, size 12, single spaced on the script of a film. The power of storytelling is found in its ability to evoke emotion and move an audience. Film is known best for this power of storytelling.

Nothing inspires us more than taking a trip back into time. Here’s to throwing on some bell bottoms, plaid blazers, and headphones blasting some Whitney Houston and Queen.
