Abacus – an integrated marketing agency in London

by Steve Brown on November 30, 2018

Abacus is an integrated marketing agency in London – we work with a diverse range of clients, including blue-chip corporates such as Canon, Kuehne + Nagel and Bloomberg, as well as with lots of start-up enterprises and SMEs (small to medium-sized businesses). The needs of each client are of course always going to be unique – however, the need for our services is largely determined by the size of the client we are working with, and they tend to fit into one of these two categories. We tend to work with forward-thinking, ambitious businesses who understand the benefits of working with a passionate and trustworthy marketing agency such as Abacus.

What is a strategic brand proposition?

by Steve Brown on November 15, 2016

The Entrepreneur website defines a strategic brand proposition as “The marketing practice of creating a name, symbol or design that identifies and differentiates a product from other products.” Which is, of course true, this only tells half the brand story – the visual or creative part. To us, a strategic brand proposition is just as important. It defines the culture and personality of a business, congruent with its vision and values.
