Strategy consulting firm Stone & River chose us as their brand partner earlier this year.

Stone & River work with leading retail and food & beverage brands including McDonalds, Costa Coffee, John Lewis and Prezzo as well as a host of people focused business.

Through CoCreation we were able to test our concepts with leaders of some of the globe’s leading F&B and retail brands.

The process helped create a compelling narrative, including purpose, values, culture and propositions and a visual identity system that captured Stone & River’s unique culture.

The brand launched in early Summer 2019.

The full project case study will be up on our website soon.
