We build honest, holistic brands
We craft tailored solutions to develop your brand as a whole, and create all the material necessary to reach its full potential. We believe building a brand requires more than strategy, and goes beyond simple design: our approach to branding is holistic, complete and clear. Our work is created all under one roof, ensuring consistency and accountability, while allowing us to stay on time and on budget.
"Big Agencies" suck...
... you dry. Traditional dichotomy between designers, business development consultants, ad agencies, publicists should be a thing of the past. It is not lean, and even less efficient. Our approach is radically different, allowing us to develop both strategy and design in-house, with low overhead and fast turnaround, making us more competitive, more accountable, and all-around better equipped to set you up for success in today's demanding economy.
Strategy and execution go hand-in-hand in our all-encompassing approach to brand identity. We dedicate our time and expertise to projects from start to finish, and deliver complete solutions so you can trust us with your brand as a whole. From long-term roadmap to deliverables along the way, we create everything in house. One creative direction, one team to get the job done: low overhead and less idle time makes us the ideal one-stop shop with big agency capabilities.
We know and love good design, and understand that flawless execution is the best testament of a well thought-out plan. From creating a strong logo to delivering scalable online solutions, our designers deliver fresh, original creations to complement your vision. Our exclusive relationships with the best in the biz allow us to deliver top quality work at unbeatable rates. We thrive to push the boundaries of traditional branding and ensure your brand is memorable, consistent and in line with your objectives.
Nothing makes us more proud of what we do that the great relationships we keep with all our clients. We believe in good practice, good business and good values, and strive to work with people who share a common passion for a job well done. The “no bullshit” mentality we build our success on translates into simple collaborations, honest relationships and complete accountability from day 1 to completion. The Imagists is a lean, efficient machine meant to build great brands, for great impact, at a great price.

“I created The Imagists out of necessity: necessity for me to have reliable experts to translate my vision for a brand or a company into reality, and necessity for my clients to turn to one unique entity able to guide them to completion. Although it seems like an obvious way to do business, especially at a time where budgets have shrunk and ROI is king, it turns out we are still among the very few to think about branding this way. I am very proud of the work we put out here because it is honest, great, and makes a real difference. Hopefully we get a change to spread this way of thinking on many different levels over the years!”
