A brand is not only a wonderful place to work for but a school of values and live-how to learn and grow from.

To understand how to help brands become better purpose-organizations before and after the Covid19 pandemic is to help bring a new “problem-engaged” mindset beyond buzzwords of AI, disruptions, agility, authenticity, and to help find a new gratefulness for your people, your clients and your leadership.

Why? Because in today’s world brands can’t use past strategies.

We thrive to unlock extreme value that allows brands to grow disproportionately, be it a premium luxury brand, a bank, a mine, a hotel, a non-profit, a city government or a museum.

One behaviour we have found universal is the effort brands put into cultivating their communication style — tone, “presence,” level of transparency, and authenticity.

The very best brands, leader brands, have learned that effective communication is as much about authenticity and attitude as the words they speak and write. They know who they are, how they lead and what road to take to deliver their messages and products, effectively capturing the attention and aspirations of their customers and stakeholders.

The very best brands are MEANING, NOT MARKETING.

"Le sigle de Mode Diplomatique est formé d’une plume entourée d’ornements typographiques s’inspirant directement des armoiries anciennes, faisant référence à celle de Guillaume Apollinaire. Il souligne ainsi autant la prose que la créativité de son fondateur. L’ensemble forme un camé tel un bijou. La typographie Garalde, s’inspire des premiers caractères typographiques, sa forme légèrement condensée lui confère une sobre élégance. La composition du slogan, en petite capitale, fait également référence aux textes anciens dans sa forme. La combinaison des deux forme un logo intemporel, statutaire, comme s’il avait toujours existé, gravé dans le papier" Thomas Desnoyers

"The symbolism of Mode Diplomatique is made of a feather surrounded by typographic ornaments directly inspired by the heritage-fashioned coat of arms, referring to that of Guillaume Apollinaire. He thus emphasizes the prose as well as the creativity of its founder. The whole forms the appearance of a jewel. The Garalde typography has been inspired by the first typographic characters, its slightly condensed form gives it an understated elegance. The composition of the slogan, in lowercase, refers to the ancient texts in their usage. The combination of the two forms a timeless, statutory logo, as if it had always existed, engraved in the paper." Thomas Desnoyers
