SmartCo

The Smart Co. started with a simple question:
 How can the toaster pastry become a delicious, nutrition-packed everyday staple?

The answer they heard? “IMPOSSIBLE!” 
But they didn’t believe that rubbish for a minute, and with the help of Motto, we dug deep and fought for a smarter tart. A tart we’d be proud to eat.

And that’s how the Smart Tart™ came to be. It may seem genius, but to us it felt like a no-brainer.

Keetsa

Every night’s sleep is consequential. And, let’s face it, sometimes elusive. But how well you live depends on how well you sleep. How much energy you have. How clearly you think. How happy you are. Your mattress, truth be told, is a pivotal life tool.

Like many brands that approach Motto, Keetsa was at a crossroads. The 11-year-old brand was once a pioneer, but had lost it’s way in a market where other mattress brands were taking over. They needed a shot in the arm—a bold, disruptive shot to the moon. Motto gave Keetsa an entire brand makeover, soup to nuts, and the before/after transformation is staggering.

Munk Pack

Munk Pack is the first ever on-the-go food in a pouch for adventurers. A delicious Gluten Free, Vegan and Non-GMO snacks for the trail and the city.

We started working with Munk Pack when their founders, Toby and Michelle Glienke, were still making fruit and oatmeal smoothies in their kitchen and selling at local farmers’ markets. From their professional lives to their camping adventures, they were always looking for portable, healthy, great tasting foods that were minimally processed, without the additives and fillers you find in most snacks.

They couldn’t find it, so they created it themselves and disrupting a traditional category by bringing pouch-filled food to adults. The brand takes its inspiration from nature to create delicious products with high quality, real ingredients for balanced nutrition on the go.

Even approached Motto as a scaling startup desperately in need of uniting the brand under a comprehensive language. With recent success on HSN and a partnership with Napster, defining the brand for Even was critical.

Money on Honey

Money on Honey is a clean caramel treat made from honey instead of corn syrup.

Michelle Crochet, founder of Droga Chocolates, and creator of Money on Honey is a certified sweet tooth. So when everyone told her that caramel couldn’t be made without processed corn syrup, she took it as a bet and put her “Money on Honey.” With a little determination and some help from the honey bees, she created a uniquely delicious, clean caramel treat made from wildflower honey, fresh cream and real butter. You can find it at Starbucks, Whole Foods and other popular retailers.

Fort Worth Barber Shop

Forth Worth Barbershop mixes an old school feel with a new school approach. Our task was to create a website that brought the physical shop to life online. Motto art directed a photoshoot to capture lifestyle “in the moment” photos and staff headshots that illustrate the shop’s cool, laid-back culture. We then designed a site to educate and engage customers about the unique barbershop experience.

Their research was thorough and in-depth, resulting in a fantastic end product that guides branding choices. The team had great project management, using a variety of tools to track progress.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the vice president at Chance, a sporting ball company. We sell basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs that are trendy and stylish. Our products use vibrant colors, prints, and styles so that customers can express themselves more when they’re on the field.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Motto?

We launched in early February with just a templated theme from Shopify. We wanted to solidify our brand and knew what we wanted to say, but we weren’t sure how to say it or who we should be saying it to. So, we started looking for a partner to help with our brand deck.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Motto immediately went through several rounds of phone calls and questionnaires to get to know our brand and determine what we wanted. They also conducted competitor research to better understand the market. They then presented the results and told us what they thought would work best. At the end of the engagement, they provided a detailed brand deck that went over the Chance brand, our tone, and our target audience.

What is the team composition?

We had a project manager and a few other team members to help craft our deck.

How did you come to work with Motto?

I found them by researching different agencies online. They stuck out because of the work they’d already done and their own story. I watched some videos on their website and felt they’d be a great fit. I talked to a few other companies, but we best gelled with Motto. They understood what we wanted and how to address our concerns.

How much have you invested with them?

In total, we spent about $12,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from February–March 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We don’t have any quantitative metrics, but the brand deck has been a great guide when we’ve needed to make difficult decisions. Before, we didn’t have a clear direction, but now it’s easy to make those decisions.

How did Motto perform from a project management standpoint?

They were on top of everything and provided Gantt charts to lay out exactly when things would be delivered. They responded quickly, and we had no issues with them. We also used Basecamp to track progress.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They put in a lot of effort for every project, which shows how much they care. You can tell they’ve thought about their solutions instead of just providing a last-minute fix.

Motto took time to understand the company and met every project requirement. The new brand identity reaches a much wider audience while still maintaining core company values. The partnership is so good that future engagements with Motto are in the works.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm Chief Operating Officer of KEETSA Inc. We sell mattresses online and in stores for retail and wholesale.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Motto?

We needed to rebrand ourselves in order to stay fresh and interesting. The mattress market is constantly changing with new companies appearing every day, so we needed a way to capture customer attention. We wanted to do this while maintaining the core company values we’ve built over the last 10 years.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Motto thoroughly interviewed our employees, customers, and partners to better understand our company. Afterwards, they brainstormed and brought us ideas for our rebranding strategy. From there, they delivered a new logo, brand strategy, personality, and company story. We’re currently working on a new website and product images.

What is the team composition?

I work with 5 people mainly, including both founders, a designer, a project manager, and another professional who researches the company and organizes the brand strategy ideas.

How did you come to work with Motto?

I did research online and found several marketing companies that had past work similar to what we wanted. I reached out to them, and Motto was the most thorough and prompt in communicating with us. I even spoke to their founder, which helped me understand how they work and made me confident that they would deliver.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve spent around $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2017, and the work is ongoing. The new brand identity was completed in February, but we’re still working on the new website and product photography, which should be completed in the next 5–7 months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Motto understood our specific requirements for rebranding the company and delivered beautifully. The new logo is young and bold, which is just what we asked for. They helped us reach a wider and younger audience, which is awesome. We’re happy to be working with them.

How did Motto perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re thorough and detail oriented. When we initially started the project, they planned a specific timeline, and we stuck to it, even with all the revisions and changes.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re an amazing team of highly professional people who are sincere and easy to work with. We foresee having a long-term relationship with them for future marketing projects and campaigns. We work so closely together that it feels like they’ve become our own internal marketing team.

Sales doubled after brand launch. Motto’s tailored approach ensures unique designs that stand out in any industry. Their meticulous planning and documentation keeps the project on schedule. By sharing their own insights, they bestow a keen understanding of branding fundamentals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We're a mattress manufacturer that sells direct to the public nationwide. I served as chief marketing officer when we first hired Motto.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Motto?

Having been around since 1931, we wanted to update our branding to connect with modern customers, especially in this new digital environment.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started with a discovery phase. Motto talked to several people within our organization to get an idea of our company, and also analyzed our existing marketing strategies. From here, they developed several excellent branding options for us to choose from.

Once a decision was made, they helped with everything from frontend website design to the look of our products. The process took several months, but they completely overhauled our customer experience and essentially built our brand identity from scratch.

We kept adding things to our initial scope as Motto taught us about branding. We found that many of the suggestions they had made upfront were the right choice, after all, so we happily expanded the project.

What is the team composition?

Sunny [Bonnell, CEO, Motto] is our main point of contact, though we’ve also spoken with Ashleigh [Hansberger, Co-founder, Motto] on occasion.

How did you come to work with Motto?

I found a number of companies through an Internet search, but none of them seemed to understand our goals. They tried to apply formulaic solutions based on the strategies of our competitors. Motto, on the other hand, understood that we needed our own unique identity. They wanted to do something fresh with our company to set us apart in the industry.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent at least six figures.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2015 and our relationship is ongoing. While we completed our initial stage at the end of 2015, the project is always evolving.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Our sales doubled within two months of launching our new brand identity.

How did Motto perform from a project management standpoint?

They're a well-oiled machine. They hit every deadline and kept the project organized through project management software. Our discussions are documented to ensure we’re all on the same page.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate that they didn’t try to apply generic, boilerplate solutions. Instead of tweaking the branding of our competitors, they took us in an entirely different direction to help set us apart. This scared us at first, but we trusted them – and it worked!

They also value their clients. Even though we currently hire them for smaller projects, they pay us the same attention as when they worked on our initial, large-scale venture.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind.

Compared to other agencies, Motto's team has a greater sense of professionalism and creativity that makes them ideal business partners. They are unafraid to think outside of the box and create meaningful products that get their clients closer to their goals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a small business startup called Salt of the Earth and I am the founder. We sell primarily men's goods that are made in the USA and are natural, absolute essentials of what we carry with us each day. I handle all of our day-to-day operations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Motto?

We understood the importance of having cohesiveness and a common voice in our market, especially when it comes to marketing. We approached Motto to help define our identity without having too many tangibles.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started by filling out questionnaires about who we are, what we're trying to do, and what our goals were. Motto wanted to understand the core of our company to make sure that they were a good fit for us.

We then had a series of open conversations to further define our strategy and funnel all of that information to one place. Once they had a pretty good concept of our company, they asked for a series of images of things that we like and don't like. They scoured through those photos and developed three themes we could work with. We selected one of the three.

The final deliverables we received from Motto were a number of assets for our brand mark, including the imagery, color themes, and specific typography. 

I worked primarily with the two co-founders: Sunny Bonnell and Ashleigh Hansberger.

How did you come to work with Motto?

This was our first engagement with a branding agency. We did a heavy search for providers for about six months, and received around three proposals. I did quite a bit of research and ultimately decided to go with Motto.

I could sense that they were more hungry, bold, outgoing, and brash as far as breaking the norms. Motto focuses on quality and truly understanding what is important and meaningful rather than some of the other companies that submitted proposals. You could sense that they had a more corporate environment.

How much have you invested with Motto?

We spent $15,500. The original budget was $15,000, so there was one minor change.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with Motto in April 2017 and the project is now complete.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did Motto perform from a project management standpoint?

They were a real pleasure to work with. The Motto team was very professional, courteous, and helpful. They handled the project very well.

What did you find most impressive about Motto?

Motto has a passion for this kind of work. They are great at digging in and understanding our goals and visions. I'm even more pleased now than when I was when we first began working with them. As we continue to grow, I have no doubt that we will go back to them.

Are there any areas Motto could improve?

Not really - all in all, it was a great experience working with Motto and we're extremely pleased with our finished results.

It was a big branding project, involving a lot of design work. Motto created a manifesto for the company, a brand identity, logo, photoshoots, and collateral. The website was also a part of that.

How did you come to work with Motto?

Our CMO did a review for quite a number of companies. He was referred to Motto and had several calls with them. After talking to them, we were pretty sure that this was the right company for us.

How much have you invested with Motto?

We’ve spent more than $100,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started November 1, 2016. A big chunk of branding work has already been completed. The website is still undergoing some work, so we will probably continue collaborating with them in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I think Motto’s work was exceptional and outstanding. We’ve been getting amazing feedback from stakeholders, investors, and consumers about what we have been doing and what it’s done for us. We see a lot of very positive indications. There are more shares, likes, and engagement on the website. That’s because Motto enabled us to create content that people are interested in. Across the board, the reception is very positive.

How did Motto perform from a project management standpoint? 

Sunny and Ashleigh are a very inspiring leadership team to work with. They make sure that the actual deliverables are done very well. It has been a great experience to work with them, particularly for executives in the company, because they took us on a voyage. It has resonated and not just on the specific stuff that we hired them for.

Are there any areas Motto could improve?

Not that I can think of. I was extremely pleased. They did what they said they would do when they said they would do it. They are very passionate, responsible, and creative people.
