Experience

We have strong strategic, proven opinions around what makes brands work. We think great branding needs to be adaptive. Products, services and organisations change fast, their brands need to flex with them.

Consistent branding just results in matching pairs. Neat, but not that useful. Consistency alone is predictable, patronising, repetitive, dull. Our approach creates strategic and coherent conversations between organisations, services & products with their various audiences.

Strategy

We work with brands big & small to create richer, more rewarding BrandWorlds to better connect & communicate with people. Our job is often based on helping our clients compete more effectively with others. Brands only exist where there is competition.

Great ideas lie at the heart of great branding. So we start with big ideas, then go about making them beautifully. A variety of bespoke tools are deployed, combined with agile research at SomeOne to uncover smarter and more compelling ways to achieve business goals.

Our work is always strategically-led. We employ a variety of rapid, proven processes to get multiple opinions aligned and things moving in a single agreed direction fast

Design

Working with traditional design groups, many organisations end up with Blanding, not Branding. Why bland? Because people don’t care about a brands positioning, they care about a brands position. No one gets excited by consistency alone, it’s dull.

We design coherent communications. They allow brands to flex into lateral, interesting ideas. These ideas ultimately create a monopoly for the products, organisations and services we launch relaunch and manage daily.

We create all sorts of things for all sorts of occasions but often the best work comes together to make what we call BrandWorlds. A strategic mix of assets that manage and capitalise on business change.

Get in touch and we'll tell you more about what makes brands happy! Here's our details, some of our work and more information about us.

How we work

We combine strategy, design and experiences to make the most of change for brands. We work in all sectors, all countries, all of the time. We invent brands with clients. Or re-invent them ready for new business challenges. We create branding, not blanding.

Unlike large, traditional groups, working with SomeOne means you meet and work with the people who actually do the work. Direct contact with SomeOne’s creative minds means ideas flow more freely, which is important as great brands need great opinions. We don’t fit projects into pre-determined processes, we create bespoke teams around each project.

Strategic ideas excite us, they shape brand futures, add value and signal change. We've moved branding from being a cost, to an asset. SomeOne helps organisations, products and services manage and profit from change. That’s why we concentrate on creating Big Ideas first, then go about making them beautifully. We often help create commercial monopolies for brands by employing creativity to connect business strategy with memorable and adaptive visual executions.
