CONSUMER PACKAGING

Packaging is more than just a way to get your product to market. It’s the moment of truth when your customers make their final purchasing decision. From concept through structural design, we specialize in packaging innovations that grab consumer attention and mindshare.

DIGITAL MARKETING

As fast as the technology is changing, so must your Interactive Marketing to stay on the cutting edge. From website designs to grabbing people’s attention in an onslaught of daily messaging, we’ll keep your brand top of mind.

PUBLIC RELATIONS

Any publicity is good publicity? Not in our book. It’s true that “any publicity” can get people talking about you, but if they aren’t saying what you want them to be saying, it’s not good! From media relations to application stories to special events, we get the conversation going on the topics you want.

Who We Are

There's a face to every team. With ours, you get sixteen. Meet the talent that will help you take your marketing to the next level.

Founded in 1955, BrandDirections is located in the heart of the heartland, but that doesn’t mean our marketing expertise lacks East Coast sophistication or West Coast cool.

We still have all that, plus an extremely strong work ethic and a commitment to excellence. We’ve gathered the best and brightest in strategic branding, communications, public relations, Internet marketing and consumer packaging and assembled them under one roof. This gives us the depth and ability to readily connect imagination, knowledge and people to achieve exceptional results.

We’re as connected to our community as we are to our clients, so it’s no surprise to find our employees volunteering their time, talents and resources around town, or the agency backing a local non-profit group.

Bragging doesn’t come easily to those steeped in Midwestern sensibilities… but we’re really good at big picture thinking, project execution and everything in-between.
