We are an independent and integrated creative agency. For 20 years, our guide has been one North Star: the brand. We believe that all of the brands we work with have an opportunity to bring a singular voice and contribution to the world, and it is our purpose to develop, express, and protect that voice through every extension. Our specialties in powerful storytelling, strong visuals, and intelligent strategy have made an indelible mark on our partners and their industries. Our campaign, packaging, and brand identity work reaches audiences across the globe and we are driven by the challenge of bringing a unique, lasting, and compelling point of view to our brands and their users.
Strategy . . .
Our approach to strategy is guided by a cohesive understanding of the brand’s power to connect with an audience. We integrate research and insights with our perspective, refined over two decades of experience creating desire around brands. Whether we are building a brand from the ground up or focused on a single campaign, we are committed to planning that breeds authentic and meaningful creative and activates our audience.
Creative . . .
Lloyd&Co. connects the product, the brand voice and the audience through creative expressions across channels. Our solutions for broadcast, print, social, digital, and out of home channels drive awareness, engagement, and business growth for our brands, and deepen their connection with users. We create content that captures the brand essence and the consumer's imagination on every scale, from high concept films to short-form social bits. We specialize in content that is flexible, modular, and distinct.
Branding . . .
Our branding work has signaled new eras for companies across a diverse set of industries. We create logo designs, visual systems, style guides, and typography standards as well as a full complement of strategic directions, developing the hierarchies and manifestos that define our brands.
Packaging and Industrial Design . . .
We design not only product packaging but also the tactile elements of the product, recognizing the incredible value of how a product looks and feels in the hands of its user. Lloyd&Co.'s industrial designs and material selections have defined products from bottles to containers and casings for the beauty, fragrance and consumer goods industries. We also design packaging systems for every purpose, from boxing, tissue, and trim systems to shipping and bagging.
Retail Design . . .
Our work extends to the retail world, creating experiences in the built environment that reinforce and enliven the brand and the product. Lloyd&Co.'s retail executions include window installations, wayfinding systems, posters, and indoor displays.
Partnerships . . .
In addition to our core competencies, Lloyd&Co. collaborates with brand internal teams and outside specialist agencies to ensure that adjacent creative initiatives retain the authenticity, power, and consistency of the brand voice. Our partnerships extend to specialists in digital and social channels, public relations, experiential marketing, media buying and planning, and customer relationship management.
