TripSource Website Development

When BCD Travel needed a new website for their TripSource brand, they turned to us to build it. The site is a complete top-to-bottom redesign from their previous look, with scroll-activated animations to help explain key features of the TripSource platform. The site was a complex development undertaking but we were up to the task and delivered it on a tight schedule to be showcased at an upcoming conference.

Marketing On A Strict Budget

Sticking to a razor-thin budget doesn’t mean sending our imaginations home early. At Ethic, we never throw our hands up and turn to stock templates. We’re used to working with budgets of all sizes, and no matter what, our philosophy is the same: do absolutely as much as we can while staying just within the limits. Sure, boundless work scopes can be fun, but all projects begin the same way: with careful forethought about how to realistically—yet creatively—develop memorable material that makes the most of whatever we’ve got. Big or small, Ethic pushes the boundaries to make every project feel completely custom, high-end, and on-brand while maximizing every penny.

Brand Strategy

Your brand is more than your logo, name and slogan—it’s the entire experience that your audience has with your organization, product, or service. And it’s got a lot of moving parts. To keep all the elements of your brand working in tandem toward your institution’s goals, you need a long-term brand strategy to inform every decision along the way. It defines what you stand for, what promises you make, and what personality you convey. In practice, it forms a handy-dandy roadmap to keep your brand on track.

Brand Awareness

In 2006, Alcoa Employees and Community Credit Union, a longstanding Midwestern financial institution, needed to separate from the world’s third-largest aluminum producer. (Tale as old as time, right?) After settling on a new name and logo, the newly-christened Ascentra brought in the Ethic team to take over the development of their young brand, and we’ve been nurturing and helping it grow ever since.

Rusk Packaging

Kalahari Rusk Packaging

Before introducing the US market to Red Tea, Kalahari started with a South African breakfast staple called a Rusk. Used by solders to cross the hot Kalahari desert, the rusk was packed with energy and could last a long time before spoiling. While looking similar to a biscotti, the lack of sweetness unfortunately didn’t appeal to the US market. And while the rusk itself lacked spark the Kalahari packaging was good enough to land several major grocers and enough brand recognition for an easy transition to later products.
