Is your brand working for you—or against you?
The best marketing on the planet can’t save a hastily built brand or a poorly positioned business.
Weak brands are easy to diagnose. Common symptoms include:
Throwing money at the problem
"We’ve spent so much time, energy, and money on marketing and we’re still not getting traction, visibility, or results.”
"There are so many others who do what we do—I feel like I’m constantly defining my company on someone else’s terms. How can we stand out?”
Failing to attract the right customers
"Our sales funnel and email list is full of people who aren’t a fit for what we do. It makes everything we do so much harder.”
"How we’re perceived is different from how we actually operate as a team. It’s confusing for our customers and for our new recruits.”
Price wars and cost justification
"I’m tired of lowering our prices to get the sale or constantly trying to convince people we’re worth it. It’s embarrassing.”
Frustration & defeat
"I just feel...stuck. We do something really cool and helpful, but no one knows we’re here. They are missing out—and so are we.”
A strong brand (almost) markets itself.
At Brickhouse, we help you identify and amplify what it looks, sounds, and feels like to work with you. When your brand can stand on its own, you won’t have to work so hard to be seen, heard, and found.
Strategy & Positioning
CLAIM YOUR POSITION
Even saturated markets have opportunities. With our strategic brand positioning, we’ll help you find them—and fill them.
Visual + Creative
ESTABLISH YOUR IDENTITY
We’ll go (way) beyond your logo and color palette to help establish a unique design aesthetic that works with your strategy and messaging—not against it.
GET EVERYONE ON BOARD
Culture + Engagement
There are few things more powerful than an entire team pulling in the same direction. We align cultures and brands to ensure a consistent experience for team members and customers.

KESHA LIEN, FOUNDER
“As a small business owner, it was important to my partner and I to work with a consultant that understood the challenges of positioning our company for major growth. I appreciated that she knew exactly how to develop a brand strategy that helped us tell our story in a way that would resonate with our ideal clients.”
