US Leather Industry Associations merge. gt&i introduces L&HCA brand

/ December 2020

Following its work to bring leather to a new international audience of fashion designers and influencers the new Leather & Hide Council of America, formed by the merger of two of the US’s oldest trade associations, came to gt&i to deliver their positioning and rebrand.  Our Senior Strategist led the positioning piece exploring where leather sits in the supply chain, its interactions with the meat industry, the interests of the member organisations, its role in developing and maintaining international markets and – of course – in shaping sustainability stands for a multi billion pound global industry.   The final element of the mix was leather itself.  Not the traditional animal hide but rather a sustainable, natural material that is synonymous with quality and has real history.

On great strategy came a great new brand from our creative teams.  You can read the full case study here

Kilada Country Club

Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences

/ November 2020

gt&i was invited, after an initial presentation of strategy to the Athens based management team, to deliver the positioning, naming, branding, website, brochures and advertising for a new leisure and residential destination in Porto Heli, a region described as the Hamptons of Greece by Vanity Fair.

Led by Dophin Capital, operators of Niki Beach Resort  & Spar and Amanzoe, Kilada will feature stunning Country and Beach Clubs, a hotel overlooking the bay, private villas by leading European Architectural practices, in addition to a selection of formal and informal bars and restaurants.  Add in the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in the Eastern Mediterranean and it is a stand out destination.

The unique feel of a Country Club creates resonance with an international audience summering in Porto Heli and those accessing Kilada in just 30 minutes by helicopter from Athens.  That sense of belonging, that wealth of choice, and a feeling of club ownership gave rise to MyKilada. As we like to say Some call it paradise.  Now you can call it home.

Parya Website

/ June 2020

Winkworth has once again approached gt&i following our successful 2017 campaign which fired Winkworth up the London Real Estate Agency Rankings.

2020 sees a new brand strapline and campaign positioning Winkworth not just as agents, but as partners there to help through every step of the moving process and in any given situation.

Our insights team pinpointed the Winkworth difference, a network of people who, as local business owners, really care about every customer; a network that really does have local knowledge as well as national reach.

This insight led to the new strapline ‘for every step…’ which sits at the heart of the new campaign. It establishes that Winkworth really understands why people move home, so when it comes to one of life’s biggest decisions, or when life throws you a curveball, we are there to offer professional advice and a helping hand, all done with honesty and integrity.

The new through-the-line campaign breaking in February 2020 via OOH (taxi’s, busses and London Underground) online (programmatics), local and national press and targeted DM positions Winkworth as the go-to estate agent for the long term.
