REVIEWS.CONSULTING

We retained Carrie Lannon to help refresh the Page One brand as we celebrated our 10th year in business. Her strategic focus allowed us to develop a brand story and website that aligned with our current capabilities and future aspirations. Working with Carrie is so enjoyable. She is smart, talented and a remarkable storyteller, and puts her knowledge to use in a process that is exciting and fun.It’s hard to be objective about your own business, but Carrie’s strategic guidance helped me make the best brand decisions for our agency.  I could not be happier with our refreshed brand and recommend Carrie very highly.

“Thank you so much for guiding us through our recent rebranding effort and delivering a fantastic website, logo, and brand!  I was thoroughly impressed with your professionalism, energy, and knowledge, but most of all, your ability to understand the details of our business and translate what we do into a language that our target market understands.  We struggled for years to translate our ‘geek speak’, but you nailed it on the first try!  On a scale of 1-10, you definitely deserve an 11!  We’re very excited to launch our new brand and message to our existing clients and new business opportunities.”

“It’s been a delight to work with Carrie Lannon to revamp the branding and communications for Sahara Rose skincare. She and her team distinguished our brand in the market with the new tagline “skincare for the senses,” a unique brand story, a fresh new website, a modern visual presence and attractive product catalogue. We have benefited from her unique ability to think strategically and creatively at the same time, and her commitment, passion and attention to detail.

“Working with Carrie Lannon on a communications plan around Chicago Artist Coalition’s move to a new neighborhood was exciting, invigorating, and effective.  She took the time to learn about CAC, its history, and programs and developed with staff tight, accurate, and accessible language that informed (and still informs) marketing materials and digital communications.   Carrie audited our social media and digital marketing efforts and recommended specific steps our staff could take to improve our communications and reach.   She secured articles, press mentions, and a television segment that led up to and culminated in an enormously successful event celebrating CAC’s move.  Carrie’s passion for her work, clients, and the arts is contagious.”

“Our firm’s re-branding initiative would not have been possible without Carrie Lannon’s expertise, advice and strategic input.  She exudes enthusiasm and professionalism on behalf of her clients. When we embarked on a company rebrand, she collaboratively updated our mission and vision, developed our brand focus and provided the copy for our website. She continues to be relentless in making sure that all our marketing, advertising, social media efforts and communication are on-brand and aligned.”
