Consumers and communities are giving brands permission to lead in thinking about the new normal of a world with coronavirus. The burden of re-imagining a future, and offering solutions for a problem about which so much is still unknown, can be scary and overwhelming to navigate, especially for consumers that are already navigating so many unprecedented challenges. A new world that entails, among other things, working from home, staying healthy, parenting and schooling, new budgets, limited income sources, previous support lines cut and a new perspective about what is actually important in life.

What Does Your Brand Stand For?

Posted by Team KSV on February 6, 2020 at 12:01 PM

Communicating your company’s commitment to a polarizing topic can bring on paralyzing fear. The idea of taking a firm stance on a cause your brand believes in, especially when your competitors are not vocalizing their own beliefs or making their own commitmentswhether it is climate change; gender equality; diversity and inclusion; fair labor practices; sexual assault; or LGTBQ issuescan feel risky. This is especially true in 2020, with the way that information is consumed and spread at such a rapid pace with one small, vocal commitment having the potential to go viral.

September Round Up: Climate Week Edition

Posted by Shaina Kaye on September 26, 2019 at 10:00 AM

September always seems like a magical month. There’s the back-to-school, anything-is-possible feeling of unbridled optimism that never fades, even though we have left school behind and entered into the reality of adulthood, routines, and careers. There are chilly mornings that give way to perfectly sunny and warm afternoons, leaving us uncertain about what to wear for the day, but always grateful for the sunshine as the days shorten little by little. There are the leaves that, at least here in the Northeast, transition to their colorful fall palette, a reminder that Mother Nature knows exactly what she’s doing in spite of the many climate change-related factors working so hard against her.
