Good Bishop Communications is a community of award-winning, charismatic creative minds who serve to passionately shepherd brand paths to success. Regardless of industry or audience, we preach that in order to ensure impact and successful ROI (Return on Investment AND Involvement), a brand must be unique and bold (yet simple) enough to get noticed, nimble (and simple) enough to allow for evolution, and relevant (yet simple) enough to resonate with its audience. A brand must also convey truth and consistency to encourage both internal and external loyalty. It’s a simple and authentic formula, and one which should also transcend brand to guide all aspects of an organization – from concise internal operations to managing its communications efforts and consumer / community relationships.
Brands are earned in the hearts and minds of your audience through perception, promise and performance. Are you up for the task? We are.
