Evology is a creative agency driven by the worldview of our founders. We believe brands have the power to make lives better.
We evolve ideas.
We explore without limits, fueled by research and set on creating solutions that bring people together. We approach each project with a foundation of intelligence and insight, and a determination to challenge convention.
The brands we work with think about their impact on people and on the world. The common thread is progress.
In short, we move ideas forward to find what’s next—now and into the post-Covid world.

Progress starts here.
Discover new ways to tell your story and position your brand.
The heart of our strategic and creative work is the powerful strategy, writing, and design we provide, either as part of a larger engagement or as a standalone.
Most of the bold and insightful work our clients do is communicated through words and visuals. Whether it’s a long form proposal, short direct mail piece, or digital content, we excel at making ideas tangible.
Because of the nature of our clients and their highly nuanced work, we’re strong believers in the power of data visualization and infographics. The art of merging the right words with simple, yet compelling visuals is often the most effective way to convey a complex message.
Our focus on creative development is equally important for print and digital applications, internal and public facing.
One-on-one consultation is available for leaders, managers, and visionaries who want to take advantage of experienced and strategic outside thinking. This takes the form of confidential consulting and it often leads to written assets, including plans, memos, reports, and presentations.
We conduct extensive research and lead highly customized discovery sessions with stakeholders—virtually, by phone, or in-person—to find alignment and clarity across multiple voices and to help illuminate your vision, define challenges, and generate ideas and opportunities.
Our discovery and insights process answers questions, identifies roadblocks you’ve felt but not fully seen, and unearths new objectives and a plan to achieve them. It can also explore targeted topics using input from compelling, unexpected messengers.
We combine information gleaned from interviews with rigorous research into your organization, the field, and market landscape. The result: sharp insights.
What an engagement might include :
- Confidential interviews
- Brand audit
- Landscape research and analysis
- Group sessions
- New opportunity exploration
- Messaging consultation

Are you ready for a rebrand? You might feel your brand could be stronger, more relevant, or have greater reach. You may not even know what your brand really is. That’s how we identify highly targeted goals tailored to your brand and then craft the look, messaging, and strategy that will move you forward.
- How is your brand perceived from the inside and the outside?
- Will your decision makers and key stakeholders be on board for a rebrand?
- Have you notably shifted your business or your market?
- Is it time to pivot your strategic messaging?
- Could new products or services steer your brand direction?
- Where do you fit in the current market?
- Need a new map to find your way in a changing landscape?
Our team has extensive experience leading targeted rebrands. So we know where tensions can arise along the way and how to create the conditions that build to successful outcomes. It’s valuable to start by exploring your exact needs and then chart the course that will get you there.
We’ll help you determine the direction, goals, objectives, affordability, and scope that will best serve your needs, including whether you need to rebrand at all.
Brand can mean many different things. To visionaries, it may be what drives new ideas. To customers, it may be your logo. To employees, it may be workplace dynamics.
In fact, your brand is all these things. But a brand’s essence needs to be defined in a way everyone can understand. Locating brand core is the start of our strategic process—followed by a powerful creative exploration and alignment.
Our branding approach is a strategic investigation designed to bring out the most salient and actionable brand promise of your company, product, or service. That’s how we identify highly targeted goals tailored to your brand and then develop the visual vocabulary, messaging, and strategy that will move you forward.
We build and refresh brands to lead you toward new growth and clear impact.
