Toronto, Ontario – Effective branding can be the difference between success and failure for a business. It’s not just how you distinguish yourself from your competition; it’s the foundation upon which the relationship with your customers is built. What messages are you sending to your potential customers and how are those messages being received?

The job of creative director has always been to tell a good story, but with the rise of digital technology, consumers have taken an active role in brand dialogue. cleansheet communications is a full-service advertising agency and integrated communications company dedicated to helping clients accelerate their growth through creatively sustainable branding - ideas that inspire a company’s employees and customers in equal measure.

“People say they hate advertising, but when brands are engaging, people love to be part of the conversation,” says Neil McOstrich, cleansheet’s co-founder and Chief Storytelling Officer. “So the new role of the creative director is to deliver an engaging platform storyline. When consumers become part of the story, they begin to innovate on behalf of the story – they give you the ideas – and that’s how you get exponential growth.”

cleansheet shuns the consultancy model in favor of a more collaborative approach.

“Logic leads to reason but emotion leads to action,” says Catherine Frank, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of cleansheet. “To access that emotional aspect we mine for human truth, a core insight that can inspire both employees and customers alike. We find the things that are true and link the brand’s truth with a human truth. When you do that, you get creativity happening everywhere and it’s more sustainable."
