Razor Branding Logo - brandRUSSO

Our philosophy is directly related to our process, which we call Razor Branding™.

Razor Branding develops brands from the inside out, establishing a series of branded touchpoints that form emotional connections with the consumer. Developing these connections relies heavily on understanding the psychographics of consumer behavior, and not just demographic profiles that rarely tell the whole story.

Understanding perceptions, attitudes, beliefs, and the lifestyles of our clients’ consumers better position us to develop messaging that motivates individuals and best meets their needs – regardless of industry, size, location, or category.

Razor Branding™ works towards four primary goals at all times: Focus, Promise, Connection, and Harmony.



helps define who you are and who your audience is – through the use of consumer insight, demographics, psychographics, and personality profiles.



defines that one differentiating and powerfully compelling quality that makes your brand razor sharp – in effect, the promise behind the brand.



establishes your “voice” and a messaging system that is based on your defined brand promise -making you the preferred choice over the competition.



works to identify and develop a series of branded touchpoints that establish trust – connecting with your audience where they live, work, and play.


Whether the Razor Branding™ process is carried from start to finish, or simply used in principle as a foundation for a project, this approach to thinking about the consumer and their brand choices, helps our team craft strategies and messages that motivate consumer behavior.

With the public more savvy and better armed with information today, we understand that it takes more than just a pretty picture and shelves full of awards to win the day. For us, creative without strategy is just art.

At RUSSO, the desired outcome for all marketing and advertising initiatives is to produce advocacy for your brand – and the only way an agency can do that is to lead creative with insights and strategy in a way that produces substantially different results.

By changing the conversation, we are able to clearly define the promise behind the brand, within any given category. In doing so, consumers can easily understand how a particular product or service can enhance their lives.


No matter how creative the advertising, a poorly positioned product, service, or brand will fail sooner or later. For this reason, we work with the client in developing what is most worthwhile to communicate to the consumer – giving them a reason to join their tribe.
