THINK JUSTICE

A brand-centered approach to social justice.

Our unique application of branding philosophy to social justice stems from a practice we honed at our sister company, THINK Conservatory. There we became expert at developing branding and strategies that align with consumer aspiration.

This positions THINK Justice squarely in between people and brands. Our history in advocating to build products and services that makes people’s lives better while building profitable brands allows us to help organizations challenge themselves to be deliberate about creating policies that are people forward and considerate of social justice causes.

We pride ourselves to be a compassionate, yet business-minded partner for organizations seeking to make a commitment in social justice while protecting their brand’s identity and value.

Organizations who aim to be genuinely committed to social justice causes have few roadmaps to help them navigate these highly polarized issues. In our process of developing bespoke strategies to activate social justice consciousness, we convert reluctance to empowerment by balancing the focus between business goals and tolerance.

WE STRIVE FOR

Telling the Truth with Compassion
Being Comfortable with the Uncomfortable
Yielding for Access
Ensuring Shared Power
Acting with Empathy
Having No Boxes
