Our purpose or goal at BrandStorm is to inspire and educate business owners and leaders to build brands that lead with purpose so we can build a community of businesses that put purpose before profit.
Rob is the Founder and Owner of BrandStorm.
and began his career over 20 years ago and his experience has evolved from professional graphic design into strategy and branding.
In the early stages of this journey Rob was lucky enough to work alongside some varied and well known brands such as Marks & Spencer, Maersk Shipping and GSK which gave him great insights into how brands operate and communicate. These insights are what Rob has built BrandStorm on and perhaps the biggest insight was that all these brands had 1 thing in common. Purpose - They all had a purpose they stood for and believed in and that is what guided every decision or activity.
Rob is passionate about educating business owners on this big brand thinking, to think of their business as a brand, one with a higher purpose and to realise the power of influence that comes with it.

More than just a one man brand
At BrandStorm we can't build winning brands for our clients without a bit of help.
Rob has handpicked local creative professionals to collaborate with that share our values and our ethos:
To discover the unique essence that inspires and differentiate businesses so that they become purpose driven leading brands.
This hybrid approach is what we believe sets us apart as it means we can offer high level expertise as and when you need it and without the overheads to ensure that we don't just supply a service but genuinely help and support clients and become a valuable extension of their team.
With these collaborators we are able to offer a complete range of services to help build your brand and grow your business. These include inbound marketing, brand stories, video production, content creation, web development & SEO and even printing.
Using Ecologi to offset some of our carbon emissions.
As much as we love storms, for us it is more about how they look and what they represent. However we know that unsettled weather patterns and naturally occurred disasters are becoming all too frequent and common around the world and this is only going to get worse unless we all start taking it seriously.
From our everyday activities to specific job related tasks, we are continually working on reducing our consumption where possible.
We use the carbon off-setting tool Ecologi to off-set some of the additional carbon that onboarding new clients and undertaking certain activities takes by responsibly planting trees through Ecologi.
Community is another one of our core values at BrandStorm. The Hampshire town of Bordon where we are located is undergoing huge transformation and regeneration by the Whitehill and Bordon community trust who are transforming Bordon into 1 of only 10 NHS England Healthy New Towns with a focus on green living and promoting less car travel and more active travel around the town.
We are working hard to support this growing and thriving business community. Many of our core suppliers and strategic partners live and work in or around Bordon or Whitehill and share our core values. We are always looking for the very best talents to work with right here in the community.
We also get involved in local community events from litter picking to supporting local business groups and events and even run monthly Business Netwalking events to promote mental wellness within the local business community

"...the quality of brand identity work at BrandStorm stood out..."
"We needed to update the JUMPSEC brand image to reflect our company vision and reposition the company as a disruptor in the cyber security industry.
We scoped a few agencies and the quality of brand identity work at BrandStorm stood out. We were specifically looking for a local agency with whom we can build a relationship so they gain an understanding of our business. I felt BrandStorm delivered on this and translated our vision perfectly.
