We put brand at the heart of business

When you put brand at the heart of your organization, clarity pulses through everything you say, make, and do.

That's Brand Integrity.

It increases efficiency and drives high performance company-wide, exponentially multiplying value.

At Northbound we're a team of brand strategists and creatives connecting why you do what you do with how you show up in the world.

We help to power products, inspire employees, and build lasting customer relevance through brand.

A proudly independent brand consultancy

We believe the best outcomes come from a combination of a shared vision, divergent thinking, and empowered individuals.

Being woman-owned does more than just check a box at Northbound. It fosters new ways of working within teams and with clients, allowing us to deliver breakthrough ideas.

Let’s go further, we’re Northbound together

We were founded in 2012 in Seattle. We now have teams in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

We work with global clients ranging from Amazon and Microsoft to ZACH Theatre and Wizards of the Coast, and from Arkansas to Zurich.
