WHAT WE DO

WE DON’T MAKE HONEY.

We do make brands live. And thrive. Our brand strategists work hard to understand your vision and your customers’ needs.

INSIGHTS & NEWS

Willoughby turns 40

Cheers to 40 Years

“Boogie Oogie Oogie” was a Top Ten hit, The Star Wars Holiday Special was on television and everyone flocked to see Jaws 2 wearing the latest in disco fashion. Then they went home to their Harvest Gold kitchens and shag carpet to drink strawberry daiquiris. Ok, so maybe 1978 was a bit of a creative train wreck.
Vet + Pet

Branding Tails

Pets make our lives better, so anytime we find a chance to help make their lives better we're all in. Plus, we love the kind of research that sits on our lap. Here are a few examples from our latest fuzzy clientele.

Making History.

This year Willoughby is looking back on 40 years in design and business, and I am looking forward to launching KC Making History, a new AIGA national initiative to preserve the rich history of design in design hubs throughout the United States.
