New Business Manager

Company overview

At Coley Porter Bell, we create successful brands that Seduce the Subconscious and Convince the Conscious.

We do this by leveraging learnings from neuroscience to ensure we create brands that appeal to the primary decision making part of our brain – the intuitive rapid response part, as well as to the part that justifies those decisions – the logical, conscious thinking part.

One of the ways we do this is through the proprietary method of ‘Visual Planning’ enabling us to create beautifully persuasive brand strategies and identities that drive choice, create loyalty and ultimately grow our clients’ brands and their bottom line.
