While taking his B.Comm. at the University of Manitoba, Callum Beattie developed a keen interest in marketing and advertising. At the time, the term “brand” wasn’t widely used, although the concept was not unfamiliar. After a disastrous attempt at winning an advertising contest, he quickly developed a foundation of what good advertising should be based on. Since then, he and his team of outstanding creatives have developed intuitive and successful marketing strategies, brands and campaigns for some of the most exciting organizations in Manitoba.
A partner in Honest Agency, Callum has been creating successful branding and advertising campaigns for the past 14 years. He’s worked with leaders and underdogs, small fish and bloated whales, the simple and understated as well as the complex and downright frustrating. In short, he’s seen his fair share of branding puzzles and opportunities and has enjoyed every one of them (even if they've caused him to grey faster than he’d like). Throughout the years, he's had the opportunity to gain valuable insight into branding best practices. He’s passionate about his clients and always looks forward to telling their stories.
A good brand is like a good story. It has depth, it has passion and it leaves an indelible impact on people. Learn how to tell the story of your brand so that it is easily understood and not easily forgotten.
