Video and TV Production

There is no better way to tell a compelling story than with well shot video. It leaves an indelible mark. STIR utilizes video to shape brand perception. We manage all aspects of the script, shoot and edit. We can accommodate nearly any budget and still overachieve.

UPAF had a wonderful experience working with STIR. The firm completely transformed our brand, which had not been updated since the organization’s inception in 1967. STIR’s creative positioned UPAF as vibrant, current and distinct. I highly recommend the firm!

Package Design

As unique and special as the product itself, a brand’s package is often its most important marketing asset. STIR crafts packaging that stands apart at point of sale. Bold, powerful, colorful graphics that project the key brand attribute. They stop shoppers in their tracks and say “pick me!”

Content Production

Production value makes all the difference. The reality of timelines and budgets require us to be agile – concepting, and producing content efficiently, at a high level. Based on what we learn about you through discovery, and considering your various budgets, resources, and goals, we create tailored and strategic production plans.

Logo and Brand Identity

We are tremendously proud of the companies and products that we’ve named, the logos, standards, themelines that we’ve developed. They’ve passed the test of time and been the foundation on which many fine brands have been built. We create symbols that represent who you are or who you want to be. STIR’s brand and corporate identities are a good investment. Over time they are appreciated and they accrue equity.
