Patrik Lenhart |

"sooner knows what a brand needs to have to perform in marketing."

"When I describe sooner to people, it's always a challenge to precisely define what they do. They're a creative concept group, with tremendous strategic knowledge, and they function as art directors, brand designers, and experience designers. It's hard to label, which is a positive thing.

Their expertise spans all aspects of brand and communication, giving them a deep understanding of branding. They know what a brand needs to succeed in marketing because they have marketing experience. They've navigated all the challenges involved in brand building, which allows them to take a fully holistic approach. On top of that, they're genuinely nice people.”

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Brands aren't created in one go by an agency or a design team.

To us, a brand is more than just a name, logo, tagline, or website. In today's consumer landscape, a brand must be more than a superficial layer for it to drive success. Great brands are built upon a core idea that is consistently expressed through all the company's actions, led by the founders and leaders.

Our Mission: We aim to work with you as a partner, using a method specifically designed for early-stage environments. This approach is tailored to meet your needs on how to grow and maintain your brand during its early stages.

About us: Before founding Sooner, we spent over a decade working for brands, agencies, and venture companies. These include BCG Digital Ventures, Casper Sleep, Samsung, Nike, Google, Jung von Matt, Heimat Berlin, R/GA, TBWA, DDB, and many more. You can view our portfolio for more details.

FAQ

Got questions?
We've got answers.
01
Who, specifically, is sooner for?

Sooner is designed for anyone launching a new company, product, or service. This includes startup founders, entrepreneurs, venture builders, and solopreneurs. Regardless of the industry, every successful business needs a strong brand and system for growth.

02
For whom is it not?

If a brand is merely about colors and copywriting to you, it would be better to engage a classic design agency.

03
Why should you work with us instead of hiring an external agency?

Instead of relying on an external agency, the founders should develop the brand strategy's foundation. Without doing so, the founders may not fully embrace a foundation imposed by outsiders. We ensure that your brand is built on the simple idea at the heart of your business.

04
What happens after the program is finished?

Once you complete the "Get your Brand" program, your brand will be poised for growth and scalability within your company. We can offer further assistance in two ways: either by aiding you in hiring talented individuals, or by providing ongoing support through a Membership contract for as long as needed.
