deep group

http://www.deepgroup.com

Everyone is comfortable near the shore.

There, it's safe. There, it's familiar. The shallows allow you to keep sight of your toes and ensure that every small step lands exactly where you'd like. But near the shore, you're not alone. It's well-trodden. It's crowded. Footprints become indistinguishable and, at best, very temporary.

Here, there are no footsteps to follow, no landmarks to guide you. Here, is discovery, excitement. Here, as the tides and current change, so change our paths. Yet, this is not where we stay. This is where we play. Here, the goal is a destination of sure-footing, sunshine, and land that is not yet claimed. But to reach new shores, you have to tread the depths. Enjoy the adventure.

WHY DO WE HATE SHEEP, AGAIN? The people of Sullivan Higdon & Sink hate sheep because they remind us of marketing that follows instead of leads. Strategies that should be put out to pasture in today’s marketing multiverse. And docile ideas that inherently blend in. Today, an audience cannot only ignore what a brand has to say but opt out of interacting with it altogether. This is true no matter whom you market to. And so, many brands fade into a bleating flock of competitors, indistinguishable and mostly ignored. Sheep are bad for business. That’s why we hate ‘em. And that’s why SHS has been built from the ground up to think beyond the borders of tranditional marketing solutions for ideas that stand out from the fock.
