M. Graham & Co.

How modernizing their brand articulation and marketing approach helped this manufacturer increase sales and market share.

M. Graham & Co. is a local, family-owned business successfully making artist’s color for more than two decades. Their artisan approach has helped build a solid reputation and national distribution, but as vibrant as their colors were — their approach to marketing was falling flat. M. Graham & Co. turned to East Bank Communications for help.

Refocus their brand articulation, modernize their approach to marketing and accelerate their sales growth.

Artists who work in oil color, watercolor, acrylics and/or gauche, as well as fine art supply retailers.
