It’s not what you do, or how you do it... it’s why you do it.

At Tōdem, we believe that for your brand to rise above the rest, you must first look inward. Our inside-out transformative approach to branding puts your purpose, values and company culture above all else and in doing so, the rest comes easy. We live in a society starved for belonging. As a company leader you have the opportunity to fill that void while also setting yourself up for long-term success and happiness. Science, research, and proven results have our back on this one. If longevity, brand loyalty, purposeful work and company growth sound good to you, Tōdem is here to get you off to the best start (or restart) possible. We’ll also make you look great along the way.

What We Offer

Articulate

At Tōdem, we develop a purpose-driven verbal brand before moving on to anything visual. We believe this is the single most valuable marketing effort you will undertake. It provides the unshakable base upon which your company, culture and brand can be built. It gives you an edge that clients, customers, peers, or consumers just can’t quite put their finger on. After all, you can’t build a castle on sand. A strong, articulate foundation is essential.

Cultivate

Your company must be healthy on the inside to make honest connections with folks on the outside. By building a strong internal culture, guided by your purpose, mission, vision and values, your marketing will become easier and even enjoyable. You will always know what to say, when to say it and who to say it to. You will cultivate a living and breathing entity from which employees and consumers alike draw meaning, satisfaction and joy.

Illuminate

Now it’s time to create the vehicle from which to share your brand with the rest of the world. Our design sensibilities are built on simplicity and meaning, leading to logos that stand the test of time. We spend our time (and your money) on practical solutions filled with clarity, distinction and purpose. Elaborate design and extensive creative can come later, but for now, you need your visual foundation, comprised of elements such as your logo, colors, fonts and visual guidelines, to illuminate who you are, what you do, and why you exist.

Activate

Every company has unique marketing needs. We don’t pretend to be experts in every category under the “marketing” umbrella, but there are a few fundamental needs that no business should take lightly, and this is where we shine - your first impression. Well-designed external communication outlets such as your stationery, website, collateral, promotional items and gifts, signage, social media and email communications are essential for immediate brand activation and a strong first impression from day one.

Elevate

Once we’ve developed your brand verbally, visually and culturally, we will know you inside and out, making us the most appropriate advisory resource for you in the future. Your most significant challenges moving forward are maintaining brand consistency, staying aligned with your values, and nurturing your company culture. With us at your side, this won’t be a problem. As an invested partner, we are here to provide clarity and context to ensure you make sound and strategic branding and marketing decisions well beyond your time with us.

Are We Right For You?

Fresh Perspective

Are you ready for a fresh perspective? Times have changed. The way people view work has changed. The way people view brands has changed. Are you open to a fresh way of thinking about your company, employees, culture and purpose?

Authenticity

We wholeheartedly believe in the power of authenticity. It’s what people want and what they need. Are you willing to tear down the proverbial wall that many companies hide behind and share with the world who you are?

Depth

We strip you down to your core and rebuild you from the inside-out. Are you willing to go beyond functional purpose, a pretty logo and a catchy message in order to achieve the depth that will carry you into the future?

Appreciation

Happy employees are essential. They are the human hand behind what you do. Your clients and customers interact with your brand through your people. Are you open to making their happiness a priority in order to breathe more life into your company?

Studies show that over 80 percent of Americans do not have their dream job. If more knew how to build organizations that inspire, we could live in a world in which that statistic was the reverse - a world in which over 80 percent of people loved their jobs. People who love going to work are more productive and more creative. They go home happier and have happier families. They treat their colleagues and clients and customers better. Inspired employees make for stronger companies and stronger economies.

Behind Tōdem

Rhem Galloway, a Greenville native, is a designer by trade but her combined 15 plus years of experience as a full time, contract, and freelance designer have allowed her to assume the role of account manager, art director, copywriter, production manager and even event planner. After years of focusing on the visual aspect of branding, Rhem recognized her greatest passion was not with the “designing” part of branding, but with the people. She loves to see others reach new heights, and appreciates the new relationships even more. Tōdem seemed to be the natural next step by introducing a new focus on people and culture in additon to beautiful design.

Our Brands

Watching our clients bring their vision, lifelong dreams or big ideas to life is why we do what we do. It’s one of the most rewarding things out there. When they bring us on board, it’s a privilege. Our job is to ensure they get off to the best start or restart possible by sharing with them our knowledge and talents. Here are a few of our clients who've set themselves apart by adhering to our advice… put your purpose, mission, and values at the heart of your brand.

Davis Orthodontics

Davis Orthodontics needed a fresh look that captured the personality and energy of Dr. Buddy and his staff. We needed it to appeal to both kids and their parents. Our mission was to develop a brand that was both fun and energic, yet somewhat conservative and professional. We landed on a clean, modern version of Dr. Buddy’s iconic bowtie and brought in loads of fun with three colorful patterns.
