MBR Publications tells the right story to the right audience at the right time. Then we keep on telling it. Leveraging our 360° Lifestyle

Approach to brand building and Public Relations, we explore each appropriate story angle and media outlet (international, national

and local), based on brand news and differentiators, seasonal opportunities and cultural moments. The result: a broad base of media

coverage that crosses multiple categories and touches consumers in a meaningful and motivating manner.


Social PR at MBR Publications is goal driven and designed to support more traditional efforts through comprehensive media strategies

that combine social, digital and influencer networks. Our social media campaigns help develop audiences and promote loyalty. We offer

a full complement of services, including:

This is the age of transparency. The availability of information that consumers have access to is unprecedented. In a world of information

overload we believe that a direct brand voice and openness cut through the clutter and provide a refreshingly informative approach to

communications. We make sure substance is what defines style.


We believe in taking a leadership position that will differentiate our clients and drive features, benefits and experiences to highlight

something unique, extraordinary and ultimately newsworthy.


The state of communications today requires a dual approach in order to drive both brand awareness and consumer desire. We tell

stories to promote visibility and recognition by consumers and the media. And, we amplify this through stories and tactics that help

motivate purchase, interaction and likeability.

What keeps MBR Publications Ltd on the leading edge of the culturally current, relevant and ripe with opportunity? One key reason: the

lasting relationships we’ve cultivated with tastemakers the world over. We make these influencers work for you whether interacting

organizations both within and outside our agency portfolio.

We leverage the brand equity of those properties to position (or reposition) your brand, expose you to new audiences outside your

category, and take advantage of new media opportunities. The results: reinforcing your brand relevance, capturing new markets, and

providing consumer call-to-action.


MBR Publications Ltd offers short-term and long-term brand consulting, as well as strategic plan development. Our efforts will

strategically elevate your brand. Let us guide and/or implement your plan, with brand consulting recommendations that may include

PR, advertising, SEO and SEM, strategic partnerships, event marketing, brand alliances, digital and social media marketing, brand

extensions, spokespeople and brand ambassadors.

Imagery is a critical part of brand image. Video is increasingly

favored as medium for information consumption and

entertainment – and by Google. A well-rounded brand image and

marketing strategy includes both.

At MBR, we have the visual aspect of your brand covered. Our

clients use MBR-produced animated vignettes as part of their

websites, search campaigns, trade show displays and sales

presentations every day. From our in-house photo studio and

video production equipment to our expertise in coordinating

large-scale shoots by specialized third-party vendors, we can take

your company beyond words.


Attention spans are shortening by the day. Short-form video

(a combination of animation, stills, video snippets and text) is

increasingly favored as a way to get information out to customer

and prospects – and an easy way to leverage the power of digital

media. We offer a full suite of video production services, from

“kinetic text” vignettes, AVPs to traditional commercials.


Our graphic design expertise is a blend of brand identity,

strategy, creativity, user experience, functionality, graphics and

typography. We enable you to present a polished, consistent,

professional brand image every step of the way.


The slickest print piece, nicest trade show backdrop, most clever

print ad or catchiest Web banner will ultimately fall short of the

intended goal if it fails to integrate with the rest of your marketing

efforts. That’s why we begin every graphic design effort with the

View from 30,000 Feet, analysing from ground zero!

“The enigma of

marketing is that it is

one of man’s oldest

activities and yet it is

regarded as the most

recent of business


Michael Baker


We ensure that business goals drive creative – not vice versa.

Armed with a strategic framework, we put our award-winning

creative team to work for you – building brand awareness and

driving leads by delivering valuable content and outstanding

design. Whether it’s print or digital, graphic design fully integrates

with the rest of your marketing mix.


Over the years, we have designed and produced nearly every

imaginable form of collateral – award-winning websites, attentiongrabbing

event or trade show displays, product packaging,

print advertising campaigns, promotional videos, software user

interfaces, brochures, datasheets, signage, multimedia white

papers and more. And as catalysts for the process, we see every

project through from beginning to end, from brainstorming, to

concept, content, design, production and distribution.

We needed a partner that could help guide our branding

process. MBR’s strategic, data-driven, interactive approach

was backed up with stellar customer service and outstanding

creative content and design. An urgent business opportunity

cropped up in Geneva and MBR produced, designed and

delivered a 16-page corporate brochure, a one-minute

corporate video of exceptional standards, and also rebranded

our company logo in the span of only one week! The project

finished ahead of schedule and on budget, and I could not ask

for anymore!
