Boutique live events and experiential agency Bee, part of Omnicom’s Cosine Group, has kicked off 2018 with a complete rebrand – introducing a new name, logo and brand identity.
As of today, Bee will be known as Hyphen. The new name reflects its vibrant, creative proposition – to create connections for brands that cut-through the noise.
“Hyphen is all about creating moments that connect. Because when someone encounters your brand in person, they’re 90% more likely to remember it. At Hyphen, we turn these encounters into connections,” said Luci Beaufort-Dysart, head of live events & experiential at Hyphen.
Hyphen creates experiential campaigns and live events for brands including: Merlin, Bumble, Mars Wrigley, Glanbia, LG, Shell and Nestle.
Recent activations include painting the town yellow for dating app Bumble, educating consumers on mobile payments for Shell, and capturing students’ attention at Freshers’ week for brands including: McVities and Skittles. The team is currently busy planning an experiential Valentine’s Day installation for Bumble.
The Hyphen team is led by Luci Beaufort-Dysart, who joined Cosine Group in May 2017 from Madame Tussaud’s, where she was senior global brand manager. Before that, she was business development and brand director at experiential and events agency TRO.
In 2018, the newly rebranded Hyphen plans to develop both existing and new client relationships, and deliver some best-in-class experiences.
“We see a real opportunity in the market for growth. Our ambitions for 2019 and beyond include further developing the team, being listed in the Top 20 Brand Experience Agencies League Table, and winning awards for our clients,” said Beaufort-Dysart.
Hyphen is part of the Cosine Group – an integrated group of brand activation agencies that deliver connected consumer experiences from insight to implementation. These include: Cosine, field sales experts, who integrate intelligence with brilliant people to maximise a brands sales and profits; Axis, which uses data to deliver deep insights and analysis for smarter sales and stronger growth; and agile shopper and retail marketing agency TPN, which creates connected consumer communications and inspires people to buy in any channel.
“Whatever our clients want to achieve, we deliver a complete end-to-end service designed to build genuine connections between audiences and brands. From sponsorship activations and experiential roadshows to festival experiences, conferences and PR stunts – the opportunities are endless.
Cosine Group CEO Nick Jones added: “The Cosine Group offers a flexible, integrated service for our clients, with experienced specialists, working together in whatever configuration suits their needs. With Hyphen, we offer brands the opportunity to connect directly with their audiences through creative and engaging campaigns.”
