one little start
the bread and butter began its journey in 2003 in London with just two people: a brand strategist and a designer. Since then, years have passed, during which big ideas have sprouted and dreams achieved. With this in mind we can proudly proclaim that the bread and butter has accomplished a tremendous number of branding projects.
With continued increase in annual sales, we are delighted that the bread and butter have become a global brand consulting agency that maintains its initiation of new sales activities with successful high quality project performance. In fact, over 65% of our clients have recommended us to others. This is truly something we can be proud of.
Plan A + Plan B
Plan A of the bread and butter has been and will always be to position strategic branding as our core business initiative.
More importantly, the bread and butter also adhere to its Plan B, which is our commitment to share and donate our unique brand consulting expertise and our profit to:
  • - local communities & NGOs
  • - small-sized companies with excellent performance but with no unique brand value
  • - social venture CEO with no branding knowledge and experience
  • - big corporations with minimal branding expertise
the bread and butter promises to focus on its core principles whilst sharing our knowledge with innovative companies.

1/30 every month, we save 1/30 of our net profit to the BNB Dream bank account

BBC (Bread & Book Club)
Once a month, the team members of the bread and butter select a book and take time out of their working day to share creative insights as a book club. We call this the BBC (Bread & Book Club) because we share our thoughts and literary analysis while drinking coffee and eating delicious pastries or bread. At the end of our BBC session, a small gift is awarded to a member who thinks outside of the box, sees the world from a wider perspective, and shares inspiring insights. These are values that we see as sacrosanct to the bread and butter vision.
Global Workshops
the bread and butter has participated in numerous global project meetings, workshops, seminars, trend research, and global safari analysis around the world, spanning from New York in the West to Tokyo in the East. Through such participation, we can continue progressing with something that we call ‘Creativity for Change’, which focuses on creating brands that are more impactful simultaneously and unique.
