If you don’t drive change, change will drive you out.

SHIFT GEARS

Confused with parity of choice, consumers are becoming increasingly indifferent to endless repackaging, and the same-ness of brands. The lesson here is that mere tinkering at the edges no longer delivers results and clearly, brands cannot continue to play the same game and expect to win.

Businesses and brands need transformation to break free from this ‘similarity trap’. At Celsius100, we ‘untrap’ the mind, turn existing wisdom on its head, to help businesses create new brand stories that leads the conversation in the category.

Powering breakthrough ideas by untrapping the mind.

WHO ARE WE?

We started as a brand consultancy firm in 2005, based in Bangalore, India, with a singular purpose: to inspire change through transformation of businesses and brands. Today, we are a platform that brings together experienced strategists, planners, storytellers, creative and marketing minds to help your business with everything your brand needs: Across product launches, strategic planning, Go-to-Market strategies, and more. By opening minds to new ideas. New possibilities. New contexts. New products and services. New ways to connect. New ways to grow.

MEET THE TEAM

Often the mind gets trapped by the tyranny of tangibles.

CHANGE GAMEPLAN

Every business idea has to have a context. But businesses get trapped within that context, because it’s familiar and comfortable, unable to look beyond. But the context changes with time, out in the market, in the consumer’s mind and the brand is left behind.

Brands need to reframe the context of their existence. Find new ideas in the real world to articulate a new purpose, a world-view. And deliver higher value to differentiate and win. We call this Context Engineering.

Engineering context for success.

WHY

Our starting point is defining the context of a business:

Why we do what we do? What is it we believe in? We call it Purposing that provides an outside-in perspective, and customer context. To unearth an inspirational idea and engineer a business or brand around it.

HOW

Next is to embed the breakthrough idea to make it come alive. This is where we engage with the team to inculcate a culture and design processes to deliver the breakthrough idea through products or services. And then form strategic plans on how to create and offer higher perceived value that will be endearing to customers. 

WHAT

Finally, we plan on what to do to take the products or services to the market. This is where creating the right brand narrative comes into play, in terms of branding, brand communication and brand experiences. The focus is on meticulous planning and execution in order to create the Wow! Experience across diverse touch points.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

INSPIRE MINDS

People make or break businesses and brands. Inspired customers become brand advocates. Motivated team players turn into brand evangelists. We believe changing the game starts with transformation of the mind. To leap forward.

Ignite imagination and ideas.

MEETING CHALLENGES

No two brands are the same. Neither are their challenges.
Whatever they are, we can help you meet them.
Different business have different issues. Different brands need different solutions. That’s why we offer brand and marketing consultancy services to help companies broadly address four challenges:

“I’m launching a new product. How do I differentiate and get quick traction?”

“My brand is stuck and business growth is flat-lining. What do I do?”

“How do I use brand conversation in digital & social media to improve my brand share?”

“My people are trapped on old ways: I want new ideas and fresh thinking. But how?”

We can give you the answers to these questions. And make change happen.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do, and do what you love.

SPARK TRANSFORMATION

Brands are our passion, not a 9-5 job. Realistic and not theoretical. Keep things simple. Work fast. Be partners, not consultants. That’s who we are. And you can engage with us in any or all of the 3 ways below:
