HARRISON BRANDS. BRANDING FOR BUSINESSES WITH PURPOSE

Who are Harrison Brands?

 “I started Harrison Brands in 2021, after years of working in teams with unnecessary layers and lacking a strong purpose. Now, it’s time for both People and Planet to come before Profit”.

Andy Marshall

Previous (and existing) clients include:

Barclays Bank, MSC Cruises, Combat Stress, Marks & Spencer, Berkeley Group, Baird Capital, Redrow, Chapman BDSP, Sutton and East Surrey Water, Mount Anvil, AgeUK, Red Funnel, ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), UST Global.

 

I have over 25 years experience of working with the likes of Interbrand, Ziggurat Brands and others to create brand identities, train liveries, books, brochures, signage, hoardings, in fact, most forms of brand communication.

At the young age of 14, I decided that I couldn’t be responsible for the needless slaughter of animals for my own diet, so I became vegetarian. At 17, I stood for election as the Green Party candidate in the school mock elections.

And then I focused on profit first. Working up to a Creative Director position and staying there for many years. 

Along came the change. Starting Harrison Brands led me to establish my own purpose. Stunned by the damage we were doing to our planet and outraged that we still live in a world where there is discrimination and worse.

Harrison Brands exists today to tackle these issues by enabling brands to communicate their impact both on the planet and people with great effectiveness. 

 

In 1991, I cycled to Brighton wearing one of the most outlandish cycling kits ever produced. Many years later, keen to keep my carbon footprint to a minimum, you’ll still find my on a road bike, but more suitably attired for today.

“In my work with Harrison Brands, I bring my two passions together; I combine my 20+ years of marketing experience with my desire to create a more positive future for the planet and the next generation”.

Ever since I graduated with a degree in Business Management in 2000, I have leveraged my experience and expertise to help business owners market and build their businesses: I co-founded an award-winning magazine, have generated millions in revenue for my clients, worked client side and agency side. I’ve been both employer, and employee and worked as a freelance marketing consultant.  

Acutely aware that we have less than a decade to turn global warming around before we reach irreversible limits, I bring my skills in Marketing and my passion for the planet together to support eco-business leaders to succeed in their respective markets.  

Raised on organic farms in England and Australia, and having traveled extensively, I have always been closely connected to nature – its rhythms, cycles and fragility. As well as working as facilitating the Strategic Marketing Mastermind,  I am a founder member of several, award-winning, local environmental groups PACE (Practical Action for Climate and the Environment), Plastic Free Manningtree and the Manningtree Earth Festival. It was through my work with PACE that I became inspired to focus my professional life in the green business niche.  

When I’m not working, I can be found wild-swimming, practising yoga, creating pottery, planning my carbon-neutral self-build and enjoying time with my two rambunctious boys.
