Revitalizing a global financial leader.


As a leader in critical areas like valuation services, compliance, and regulatory consultation, Duff & Phelps was concerned that their brand was getting stale, and was not distinguishable from other financial brands. They challenged us to create a more modern look and feel, without losing the equity they established over their 85-year history.

A new brand embraced across a global footprint.

Our new brand concept, “The Power of the Ampersand,” illustrates the diversity of Duff & Phelps’ services, expertise, and industries they serve. Utilizing the ampersand, we broke away from mundane “business” imagery and incorporated a bolder, more modern, global design that could extend across print, web, social, and data visualization.

An Acclaimed, Award-Winning Brand.

The brand relaunch has been embraced around the globe by Duff & Phelps’ employees, clients, and followers. As a bonus, our relationship with Duff & Phelps earned us recognition by the Gramercy Institute as one of the “20 Most Valuable Partners in Financia

The team at Garfield Group has been a trusted partner to Duff & Phelps for several years. In addition to several outstanding design projects, most recently Garfield Group helped to develop an advertising concept that accurately reflected and creatively expressed my firm’s brand. Garfield Group’s strategic approach led me to award them an extensive internal and external campaign. I am very excited to work with them more in the future.”
