Shifting the conversation on branding.

His list of branded clients includes PODS (Portable On Demand Storage), Sea of Diamonds, Team Logic IT and Double Cross Vodka. Phil has worked with firms from $2 million a year in sales to $700 million. While the size of the companies may vary, the branding issues are frequently similar in nature… the need for better clarity, direction and vision. Phil’s naming firm, Tungsten Branding, Inc., is a reflection of this conviction. His goal of creating brilliance and clarity is demonstrated in both his work and his commitment to help his clients achieve brand excellence.

Davis has penned over 50 articles on naming and branding as well as speaking on the subject to numerous business and industry trade groups nationwide. He has written or been quoted in AdAge, The Washington Post, Salon, Bloomberg's Business Week, TV Guide, Entrepreneur, Inc, AOL Small Business, D&B's, as well as a variety of national industry trade publications. He also hosts a national podcast, Brilliant Branding, which airs live on the VoiceAmerica Business channel Thursday 12pm eastern/9am pacific.

When not naming and branding, Davis resides with his wife, four kids and three dogs in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. To book Phil for your next conference or meeting, simply contact us for availability.
