A COLLECTIVE OF MODERN THINKERS
Driving impact across the worlds of Fashion, Sports and Entertainment
We are ELP BRANDS, a collective of modern thinkers, creatives and business development experts that are not afraid to explore non-traditional ways to engage with the next generation of consumers.
As a holding company we own and develop both early stage and well-established brands which sit at the intersection of Fashion, Sports and Entertainment. This is done through licensed products, endorsement deals, content development, marketing programs and strategic partnerships.
We stay true to the ethos of each brand in our portfolio. Understanding its core values and unique attributes is the foundation of our strategy.
Ethos, Logos, Pathos is a phrase coined by Aristotle which refers to the three modes of persuasion. Ethos (ethical) Logos (logic) Pathos (emotional).
While creating high-quality products and best-in-class partnerships matter, it is equally important to create authentic stories. This is where “Ethos, Logos and Pathos” comes to life. This philosophy challenges us to understand the psychology of our consumers so we can best deliver our products, services and experiences.
In today’s ever-changing digital and retail landscape, it has become increasingly difficult for companies to remain anchored with their consumers. How should brands deal with the constant clutter and noise? The key to our strategy is the development of meaningful connections with our consumers. These connections serve a pivotal role in fostering trust and allowing us to deliver our products and services in a truly unique and personal way.
