Why Tension Works

The most memorable stories have tension. Without tension, it’s nearly impossible to get attention.

Imagine David without Goliath, Batman without Joker, or Jim without Dwight.

These stories become forgettable without someone or something to fight against.

Brands are no different. The most successful ones all have clear enemies.

When you have a clear enemy, people don’t just buy what you sell – they begin to root for you.

We believe the key to creating culture-shifting work is to first define your enemy – and then begin to fight all the ways that enemy manifests in day-to-day life.

OREO has Adulthood. CarMax has Soullessness. Buffalo Wild Wings has Domestication.

Each of those enemies is more than just one big problem. They represent dozens of tensions – issues, setbacks, frustrations – people face every day. In other words, they are perfect opportunities to prove what your brand stands for by taking action.
