110 million US residents rent their homes.

Dwellsy is out to the upgrade their experience. BKW is a key partner in developing and growing the brand.

Insight-Driven Brand Development

BKW convened a series of brand-development sessions with the leadership team of Dwellsy, a company that provides a platform designed to help renters. The sessions included renters from the BKW team, and together we looked at mass-market brands with strong brand voices, uncovering insights from renters, and helped draw out the founding team’s personal values. This work formed the basis for a strong brand platform.

Empathetic, inclusive, with a touch of funny.​

Empathy is key to the Dwellsy brand. With 110 million people renting their homes in the U.S., renters outnumber homeowners. Our development sessions connected the statistics about modern housing trends with the real-life needs of renters, helping us discover that the need for empathy and respect is common for this substantial demographic. And of course, humor is a powerful way to connect with each other, and our audience.
