Creativity is the Currency of the Future
The world has fundamentally changed and no industry is untouched. Imagination is in short supply; businesses and governments struggle to make ideas work.
For ten years, NOT JUST A LABEL (NJAL) has been the outsourced creative director for cities, regions, and leading luxury brands.
Besides facilitating the success of over 50,000 creatives globally, NJAL has designed unique stores, reinvigorated manufacturers, brought life back to failing districts, helped companies design new products. We know how to build the future, profitably.
As a retailing crisis looms, real estate stutters, media is mistrusted and consumer habits shift – old assumptions no longer apply and new principles will shape growth. NJAL has robustly proved it can build compelling solutions to today’s challenges – seizing opportunities from emerging technologies, disruptive market entrants, and new consumer behaviours.
NJAL’s clients are the corporates, cities, and brands that are being displaced by these same trends. NJAL has spent ten years building a platform to scale innovation, talent, and ideas – in fashion, luxury, consumer goods, urban growth, and manufacturing.
NJAL is a company that has flourished in economic uncertainty, and represents the vanguard of tech-enabled creativity. For its clients and partners, NJAL can provide low risk and profitable solutions to outdated products and services, and evolve new business models that are fit for purpose for the decades to come.
