2017 was a whirlwind year full of building new brands, launching innovative digital experiences, re-engaging with clients for new initiatives and winning awards. As we start focusing on 2018, the BrandExtract team is excited to share a few exceptional highlights from last quarter. 

Marathon Oil expresses brand refresh with new digital experience

Marathon Oil transformed its website to better reflect the E&P company’s brand and align with its strategy and values. The end result is a bold and innovative website that engages key audiences. Streamlined navigation and high-quality content deliver quick hits of relevant information about the business, the company’s journey and its future vision. The new website was built in our secure, browser-based content management system, SAM, that makes it easy to run and manage the website. Explore Marathon Oil’s new online experience here.

Supporting women and children with cancer through the Kareem Jackson Foundation

Last October, we helped spread brand awareness for the inaugural Kareem Jackson Foundation, whose mission is to provide families with women and children with cancer daily encouragement and life-changing experiences. The event raised over $190,000 which will fund two programs: Pretty in Pink Luncheon and Christmas in July.
