Sarah Miller and Partners is a creative and strategic brand consultancy which takes an editorial approach. It was founded by Sarah Miller, an award-winning editor with more than 30 years of experience in a wide range of luxury lifestyle sectors: specifically Architecture and Design, Hotels and Restaurants, Fashion, Wellness and Travel.
Just as Editors are curators of their brand, so Sarah Miller and Partners will help curate yours.
We build brands strategically, develop them through associations and partnerships and engage with key communities and media.
We answer the needs of your consumers and get to know their habits in intimate detail. We combine market intelligence, strategic thinking, and industry knowledge with an ‘editorial’ approach to enhancing the user experience in our development of brand strategies, positioning and identities for the luxury lifestyle sector from property companies to major hotel brands.
We assemble bespoke teams of 'partners' - from graphic designers to hoteliers, restaurateurs to retailers for each and every client. We also create content across multiple platforms, from Web TV/Film and digital to print, for some of the leading brands in the world as well as working with more niche clients.
We make introductions and organise events – from awards, ceremonies to private parties – and create all manner of collaborations between commerce and content.
We love coming up with big ideas but pride ourselves on the detail and delivering a holistic programme of brand strategy, development and content. (This could range from analysing competitor sets, developing a customer journey and introductions to hoteliers, to websites and coffee table books, talks and cultural salons). We don’t do things by format. In fact the only format is consistently re-inventing the way we work on a client-by-client basis.
We offer bespoke solutions from handpicked people dedicated to raising the bar. We take the time to understand our clients’ needs and we offer extra value from our global network of partners.
