  • Philadelphia’s newest museum, The Faith and Liberty Discovery Center, was branded and successfully marketed based on Mower research that found the museum would garner broad appeal if it utilized a historical and interactive approach with a focus on values all Americans can get behind, such as liberty, justice, unity, hope and love.
  • The rebrand of Syracuse Behavioral Healthcare to Helio Health included extensive research conducted by Mower to determine the new name of the organization and its approach to advertising.
