John D. McGovern, Director
“From the initial consultation with Frawley Branding, it was clear we had chosen the right company to handle our rebranding. I was very impressed with their approach to the rebranding process. They quickly developed an understanding of our business. Through research and expertise, backed by their enthusiasm, they achieved a result that gives Camden Square very clear and strong positioning in a competitive and crowded marketplace.”

With inherent good taste, combined with a meticulous selection process, John D, Jen and the team have led Camden Square to pioneer a new era in style for men who dare.

This brand mark celebrates the non-conformist. It’s about confidence, independence and bravery, an ode to those daring enough to push the boundaries of style.
Just as the beat of military drums were used for communications, this brand mark communicates the mantra of Camden Square: ‘To those who march to the beat of their own drum” Noting the deep sense of history, we have used a stabilising brown capturing the resounding dependability and sincerity of the Camden Square store with a dash of blue to express the bold and free spirit.
