A creative intelligence consultant OceanGroup, that helps companies transform their brands, has been selected by crazeeHeads, inc. to envision, execute and manage their branding and marketing program.

“This is a critical point in crazeeHeads’s long-term success,” stated Margaret Spiegel, President. “We are a small specialty fashion/apparel brand with a big goal — to convince skiers and snowboarders, particularly children, teens and their parents, that there are fashion accessories for winter sports helmets that make them look cool. OceanGroup understands what we are trying to do from both a business and societal perspective, making them an excellent partner for this work effort.”
“We’re excited about working to draw attention to the crazeeHeads brand and selling proposition,” added John Short, CEO of OceanGroup. “The brand is about making a smart and safe behavior, wearing a helmet while skiing or boarding, fashionable and fun. We believe in what the company is trying to accomplish and look forward to building a long, successful business relationship together.”

OceanGroup is located in Manhattan, with affiliates throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Since 2003, crazeeHeads has been creating decorative helmet covers as a fashion-friendly way to encourage skiers and snowboarders to wear helmets for safety purposes. The company works in conjunction with ski/snowboarding operators, industry associations and various helmet manufacturers to reinforce the idea of “maximizing winter fun and safety at the same time,” for both children and adults. crazeeHeads are also perfect for people who want to coordinate their helmet with a specific outfit, and/or want to create a unique look on the slopes. crazeeHeads helmet covers come in a variety of styles, ranging from the basic quilted nylon line, to their animal skin and luxurious plush animal collections.
