Watch the case study

We developed a brand key and aligned on a series of desired criteria for brand name development, running qualitative tests to verify target audience acceptance. The resulting brand reflected the unique local activity, people, solution, and purpose, providing a critical foundation to guide the development of the brand name and identity.
