Over a decade ago, we became the first marketing agency for Midtown Video, a systems integrator and video production company. After conducting a BrandBooster session, we proposed the theme “Video is our life.” It still applies today and still informs all marketing as well as being the rallying cry for the internal culture. Over the years we have conducted research for planning purposes as well as development of marketing materials online and off.
ChoicePoint, a public company in Alpharetta, Georgia provides data and analytics. We introduced the flagship product of DBTOnline, a recent acquisition, to the banking industry creating a much simpler and cost-effective approach than the company envisioned and generating more responses than they expected.
Also, we helped sort out ongoing brand design challenges. The company had several products, and each were targeted to several markets. We worked on the brand architecture overall, and the design guidelines by company and market.
This Norwegian technology company provided security services accessible online for remote viewing. We handled their entry into the U.S. market.
The project began with research which included two BrandBooster sessions: one to gain insights for strategic positioning using employee input, and one with their developers to identify other opportunities for their software. A competitive analysis and executive interviews were also conducted as well as interviews with current and past clients.

National Healing provides wound-healing services for hospitals nationwide. They were growing fast and hired us to create a brand identity that reflected their stature. The process included an audit of current materials, a BrandBooster session to take advantage of internal intelligence in developing a strategic plan, competitive research and executive interviews.

Materials we created included:
a Brand Guide to inform a dispersed workforce
a new corporate design identity including logo and signage
media plan and advertising
development of all sales materials
