Brand strategy

Just like the buildings you construct, successful brands have to be developed with a solid foundation that represents your team’s core values and purpose. We identify and define the audiences who are most primed to engage with your services, conduct research and gather insights to determine the true points of differentiation from your competitors and then develop the perfect strategy to build an effective brand with strength and clarity.

Positioning

There are several companies that provide similar services or products in your industry, but none have the same capabilities, team, culture and passion that you do. We analyze the competitive landscape and identify opportunities for you to stand apart and proclaim your own unique position that will attract and build loyalty of prospective audiences or team members.

Logo design

Your brand identity, otherwise known as your logo, is the flag on top of your building that distills everything your company represents into one strong icon. Through a transparent and collaborative process, we partner with your team to develop the symbol and visual language that proclaims your team’s unique capabilities, values, culture and vision, both now and well into the future.

Graphic assets

Based on the initial logo we develop iconography, typography, color palettes and other graphic elements that make up a visual toolkit that differentiates you from the area’s competing building businesses. We then build out a custom set of the assets you need to enhance your business, whether it’s business cards, site signage, even apparel, vehicle graphics and social media posts. The list goes on…

Messaging

A consistent messaging framework under a strong brand story allows your team to stay aligned, informed and inspired. It also helps you educate your clients about the philosophy behind your process throughout the project journey. We develop strategic verbal language to better communicate across all company channels, from marketing and business development, to operations, human resources and client service.

Standards

A brand is only as strong as how it gets implemented. We develop a comprehensive visual manual that explains every component of the brand system, starting with initial company philosophy to your positioning, messaging and tagline. We also outline proper use of the logo, colors, typography, images and graphics to allow your team members to confidently perpetuate your brand through all future marketing channels and applications.

Franklin Pacific Construction

As we talked with the Franklin gentlemen, it became clear that we should swim upstream to their brand and messaging before tackling their marketing. We developed a logo and brand system to represent their niche expertise in all things concrete and foundational structures.

Byron Automation

Simplifying the name to a more solid and American-sounding Byron Automation, we designed a logo mark to represent a single finely-tuned machine replacing the power of many men. We established the messaging Beyond Manpower and developed a brand system – including sell-sheets, video, tradeshow display, signage and website – that now positions Byron as the authority in automated agricultural machinery.

The crew over at Rusty George Creative invested their time to understand our goals, embrace the marketing strategy and truly collaborate. Results were a visual brand identity and accompanying tool kit that clearly resonated with the right audience – measured by us as engagement, lead generation and content engagement. The tasteful balance of setting, lifestyle, casual luxury, and PNW styling hit the mark. Just the logo alone practically tells the whole Panorama story!
