FROM RESEARCH, TO INSPIRATION, TO DESIGN: TO MARKET
Our Maxion brand strategy work began with research with internal and external stakeholders. Through EEI-led focus groups and other collaborative inquiry, we uncovered insights on the functional, emotional and societal importance of wheels.
Next, our team of strategists, writers and designers went to work on developing a new brand theme and graphic identity. The ideation process consisted of looking hither and yon for inspiration, posting it (literally) to the walls, and rolling up our sleeves to work toward a breakthrough.
The result was “Maxion: Wheels Matter,” positioning Maxion as a market leader. Our designers demonstrated how to pull the theme through all of Maxion’s communication channels; from logos, to the website, to videos, to the 3D world of trade show exhibits. Our strategists also advised senior management on using the theme as a catalyst to align global sales and marketing with a unified go-to-market strategy.
