Work in Progress

In keeping with our mission for 2017 -- to partner with start-ups, not-for-profits and for-profit firms working with conscience and intention to better the world in some fashion -- it’s been satisfying (and fun) to be engaged outside our category in applying best practices brand building to the world of ecological stewardship.

A market front-runner, Van Dyk Recycling Solutions decided to go the whole nine yards in leveraging perceived strengths that were surfaced during our Discovery: intelligence, innovation, congeniality and high ROI as a recycling solutions provider. So, a bold, flexible branding line was crafted to ground the new positioning and address some of the problems that fresh communications would seek to overcome. Deliverables included a comprehensive print and online advertising campaign designed to deliver meaningful data (made good friends with Google Analytics Campaign URL Builder in the process) and tied to a microsite. As well, redesigned tradeshow displays were produced alongside a comprehensive set of brand guidelines and graphic templates for all elements of the campaign, so as to empower Van Dyk’s in-house marketing team.
