ESM was struggling. The previous owners had run what was a successful company into the ground, the new owner inherited a mess, but was determined to completely turn the company around. Along with a complete restructuring of the business processes, Frank Brands was drafted in to do a complete ground-up re-brand of the company.
After analysing 30 peer companies, my client agreed to take a very BOLD move. Whatever was the norm in colour, design, typestyles, imagery, and graphics – I took the opposite route. The key was to move from male/blue/techy/shouty nonsense – and shift the focus to a warm, feminine, conversational. aspirational.
