Case Study: IDEX Health & Science

Case Because IDEX Health & Science was originally a conglomerate of eight distinct sub-brands, they were viewed as product distributors that offered a variety of industry-leading products. Customers had difficulty identifying which company was behind their preferred products. This lack of overarching brand distinction both under-represented IDEX’s capabilities and caused confusion in the market place. Strategy Through strategic development and application of the Brandgineering by Design™ process, IDEX Health & Science products and services were restructured under one brand platform. Branded collateral was able to inspire a fresh and unified take on IDEX Health & Science as a premier health and science parts supplier. IDEX Health & Science’s refreshed brand platform paired the ‘Fluidics for Life’ brand promise with [...]

During the discovery phase, our team identified a window of opportunity to rebrand their company and target future expansion possibilities. Strategy As a long-standing contributor to Majestic Glove creative, we were able to identify a cohesive strategy for their company growth. Majestic has behind it a rich history of quality and production, which made the growing pains of modernization the most challenging aspect of developing their brand.

Case Study: Diamo Powersports

Case As a boutique importer in the motorsports industry, Diamo felt distanced from their consumers and overshadowed by huge industry names such as Honda and Yamaha.

Strategy Ironmaster’s new look needed to be modern and clean while delivering the same emphasis on values and high-quality products that had been their hallmark for over thirty years.

Case Study: Nastech Photography

Case Nastech Pharmaceuticals (now Marina Biotech) was an emerging pharmaceutical research and development company needing an edge to set them apart from the sea of tired stock image choices in the competitive pharmaceutical industry. Strategy V2Works was approached to create an extensive library of marketing imagery and product photography.

Case Study: The Napoleon Company

Case One of Seattle’s original family-owned and operated businesses, The Napoleon Company is a leading importer of gourmet foods in the US. Founded in 1903, the company has a richly storied past, but found their imagery to be lacking the professionalism and visual depth they needed when entering their second century of business. Strategy V2Works approached Napoleon’s photography with the attitude that cooking is art, and treated their subject as such. Using warm colors and organic, artistic staging, we created a comprehensive library of imagery that draws the viewer in and showcases their world-class products. Results Completely redefining the company’s visual impact in the imported foods marketplace, Napoleon’s new imagery was such a hit that they doubled the quantity [...]

Case Study: Marten River Lodge

Case Situated in one of the most picturesque wilderness areas in Northern Ontario, Marten River Lodge was a well-kept secret for much of their 88-year history. Opened to the public in 1925, they had maintained their rustic appeal with full hunting and fishing accommodations, but were finding it difficult to strike the balance between family resort and sportsman’s paradise. When V2Works was brought in, we identified the key challenges they faced, and established a game plan for an updated identity, new website, refreshed property photography, and engaging marketing collateral. Strategy The first step towards the new Marten River was capturing exciting new photography of the expansive beauty of the property, which V2Works did by traveling 3,000 miles to the wilds [...]
