    Big Apple Bagels

    The Situation
    BAB Systems, the national franchiser of Big Apple Bagels and My Favorite Muffin wanted to embark on an expansion of its national footprint within the world of quick, casual dining - a very volatile environment where you can be over-baked, under-funded and up against the big boys without a paddle if you don’t have a cohesive, branded identity that supports your franchisees and defines the customer experience they work hard to cultivate and maintain.
    The Challenge
    BAB Systems, the national franchiser of Big Apple Bagels, asked us to create and launch its first-ever national advertising and marketing campaign. They also were in need of a brand refresh; defining a new color scheme, typography system, and brand guidelines.
    Our Solution
    We completely redesigned their consumer-facing website, in-store menus, branding elements, directed photography, and developed their new tagline. We also branded their new breakfast sandwiches, launched annual national consumer sweepstakes, and created national sales events utilizing direct mail, print, and social media.
    The Results
    We moved the needles! On franchise sales, both regionally and nationally there was an aggregate sales bump of 6.7%. This increase resulted in over $2.5 Million in added sales in the first year alone. That was followed by consistent increases in ensuing fiscal periods through planning and launching quarterly and interim national promotions that redefined the sales and marketing strategies of the brand.

    Total rebranding


    The first phase of re-branding European Furniture Warehouse was a name change. EuroFurniture is not only shorter, it matched the url of their website, and discards negative “warehouse” implications.
    The furnishings sold are contemporary, mostly high-end, and imported directly from artisanal Italian design houses. We felt the word “warehouse” was no longer appropriate for the retail showrooms, even though they’re gigantic (three stories full!)
    Check out our EuroFurniture video case history.
    The second much-needed phase was an update of the corporate identity. The old, dated logotype and mark were replaced by contemporary graphics, with a strong color palette for use in advertising and marketing. Even a tastefully restrained logo was placed on the side of their stylish Mercedes step van delivery vehicle. The delivery guys actually wear white gloves, by the way.


    A new tagline, too: Grand Contemporary Design. The last two words are straightforward enough, but Grand carries three meanings: the scale of the showroom, the artistic level of Italian (and American, Swedish, and a few other) designers, plus a subtle reference to the emerging Grand Design District, the area in Chicago that the showroom anchors, at 2145 West Grand Avenue.

    Gonesh incense: Social Media Branding and Messaging

    Genieco was looking to increase its audience base and generate sales of its GONESH® incense across new markets in the U.S. The goal was to bring incense into the mainstream and promote more common use among broader consumer groups. Finding a way to overcome the stigmas typically associated with incense burning and reach a wider range of consumers were key challenges. Strengthening the brand’s online presence was also important in order to build a larger audience base to market to in the future.
    To gain insight into the marketplace and learn about the perception and behaviors of incense users, we created and executed in-depth online consumer surveys of key demographics nationwide. This data was used to determine accurate strategy and messaging direction for a new campaign designed to reach new audiences.
    The campaign helped double GONESH’s Facebook fan base in only three months, and more than triple its social following within nine months. Today, those numbers continue to grow, as do the brand’s national sales.
    In fact, the demographic research and success of the online campaign has led to the development of an entirely new brand for Genieco. We worked to create the name, the look, the feel, the messaging, and the launch strategy for the new brand—GONESH® SPARKZ Sticks.

    Innovative Express Care

    ChallengeWhen we began working with them, Innovative Express Care was just breaking into the urgent care space in Chicago. As a relatively new player, they needed to build a presence in a crowded and competitive Urgent Care industry in a meaningful (and profitable) way.
    SolutionTransform the perception of the Urgent Care patient visit from a transaction to a relationship.
    We first dug into the patient segmentation to understand the different types of patients who seek urgent care in Chicago. We interviewed stakeholders and patients at IEC to test our initial hypotheses, and then surveyed patients in order to reinforce our findings.
    Having a deeper understanding of our target audience, we created positioning and pillars around the core value proposition “Healthcare Evolved.”
    We then developed a digital and above-the-line campaign which included traditional channels such as print, mailers, OOH, and broadcast, as well as digital channels to reach different audience segments.ResultsThe results showed an overwhelmingly positive audience response. Our client experienced a 600% increase in revenue over the first two years of the campaign.
    This provided the jumpstart to the business that Innovative Express Care needed - they are now well positioned for the future as they expand their practice and services, such as offering Concierge and Primary Care.

    Be Fair Be vegan

    Our goal was to activate, engage and educate Seattle through high impact media placements.  We wanted to increase awareness for Be Fair Be Vegan’s purpose – animal equality, humane farming and the end of all animal use.  “The whole campaign was beautifully executed, and we loved all the placements…We were so happy with the results of our collaboration that we’ve decided to make TEC a long term partner, and look forward to working together on future campaigns.” – Be Fair Be VeganWe combined online and offline media to generate local buzz in Seattle, and drove online site traffic by strategically applying robust optimizations and targeting methods. We discovered which media channels resonated with our target audience.  The campaign drove the highest levels of web traffic ever received from a media campaign. Many placements were featured around Be Fair Be Vegan’s community-wide vigil.   All learnings are now being leveraged in other future market campaigns.
