    Launching a new company

    The leading distributor to the education marketplace needed to create a new company for their move into healthcare. We helped them transform “products” to “brand” by focusing on their mission: to improve well-being.Our Brand Platform included naming, messaging, and value propositions. After exploring hundreds of name possibilities, we recommended SOAR Life Products to capture their mission and celebrate the caregiver. The tagline affirms it: “Empower minds. Strengthen bodies. Inspire creativity.”Our 360-degree approach included all the essential brand elements – a new logo, website, marketing collateral, tradeshow booth and Brand Standards Guide.

    Team Bios:

    Pooja Vukosavich

    “What if...?” That’s the question Pooja lives and breathes 24/7. Intensely curious, she’s always pushing boundaries and exploring new directions. As much a left-brainer as a right-brainer, she founded Studio V Design after working for one of Chicago’s top award-winning design firms.

    Peter Vukosavich

    He gets a rush from information. The more, the deeper, the broader, the better. Next step? “Building buckets” – organizing, deconstructing, analyzing and prioritizing information. The outcome is uncommon insight that translates to objectives, strategy, and a clear path to powerhouse communication.

    Bryn Doherty

    Quick with humor? You bet. She uses that delightfully skewed worldview to create work with a fresh angle that breaks through the clutter and makes clients smile. She's a true creative with wide-ranging interests and knowledge, refined by her experience across many disciplines.

    Kulov

    Another day, another Kulov. He’s never the same designer twice. Elegant, funny, graphic, bold, whimsical, minimal. Endlessly surprising and always compelling.

    Anna Mihajlovic

    Digital marketing? Check. Website edits? Check. Keeping projects on track? Yup. Brainstorming ideas? The list goes on. Anna is the kind of person who jumps right in and finds solutions – sometimes even before we realize there’s a problem!

    Lynn Lilly

    Lynn can’t resist the lure of the blank page. It’s a little bit of an obsession, really. She needs to fill it up with words and ideas. From advertising to digital to public relations, she has filled up pages for clients in education, consumer goods, healthcare, technology and non-profits.

    Mindy Kolof

    Mindy knows how to get inside your head. In a good way. She soaks up all the information she can about your business, customers and culture. You’ll probably find her at your trade show or sales meeting. That means when she starts an annual report, website or newsletter, she writes like an insider.

    Yolanda Oneal

    When it comes to finances, you want an expert doing the heavy lifting. That’s Yolanda – real world bodybuilder and financial champion. She puts her MBA brain and muscled brawn to work by managing our bookkeeping.

    Anant Chander

    Anant brings the world to everything he does. Yes, he’s worked in Singapore, India, London, Malaysia and the U.S. He’s a citizen of many disciplines: photography, videography, content development, web and social media analytics, with side trips into app development and research.

    Granite Selection



    The majority of countertop companies, in an attempt to attract more customers, resort to the tactic of advertising themselves as the cheapest company in the area.




    ABOUT THE PROJECT


    • Web Design / Development

    • Local SEO

    • Branding


    When we partnered with Granite Selection, formerly known as paylessforgranite.com, we wanted to shed that identity and become known as the company with the largest selection of stones, highest quality of customer service, most advanced technologies, fast and professional installations AND competitive pricing. Located in Elk Grove Village, IL, Granite Selection specializes in the distribution, design, fabrication and installation of custom natural stone countertops, vanities, shower walls and more. By partnering with us, they were able to change their corporate image from lowest price to affordable luxury.
    PROJECT GOALS

    • Establishing a new brand

    • Making the site mobile responsive

    • Creating interactive tools like a custom 30-second Quick Quote calculator, kitchen visualizer tool, and stone selector

    • We also established a helpful blog with design ideas, care tips, and guidance for finding the right stone type for you

    • Created “Recent Projects” section


    MARKETING RESULTS
    For SEO, we established over 100 backlinks within industry-specific platforms, blogs, and directories.
    We created a sophisticated SEO architecture with cross-linking.
    Through our work with PPC we improved the conversion rate by 122% (while overall conversion rate was at 165%)
    We also reduced the adWords budget by 85%.

    Pathway Vet Alliance Branding

    THE CHALLENGE
    Pathway needed to differentiate itself and attract new veterinary partners. As a growing company, it required a full branding exercise to establish vocal and visual consistency and a brand strategy that reflects its business strategy.
    THE SOLUTION
    A new name for the company, a visual brief and a manifesto video showcasing the company as change agents for good.
    From there, we created a brand voice, design system, go-to-market materials, a launch activation and internal communications with a townhall launch.
    THE RESULTS


    • Over 140 clinics added to U.S. operations since 2017

    • Resume submissions have grown 5x in 6 months

    • Inc. Magazine just ranked Pathway Vet Alliance as one of the fastest growing private companies

    • 35% growth in website traffic

    • 450% revenue growth in under three years

    Digital services and solutions agency

    The Challenge
    Despite its reputation among clients as a premiere digital solutions agency, many decision makers visiting the agency website viewed the company as a commodity development agency. As a result, the company was frequently offered low value development work with low margins.

    Our Approach
    In order to position the client as a provider of premier digital services and solutions, we took the following steps:


    • Analyzed popular search terms of the company's target audience and created original content that attracted decision makers.

    • Overhauled existing web copy, adding the relevant services and solutions which were missing from their current website.

    • Redesigned the new website experience to adhere to the best B2B design practices.



    The Results

    • Improved the company's findability and SEO rankings.

    • Increased qualified sales leads.

    • Drove incremental sales through new service offerings.

    Location intelligence platforms often feel overwhelming in practice, so Cuebiq turned to Rule29 to tell their story. We produced a wide variety of materials ranging from their website, presentations, environmental pieces and more. In addition, we created a powerful and intuitive UX/UI design for their SaaS platform, designed to present high-level data analyses that could be easily understood and evaluated, no matter an individual’s technical skills. 
    Along with the updated platform design, we had fun creating a comic book for the Cuebiq sales team that broke down the value proposition of their Clara product and additionally served as a memorable leave-behind piece. Working for the largest location intelligence database in the United States and their vibrant brand was a fantastic experience.

    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.

    INTEGRATING AWARENESS & DIRECT RESPONSE FOR MORE REVENUE


    Bai faced a variety of obstacles in creating a strategy for driving conversions online. As an emerging brand and a niche product that’s available from limited stores, Bai struggled to find ways to help consumers find them. In addition, Bai doesn’t ship direct—they use Amazon, which takes Google Shopping (PLAs) off the table and places limitations on analytics. Our challenges included identifying a target audience, generating awareness for this new brand, and measuring engagement over time.


    Our solution was to scale a comprehensive digital media strategy across a variety of platforms, blurring the lines between brand awareness and direct response advertising. For example, when we drove traffic to the company blog, those visitors became a part of our Remarketing List (Google) as well as our Website Custom Audiences on Facebook and Twitter. We were then able to use those lists for targeting on promotions and ad flights.
     We used Custom Dashboards in Google Analytics, along with Google Trends, scaling spend to capitalize on new opportunities. This piece improved visibility on how our digital initiatives affected store-level/offline conversions, as well as brand awareness.


    Bai’s revenue from paid search alone is up 543% year-over-year. Conversions on Google, including case sales, store locator interactions, email signups, and online offers, have increased by 3,400%. Traffic to Bai’s website from Google is up 410%, and they’ve seen a 325% increase in Facebook page likes (up to 51,000 likes from 12,000 last year).
    In 2014, Bai was only running Google Search. In 2015, BFO added remarketing, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and Twitter to the client’s strategy. We also ran Hulu ads for Bai’s new flavor launch during shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, Iron Chef, and more.
    In 2015, during a one-week Flash Sale on Amazon, we helped Bai sell 300% more cases of their product than they did during their best week in 2014.
