Founded over 30 years ago, The Carey Group have built an impressive track record of successful projects and growth as an industry leader in the construction and civil engineering business with a turnover exceeding £200 million.
Now a big player in the industry, Careys realised that they needed to sharpen their brand definition and develop a positioning and identity strategy that would set them apart from their competitors.
Youmeus developed a suite of brand assets for Careys that helped communicate a unique positioning for their business offer, delivered via a set of brand toolkits and frameworks. To achieve this, we worked extensively with Careys management team to help them define a series of brand values. These were then translated and delivered through a clearly defined and distinctive personality.
The project became a valuable asset for explaining the role of the brand to employees as well as a source of numerous communications campaigns that have since been carried out.
To ensure correct usage and to maintain ongoing brand management, Youmeus then developed a set of brand guidelines, encompassing the brand identity devices, brand mark, colours, photography, corporate typefaces and brand voice. [View case study].
An interesting video viral from Coca-Cola, part of its global "Open Happiness" campaign. The producers of this video secretly installed a modified Coca-Cola vending machine overnight - along with five hidden cameras. What's nice about this is the genuine excitement and authentic reactions it has created.
This art installation by Dutch artist Zeger Reyers was put into motion at the opening of the exhibition Eating the Universe at Germany’s Kunsthalle Düsseldorf. "Rotating Kitchen" will keep rotating throughout the show until February 28th 2010, so things will be really messy by then.
