BRAND STRATEGY

Over the course of four weeks, in partnership with Made By Grizzly, branding agency, we conducted an in-depth discovery process with the goal of deeply understanding the brand and its current challenges and defining clear opportunities. Through the findings from creative workshops, key stakeholder interviews and three multidisciplinary focus groups, our teams clarified who Scripps Research is through a distinctive visual identity and key messaging. We created an effective brand architecture to represent the brand with consistency.
