Project Description

A leading cardiac care medical device manufacturer was looking to develop and position a new brand, including new category creation.

The launch required establishing a new treatment paradigm, positioning both the new surgical-interventional approach and the new product, plus enhanced clinical support.

The team applied a ‘working backward’ approach to identify potential end-state scenarios and benefit-based concepts to direct brand development efforts.
