Project Description

Healthcare Market Research Company Team

A medical device company, formed via a pharma company spin-out, was looking to establish a unified corporate brand.

The single-brand approach required integrating various division and product offerings, including establishing a brand architecture and coordinated messaging framework.

Internal strategy sessions, best practices, competitive assessment, and physician research were used to evaluate strategic alternatives. Recommendations included brand architecture principles, classifications, and a naming decision tree to guide implementation.
