The E49 and Aeris leadership teams held a series of workshops and meetings to collaboratively develop the brand strategy. In order to have a clear strategy, the rebrand needed to have calculated and meaningful adjustments to justify the changes. As a result of this collaborative effort, a 100% customized framework was developed and defines brand statements and standardized guidelines now. This framework also entails a clear differentiation strategy for the Aeris brand to connect authentically with its target audience–IT directors and CTOs–attract top talent, and boost its already established reputation within the cyber security industry.
Aeris’ leadership team had two main goals for this brand redesign project:
Aeris’ visual identity is inspired by the original logo to keep it familiar to existing clients. However, the colors were slightly adjusted to appear brighter and bolder to elevate the brand.
The new logo utilizes brighter, bolder orange and gray colors and features customized typography. This means it’s not a font with edits or adjustments to make a mark. This logo is completely original and 100% developed by our team at E49 Creative. As a result, Aeris has the ability to break away from traditional designs B2B brands use and showcase an unforgettable mark.
E49 developed a clear typographic hierarchy, social media posts, and business collateral which include business cards, letterhead, presentation decks, and proposal templates so that the new branding is cohesive across all communication channels. By arming the Aeris team with this set of tools, the brand can now maintain a premium feel for all its official communications.
At the conclusion of this redesign project, a Brand Master Guide is produced and delivered by the E49 team. This guide is a document with more than 60 pages and serves as a compass for the entire team—leadership and employees—at Aeris as it outlines the brand’s purpose, positioning, target audience, personality, and messaging framework. Additionally, the document includes visual identity systems and guidelines detailing how to use colors, logos, symbols, and other visual elements to create a strong and secure first impression.The brand now has a complete persona—with a recognizable voice, values, beliefs, and aspirations.
The new branding for Aeris is bold, authentic, and friendly—just like the team it represents. With a strategic brand strategy, the Aeris team has now a framework that can now help anyone internally to communicate its brand’s persona cohesively and break through the noise within in the Cybersecurity industry.
