Anatomy of a Sub-Brand. KBR Technology

August 30, 2010

In this case HOW does a small group of a big brand company make itself known in the world of its customers?

Make it powerful, simple, and about the client’s technologies. This was hard – as we set out to design nothing “technical” looking. We worked to find images that had just the right expression: Activity, growth, things in motion, people on the street – well, life.

We needed vivid and engaging colors to tell the story but not conflict with any brand standards. We selected colors from within the photo images. Each color choice is part of its environment, not part of a brand palette.

This campaign has five stand-out elements…

1. “HOW IN YOUR WORLD” – it’s the customers’ world

2. World photos – big local images

3. Colors – a palette from within the photos

4. Feature box – subject specific text

5. Small insert photo – KBR Technology professionals

And, strategically, two big brand tie-ins…

6. “Know-How Delivered” – a tagline extension of the big brand
is “We Deliver”

7. The logo is big brand, of course – the business unit TECHNOLOGY descriptor is nearby for the sub-brand customer

The creative team started with Richard Laurence Baron, Signalwriter, and included the Prism beans of Stacy Allen, Terry Teutsch and Susan Reeves.

Inspiration delivered by the clients at KBR Technology, of course.

What Goes ‘Round…

June 26, 2009


We (and Signalwrite Marketing’s Richard Laurence Baron) created a new Wood Group Gas Turbine Services theme-and-design-look that says, “Keep on Turning.” It seemed the next natural step was to turn the new tradeshow pamphlet into a circle, too.

The pamphlet, instead of just sitting in the booth or in some swag-bag, became a plaything as well as an information piece.  We’ve watched tradeshow attendees handle it, page through it, put it in their jacket pockets and take it out again because it fit so well.
