Profian offers open-source products for Confidential Computing which enable organisations with sensitive applications or data to take advantage of the cloud and the edge. The cybersecurity company was still in the pre-product phase and didn’t have any viable brand identity. They wanted to launch a new website and communicate their product and service offering, but first, Profian needed a clear brand positioning with a new design identity.
Project A brought in an integrated team from our Brand and Communications as well as Design teams to establish a Minimum Viable Brand (MVB) for Profian. In a lean approach to branding, an MVB provides a company’s first brand positioning and design while maintaining a perfect balance between structure and flexibility. Right from the get go, an MVB helps internal staff to stay focused and aligned as well as to build external recognition and differentiation. To implement the project, we worked through the following steps:
By establishing their MVB, Profian is now equipped with strategic brand positioning and essential design assets such as logo, typography, a colour palette, imagery and sample applications. This makes their brand look consistent and professional in all communication channels. The MVB also laid the groundwork for the development of Profian’s website and their successful launch PR which they carried out after the MVB was done.
