ramsac offer IT support and managed services, and had developed a good reputation locally for providing IT solutions. Their brand ethos was excellent, and while internally they truly lived the brand, their existing identity didn’t reflect this to their external audience.
Their logo and strapline created more than 13 years ago no longer matched up to who they had become, and with a new partnership with a leading professional services firm, ramsac needed to develop a refreshed identity to accurately represent their brand values and ethos, but also to have a national appeal without alienating their existing customer base.
We began the project with a brand scoping workshop, allowing us to establish which elements of the brand identity were not capturing ramsac’s personality. This enabled us to realign the identity, develop the strapline and create the core messaging. In our scope it also became evident that a new website was required, to reflect the revised brand, but also to improve audience engagement.
We needed to deliver a modern brand that would resonate with a national audience, whilst not alienating local customers. With an evolution of the existing logo, we gave ramsac a premium look. We derived a revised colour palette to reflect the realigned identity, with a dark navy as the core colour signifying trust, strength and dependability, and a contrasting mint green as the secondary colour signifying freshness.
The new brand better represents the modern professionalism of the firm and in the first few weeks the sales and marketing team have already seen an uplift in conversions from web traffic, as potential customers can see more easily, what the business offers.
"Working with Something Big has been an absolute delight. They were very quick to understand the essence of our business and our final branding selection was really that which was presented at the first meeting – they just got it! The team have worked diligently to provide a brand and website project on time and on budget, despite us giving them an incredibly tight target for project launch."
