What do we do when faced with a mature market?

When a company finds itself stuck in a market at identity and communication levels, redefining can be risky. Nevertheless, this provides the company a great advantage over the competition when positioning at Top Of Mind.

The process

Analysis

Through a benchmark and macro environmental analysis of the hot forging sector at international level, we discovered that the competition’s image was outdated and still based on that used in the nineties. This opened up a great opportunity that allowed for new styles and communications.

Identity

We developed a comprehensive image based on visual codes which were easy to understand using explanatory sketches and diagrams, describing the beneficial company aspects. We suggested a chromatic range found in the forging sector: bronze, copper and aluminium grey. We succeeded in upgrading the brand to its present modern technological image.

Testing phase

The testing phase carried out on existing and possible future clients was more than satisfactory. The understanding of the information and values was full. Today, these values are part of the essence of Neotecman and part of the new communication codes within the sector.
