A project for BIOCOM Institute
Pro Bono Time
At the Institute we are working with such a diverse audience (K-"Grey"), and with so many pioneering programs that help the community, however our corporate identity is hard to pinpoint.
We are at the stage where our initiatives are becoming programs of national interest and we will be able to extend our reach and exponentially help people. Ultimately an educated workforce saves lives and preserves our environment, allowing our community to prosper.
Since what we do is so intricate- I think that our brand must be the opposite: deconstructed and simple.
We would like help messaging the impactful and varied work we do in a way that is compelling, concise, and easily understood!
Here is a taste of what you will have to work with!
Values: Creativity, Advancement, Passion, Energy
Mission: Educate and cultivate the science and technology pipeline to promote innovation, job creation and economic growth.
Vision: Constantly evolving resources to meet industry needs.
Tagline: Elevating Disruptive Creativity
Philosophy: We think differently
Audience: K- "Grey"
Brand messaging conveys an organization's mission, values, and personality to the outside world. Understanding and clearly articulating this messaging is the foundation of an organization’s marketing and communications strategy. Brand messaging should include a positioning statement, tagline and supporting statements that address an organization's vision, mission, values, history and key stakeholders. This is a highly collaborative project between the organization and the professional, and it does not include a Logo Design or other visual identity elements.
