Genesis Genetics about

solutions

Genesis Genetics is the pioneer of preimplantation genetic testing of embryos for inherited genetic abnormalities. Founded by world-renowned scientists largely responsible for discovering and implementing the first successful cases of Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), they have spent more than 25 years on their goal of helping build healthy families all over the globe.

Recently, RBD compared Genesis to other geneticsbased companies. While the company’s direction was still moving forward, serving as leaders in the field, its brand felt stuck, heavy and outdated.

situation From early in its existence, Genesis was ahead of the curve in terms of research and technology. But what their brand leveraged in science, it lacked in connection with a broader audience. The implication of the people impacted by the process was not as direct as it could be.

revised logo

We began an exploration of the company, including interviews with staff, patients and clinicians. We developed mission and vision statements, as well as a wide range of new logo options. From streamlining the current logo to discovering new icons, we presented concepts that exposed Genesis to new colors, new typefaces and new ways of thinking about themselves. In addition, we created a style guide to support any design needs and to create a unified voice and appearance for all materials. Photography became more targeted to the audience, featuring emotive, family images for patients and clean science for clinics. With their new logo in place, we were able to create new brochures, patient and clinic folders, trade show displays, social media posts and website, connecting their rejuvenated identity with their advancing position in the world of genetic testing.

They consistently supply precision-machined parts at the lowest cost possible, and are focused on expanding their strengths in raw-material manufacturing, machining and assembly.

situation In an effort to increase their presence and reach a wider customer base, Gil-Mar decided it was time to renovate their website and produce additional materials that would help them connect with new audiences. While they felt secure in their product offerings and service, they knew they needed a sleek and modern presentation to what could be gritty work.

website: gil-mar.com

solutions RBD created powerful tools for Gil-Mar to present itself to potential clients. From a redesigned website that speaks directly to the company’s strengths and products, to infographics explaining their global outreach, to custom PowerPoint presentation templates that give the client the flexibility to tailor messaging to a potential audience, Gil-Mar was able to take their communication goals in their hands and make them work.

All Med Medical situation

about

In a highly competitive field, All Med’s dedicated team makes a difference. The people behind the service, not just the service itself, keep their clients coming back. When attracting new clients, they needed to get this personal approach understood at a visual level.

All Med Medical Supply was established in 1995 as a full-line medical distributor and billing company committed to serving post-acute providers throughout the Midwest. All Med’s strength is the ability to guarantee customers the right products, at the right price and at the right time. They deliver all the benefits of a large organization but with the insight, care and commitment only a local organization can offer.

solutions RBD created a variety of collateral materials, insert sheets and trade show displays that emphasized the partnership nature of All Med’s business model — they provide the best to their clients, who in turn can provide the best to their clients. With warm images of people and appropriate industry details, the overall look is clean, engaging and consistent. In addition, RBD created magnetic nametags for in-office and trade show use.

(VRSI) has been providing customers with state-of-the-art vision solutions for metrology (the scientific study of measurement), industrial robot guidance, and inspection since 1998. They offer flexible, intelligent automation systems at every step of production.

situation As a growing company in an expanding industry, VRSI found themselves ready to increase their workforce and attract high-caliber candidates. While attending trade shows and job fairs, their team required informational displays that would be both easy to transport and eye-catching.

solutions RBD created two versions of a career opportunity display unit — one as a table top, one as a banner. In each case, the brand is strongly supported by industry images of the industry and clear call to action. Each unit folds easily into self-contained carrying cases and allows for consistent messages to be shared simultaneously in different locations.

situation In an effort to keep Michigan top of mind for prospective students, the Admissions team was looking for new ways to reach them throughout their school decision-making process. They also wanted ways to attract more top tier students, building upon their goal to develop the “leaders and best.” Students needed to receive messages and designs in ways that embodied the Michigan experience — energetic, engaged and informed.

RBD Creative researched not only U-M but other medical schools across the country and around the world. Interviews with current students and Admissions team members revealed key attributes of the school and its philosophy. Working closely with the Health System’s Marketing and Communications Department, we devised themes and creative styles that complemented the University’s larger branding mission. Print and digital media worked hand in hand, sharing styles from brochures and Z-cards to social media infographics and email newsletters.

Funding Solutions solutions

about Since 1999, Funding Solutions has helped secure millions of dollars in franchise financing for hundreds of happy clients across the country. The staff has professional expertise in the finance industry, with experience in securing financing for franchise units, multi-unit franchises, remodeling and equipment.

situation The search for franchise funding is a daunting task. Funding Solutions needed ways to inform their clients in an approachable manner, assuring them that their goals are attainable and Funding Solutions would be there every step of the way.

RBD Creative bolstered the brand with a modern typeface and energetic colors. As the Funding Solutions team were seen as “heroes� to their clients, an illustrated mascot named Francis was used as a symbol of strength and support for those seeking funding. Bold fields of color and headlines were used to pique interest and keep information easy to read. Our goal: to keep the message strong and consistent across all platforms — from their revised website to their multifaceted trade show displays.
