CASE STUDY:
BRAND RE-DEFINITION AND REPOSITIONING FOR RESTAURANT CHAIN HAMBURGUESA NOSTRA

RESEARCH, EVALUATION AND BRAND DAY

For 3 months our team researched everything about the brand, its market, consumers and competitors. Through social media listening and the scanning of review sites such as Yelp, Trip Advisor and Google, we were able to evaluate weaknesses and identify opportunities. The investigation revealed the need to strengthen the brand among employees at every level of the value chain. As a result we set up a strategy that included internal marketing actions and CRM opportunities.

UNCOVERING THE BRAND’S ARCHETYPE

Through a series of one-on-one interviews with the group’s management, we identified the attributes of the brand, its values and differentiating elements. The archetype of the Gambler was revealed, reflecting the personality of the owner, true leader and decision-maker of the company. The archetype served as the glue and inspiration for the creation of a color palette, Brand Manifesto and a new graphic universe.

GLOBAL TREND-HUNTING

During the Brand Day, all findings of the research were discussed and contrasted with local and global trends. Managers were invited to reflect upon their vision for the company and what trends were most relevant to them. Based on those trends, each participant had to come up with a solution on how to integrate them in their value proposition.

EXPLORING A NEW VISUAL IDENTITY

The consulting process finalized with the completion of the group’s powerful and inspiring Brand Manifesto, and the graphic exploration of a new visual identity for the Hamburguesa Nostra brand. In order to appeal to new generations while maintaining the original symbology, we opted for a playful, stylized adaptation.

Around the logotype, we created an iconographic universe with a touch of retro that can be easily inserted, combined and expanded.
