Session Title

Flash Branding: The Red Hot Strategy to Speed Through Rebranding

Developing an AEC firm brand is a creative, thoughtful, and often time consuming effort, usually involving many pieces and players. But what happens when there isn’t time to do it the traditional way? This workshop will explore the unusual circumstances that caused two AEC firms (and MilesHerndon themselves) to use an accelerated strategy called Flash Branding.

This session will explain the considerations and benefits of using a fast-tracked branding approach with two case studies. Understand how two freshly rebranded firms—Idibri (Dallas, San Diego, UK) and Enverity Engineering (Indianapolis)— collaborated with branding consultant Josh Miles to solve their challenges. We’ll explain what drove each firm’s need for speed, plus detail their branding objectives, strategies, results and lessons learned. While rebranding can often take a year or more. Learn how these firms successfully rebranded in a matter of weeks, and if this strategy is right for your firm.
