As experts in creating new business ideas and brands, Armstrong was asked to get involved right at the start of the rebrand project.
As with any new entity, we needed a strong and memorable name for the brand. Something we could use as a solid foundation to create a key positioning statement, website and more.
Our team hosted a brand creation workshop as part of the rebrand process, which helped us to launch ADAPT – Amari Digital Printing Technology – to the world.
