Transcript of "Shanghai Fareast showcase (China)"

  1. 1. Fareast Shanghai, China Yacht manufacturer Global corporate identity story 2013 The Fareast showcase Taco Faber Rob Dekkers Result of a 10 day business trip to Shanghai and 2 weeks in the Netherlands.
  2. 2. Introduction The Fareast adventure This document describes in short the clients background, the challenge, our approach and the results in a 4 week period. Client: Shanghai Fareast Boats CO., LTD. was established in ‘02 and quickly became the biggest official Optimist builder in the world licensed by ISAF. Other small sailing crafts followed. Together with world famous yacht designers of Simonis-Voogd, they are now lining up with keel yachts between 18 and 54 feet including (high performance) cruisers, one design racers and catamarans. Fareast is ready to conquer the world as the only highly professional manufacturer of (keel) yachts, (race) ribs and smaller boats. Assignment: Fareast had a big launch coming up for their new yachting line and had to present a new brand image to the world, on the China International Boat Show in Shanghai April 10th 2013. We arrived in Shanghai at March 13th Results: New logo and corresponding branding strategy & marketing materials including stand design, brochure line and stationary. Team: Taco Faber (Art director in branding & design) and Rob Dekkers (Management consultant in New Business Development); both specialized in dynamic, complicated projects, delivering fast results in international environments.
  3. 3. Fareast ‘Deliver high quality and great design’ THE CHALLENGE Fareast products -production hall -quality control -cutting through the water After all the great successes last decade, it was a good moment to re-assess Fareast’s strong values and competencies in order to strengthen their identity for the next decade. The upcoming Shanghai boat show became their moment of truth and we had no time to lose. Quick, pragmatic but meaningful action was on top of our minds. Fareast found to have high worldwide ambitions; creating a great caring company to work for and dreaming to design & build the new America’s Cup yacht in the future. Our main (branding) challenge: “how to bridge the gap in client perception of ‘made in China’ products, while Fareast is a highly sophisticated company that exceeds ‘German quality’ and still can maintain a very acceptable price level.” All with the right radiation and worldwide recognition. Apart from the branding challenge, it was a major challenge how to manage and produce all this in such a short period of time.
  4. 4. Team up ‘working together and respect each other’ OUR APPROACH Flexible as we are, we radically had to change our prepared structured project plan as soon as we arrived. A pragmatic approach with daily adjustments and re-planning was more the rule than the exception. In order to manage the overall process and keeping track of the tight deadlines, we had to take the lead amongst all new ideas and initiatives. That demanded great flexibility and long hours work from our site. This dedicated commitment and together with the great teamwork with Fareast’s management, we were able to deliver so much high quality deliverables day in, day out. Though the basics in our approach stayed the same; - listen carefully and share knowledge - overcoming language barriers, cultural backgrounds and gaining confidence - organizing several workshops to gather the right input - balanced management involvement during the development of the results for acceptance and get the most out of the potential impact radiation - focus on the bigger picture and guide client through the dynamic process - open minded, ‘just do’ mentality, pro-active, be creative, team up
  5. 5. Breakout sessions ‘Get acquainted and trusted’ DETAILED ELEBORATIONS Branding, In the first 2 workshops we introduced brandmapping and the brandmodel to find out Fareast’s status quo, followed by their core values  competences. Great input showing their qualities and worldwide ambitions. To help them with that, we had to work on their new logo and its international radiation. Several Chinese design companies have been working on it already, but did not meet Fareast’s requirements. Based on the outcomes of these workshops, we worked out a presentation and storyline to be able to present Fareast’s new logo, icon and its radiation the next morning. We made the brand new ‘one design’ racer Fareast 31R subject of the global launch; its design was one of the elements of the new logo. Only by getting the logo and icon accepted in just a few days, we were able to build on that solid foundation for all the marketing communication elements that needed to be designed, and above all, the upcoming Shanghai boat show. Product naming, To make sure that the Fareast products are recognized worldwide, it is important to choose a product naming that is not confusing but clear, recognizable, and can be used all over the world. There for we proposed to distinguish several levels (company, business lines, category’s and products), combine the length with the characteristics of the products and also to use capitals at product level.
  6. 6. Working out details ‘working together and respect each other’ Brand- marketing materials, We brainstormed and prioritized several marketing communication elements; stand design, four yachting brochures with separate fact sheets, logo variants, stationary, promotion sail, hull stickers, flags, banners, new clothing line, press launch and invitations. Stand design, We only had a short time frame in Shanghai and agreed upon a pragmatic working method to mutually agree on all designs, delegate operational things to local agencies, but still keep control over the art direction and designs. We decided to invite a local stand building company (non English speaking) to sit with us and create the new stand design ‘on the fly’ in 6 hours. They built it accordingly, with great success. Brochures, The unique sales brochures were carefully designed to radiate the strengths of Fareast and their yachts. The selected images, company information, sailing characteristics, the high quality design, and the technical details give the reader a necessary insight. Tagline, The old tagline “Passion starts here” have been representing a very successful decade for Fareast. In the close cooperation with Fareast management, we could really feel their dreams, beliefs and values, and came up with the new tagline “Unlimited innovation”. This tagline will strongly represent Fareast at his best in the near future.
  7. 7. CLIENT RECOMMODATION It was a hectic and intensive 10 days with sincere collaboration that led to great deliverables and even greater fellowship and mutual trust. “they have done so many things in such short time” Ms Demolar Du (President of Far East) “one great caring, dedicated family” Mr Lu Weifing (General Manager of Far East) “without your help, we would not have succeeded. Thanks!” Ms Ellen Jiao (Manager international relations) “It was 100% perfect!” Maarten Voogd (Yacht designer of Simonis – Voogd) “this is what I need and can work with” Matt Wake (US distributor)
