  9. 9. 9 Xbox – Microsoft Our Success: Case Study Creating a brand name for a revolutionary video game console Microsoft asked us to develop a name that would resonate with gamers around the world and compete against other major industry players such as Sony, Nintendo, and Sega. From our conversations with Microsoft, this new gaming console was expected to communicate the following attributes to the target audience: Respondents quickly connected with Xbox, noting that it was ‘easy to say,’ ‘cool,’ and different from other console names.

  10. 10. 10 Escalade – Cadillac/General Motors Our Success: Case Study Brand name creation for Cadillac’s new luxury entrant to the otherwise rugged SUV market. Cadillac desired a name that would revitalize the Cadillac brand and develop a single identity that would redefine the SUV market. The following eight names were developed and evaluated through QualiQuantitative Interviews that specifically included 100 SUV dealers and 100 individuals who had owned an SUV for a minimum of three years. Patagonia, a legally viable name in the automobile sector, spoke to vehicle ‘ruggedness’ and was recommended for a partnership with the outdoor clothing/gear company of the same name. Though respondents were not so attracted to the name Evoq, Cadillac later used the neologism (made-up word) for a concept car that later became the CTS. Terrex referred to ‘terrain’ and ‘extreme,’ and respondents noted it had an ‘x-factor’ that signaled the ‘great unknown’. Compass evoked a positive response for having an ‘outdoor feel’; the name was later used by Jeep for its compact crossover vehicle.

  11. 11. 11 Xenical–Roche Pharmaceuticals Our Success: Case Study Creation of a global brand name for a prescription medication that assists obese patients to lose weight and keep it off. The primary focus in developing this brand name was ‘subliminal messaging’. After rigorous global linguistic analysis and trademark screening, we subjected our 12 brand name finalists to a ScoreCard analysis to evaluate the phonetic, aural, visual, and syllabic elements of each name. To further evaluate the resonance of each potential name candidate, we conducted QualiQuantitative Interviews with 200 respondents including dieticians, physicians, and obese patients. • Respondents noted that Modese implied a ‘modification to obesity.’ • Asatia served as our secondary recommendation, resonating with feelings of ‘satisfaction’ and ‘satiation.’ • Respondents quickly connected with Xenical, noting it as efficacious, peaceful, effective, and powerful. Most notably, it is ‘zen-like.’ Asatia Erastae Lithera Modese Quotra Arcesa Brevin Destive------- ------ ------ ------- -------- -------- ------ ------ ----- ----- ----- ----- --------------- Brand name finalists Our research revealed the following: Brand name recommendation ------ ------------- Sylaphe -------- Venix -------- Xenical® ----- -----Zalign

  13. 13. 13 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Project Kickoff Competitive ReviewNaming Strategy PHASE 1 Landscape Analysis & Review Identify and understand existing name strategy, positioning, market research, potential for growth. Analyze how competing brands are presented, viewed, named, and accepted in the target market. Uncover insights and define objectives with key project stakeholders. Our team will ask a battery of questions in order to understand: What types of messages should the brand portray to existing and future customers? Who do you currently consider to be your customer base? The future customer base? What type of name do you believe would have the greatest impact (i.e., descriptive, “made-up,” non- English, and/or a real word)?
  14. 14. 14 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Naming Brief Final Candidate ListName Creation PHASE 2 Name Development Identify the framework for developing the brand name candidates, based on the insights from the naming strategy. Analyze the name candidates with regard to structural analysis, trademark, domain, and common law availability and harvest a short list of ten to twelve final candidates. Uncover naming candidates through three separate iterations of deep source mining and ideation exercises. A proper name and brand strategy hinges upon discovering the authentic essence and purpose of the brand across all of its receptions—its brand ethos. Name development will be performed through an iterative process. The first iteration will contain thirty to thirty-five brand name candidates. Our creative team will present each name and identify patterns of words or styles upon which to expand. We will continue to develop lists of potential brand names until we generate a finalized candidate list of ten to twelve mutually agreed-upon brand names to take into Phase 3. Our Approach Creative Process Using a combination of deep inquiry pursuits and ideation exercises, we seed and harvest a short list of name candidates that express the brand’s ethos across a comprehensive range of associations, connotations and evocations, in line with the conceptual target we have established.
