The direct route to top-of-mind of everyday people, their bellies!

 

We believe there may be no other, more direct route to the top-of-mind of everyday people than through their bellies than through the experiences they have with each other around the dinner table.

When a caliber of design is met, people trust that your solutions can deliver

 

What makes your business tangible? Science is one of the most challenging industries to build a wide audience that understands what you do and who you are. With Opus 12 being stuck in the lab, they saw value in building their business presense from the digital ground up.

Go to Market: Foodservice

Trending searches for media are a great way to grasp what's new or popular, but that's only a fraction of the content out there. Having a way to see what your friends are watching and also make recommendations allows you to get more personal with context.

Already a major player in the industry, Opus 12 needed to build a business that would better reflect them

Simply telling their story got boiled down to what was or will be, but to build tangibility, we needed improve what was right now. Opus 12 didn't just need an avenue to tell their story… they needed to build an inspiring personality.

Sales Process: Qualification

Opus 12 had a proven technology and a dream team of Stanford co-founders that created a core vision for what their technology would be.

They now needed help getting their vision out of the lab and becoming a more tangible business that would inspire others as much as their technology does. There's a threshold of believability, when a certain caliber of design is met, your audience trusts that your business can deliver a top notch solution. Why should they consider anything less?

Opus 12

Getting increased pressure from investors to iterate their persona and better communicate what their business purpose was to customers. They had a proven technology and a dream team of Stanford co-founders that created a core vision for what their technology would be… they now needed help getting their vision out of the lab and becoming a tangible business that would inspire others as much as their technology did. 

Opus 12 quickly realized that working with us was going to go much further than just designing a brochure website… that we would not only bring a unique persona to their technology, but that we’d help find that tangible business persona that would help them visualize what their company would be internally and help them communicate that externally. 

Science is one of the most challenging industries to build a wide audience that understands what you do and who you are. In order for their persona to become tangible, we wanted to appeal to more than just scientists… we sought to design a persona that all types wanted to champion (especially since they were also tackling a rather important climate issue). We wanted to merge design and science.

Ultimately Opus 12 was building reactors that converted waste inputs to various useful chemical outputs. From fuels to everyday consumer products. We started by designing a logo that had visual momentum in explaining what their technology was… so that we had design equity to bring into various business materials (pitch decks, product data sheets, etc) all the way to more consumer friendly channels like their social media platforms.

Opus 12 continues to utilize us like a Design Co-Founder… helping them establish team moral with design/branding materials as well trusting us to have a deeper understanding of their technology to make suggestions on how best to iterate their first marketing materials or create an enticing look and feel for their actual hardware.
