Acquiring a well known product brand.
How to integrate a product with an already well known brand of its own.
MAKING THE TRIAGE BRAND FEEL AT HOME
The acquisition of the well known Triage brand (a high-performance, comprehensive testing platform for use in the laboratory or at the point of care), used by hospitals and physician offices worldwide. The test menu includes cardiovascular and toxicology assays.
The color system was came from the original company and acquired by another company that put its own mark on the brand. The goal here was to integrate the brand into the Quidel overall brand system. We found that the original color system was well known to its customers, but many of the values were very close to each other. When a customer might be using a color to recognize a particular test, the difference between those colors becomes very important. We used color theory to manipulate the colors but make sure that they were recognisable. We created an integrated system of colorful illustrations that changed with different product assays.
