The Bottom Line

David M. Hobson is an entrepreneur and motivator. He works at Foundr, a leading entrepreneur magazine.

 

During an intense week sprint, we branded DHM from the ground up—strategy, design, messaging and a crisp. To top it off, we produce an anthemic Logo Branding that is expressing his personality and values. A comprehensive and consistent brand that resonates with his followers and nurtures lasting relationships.

Strategy

The project was initiated after a brief conversation between TekDrive Creative’s ECD, Bonnin Gimenez and  David M Hobson . Together, they agreed there is a needed of series of video calls to  kick off discovery session.

It gets deeper. Lots of acronyms like SYOI (Say your own idea) and YBS (Your Brand Speaks) was used.

Eyes quickly began to glaze over. But, once I passed some of the design jargon I was able to surface key insights into the pain points of DHM Branding Process.

“His followers are great motivators, business-driven, entrepreneur… How do we appeal to them?”

Design

“We need to be more empathetic towards his followers,” says Creative Director, Bonnin Gimenez.

Having a lot of followers without a personal brand is like a known name in an unknown world.

This notion quickly formed into designs, visuals and messaging for the DHM brand and was applied across all key touchpoints including other social media and marketing collateral.
