A BOLD NEW LOGO
Armor Holdings A + D, a company that provides protection to military personnel who find themselves “in harm’s way”– from armored vests and helmets to armored HUMVEES and helicopters – came to Signature with a complex branding assignment: the company had acquired number of brands, many enjoying high name awareness and preference, like Safariland and ABA, and they needed a unifying brand architecture to tie all of its products together.
Signature branded Armor Holdings under a bold new logo and with the tagline “Advancing Survivability.” We also recommended a step-by-step program for assimilating the new sub-brands. For catalog entries, for example, we used the sub-brand logo with a large Armor Holdings logo for a period of time, followed by an individualized approach for the transition of each sub-brand. Signature created a plan directed at both individual users as well as the government that used advertising, websites, and direct marketing at trade shows, meetings, and speaking engagements.
The umbrella architecture uniting all the disparate brands under the “advancing survivability” positioning made Armor a significant force in the defense category. In fact the overall brand proposition was so compelling, the company was sold for $4.5 Billion to BAE so it could round out its portfolio of defense products.
