Sapient has built multiple small companies during their 20 years of existence, organically, as a response to the specific needs of their clients. They ended up building one of the most powerful companies in the industry.
All these different companies under the Sapient umbrella had very different identities. We were required to create a common identity, but at the same time keep their individuality. We needed to create an identity system.
They all became divisions of the Sapient Group, deeply connected with the recognizable brand name. We also gave them an individual identity for their niches, so they can keep working independently. We also kept a common brand voice but made it specific to each little sector. This simplified both internal and external brand communication.
Defining the new brand identities also required new internal systems for managing communication, which brought much-needed clarity for employees. They now worked for the biggest name in the industry and this ends up building brand equity.
Sapient real-estate was the star company of the group because it had a great reputation and had managed to work with big clients over the years. This was the anchor point of the new brand strategy. At the same time, the existing Sapient reputation infused the smaller brands with trust, making them work much better independently.
For the Sapient Group this approach finally defined the size of the business, making a statement about who they are and positioning them in the industry.
The entire brand architecture and the flexible design system leaves room for additional brand extensions that can be created by the in house design team.
