Behind Our Brand Reinvention

our brand was like an old hairstyle - past its best by date
It quickly became clear that our name, much like my hairdo from the 90’s, was far past its best by date. It was time for a makeover.

You know that feeling after a day at the fair – you’ve been eating too much cotton candy, and maybe taken one too many rides on the Enterprise. You’re wrung out, your head is spinning, and you’ve completely lost all pretence at maintaining your equilibrium. Well the last 18 months have had the same effect on business as an overzealous day at the fair. What worked in 2019 was based on assumptions that simply are no longer true today – everything you thought you knew has been turned upside down. For us, that included our brand.

You can’t sail into the future while gripping tightly to the past. Nor can we. Our team has had to reimagine everything we thought we knew about achieving business growth for our clients. We’ve had to reimagine our entire business model – as have many of you.

So this summer we decided to turn the microscope on ourselves with a little help from our good friends over at Pear Advertising & Design.

It quickly became clear that the name Kinetix Media Communications, much like my hairdo from the 90’s, was no longer a fit. It was time for a major change.

I asked for a name as unexpected and memorable as the work we deliver for you. A name that would at once communicate our unique strengths and our collaborative approach. It had to be impactful, because our work is impactful. And it had to be fun, because we all need to smile more.

Oh! And short. The name had to be short and easy to spell. That was my ‘diva’ request. Why? After 20+ years of  answering the question “what’s your email?” with “p.s.K-as-in-kitten.a.p-as in Paula.e.r @ – all one word – dot com” can you blame me?! And yes, that really was the sum total of the brief.

So, drumroll… please join me in celebrating our new name and our new brand.

Dolphins are most commonly known for their intuition, intelligence, and ability to communicate well. They are also very community-focused, strategic, and compassionate.
