The founders of Build Asset Management left their careers in corporate leadership to start a company with an aim to help people build a better future.

We worked directly with the founders to develop a robust strategy for the product rollout. The branding goals were twofold: (1) create an identity that reinforced a positive, hopeful, empathy-driven message, and (2) craft a visual and written language that established trust and confidence with future partners.

01 — Logo and Icon System Design

We were very intentional to help convey ‘growth’ and ‘building’ in a concise manner. This was accomplished through minimal shapes in the iconography that could be interpreted as a growth chart, building, or window being revealed.

02 – Brand Guidelines – We chose a bold color palette to emphasize prosperity and vibrancy to pair with the simplicity of the icon geometry, creating an elegant system that seamlessly translates to further brand extensions.

03 – Introduction Video – Capturing ‘moving portraits’ of a wide range of talent utilizing high speed videography was key in connecting with the target demo in a way that felt authentic and truthful.

04 —Designed to grow

When we began the project, one immediate challenge was building a website meant for products when products weren’t yet available. This led us to a content strategy based on a multi-phase launch, first addressing the need of getting a site up to establish the brand. Then, as products became available, we could shift focus and build upon the existing foundation.

05 — Tagline

One of the key elements of the brand launch was to integrate the unique URL getbuilding.com. The power of this was it was both memorable, and a call to action. We recommended elevating the “Get Building" tagline to leverage memorability around the brand, and using it as the primary CTA.
