Understanding the audience

We begin executing a discovery session to understand the primary audience for our client. We identify that most competitors use boring photography, business practices are done in boring offices, and people wear suits. To stick out, we must look in a different direction.

During one conversation with the founder, he says: “I practice outdoor activities for fun, and I also meet new people.” It was this phrase that served as our new target audience.

Defining the brand

Through a series of exercises in the strategy session, we were able to extract and refine the key pillars of the brand. This defined the brand’s personality.

Tri-Mountain provides financial goals to multicultural adventurous people.

Branding

Behind every logo, there is a reason for WHY that nobody knows. The Tri-Mountain Financial Group logo icon represents core values that align with their audience, stability, motion, and achievement.
