Re-branding a city is like launching a product that people think they already know about. While Bellevue, Washington, has undergone extensive growth in the past 10 years, people still incorrectly thought of Bellevue as a small, somewhat sleepy city. This misperception completely disregards the position of Bellevue as a high-end, high tech and retail hub that’s added an abundance of new retail, restaurant and entertainment options. Plus, Bellevue features lower crime rates, cleaner streets and lower hotel rates than Seattle. GreenRubino was tasked with doing in-depth research and reshaping the awareness of Bellevue, Washington. Our Brand Strategy Platform clearly differentiated Bellevue from neighboring Seattle and portrayed it as a launching point for countless activities. The bold, new creative direction showcased Bellevue’s benefits and its vibrant personality. Deliverables included a new logo, visual identity, brand guidelines and an award-winning marketing program.
