Percept were engaged for this Australian franchise branding project. Incorporating brand naming and brand positioning for the mobile mechanic company, including vehicle signage and uniforms, in order for their Sydney business to grow as a franchise model.
To create franchise branding, including naming, brand positioning and full roll-out for a mobile mechanic company that began in Sydney, Australia. The company naming, franchise branding, vehicle signage and uniforms were to appeal to existing customers, potential new customers and quality mechanics to join the business as the business model relaunched as an Australian franchise.
Percept Brand Design felt it was important for the franchise branding to have a strong personality to ensure it stands out from the crowd. The brand positioning strategy was to establish the new franchise as a real, relevant and capable company that prides itself on a reputation of high quality service solutions and customer satisfaction.
We created a dynamic and engaging franchise branding for Blue Toro, beginning with the brand naming process. The reference to Blue is to reinforce the equity in their existing colour palette which the business was attached to. The word Toro (Spanish for bull) makes a personal connection to the owner’s heritage. The custom illustration of the bull, combined with the tagline ‘Your Car. Our Passion’ makes a visual impact that is memorable, emotional and powerful.
The roll-out for this franchise branding project, extended to marketing collateral, vehicle signage, uniforms, video animation and extensive brand guidelines for use in all forms of graphic design for their growing franchise brand.
Since the development of the initial franchise branding, Blue Toro has built its franchise opportunities throughout Australia and New Zealand and extended their branding into other related areas such as mobile truck and racing mechanics, as well as racing sponsorship, which has also required new graphic design briefs for us to work on, such as vehicle signage.
