A chiselled new brand identity and communications design for Power Tools Plus, featuring a brand positioning strategy that put personality into their marketing.
Power Tools Plus (PTP) provide a wide range of high quality tools, fasteners, steel and rural and industrial supplies across Central NSW. With multiple stores that vary in offerings, concerns had been raised regarding the current lack of brand presence and coherence in addition to the company name feeling limiting as PTP offer more than just power tools.
With the goals for future expansion in mind, Percept were engaged to reposition the brand and create for them a new brand identity and communications design. It needed to be flexible enough to communicate their wide offerings and commitment to providing exceptional service, without sacrificing the personal engagement they currently have with their customers.
Percept conducted an in-depth workshop and review of all current PTP marketing collateral. From this assessment, a solid brand strategy was developed including a brand story, strategic brand positioning and consideration of their launch stages to ensure PTP customers and partner suppliers felt part of the journey.
Following the brand strategy, a new brand identity design was developed with the contemporary, crafted logotype encompassing PTP’s multifaceted approach.
Percept activated the ‘plus’ in the name, creating a flexible logo design that pairs well with the confident, bold colour palette, giving the brand standout amongst the crowd. Light-hearted copywriting, with a quirky tone of voice was also developed, playing on construction/tool related puns to capture the PTP essence – professionals that don’t take themselves too seriously. This deliberate tone of voice features heavily in all brand communications and is an extension of the company’s personality.
