An Unstoppable Edge - Carrier employee in factory.

An Unstoppable Edge

Having recently spun off from United Technologies and looking forward to the future, Carrier set its sights on an organizational shift toward service. We helped the world leader transform its culture and customer experience by developing, branding, and launching BluEdge — a disruptive new service offering for all of their distinct business units.

Scope of Work

From defining and naming both the brand and its service tiers to creating logos, guidelines, and launch assets, it was our job to build and introduce BluEdge’s complete brand identity. And, just as importantly, create a serious buzz that would excite both internal stakeholders and external customers.

First, we had to name it.

Agency-wide ideating and refining identified three larger buckets under which most names fit: confidence, technology, and Carrier's heritage. We landed on BluEdge because it communicates the dedication of Carrier's service teams being on the front edge of service, their cutting-edge technology, and alludes to the blue in Carrier's globally-recognized logo.

Developing the Logo

Working under a tight deadline, we rapidly explored directions, created options, and refined the final logo.

Communicating the Tiered System

Central to the BluEdge service platform is a tiered service model that allows customers to select the level of service that best fits their needs. Each tier needed its own name and iconography to communicate its unique value. Brainstorming teams reformed and we ideated names once again, selecting those that resonated most.

Brand Guidelines

To present a consistent and compelling brand identity, we created brand guidelines for all BluEdge service platform communicators. These guidelines cover most scenarios and will help differentiate and define the BluEdge service platform as a leading global service brand.

Launch Video

Just in time for launch, we assembled an awesome crew and created a breakthrough video to introduce BluEdge to the world. Its “Unstoppable” messaging communicates that Carrier's commitment to their products doesn't stop once they leave the factory floor.
