Blackline GPS – Rebrand
Blackline GPS was a single product, B2C company that transitioned to a B2B and publicly traded corporation with multi-focused products. The wireless location tech company offers tracking solutions for large organizations and government in health and safety, covert surveillance, and loss prevention.
Blackline wanted to create two divisions to service different audiences; health & safety and business and law enforcement. They also needed to provide leadership with the ability to easily present the company as a whole to investors, potential partnership, and expand into other countries.
The original Blackline GPS name and logo was kept intact, although we revamped the colours (from soft light blue and grey) and then created two sister-logos and a colour palette for the family of identities (yellow, red, blue, and black). From there, branded marketing assets were designed specifically for the corporate brand and its two division

…and much more
I recommend Tara to any organization. She has an excellent understanding of branding and was able to help Blackline extend its brand awareness and profit growth through a complex corporate rebrand that included the scalability and execution of commercializing 13 new product solutions—each requiring a complete suite of logos and various print and digital materials. The quality and sophistication of our communications and brand is what made the difference for the company.
