Client Spotlight : Doug's Auto Tune & Repair

Doug's Auto Tune & Repair

Doug's Auto Tune & Repair has been providing honest, reliable automobile service on the Eastside since 1981. Unsatisfied with their existing web presence and wanting to revitalize their identity, Doug's approached Reveal for a complete brand update.

The challenge:
1. Create new branding to refresh and update an established local business
2. Design and build a unique website to gain visibility in a highly competitive field
3. Establish trust with potential customers in an industry with a reputation for dishonesty

The result:
After meeting with the company owners to determine their objectives, we began by giving the Doug's Auto Tune logo and store signage a clean, new look. Moving to the website, our research showed that Doug's had a very strong online presence with consumer review sites. We took advantage of this asset by rotating actual customer reviews on each page of the new site, with source links to provide authenticity. Overall, the new branding and website reinforce the quality of service and trust that Doug's has been providing customers for over 30 years.

Client Spotlight : Home Benefit Network

Home Benefit Network (HBN) is a companion to traditional employee assistance programs, providing access to local experts, valuable discounts and resources to help make everyday life easier.

The challenge:
1. Create a suite of materials to help HBN introduce their services to both potential partner organizations, and the employees of these partners
2. Reinforce the HBN brand promise of easy-to-use, free services with real value to homeowners
3. Address two very different target audiences with an eye on budget constraints

The result:
Working closely with HBN leadership, we determined that two categories of marketing materials were needed. One to encourage companies to incorporate HBN services into their employee benefits program, and another to introduce employees to their new benefits. We designed layouts that could be repurposed for both categories, using distinct photography to differentiate the two targets. The resulting collateral makes it easy for HBN employees to distinguish the programs, and provides a seamless transition between corporate and employee marketing.
