Echo is the newest of the French smartphone makers. The brand belongs to Modelabs, a historic distributor in the phone market, which had a range of entry-level phones, a segment in which it enjoys a leading position in France. The new range of four smartphones, launched in June 2016, concentrates on entry-level and midrange products, with a positioning focused on pragmatism : to offer qualitative smartphones and smart design, with no frills; an ally of everyday life. A range of devises jam-packed with useful technology.
The creative team were asked to facilitate this bold launch by bringing a substantive work on the brand positioning, visual identity and branding. They have overhauled the project’s foundations to achieve central conclusions: the brand must present itself with simplicity, honesty and strength. It must get out of low-cost codes. It must reflect uncompromised quality standards while making them accessible to all. It demystifies the possession of quality technological objects.
Brand Brothers has helped the brand to find its place an already crowded market. The studio has created the brand positioning and visual identity, all visual standards, the packaging design, the website (design and development) and the artistic direction of visual products. The logo is the backbone of this new promise: this original type design tells the echo and resonance, and opens a creative territory without boundaries that deploys on the whole universe of the brand.
