Inflow: Following the Flow of a Brand
We’ve worked with seOverflow for many years, and have watched them go from a small SEO company that specialized in white label services to a full-fledged inbound marketing firm. As their company grew, their brand focus evolved. Our job was to address their need for re-branding to accurately reflect their updated services, modern methods, and years of industry experience. To accomplish this, we sat down with company members to develop a new brand and a new name: Inflow.
The Solution: Flowing from Old to New
The first step to creating a new brand was an in-depth discovery phase, which we used to asses the strengths of the old brand, solidify a new brand backbone, and determine the needs of the new brand: a name, logo, and full image re-work. As seOverflow already had a strong brand identity and a loyal client base; the new identity needed to tie into the old brand and still reflect the company’s modern outlook.
After several brainstorming sessions, we decided to keep the word “flow” from the original name. We then added “In” to represent both the inbound marketing that the company specializes in, and the steady inflow of site traffic, conversions, and revenue that their services provide. From there, we created a tagline and logo to solidify their new identity.
Part of the inspiration for the rebranding came from the wide variety of services that Inflow offers. From SEO to conversion optimization, we needed a way tie together every part of the company’s brand. We created a set of branded icons for each of Inflow’s service offerings to do just that.
The end result of our efforts is a cohesive new brand that shows the company’s strengths, reflects their history, and prepares Inflow for the future of inbound marketing.
