Trilith: A New Brand is Born

Company GOAL:

Pinewood Atlanta Studios came to Clarity for a total rebrand to Trilith Studios… then COVID struck and all production was halted

Clarity’s Challenge:

Rebrand a major studio in the middle of a pandemic, positioning it as a leader and educator on bringing production back safely.

ABOUT

Pinewood Atlanta Studios (now Trilith Studios) is world famous for its long legacy of churning out blockbuster hits through collaborations with the likes of Disney, Marvel, Sony and Warner Bros. In 2019, the company was poised for not just a rebrand but a reimagining, branding the company to Trilith Studios and reinventing the company as not just a production studio but a new live/work model encompassing a fully integrated production armed with its own IP as well as a walkable residential community for a new generation of creatives, entrepreneurs and storytellers – not something that had been done at this scale.

With a timing of June 2020 to unveil the new brand, Clarity began placing a series of agenda-setting features in industry trades and business, tech and real estate media introducing this new expansive live/work studio environment for creatives, while retaining the Studio’s impressive stature as a movie-making hub rivaling the biggest in the world.

Then, with the onset of COVID-19 in March 2020, production is halted across the industry and Trilith faced both a need to align on best practices and protocols to restart filming, without losing momentum of the business while the rebrand was pushed off. 

Clarity responded quickly, aggressively promoting CEO, Frank Patterson as an authority on the effects of the pandemic on production, pointing to the studio’s own stringent COVID protocols as a gold standard for the industry, announcing state of the art testing protocols and plans to reopen and restart movie and TV production, cementing their position as an industry leader and giving them tremendous visibility and credibility ahead of the delayed rebrand, which took place in October 2020.

Visto

Company Goal: Gain recognition as a forward-thinking ad tech company following a major rebrand and repositioning

Clarity’s Challenge: Reposition Visto (formerly Collective) and showcase the company’s platform as the solution to issues of transparency in digital advertising

Visto came to Clarity following bold changes within the company that was still, at the time, known as Collective. With the knowledge that transparency in digital advertising would soon be an industry rallying cry, CEO Kerry Bianchi steered the company in a new direction and turned the 11-year-old ad network media business into a forward-thinking technology company committed to bringing simplicity, transparency, and efficiency to digital marketing.

Clarity worked in partnership with the internal marketing team to completely redefine the company and develop new messaging that would reflect the value proposition of their platform, the Visto™ Enterprise Ad Hub.

Both before and after introducing the vendor-neutral platform to the ad and marketing tech community, Clarity played a vital role as trusted advisor, providing counsel on both internal and external communications following the rebrand.

Clarity executed a highly content-driven campaign for the company while also putting the dynamic CEO in the spotlight. Through bylined articles, reports, white papers and speaking engagements, we successfully established the company as one leading the charge of transparency in programmatic advertising.

VRBex

Company Goal: To bring credibility, transparency and trust to the crypto space

Clarity’s Challenge: Build VRBex’s visibility and establish its reputation as a trustworthy, US-regulated financial services brand

VRBex, a US-regulated cryptocurrency financial services brand, enlisted Clarity to build its reputation as a company bringing credibility, transparency and trust to the crypto space. The campaign needed to increase brand visibility beyond the sphere of crypto, with reaching potential partners and investors being a key objective.

Prior to the launch of VRBex, Clarity rolled out a program grounded in thought leadership, developing and placing VRBex-bylined articles that presented unique points of view in stark contrast to existing narratives in the space. To further build credibility, the team positioned Founder and CEO Gene Grant as the most knowledgeable resource on the regulation of crypto and security tokens through briefings with high-profile trade media and influencers.

At the time of launch and pre-sale, Clarity leveraged the newly-elevated profile for an aggressive media relations campaign, for which the ability to provide industry insights and offer substantive commentary on breaking news stories served to amplify results.
