A Cincinnati based Registered Investment Advisor needed to create a new brand and establish both market and technology independence as they separated from their custodian. The platforms needed to be state-of-the-art and the brand would be used to create a dominant competitor in the RIA industry. Optimizing business processes and operational efficiencies were a requirement to allow for rapid transition of accounts with minimal impact to clients.

By maintaining a cohesive link to the owner’s personality and rooted culture, the newly developed brand was able to seamlessly transition clients and firmly plant establish itself as a compelling financial enterprise.

9258’s core color scheme consisted of two primary colors and a few secondary colors. When possible, we used a copper foil to elevate the brand’s print materials.
