Challenge

Although Skyservice is the industry leader in Canada, their brand identity was dated and no longer reflected their current position in the marketplace. In addition, usage of the brand was inconsistent. Ryse was tasked with initiating a brand refresh, exploring various refinement options for the logo and recommending opportunities to enhance various marketing and brand collateral.

Solution

Leveraging the existing Skyservice logo, we elevated the brand by strategically evolving their identity with updates to typography, colours and graphic cues. These were explored to enhance and provide uniformity across the board. An ‘S’ (airflow) graphic, based on the logo composition, was created as a visual cue to add movement, continuity, and bring life to the brand.

The enhanced brand identity was used and executed across various marketing materials including brochures, print and digital ads, banners, sell sheets, apparel/premiums, signage and even a large wall mural in the lobby of their main FBO.

Results

Since the launch of the revised branding, awareness amongst the target audience has greatly increased. The update to the brand and its marketing communications elements helped support the elevated nature of the brand’s offering, while aligning with the expectations of their clientele, allowing Skyservice to command a premium for their first-class services.
