Branding the world’s first Autofocal brand, Morrow
Branding design for an ambitious start-up
Morrow is the challenger brand that’s set to disrupt the eyewear market globally. Its revolutionary glasses solve the problem that people over the age of 45 often face; the ability to see both near and far. A single pair of Morrow glasses allows its wearer to see at every focal range – at the click of a button.
We met with the brand’s Belgian Founders and learned about their ambition to revolutionise the world of prescription glasses. They had founded a unique patented technology; had early prototypes and investors on board. What they needed was a way to bring their innovative brand proposition to market, appeal to customers and drive eye examinations in order to scale the business. For that they wanted to work with a trusted partner with expertise in both branding design and retail customer experience design – that’s where we come in.
A customer-centric brand strategy & positioning
Working directly with the brand’s Founders, we developed Morrow’s end-to-end branding and communications strategy. Encompassing brand strategy and positioning; creative visual identity design, new product development, online digital brand experience, launch campaign activations and all content creation across every channel to launch Morrow to market.
Everything part of our branding design was inspired by the language of vision. Using findings from Morrow’s neuromarketing study, our refined visual identity system was created to appeal directly to the over 45s' desire for visual independence and individuality.
“From the outset of Morrow’s brand journey Checkland Kindleysides lived and breathed our brand, our product and our ambition to improve the world’s vision in a click.”
Pieter Hertecant, Chief Marketing Officer Morrow
A sophisticated digital brand experience
A big part of bringing this startup brand to market was designing their consumer facing brand experience. For this, we custom-built a bespoke platform from the ground up. Designing an innovative online UX experience and direct-to-consumer purchase journey alongside a brand communications toolkit which allows consumers to try the lenses for themselves before purchase using both website and home visits.
A brand launch campaign with eye-raising results
Within the 1st two days of launch and with no media spend - over 200 people completed the self-assessment. Within one week of launch Morrow received bookings for the following six weeks and at going on to be fully booked up to 7 weeks in advance. Beyond the launch, the success of the branding design, new category positioning and launch campaign, Morrow went on to secure 10Million EURO's in additional funding and were named in the Top 100 Innovative companies in the world. Not only that our visual identity design agency won 'Best Branding Design' in the Creativepool Annual 2022.
