LEK: Insights With Impact

We worked closely with global management consulting firm L.E.K. for over 12 months to develop their strategic brand framework, which including the definition of their core purpose and creative proposition. This framework then gave us the rationale to re design of a simplified, contemporary, sophisticated brand expression (and we didn’t have to change the logo!)

L.E.K.: Insight with impact

 

We defined the purpose and brand identity that helped this leading global consulting firm to understand what makes them different and special

Background

Expression

This idea found its expression in the promise that L.E.K. ‘Deliver Insights with impact through confident, informed decision-making”

To articulate the idea of Insights with Impact, we created a Brand Expression that told the stories of people who’d created those insights. An updated Brand Visual Identity led to stylish and effective communications that challenged the staid conventions of the consulting industry - an organization that is approachable, authentic, clear and purposeful. What’s more, the new strapline - Insights@Work - is unmistakably L.E.K.

Activation

From 2016, beginning with careers and recruitment communications, the new proposition and updated Brand Visual Identity was being implemented gradually across all offices globally.
