The Problem

The LOUD team approached us with the core issue of their outdated website. While the site was out of date, a deeper dive into this issue made it clear that they had more than just a website problem- they had a positioning problem.

As their team grew and changed over the years, they never sat down to clearly define their magic: what they stand for, what makes them unique, how they talk about what they do, etc. If we wanted to truly solve the problem, we needed to start from the beginning.

Our Solution

We held a series of workshops with the LOUD team that walked them through the brand strategy process. In those sessions, we got deep into their purpose, mission, and vision. We defined their brand character and values, talked about their audience and what we can promise them, and ultimately created a unifying brand anthem that unites the team under a single, ownable statement: “We amplify value through purpose.”

With the verbal brand nailed down, it was time to tackle the visual brand - most notably, the logo and website. The original LOUD logo was modeled after a waveform you’d see on a soundboard. Cool idea, but very busy and not well-executed. In our new logo we switched the concept to a sound wave integrated with the “Startup Valley of Death” curve, which is a crucial concept in how LOUD works with its portfolio companies. We paired the new logo with a library of brand assets included a refined color palette, ownable patterns, and unique icons.

And finally, it was time to tackle the website. LOUD’s new website captures their updated brand character by reflecting the curiosity inherent in the way they work. They’re not afraid to explore new territories and push boundaries, but they’re also experienced and relational. Their new website feels edgy, but personable - and most importantly tells the story of LOUD in a way that speaks directly to their audiences.
