Naming

A naming project forms the foundation for your brand’s or product’s identity. A strategically defined name creates alignment across your organization—making a positive first impression with the audiences you want to reach.

 

If you’re faced with:

  • Creating a commercial product based on your open source project
  • Giving your funded startup a name that tells your story
  • An current name that doesn’t differentiate you from competitors
  • Bringing a newly acquired brand into your organization
  • Misalignment across your product portfolio

This project can help:

  • Reinforce your brand story with a name to match your purpose
  • Guide future naming decisions as products are created or acquisitions are made
  • Reinforce your brand story with a name to match your purpose
  • Alleviate confusion between your organization and the competition

Shared process

Our open source experience extends well beyond our knowledge of software. Openness, collaboration, and partnership are fundamental aspects of every project and client engagements.

We work together closely, operating as an extension of your team, with a proven approach that combines your organizational expertise with our fresh perspective—creating stronger organizations and teams as a result.

Deliverables

By the end of our naming process, you and your team will be left with a strategically aligned name that represents what you want your core customers to know about your company or product. Specific deliverables include:

  • The name itself
  • Visual explorations and prototypes (t-shirt mockups, sample homepage, etc.)
  • Preliminary brand and trademark viability analysis*
