APPROACH

breakthrough simplicity

Enlisted envisioned an extensible, differentiated lifestyle brand. Supported by research and a careful review of consumer needs, we developed brand positioning grounded in the concept of freedom. Brand naming, messaging, and visual assets were developed to support and convey the joy of a seamless user experience and the ability to connect effortlessly throughout the home. 

To convey ease of use, the brand name Velop and tagline 'Wi-Fi That Sets You Free' were established as keystones. The brand's high-level messaging and iconography are clear and accessible in their presentation of common use case scenarios.

A unique typographic treatment for the brand ensures that it lives as part of the Linksys family and as a standalone mark.

freedom of expression

The brand visuals and packaging system establish a strong shelf presence and introduce organic vitality and simplicity to a cluttered category. Enlisted's expressive watercolor approach illustrates connectivity and breaking free of walled confines. 

 

RESULTS 

seamless launch

Velop launched January 2017. After completing all packaging files, Enlisted delivered a final kit of guidelines and visual assets to support the development of launch materials for CES 2017.
