Behind any successful brand is a strong brand strategy that guides future marketing activities. The team at Active Rehab discovered this while undertaking a complete rebrand.
Active Rehabilitation Equipment, or Active Rehab for short, is a family owned business that has been operating in the rehabilitation equipment industry for over 15 years. The team specialises in custom wheelchairs, pediatric products, hospital beds and floor and ceiling hoists, just to name a few.
Initially, Active Rehab had contacted us about a new website and some digital marketing. As the conversation got flowing we learnt they were in the process of refreshing their branding and incorporating a sub-brand to highlight their pediatric products.
After a few attempts internally they knew they wanted to modernise their brand, but weren’t exactly sure how to make it all work together. Enter Creative Revolution.
Active Rehab fallen into the trap of over-branding, which you may be surprised to learn is actually quite common. Through the brand strategy process we determined that they didn’t need a separate brand for their pediatric products. Instead the solution was one simple brand that could embody all facets of the business.
And so the rebranding process began.
In order to complete a rebrand, you need to know exactly what you want it to achieve, how you want your business to be perceived, and how this will be reflected in marketing material. To begin with we completed a brand strategy, which involved a complete audit of Active Rehab’s current branding as well as a plan for future brand architecture, brand personality and brand positioning. This process allowed us to develop a plan that aligned the brand with business values, goals, and the products Active Rehab offer.
Once we had a clear direction of where we were heading, it was time to set sail. The next stage was the design of a new logo and development of a brand style guide. A consistent brand style guide was critical to highlight logo usage rules, colour palettes and typography. All of which could be applied to all future marketing efforts. To solve the issue of incorporating both adult and pediatric products into one brand, two colour palettes were created with the pediatric colours being a brighter, more vibrant version of the adult colours.
By undertaking a full rebrand, Active Rehab now has a simple and elegant brand that combines all facets of their business without the need of a sub-brand. Previously they required two separate websites, one for pediatric products and one for adult products. The rebrand has lead to the development of a new website that encompasses all products, making management of the site much more streamlined.
The development of the brand style guide has also allowed for a good quality, single style design to be applied across all marketing material from online advertising to signage and even stationery.
Active Rehab is proof that a successful brand is built on a detailed strategy and executed through a consistent style guide.

Lead Advisory Group’s website looked dated, even though it was recently built. The user experience was substandard, with a complicated navigation set-up and difficult to read colour scheme. We stepped in to save it, creating a totally new design that combines form with functionality.View Project

The new owners of Weirdy Beardy approached us to oversee their social media, as previous efforts had not fully realised the full potential of social platforms to showcase the uniqueness of the Weirdy Beardy brand to a wider audience. This process also involved a product photoshoot to showcase the Weirdy Beardy range, creating a look and feel that was unique to the brand.View Project
