TACTICS

AT&T Tower, the iconic skyscraper that stands in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, renovated their interior environment and added new amenities for the tenants of the building. The Tower’s management group, Ryan Companies, hired us to evolve the property’s brand from their current identity to one that better represents the unique personality of the building, and also differentiated the Tower’s brand from the highly recognized AT&T corporate brand. The goal was to create a refreshed brand for a building that people could identify with and want to be part of, resulting in both attracting and retaining tenants.

OBJECTIVE

LOGO REDESIGN: The Tower’s new logo design reflects the crown of the building in an abstract, modern and confident way. The interwoven angles were inspired by the unique architectural building fixtures and the energy of the people that work in and move through the spaces. With the new brand foundation in place, sales materials and wayfinding signage for the physical environment were created to support the launch of the new AT&T Tower brand identity.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Supportive graphics help tell the story of the active culture in the central hub of downtown Minneapolis.

We love it so much, truly brilliant work!
