We rebranded and repositioned
work world as an essential destination for essential workers.
Realizing a new brand vision
The new owners of Work World, a head-to-toe workwear retailer, asked Vehicle to redesign the brand to be more contemporary, to help reposition the brand to be more relevant, and to help create a unifying look and feel for their online and in-store presence.
Brand positioning in a word: Respect
Two key insights from our target research guided our approach to positioning: Many blue collar workers often felt disrespected and most of them have little time to shop after work or on weekends. These insights informed the brand positioning of honoring and respecting those devoted to an honest, hard day’s work. From respecting their time by making products easy to find quickly in-store and online, to honoring their professions in heroic brand imagery, we've made it clear that Work World exists to support them.
Essential tools for brand building
We provided the Work World team with a set of tools to inform ongoing brand development as they expand their reach. The brand narrative, brand voice, and brand positioning are all articulated in a guideline designed for internal and external reference to keep all communications on brand. The graphic and imagery guidelines help ensure the brand is represented cohesively and consistently across all channels.
