Chicago Lock Company - Case History

This manufacturer of thousands of different products was producing just one large catalog. Marketing needed focus, organization and consistency. We built a brand that segmented their markets and categorized their locks based on the level of security provided. We created one consistent brand through the tagline: The Specific Lock Needed for Precisely the Security Required. This worked well. It appealed to OEMs - they knew they could get precisely the look needed for their design. It appealed to Vending Operators - they could get the specific lock needed to secure different locations.

This brand was integrated into all marketing communications.
