Pilot Enters 20th Year as Leader in Brand Transformation
TORONTO, CANADA – NOVEMBER 24 – Pilot PMR, an industry-leading consultancy specializing in reimagining and revitalizing brands, today released its own rebrand as it enters its 20th year focused on innovation and client service. The Pilot rebrand includes a new logo, visual identity, and website that offers thought leadership articles, case studies, client interviews, and testimonials.
“Our new brand strategy and identity is more than a symbol of our evolution over the past 20 years,” said David Doze, Founder and CEO. “It is our team walking the talk. Now is the time for leading companies to invest in their brands. Tough markets are when great organizations achieve next level success by reinforcing value, crystalizing competitive advantage, and demonstrating confidence in their offering. We know we have a direct impact on our clients’ success and we want others to see and feel that reality in everything we do.”
The brand transformation was done in-house, with the identity design led by Pilot’s Senior Designer Nataliia Nagovitsyna.
“Our new identity represents all the things we believe in; the combinations of humanity and precision, imagination and rigour that power our work. It reflects our mission to create things that deliver real value: ideas worth your time. We stand for brands that see things differently and want to make a real impact in the world.”
Underpinning this work is Pilot’s long held belief that every organization should be brand-led and market-informed. “Brand-led” means having a viewpoint, while “market-informed” means this viewpoint should be shaped by market understanding.
Since its founding in 2004, Pilot has partnered with more than 200 clients on strategic brand positioning, compelling narratives, visual identity design, and customer engagement strategies. Pilot has worked with leaders in innovation such as the Creative Destruction Lab, Vector Institute, MaRS, Mitacs, and Dialogue, as well as impact organizations like the Canadian Children’s Literacy Foundation, Oceana Canada, and Western University.
