Allegory Studios and NBS are Recognized Among the 2012 REBRAND 100® Global Awards Winners

March 05, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Saratoga Springs, NY …. Allegory Studios and their client NBS were named one of the world's most effective rebrands in the eighth annual REBRAND 100® Global Awards. This award is the highest recognition for excellence in brand repositioning, and is the first and most-respected global program of its kind. Allegory's branding process effectively repositioned NBS to demonstrate the company's impact on people and the community, which resulted in NBS's reclaiming their position as a leading consultant in the special taxing district industry. This is the third year Allegory has been recognized in the REBRAND Competition.

Each year, an international and multidisciplinary mix of industry experts convenes to jury the competition. They consider "before" and "after" representations of brand transformations with written summaries and supporting elements that showcase integration of social media and mobile engagement. "Many projects had big ideas expressed elegantly through all methods of engagement-language, visuals, sound, etc." said Shashi Caan, Founding Principal, The Collective US and UK and 2012 juror.

A small consulting firm or brand had as much opportunity to be selected as did global organizations with exponentially greater budgets since the name and size of the brand strategists are hidden from jurors during their review process. Emphasis was on executed strategy that made an emotional connection and met the stated objectives and needs of the identified target audience and prospects.

The 2012 winners represented over 28 countries and 34 industries. They ranged from One Foundation to Global Ethics Ltd, Pfizer, National Music Centre of Canada, Merck Millipore, and Cisco. In addition to in-house teams, small agencies, and representatives of multinational corporations and non-profits, competing firms included Interbrand, SNK, Lippincott, Siegel+Gale, and Brandient.
