Two-Year Rebranding Project

AMA’s oldest chapter creates new identity to better reflect status as Midwest’s premier marketing association

Chicago – April 8, 2014 –
The Chicago chapter of the American Marketing Association today announced the completion of a two-year rebranding project designed to better reflect today’s marketing landscape and Chicago AMA (http://chicagoama.org/)’s position as the premier marketing association in the Midwest.

The project, coordinated by an elite team of top Chicago marketers, produced an entirely new identity and dynamic website for the 75-year-old, 1,100-member professional association.

“As one of the largest chapters of the AMA, it was important that we reconstruct our brand to truly showcase Chicago as a marketing powerhouse and represent the extraordinary caliber of our membership – from entry-level marketing professionals to leading corporate CMOs,” said Darcy Schuller, president elect of the Chicago AMA and leader of the project. “We wanted the emphasis of our new identity to be on our connectedness, our diverse audience, and the strong heritage of marketing in Chicago.”

The first phase of the project, executed by the Chicago AMA leadership team, included extensive research studies and surveys to provide insight into how the chapter was perceived and how it could improve, ultimately leading to a new value proposition and messaging.

The second phase, coordinated by Chicago-based experiential marketing firm All Terrain (http://www.allterrain.net/), focused on aligning Chicago AMA’s visual identity to the new value proposition and messaging.

“Whatever we created needed to last long term, meaning that it couldn’t be trendy or dated, and it needed to work across multiple platforms, especially on the digital side,” said Eric Mortensen, creative director for All Terrain. “We wanted to make sure we were systematic and avoided design clichés. The end result was something we were quite pleased with.”

Following the new identity development, the Chicago AMA also launched an entirely new, dynamic website (http://chicagoama.org/about-chicago-ama/) designed and built by website partner, Mindful Mix (http://mindfulmix.com/).

“The end result of this large-scale project is really quite special,” Ms. Schuller said. “Our value proposition really speaks to where we provide value to the marketing community. Our supporting messages convey the true strengths of our organization, and our new logo is a bright, colorful, dynamic representation of who we are.”
