Though leading a start-up in its earliest days, co-Founders Jonathan Carson and Rameez Tase have been focused on building a company that could scale very large and have real staying power. They had the killer app, the growth plan dialed in, and were assembling a league of extraordinary gentlefolk. They just needed a brand that reflected their ambition and quality.
The new Antenna brand speaks with the kind of quiet authority anyone who works with them will instantly recognize. Their logo emanates an iconic stature that the young company—already a leader in its industry—naturally inhabits. And nestled in the heart of the identity is a call out to Antenna’s media heritage—the signature yellow drawn from the yellow brick road in the Wizard of Oz, an important technological milestone in cultural history.
We like to say that “the workshop is our interface.” So the process with Antenna was incredibly collaborative. Which proved to be as valuable for Antenna as it was for us—the branding process let Antenna team members talk to one another about purpose and ambition when they might otherwise have gotten the chance. And that was indispensable for a fast-growing start up.
Rameez recently said to us, “You know, I was skeptical at first. But after going through this process with you, ‘focus on your brand’ is one of the top three things I would tell other founders to do.” That filled our cups, for sure.
