The Objective

The primary objective of the branding initiative was to define a brand platform (mission, value proposition, promise and attributes) and brand architecture strategy that would differentiate each of the affiliated companies under a common vision umbrella.

SKYESTONE

WORKS

The Challenge

Taylor Morrison is one of the largest homebuilders in the US. They operate in 19 markets in 11 states. Their vision was to develop a unique 55+ lifestyle community brand that could be replicated across several markets. The principal challenge was to redefine traditional retirement into a brand that would resonate with a 55+ audience who would otherwise never consider retirement living.

The Objective

The objective was to develop a brand positioning strategy and branding system that would be prototyped in a new-build community in the Denver market. The goal was to test the concept in the form of product and brand that would appeal to the 55+ audience. The cornerstone of the branding system was the development of a new name and identity reflecting authentic Colorado living and the idea of “being yourself, not your age.

Scope of Work

  • Consumer Research
  • Brand Strategy & Positioning
  • Name Development
  • Identity System Development
  • Brand Messaging
  • Brand Standards
  • Brand Launch Campaign

The Results

In-depth consumer research and the development of an audience segmentation strategy provided a clear blueprint for what works for this audience. This would enable and position Taylor Morrison to roll the brand out into targeted markets to effectively compete against age-restricted category leaders like Del Webb. Skyestone has the potential of a brand that reflects the Independent Spirit and Love of the Great Outdoors to 55+ audience.
