Global genomics company rebrand from: WuxiNEXTCODE & Genomics Medicine Ireland
WuxiNEXTCODE and Genomics Medicine Ireland approached NameGirl for a new global brand name to help them formalize a restructuring to integrate their U.S., Ireland and Iceland operations and separate from WuXi NextCODE’s Shanghai operations. Headquartered in the US, this global genomics company is on an extraordinary mission to harness the power of genomic insights and AI to catalyze precision health and improve the quality of life for patients around the world. Their Cohorts Analytics Platform has been called, “The world’s leading platform for storing, sharing, and interpreting massive sets of genomic data,” by FastCompany.
- Global rebrand from M&A of multiple companies
- Name that works across multiple languages, countries and cultures
- Both D2C and B2B markets
- Global trademark availability
- Global domain availability
- Consensus building across three countries
We kicked off the project with a collaborative naming workshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts, spearheaded by Amy Swearingen, VP, Corporate Communications & Brand (who HQs in Ireland) and Cara Harrington, Director of Marketing Services. This brought together key stakeholders from multiple countries, including many of the internationally recognized and brilliant scientists whose research and discoveries have improved lives. It was a key step in the research and immersion of this project that enabled Kim to hear stories about the brand directly from key stakeholders.
From the workshop, NameGirl structured a Naming Brief with a comprehensive list of criteria. The marketing team and NameGirl iterated for weeks, brainstorming and giving feedback until we had distilled down all the requirements into a strategic shortlist of powerful, targeted names that told the story of the new rebrand, had passed preliminary global trademark screening and had smartly matching domains available.
NameGirl then performed deeper preliminary global trademark screening, and debriefed and introduced an IP attorney to finalize the naming process.
“Our new name, Genuity Science, better reflects the company’s structure, mission and strategic direction and signifies the ingenuity, insights and innovation of our approach,” said VP of Brand and Communications Amy Swearingen.
