brightHouse was founded by joey reiman in 1995 and coined the "home of purpose." through research and creative collaboration brighthouse found purpose for many fortune 500 companies. these projects often included strategy for change management, purpose films, and other design assets to help usher in the company’s newly found purpose.
when brightHouse was acquired by boston consulting group in 2015 there were several identities that did not represent a cohesive brand. by leveraging the current designs, the brand identity was given an update. consistency across digital and print media was key in the success of the brand.
brighthouse, the home of purpose, consults companies on ways to discover a purpose in what they do. the strategy team would present their ideas and findings to clients in 4 phases known as the core brighthouse approach. investigation, incubation, illumination, and integration.the strategists consisted of thinkers and needed the tools to asset in creating powerpoint presentations that were equally brand consistent as they were stunning. to do this a system was created that would help to alleviate the need for design support at each of the 4 phases. the system consisted of a standard template, a widescreen template, an icon kit, stock photos, client logos, and a library of design layouts and templates.
for the cover of the brightHouse presentations an illustration was used that told a story that brighthouse founder, Joey Reiman, would frequently tell of the founding and purpose of brighthouse. the ship represents the journey to purpose that brighthouse embarks on with its clients. the city scene was to reflect the growth and brighthouse's own journey and the many buildings homes they once had. the castle is “camelot” which, according to mr. reiman, metaphorically is the end result that every company strives to become. the mountains are the hurtles that are along the way from the beginning of a client project to the end. the house is meant to be the brighthouse team with rays radiating out to show a brain that is exploding with thoughts, ideas, and stories.
