I worked with Ascendis on our rebranding strategy at Solotech. From research and positioning strategy, to ideation and visual creation, our journey culminated with the launch of a renewed and dynamic brand. Ascendis was "simply spectacular", to use the slogan that now accompanies Solotech around the world.
