Branding & Strategy

Happy Septic

Overview:

Mike Toth Inc. or “MTI” is a family-owned septic company in Battle Ground, WA that specializes in home and business septic installation. They have over 10 years-of-experience and use to consider themselves one of the main septic companies in the area but, now have a concern about the growing number of competitors. MTI feels in order to stay relevant they must make a change.

Must-haves: The re-brand must include a clever saying like we do the sh*tty work no one else wants to do!

Initially, after meeting with Mike & Bethany Toth, I began to empathize over their growing concern of steep competition. I knew I would need to start this project by learning as much as I could about their field and competition. 

  1. Analyze competition 
  2. Look for ways to stand out 
  3. Identify key messaging or “Differentiators”

MTI Contractors choose this BOLD logo and branding combination I created to replace their current brand. 

Challenge:

Originally, MTI came to me with a concept and idea of what they wanted their brand to look like but, after a little research, I discovered that was what everyone else was doing and it would help them with their goals of standing out against the competition. 

Next, I wanted to identify any concerns we had for moving forward. For instance, making sure they stood out against the competition. 

I knew the brand must:

  1. Stand out from the competition
  2. Make an instant emotional connection 
  3. Be easy to remember 
  4. Be funny, upbeat, and appealing to match the owner’s personality and to combat and “Sh*tty” stereotypes about working with poop. 
Process:

To get started I decided to run what I like to call a competitive analysis of their industry by comparing the branding, website and offerings of 10-20 other local septic companies to identify redundancies and opportunities.
