The creation of HAIGuard was a unique branding challenge. Follow along as we detail the obstacles, strategies, and results we achieved during this project.

The exisiting brands were all recognizable within their respective markets. These brands could not be eliminated, but instead needed to evolve.
We create “Mind Maps” to help discover relevant terms and word fragments to aid in name creation.
Brand design candidates
The following slides showcase some of the name and design concepts we created during the branding process. Ultimately, HAIGuard was chosen due to the recognizable nature of the HAI acronym (Hospital Acquired Infection) within the medical field.
Due to one of the key obstacles being the recognition of the existing brand names, it was imperative that the old logos be evolved to visually unify with the new HAIGuard Logo. We accomplished this by employing font and color consistency as well as a simplification of each design while retaining their original essence.

A new brand and website allowed Curtain Care to become more widely recognized as a leader in reducing HAI via their multitude of expertise and innovations outside of just curtains. This has opened the doors within existing systems to new verticals who were unaware they were already doing business with HAI reduction experts.
