Launching On-Demand Healthcare During a Pandemic
When one of the nation’s leading labs, BioReference Laboratories, Inc. (BioReference) reached out to Code and Theory, the world was reeling from the COVID-19 outbreak. With patient anxiety at an all time high, the pandemic highlighted the need for healthcare providers to expand their remote and at-home healthcare and diagnostics offerings. BioReference already had a mobile blood testing prototype that would bring lab sample collection services to patients on-demand⏤but they needed Code and Theory to name it, brand it, and introduce it to the world.
First, we defined the brand positioning, key messages, and gave it a name: Scarlet. The name Scarlet confidently reflects BioReference's expertise in blood testing, while bringing a human touch and consumer-friendly feel to the brand. Our positioning addressed the needs of both patients and healthcare providers, centering around Scarlet’s key benefits of ease, simplicity, safety, and seamlessness. We then created a logo and identity system that brought the brand to life and built a cohesive brand experience across their ecosystem, including the website, launch emails, sales materials, and internal communications.
