Academy of Television Arts & Sciences commissions Siegel+Gale to refresh its brand
September 26, 2013
– Global strategic branding firm Siegel+Gale (www.siegelgale.com) today announced a partnership with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to review the brand, garner insights about the direction of the organization and redefine its role in the community.
While best known for its involvement with the Primetime Emmy® Awards, the Television Academy provides tremendous value to the television industry through its member association by promoting thought leadership, curating industry trends and serving as a valuable trade organization to drive career enhancement. The Television Academy also preserves and celebrates the history of television through its Foundation, which is focused on creating opportunities for aspiring and young professionals.
The nation knows and recognizes the Emmys, but few are aware of the larger organization behind the distinguished celebration. Through this engagement, Siegel+Gale aims to position the Television Academy in parallel with the renowned awards program, and to celebrate the organization's other achievements.
"We have three very distinct audiences, and need a story that unites our different associations and defines our role in the future of television," said Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and chief executive officer of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. "Siegel+Gale is renowned for helping organizations clarify and tell their stories, and we look forward to positioning the Television Academy as an influential partner in the evolving entertainment landscape."
Siegel+Gale is working closely with Television Academy staff and board members to understand how stakeholders interact with the brand during each touchpoint—from applying for membership, to interacting with staff, to attending events. Through this immersion, Siegel+Gale will develop a brand strategy that joins the Television Academy's various audiences and propels it into the future.
"The Television Academy is an iconic association with a fantastic story to tell," said Jason Cieslak, president, Pacific Rim of Siegel+Gale. "This is a very exciting time for television, and with a clear story, the Television Academy will be primed to expand its profile as a year-round brand."
Siegel+Gale (www.siegelgale.com) is the simplicity company. We seek it, defend it and embrace it in everything we do to help brands reach their true potential. Simplicity is the centerpiece of the strategies we develop that reveal the unique truths of an organization, the engaging stories we create that connect brands with their audiences and the meaningful experiences we deliver that are both unexpectedly fresh and remarkably clear.
Since 1969, Siegel+Gale has championed simplicity for leading corporations, nonprofits and government organizations worldwide. We have offices in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Hamburg, Riyadh, Dubai, Shanghai and Beijing, but we're willing to fly just about anywhere. We're also not alone.
