SmartWatt simultaneously worked to update their brand, collaborating with a firm called Emotive Brand, to improve their brand ethos, logo, and strategy.

It yielded a stronger execution having worked together, rather than meeting in the middle. Emotive Brand recognized the success of this partnership and, as a nod to that, continues to refer clients our way. We look forward to working together in the future, and are proud of the work we’ve created so far!
