Watertown, MA , April 16, 2008 - Corey McPherson Nash (CMN), a leading national branding and design firm based in Watertown, Massachusetts, announced today that it has been hired by iRobot Corporation, the well-known creator and manufacturer of behavior-based robots that help people complete complex tasks. CMN has been tapped to create an over-arching "brand induction" program, one that successfully links the market identities of iRobot's consumer and government/industrial divisions.
"We're honored to bring our award-winning brand expertise to a company of iRobot's stature," said Chris Klaehn, CMN Partner and Director of Brand Strategy. "Not only have they created the best selling consumer robot in history, the Roomba, but they currently have over 1400 military robots in the field in Iraq and Afghanistan, saving many soldiers' lives in the process."
CMN's charge is to create a cohesive brand strategy between the two divisions, culminating in an overall brand book that expresses the DNA behind iRobot. This undertaking will include overall brand strategy, comprehensive messaging and systems design that will insure both visual and verbal consistency.
Founded in 1990 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology roboticists, iRobot Corp. specializes in behavior-based robots that help people complete tasks with better results. Powered by iRobot's unique AWARE™ Robot Intelligence Systems, the company's robots can navigate in complex and dynamic real-world situations.
