What will happen when your business become an aquisition candidate? Will you sell your name as the brandname? The personal name may become a gray point to your possible Buyer?

I will be glad to have a conversation with you n that issue.

A new brandname is associated with a new entity. If you do not want ti lose your past brand recognition, plan ahead. well in advance, inform your stakeholders about your renaming process. Keep both names - the old and the new - living together in your web messages, for at least six months. A well planned and executed renaming process is the key to keep your practice healthy. If you want to know more, I will be happy to help you. I have a strong backgound on health brands.

When it comes to Naming an existing business we have to be more right to the point. No BS.
My recomendation to you is keep alive the DNA of your current name and revitalize it.
How to do it?

Alternative 1. Hire a Naming professional, someone with an impressing and relevant portfolio.

Alternative 2, Create yourself a new name: "scramble" your current name, combining letters and silabes. In hours you will get several name possibilities, hundreds.

Make a first selection,Ccheck the legal and domain names, Check the linguistics in all your future markests idioms. When you have the 10 possible candidates get my consultancy for a profisional evaluation. Then, take a firm decision. The dame is over. Les jeux sont faites.

Go ahead, you got a new KODAK brandname!. Enjoy !

A name is an achor. It gets stronger as the time passes as your brand equity grows. The decision "rename!" is imperative only when it becomes an objective imperative. Otherwise, there are several ways to overcomes minor issues. There is no general rule, each case is a case. Please let me know more about your name and business reasons to rename. I will be more than happy to help you Marco Rezende

BRANDING IS NO A BLACK AND WHITE FIELD. iT IS ART AND SCIENCE. You need experience, as I have after more than 30 years serving small to large brands

The idea of a fixed color for a logo is valid for medium or large size corporations. A start up may be smart and client focused.
The logo color is an instrument to talk to the customer heart. As long as it is consistent and planned in advance, a logo may have a color palette (an expessive one) and use it according to diferent audience. There is exempoles of Fortune 500s logo that follows such policy, for exemple: Apple, Citi, Coca Cola, Yahoo, Googlr.

This is what I call the Camaleon Law. In America, use red and blue, in Brasil, yellow and green, and so on.

I will be very happy to give you insight about how to build an effective brand identity.
