ABILITYLAB

New Brand = New Digital Presence

Problem

Creating a digital experience that will represent the new brand, the new hospital  and the AbilityLab’s medical expertise across numerous audiences. 

 

 

Background

Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago is a leader in the rehabilitation medicine. They have outgrown their current physical space in Chicago. They are currently building a state of the art facility that is going to define rehabilitation medicine in the 21st century. Such a transformation required a major rebrand, which included new name, AbilityLab, and new brand identity with the distinctive visual language. 

Insight

The culture of AbilityLab is a maker one. The maker culture is all about creating custom solutions for everyday problems. Since no injury is the same, each patient requires individual attention and rehabilitation plan. AbilityLab’s employees work hard to find the best possible outcome for their patients. 

PROCESS

We started out with research, which consisted of a deep look at AbilityLab
