What's a recent success story?
In 2018, Nemo partnered with Alterra Mountain Company to create a new brand for a multi-destination ski pass. The challenge was to make the client stand out in a market dominated by a competitor with a 10-year head start. After careful research and data analysis, Nemo designed a brand to appeal to consumers’ shared values, highlighting the unique attributes of global destinations. It developed the brand name, identity and messaging systems, guidelines, seasonal marketing strategies, content and physical experiences. The result was a successful brand launch with growth in the Ikon Pass community year over year. Nemo continues to partner with Ikon Pass to bring fresh ideas, strategies and content to keep the community energized and stoked for each winter season.
