Recent work

Honeywell Research Chemicals

Following a new business acquisition by Honeywell in 2016, a new brand was born. Honeywell Research Chemicals brings together all of Honeywell’s analytical and reagent brands and businesses under one global entity.  

Purple created the brand identity in 2016 and has worked with Honeywell Research Chemicals to bring the new business to markets around the globe.

Discover the Perfect Formula

Purple was challenged with defining a new brand and identity that conveyed the strength and vision of Honeywell to the research chemicals audience. This included the “go to” market strategy, launch campaign and global multimedia plan and execution.

The ‘Perfect Formula’ campaign was designed to establish a distinctive “ownable” brand idea, as well as communicate the coming together of the various Honeywell owned brands. By using the language of chemistry the campaign connected with the target audience: scientists and researchers.

 The campaign included trade print, digital display, PPC, programmatic and social  media, receiving favourable comment both internally and with clients and partners.
