Teledyne FLIR - Branding, Strategy and Creative


With over 25 years of history, Teledyne FLIR are giants – and market leaders – in the design and production of thermal imaging cameras and sensors. Working across industries such as Public Safety, Defence, Smart Cities and Research & Development, they specialise in perception and awareness enhancing systems and technologies.

Teledyne FLIR came to us when one of their core verticals, comprising two-thirds of their business, needed promotion. As the first communication activity for this vertical, marketing materials and campaigns had to be created from scratch. We therefore needed to take a strategic approach to address their needs, and created a brand strategy that looked at their 5 core audiences and their specific needs. We looked at their core competitors and the market landscape to identify FLIR’s potential point of difference, before creating their positioning proposition and a strategic messaging framework to provide the foundations and strategic tools upon which to base a campaign. Once strategy was signed off, we then moved on to creative concepts for the new look and feel for the condition monitoring market, which they have been using ever since.


With little pre-existing information from a strategic or a marketing point of view, or previous campaigns or audience insights, we had to identify these aspects from the ground up. We started from scratch to create a strategic creative platform for FLIR to utilise for future campaigns and for years to come.
