We turn ideas into engaging and effective brand identities:

The cornerstones to building a memorable and timeless brand. 

Florville Catalyst creates engaging and effective brand identities — the cornerstones to building 

a memorable and timeless brand. 

 

Our branding solutions, in-a-glance, engage your audience, tell your story and advance your cause. 

They establish visual, intellectual and emotional connections that inspire action. 

 

We beleive a well-conceived brand identity should withstand the test of time. Our solutions, therefore, are timeless by design, never seeking to be trendy or garish. 

 

Here is a range of brand identities we’ve developed for diverse businesses and organizations. Take a 

look at our work. See how we think. View the branding solutions we create to provide our clients a 

compelling presence among their larger, better known competitors.

Merrill Lynch Supplier Diversity

 

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) initiatives are programs through which corporations engage minority and woman-owned businesses (MWBEs), which are not traditionally included, to a large extent, in the supply chain. Merrill’s commitment to expanding business opportunities for MWBEs is reflected in the magnitude of its procurement expenditures. 

 

Befitting the D&I branding theme “Equal Access to Opportunity”, the identity we created transforms the letter E into an equal sign, conveying equality and equal access, at-a-glance. The equal sign also subtly resonates with the quantitative nature of Merrill’s business. Across multiple print and web-based applications, the watermark of an equal sign brands Merrill D&I program and reiterates its mission.

Friends of Paradis des Indiens

Haiti became an independent nation in 1804, when it threw off French colonial control and slavery. In spite of trade embargoes, chronic instability, political unrests and natural disasters, Haitians have remained resilient, proud and creative, with a strong sense of nationalism and community.

 

Committed to Haiti’s economic development, Friends of PDI, a grassroots organization, promotes self-sufficiency in the country’s provinces by supporting artisanal entrepreneurship and the production of arts & crafts, embroidery and woodwork. In branding Friends of PDI, we developed an organic identity, portraying the alliance of the artisanal community and depicting the tactile, hands-on nature of their craft.

HighNote 

Allegra Marketing Services established an independent national brand of their own, entitled Highnote, a full-service production and marketing communications company. 

 

In the identity we developed, Highnote’s elevated magenta circle works together with the brand tagline —“Your Brand. Elevated.” — to create a sense of weightlessness, placing the client (“Your Brand”) at the center of the company’s focus.

JP Morgan Chase Supplier Diversity 

 

As part of its Supplier Diversity initiative, JPMorgan Chase created the Small Business Networking Program, producing a series of events which build business relationships and foster strategic partnerships among its diverse supplier base. 

 

Captured by the concept we created, a powerful, yet friendly identity projects the program’s mission, at-a-glance: collaboration, harmony and alliance, reflecting the brand tagline “Partnering for Success.”

NYCON helps New York’s nonprofits to build their capacity for growth and community impact. The organization is a powerful voice for the nonprofit sector and a one-stop resource for the tools and support services nonprofits need to succeed.

Forgotten Children of Haiti

Economic hardship, coupled with political instability, has compounded the impact of natural disasters on the condition of Haitian children, particularly in terms of health, education and welfare.

 

For over 30 years, FCH, a nonprofit organization, has been active in promoting good will, raising funds and making an overall impact in improving the lives of Haitian children.

 

In branding and helping FCH tell its story and strengthen its cause, the brand identity we developed captures vividly the reality of children that are unseen, unattended and abandoned, through the gradual effacement of a paper doll chain.

Admirals Lacrosse

In an effort to level the playing field, Admirals Lacrosse was conceived with a unique mission: Helping talented urban youths gain access to ivy league scholarships.

 

Befitting this objective, we developed a dynamic identity that captures the game multidimensional movements, incredibly fast-paced and quick-moving transitions, positioning the Admirals as a fierce competitor among ivy league Lacrosse teams.
