“Wyng is a digital marketing pioneer and their new brand tells a story that is bold, smart, and innovative. The MBLM team was very proud to have been involved in telling that story,” stated Mario Natarelli, MBLM’s managing partner.
MBLM’s multidisciplinary team leveraged Brand Intimacy archetypes of identity and enhancement to create a new brand experience. A brand positioning centered around the idea of tribes of influence was crafted to give a unique focus to the company. From this direction, a new name, Wyng was chosen along with a fresh, distinct design.
“As Wyng, we’ve aligned to reflect the true breadth and value of our platform for brands and agencies, while advancing our investment in campaign data through predictive modeling. With our new name comes a new mission: elevate consumer influence,” stated Wyng CEO, John Yapaola.
