CHALLENGE

Challenge

In 1996, when UTIMCO first opened its doors, it required an annual report to show investors the value of their investment management. The company spent two years searching for the right design team before finding a reliable partner with TruBrand. UTIMCO approached us, seeking attractive reports and branding collateral to leave a lasting impression. Our creative work has continued to impress for over two decades as TruBrand has remained its steady partner through rebranding the company, 2 website redesigns, 25 annual report packages, providing all of their communication collateral, original photography, and years of successful growth.

GENERATIONS OF PHOTOGRAPHY TAKEN

At TruBrand, we pride ourselves on providing customized artwork and experiences for our clients. One way we deliver this is with our original photography services. Many media agencies rely solely on digital stock images that can impersonalize a company’s brand.

Throughout the past 25 years, we have supported UTIMCO’s growing staff with annual photoshoots capturing employee work lifestyle and committee imagery, taking architectural images of their office’s high design, and CEO-featured photos and staff headshots. The original photography that we shoot conveys the authenticity of the brand and highlights the people that work for UTIMCO.

Results

Since beginning its long-term relationship with TruBrand, UTIMCO has increased the size of its endowment funds under management significantly, from $11 billion in 1999 to $70 billion in 2023. Their staff has grown from under 20 to 121 employees. While we are not responsible for their excellent investment strategies or successes, it has been an honor to have been able to support them, and their marketing needs every step of the way for the past 25 years. Our long-term relationship has outlasted seven of their CEO terms (including two interim CEOs) and is going strong.

We look forward to the new projects on board for 2024.
