Spectrum Science Communications has unveiled new branding, which includes an updated logo, website and positioning. As part of the changes, the agency has launched what it calls the Spectrumtific Method, a proprietary methodology that the agency says is intended to help clients connect with audiences by identifying the “unique human truth” that drives behavior change. This becomes the foundation for delivering channel-agnostic, intermedia executions that move audiences in the desired direction. The new branding is meant “to reflect the company’s evolution and current position in the marketplace,” according to Spectrum owner and CEO Jonathan Wilson.
