The VierBike Brand Story

The branding process for this quadracycle—a bicycle with four wheels—began in our parking lot—no kidding!

First we needed to create a brand name. Our team kicked off their creative naming session by taking this unique bike for a spin. They snapped a few photos while they were at it for fun and inspiration.

“Yo! G‘morning, John!” Fred called above the din of the construction site. “You’re hard at it already! What’s up with bulldozing these piles of ground around here? And what is that stack of shingles doing over there? Oh, I see you have some nailed to those pieces of plywood. What’s with that coil of PEX pipe with a faucet on the end?

"I'd like you to head over to a sales meeting at..."

“Hey, Don,” Walter greeted his brand-new employee, who was dressed in work pants and dirty boots, “I’d like you to go out to Newbie’s this afternoon and ask for a meeting with their purchasing agent.
