Bank Rebrand, Logo, Identity, & Video

First State Bank and Trust in Fremont, NE, in collaboration with UNANIMOUS, embarked on a transformative rebranding journey. The decision to rebrand was influenced by their merger with Two Rivers Bank. Both organizations sought a fresh name and brand that would authentically represent their shared vision and values.

Bank Brand Naming

UNANIMOUS invested extensive time and effort in researching and exploring brand names that not only captured the essence of both banks but also satisfied the legal requirements for trademark registration. This meticulous process was crucial to creating a solid foundation for the rebrand.

Bank Re-Branding Research

In addition to the trademark availability research, the team conducted comprehensive interviews with employees from both Two Rivers Bank and First State Bank & Trust. They also sought the insights of community members who had a stake in the bank's future. These interviews were instrumental in gaining a deeper understanding of both organization's values, history, and aspirations. They provided valuable input and feedback, allowing UNANIMOUS to tailor the rebrand to resonate with the employees and the communities they serve.
