Each organization has a unique way of doing things — and branding is no different. It could be updating a message that no longer reflects your vision. Maybe it’s reimagining your brand identity to inspire new audiences. Or refreshing a website to keep up with the times. DISTINC_ is where it all starts. There are no rules, templates, or shortcuts. It’s about crafting your values-based brand to help you connect with your story, empower you to organize, and inspire you to drive your brand forward.

Place imagination center stage.

Boston Court Pasadena

You don’t have to change your name to change the conversation. There are 99-seat theaters. There are intimate venues for experimental music. But only one Boston Court. The new brand for Boston Court Pasadena overwrites a long-standing name challenge. It also launches a bold mark designed to playfully blend genres in ways that are as unexpected, adventurous, and unconventional as the programs themselves.

“DISTINC’s work has resulted in epic progress for Boston Court. Honoring 15 years of history, while simultaneously pushing us to challenge long-held beliefs and look to the future is no small feat, and Jean-Marc and his team did this with creativity, flexibility, humor, and intelligence. Their process was revelatory for both Board and Staff members, opening the door to difficult, but needed conversations, and the results have brought renewed excitement and energy to both our internal planning, as well as to our public image.”
— Kyle Clausen, Executive Director at Boston Court Pasadena
