Solutia PSD is the global pharmaceutical business of American chemical company Solutia Inc. (SOI, NYSE). They appointed beBRAND to help devise a new brand strategy, uniting the various companies within their portfolio and therefore strengthening their market position.
The new strategy was as much an internal exercise as an external one. Solutia PSD has been acquiring specialist companies in Europe and the US, resulting in a disparate group of employees from different cultures and with different expectations. Bringing them together to serve clients more effectively was a key objective of the project.
The strategy provides Solutia PSD with a simplified set of tools through which to sell their services and a powerful brand to unite employees around the world. It will be brought to life later in 2003 once the creative phase has been completed.
beBRAND were appointed in February 2003 following discussions with brand consultants and agencies in the US, UK and Switzerland.

The identity consists of a graphic symbol (a ligature of the letters SOS) and a series of interchangeable words to fit the acronym depending on the specific application. Thus Shaken Or Stirred, Sweet Or Savoury, Seriously Organised Style etc.
