Secure, Seamless, Quality Entertainment, Without Middlemen

CHALLENGE

Pitching blockchain solutions to investors in exchange for tokens is never an easy task. Armed with only a strong existing business without a clear story, our team needed to start virtually from scratch.

HOW WE HELPED

Working together with their Chief Commercial Officer, we wrote and designed a new story pitting their start up against giants like Netflix and conventional cable to show the eventual evolution of the entertainments space. The result was a beautiful visual story that captivated the hearts of investors.

Testimonial

I’m confident to say that the HighSpark team members are the best in their craft – I have never once been disappointed by their quality, delivery, or their consistency. I have witnessed how they were able to design a narrative about Blockchain to be simple, persuasive and elegant, and if they were able to do that, they can do anything.

Case Study

Auston Institute, a newcomer in the private education space in Singapore approached us to help them sharpen their sales kit used to introduce the institution to prospective international students.

Auston: Education For Makers

In Singapore’s competitive education landscape – there are heavyweight public universities like NUS, SMU, NTU along with a myriad of other private institutions all vying for the same students. Filling a student body cohort requires more than generic messaging and pitches, it demands a strong, unique story and positioning.

BUILDING A UNIQUE, PERSUASIVE SALES KIT

Identifying Auston’s Unique Proposition In A Crowded Market

CHALLENGE

Auston Institute was a newcomer to the private education space and faced difficulty identifying their differentiating factors in the industry. Their existing sales presentation used to pitch to partners and prospective students sorely needed a visual and structural re-design.

HOW WE HELPED

We took apart the Auston identity, conducted primary research on other competitors within the local education space. What we found was that Auston boasted several competencies and industry affiliations in Engineering and technical courses that stood out as a value-add to their customers. We gave their presentation a visual face lift as well as re-wrote the fundamental story they were telling to others.

RESULT

Auston walked away with a story that their internal teams could align to and consistently tell to external stakeholders. Personal pitches made to prospectives students of the school grew more successful and the school has managed to solidify its foothold in the local market.

Credentials Presentation Case Study: A*Star

Case Study

A*STAR CREDENTIALS PRESENTATION

The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) is Singapore’s lead public sector agency that spearheads economic-oriented research to advance scientific discovery and develop innovative technology. We had the opportunity to help their infocomm arm (I2R) develop a credentials deck to facilitate new partnerships.

POSITIONING THE CUTTING EDGE

Doing Justice to A*Star’s Innovations 

It can be challenging to make an organisation run dominantly by brilliant scientists sound relevant and interesting to a layperson audience. Digging deep into what made the agency special and paying tribute to their top minds and fellows was the goal of our engagement.

heavy complexity, made clear

Transforming The Verbose Into Visual

CHALLENGE

A*Star I²R regularly has its teams interact with external parties outside the organisation – whether its for commercialisation requirements, partnership discussions or company introductions, they lacked a clear and persuasive presentation to describe their company and brand.

HOW WE HELPED

We interviewed numerous technical experts and strategists within the organisation to suss out the key messages of what made their innovations special. These were then translated into a structure coupled with case studies and visuals. The presentation was adopted and adapted by the organisation of more than 100 employees.
