Visual Identity
A brand’s visual identity communicates important symbolic messages that cannot be
conveyed by words alone. Color palettes, graphics, and images bring brand
characteristics to life clearly, consistently, and distinctively.
Market research with physicians in the US and EU showed a strong ability for our visual
components to communicate our brand promise in a unique and compelling way. There
may be some instances where customization of the visual depiction is desired but the 3
main components of the concept are needed to communicate the brand promise.
The 3 main components to the SNM visual concept include:
1. The Bathroom City
2. The “Road”
3. The Patient
Displaying Sacral Neuromodulation
Visual Identity: The Bathroom City
The bathroom city represents the problem we want to address: an oppressive frame of
mind in which a patient is constantly concerned
with locating bathrooms.
In this execution, the generic city is depicted
as dark and oppressive, symbolizing a place
of constant worry from which the patient
wants to escape.
In this execution, another generic bathroom city
was developed using actual bathroom doors
Both executions illustrate a crowded,
overwhelming location with multiple and
clearly defined bathroom symbols
Displaying Sacral Neuromodulation
Visual Identity: The “Road”
• The “road” is a second critical component of the visual
concept and represents movement away from the problem
• The road should originate from the bathroom city and exit
off the page to symbolize ongoing symptom control
Displaying Sacral Neuromodulation
Visual Identity: The Patient
• The patient is the final critical component of the concept
illustrating the goal: freedom from the constant worry
• The patient should be shown being transported away from the
bathroom city on the road
• The expression and/or activity of the patient should be
aspirational and represent a new freedom
Displaying Sacral Neuromodulation
Global Execution
While the concept does allow
for some variation in local
execution, such as a more
realistic depiction of the road for
US patient materials or
localization of the patient for a
specific geography, this
representation of the concept
should be used to consistently
display our global brand at
conventions where SNM and
our target audiences are the
primary focus.

Global Abstract Execution
In some cases, a complimentary abstract version of the concept may be needed:
• Where multiple tactics that leverage the concept are used in a singular location,
such as a convention booth
• Where a more scientific or clinical approach is needed
• Where a tactic does not have space for full disclosure requirements and therefore
can’t support inclusion of our main headline
