Retego

Water testing has remained in two worlds: Field testers who drive large trucks containing hundreds of gallons of catalysts, and plumbers using a small pH strip designed to sell you a water softener. Retego created tests with cuvets of freeze-dried catalysts. This utilizes smaller amounts of water and provides more accurate, near-immediate results.

INCLUDES Naming. Identity creation. Branding. Collateral. Tradeshow.

The name Retego is an invented moniker founded on adaptations of Latin uncover or reveal.

Process and conceptual thinking
The concept behind the mark was based on the proprietary cuvet containing the freeze-dried catalysts used in Retego’s water testing process.

Brand Application

One of Retego’s largest markets are field testing companies. The people who are out testing waters in remote, often less-than-hospitable environments. Sturdy gloves, hats and thermoses are happily received. The Retego vans are another issue – for some reason they don’t like handing those out as much.
