It was exciting to literally start from scratch in working with Wabash Valley to give this revolutionary line of products the personality and character it deserves

Fort Wayne, Ind., April 19, 2007 -- LaBov & Beyond has partnered with client Wabash Valley Manufacturing Co. on the launch of Urbanscape, its new brand of design-savvy commercial outdoor furniture and site amenities.
LaBov & Beyond and Wabash Valley Manufacturing, based in Silver Lake, Ind., teamed up to launch Urbanscape in March 2007. The brand launch team at LaBov created an approach uniquely tailored for Urbanscape and its distinctive style of durable commercial benches, planters and refuse receptacles.
Wabash Valley Manufacturing and LaBov & Beyond worked closely on virtually all internal and external aspects of the Urbanscape launch, including:
- Development of the Urbanscape name, along with its logo and tagline
- Comprehensive Urbanscape brand assessment
- Urbanscape Web site (urbanscapefurniture.com) and other interactive components, including a pre-launch blog
- Myriad of printed materials, including product catalogs and brochures
- Advertising and marketing materials
"I used to think photography was just that--pictures--until I saw what the creative team at LaBov & Beyond was capable of," says Leslie Brouyette, Urbanscape's director of sales and marketing. "And LaBov's impact on the launch of Urbanscape has been felt through more than just its creative vision. The entire account and project team made sure every aspect of this launch was completely thought out, and they approached it from every angle. And we think the results speak for themselves."
The Urbanscape brand is centered around 15 uniquely designed collections that offer architects, planners and purchasing agents a myriad of options depending on the design needs and goals of a project. The distinct aesthetic styling of Urbanscape combines with its unmatched durability--thanks to an industry-leading powder-coating process and faux-wood finishes--to make an immediate impact on the commercial outdoor furniture market.
"It was exciting to literally start from scratch in working with Wabash Valley to give this revolutionary line of products the personality and character it deserves," says Chris Swymeler, LaBov & Beyond's co-creative director. "Our creative approach ensured that the philosophy behind Urbanscape would be clearly communicated to dealers and consumers."
