Last month, our company completed our rebrand, and we announced our name change from Eyemaginations to Rendia. Our new brand identity was the result of defining our company’s purpose and values, guided by Baltimore-based branding agency, Backroom. Here are some things we learned from our fresh start that you can apply to your practice.
- Brand is much more than a logo. Your brand is a representation of your core values and should guide every business decision. This comes through in interactions customers have with your organization. By providing consistent experiences, you not only strengthen your brand, you foster trust. For example, we regularly produce new, relevant videos (like the ones below) as part of our commitment to helping doctors provide the best experience for their patients.
- You need to focus. In the same way that multi-tasking is less productive than doing one thing at a time, having various missions weakens your brand and can be confusing for both employees and customers. Our decision to rebrand emerged when we realized that we had various goals. As a result, we prioritized. It wasn’t easy, but once we focused on our brand promise, we became more streamlined and effective.
- Employees are the brand champions. The people who work for your organization are responsible for bringing your brand to life. Whether they’re making business decisions, supporting your customers, creating your product, or delivering your service, employees’ actions carry your brand. In order to empower our team to take ownership of our new brand, we hosted a company-wide interactive training event to start putting values into practice.

Hypertensive retinopathy: the pressure is on
As one of the most common health conditions in the US, you probably see your fair share of patients with hypertension. However, many people don’t realize that uncontrolled high blood pressure can damage the retinal arteries and cause vision damage. Our latest video, “Hypertensive Retinopathy”, explains the risk of high blood pressure to eyesight, and encourages patients to take action in controlling their hypertension. We appreciate Dr. Peter Rozanec of Port Credit Optometry Clinic and Michelle Erickson of Cambridge Eye Associates for advising us on this topic.
