a strategic look into the
real bermuda

The rebrand began with a deep dive into the current Bermuda brand. In our research, we discovered four key insights:
  • People are looking to “live like a local” not just hit all of the tourist spots
  • Bermuda was not top of mind for travelers considering island vacations
  • Travelers are unaware that Bermuda has everything they’re looking for in a travel destination
  • The Bermuda brand had become unauthentic

The identity associated with the island centers on country clubs, rum swizzle, and pink beaches. That’s  been in the market for a hundred years, and while it’s true, there’s a swagger and sophistication that Bermuda hasn’t historically promoted.

proud is an understatement

We believed that if our  key markets knew the real Bermuda that travel intent would skyrocket for the island. Thankfully, our instincts were right. We were proud to raise average spending per visitor by 25% and receive the following awards.
