At the end of this stage, which is scheduled for the end of 2018, the brand name should be formed, and, taking into account the diversified business of the company, the architecture of the brand family as a whole.

- At the research stage, we will analyze Russian and foreign markets, business portfolios of companies of Metafrax Group, which will help us to understand the architecture of the family of brands. After the analysis, we will proceed to the creation of a positioning strategy and a brand platform. And only after that we will proceed to the stage of visualization and design, - says Beso Turazashvili, CEO of the agency Electric Creative.
